Weekly group rides longer than ~40 miles in Austin?

I do the long Jack & Adams weekly Sunday ride and the monthly Austin Duathletes ride, but I'm looking for something longer. I'm trying to get ready for the Hotter'N Hell 100 in late August, and a 35-45 mile ride isn't going to cut it.

I've started tacking on some additional, solo distance, but I'd rather put in a solid 60-70 with a group.

Anyone know of any regular weekend rides that are over 50 miles?

I live in Georgetown and for the past 3 years have organized Hotter N' Hell training prep rides.
It is a small group of 3-5 riders, but we did 73 miles last Sat., and will do 80-85 miles on 8/1, and another 85 on 8/15. We are not fast, and average 15-16 on these rides. If you want to join our small group, let me know and I will add you to my list that I provide maps to.

I'll be in Seattle on 8/1, but I might be interested in the 8/15 ride. I'll PM you my e-mail address. Thanks!
