I can't ride as I am covering event but if your bored Saturday I'll be at the shop (bicycle sport shop). We'll also have an area in the expo in conjunction with Treks booths. Anyway, it will be a madhouse.

Link will give adress, phone, map (central/south location). Basically were off a major north/south street named Lamar just South of Riverside--Riverside runs east west along town lake near and is close (2 miles) to downtown/convention center.

We've had beautiful weather this week in Austin (mid 80's), and hopefully it will hold up. Yesterday they were forecasting mid 60's for Sunday with a chance of rain, but I see now they're saying mid 70's. I did a century last weekend in Round Rock, TX, and have had my last two fingers on one hand tingling ever since, so I hope I don't have a problem with this on Sunday. The RftR route looks pretty flat, as it's east of Austin (the hill country really starts just west of Austin). Also looking forward to the cool Bike Expo!

I'm doing it. This will be my first century. I did 70 last year. I will try to take my camera along and post some pics afterwards.
I'll do the Expo but not the ride....Asphalt Addict

because I had surgery on my chest in two places for skin cancer (two four inch incisions) and can't train. Oh well. For those doing the ride, remember to use plenty of sun screen and have fun!

I live in Austin so I don't have much of an excuse to miss it. 70 miles for me.
