I'm hosting the classic Dripping Springs To Wimberley ride with a few twists. Sorry for the late posting. No low water crossings, so we do not take the first right on Creek road but ... morekeep going and take a right on Prichnow road (sign posted for MT Gyanor lodge).

We will come out and do a left on Purlsley road which will align with the route people are maybe more familar with.
Then right on Mt Sharp road and right again on Mt Sharp road, as opposed to straight on to Pump road, this is a deviation to what people maybe used to but is a beautiful addition and adds some more climbing.

I intend to ride along River road and HW12 to see the best of Wimberly, then a store stop at the usual gas station opposite HEB.

This ride comes in at 56.6 miles and 3000ft so it is not for the novice and
will be ridden at a fairly aggressive pace 16+ average.

I plan to host from the front with re-group points at key junctions.

Unfortunately RWGPS would not co-operate as far as providing a map.
So I only have a Strava link available, which can only be accessed if you have upgraded Strava membership.
I can email a TCX file if you drop me your email.

Please no requests for ride changes at this late date.
Thanks

Posting Drippingsprings to Blanco again. Last time we had issue with crossing Blanco on Red Coral Ranch Rd. checked last Friday and it was dry (see picture) assuming recent rains will ... morenot change status.

Forecast looks good but a bit cooler, so dress accordingly.

Not been riding so not planning on a agressive ride other than having to get over the hills.

Very much an out and back route only overlaps with our usual Dripping to Wimberly ride a for a few miles at the start. We hit some great country roads "Red Coral Ranch rd" and '"Chimney Valley rd" which parrallel the Blanco for a number of miles. A stretch into Blanco ~5 miles on FM165 where we need to go single file but should be fine for a Sunday ride.

Overall about 2800ft of climbing but mainly rolling no really step sections. Not planning on a killer pace and lots of easy re-group points at the major junctions.

One store stop in Blanco at the turn around point.

We can discuss lunch options after the ride if anyone is interested.

For those of you who want a Strava link see path below.

https://www.strava.com/routes/11488966

Avoids water crossings for the most part a few on "Red Chimney ranch rd" but easy to spot and unlikely to be an issue.
