Austin riders

The last I heard they were doing construction on Parmer north of 1431 taking away one of our good out and back rides. Are they done with this yet?

There is still some construction going on out there but it is open to ride. There seems to be a lot of "road debris" on the shoulder in certain areas. The wind is usually from the south so keep that in mind if you start out riding north. Don't let the construction stop you from riding.

Do you mean On Ronald Regan Blvd.? I put in around Crystal Falls and go out from there. Smooth sailing.

I was up there a few weeks ago and there's some construction but it appears to be drainage work to the side of the road. I recall one spot where they have those white cement formed barriers...maybe 2 -3 of them...but you're still able to ride between them and the white line of the shoulder...nothing that pushes you into the traffic lanes.

Its all clear now. Barriers came down last week.. (the last one that was up). Did the bicycle sport shop ride from store to Andice and back and had a great time. Hopefully they will get some sweepers out there to cleanup soon, certainly not counting on rain to clean it up

A sweeper was out there last friday 6-29. He was going toward 29 from the end of the road where the extension is being added.
Don't know how far he made it before going back--maybe 29???
