Here's a new variation of the tried and true Blacks Fort route. Starting at the Elementary School in Bertram, we'll head north toward Joppa, make a swing by Blacks Fort and the continue ... moreon to Lampasas. Mid-point store stop in Lampasas to refuel before we head south for the return leg. Optional water stop in Lake Victor on the return (mile 44). Low traffic and bucolic vistas make this one of my favorite routes. Well worth the drive. Expect moderate rollers with 2500 ft of climbing and classic Texas chip seal. There is a 45 mile option with a water stop in Lake Victor, no store stop.

Helmets are mandatory. Plan to arrive by 7:45AM to sign-in, get ready, and participate in the safety briefing. The ride departs at 8:00AM sharp. Fuel and facilities stop at the midpoint. Minimum of 2 bottles or hydration pack required. This is a hosted ride for the 64 mile route.

Meet around back at the Bertram Elementary School, 315 Main Street in Bertram.
