By Kevzam 3/27/2017 5 minutes

Open Track Rides begin at the Circuit of the Americas (9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd., Austin, TX 78617) on April 4th, 2017 6:00-8:00PM for 10 straight Tuesday Nighter sessions.

Let us welcome challenge you to take the opportunity to come ride your bicycle outdoors on the 3.4 mile COTA race track. This is a wide, safe course with a challenging hill after the start/finish line that approaches 12-14% grade. Please make sure that your bicycle is in good working order and you have proper gearing to help crest the climb. We're excited to invite our Pedal Hard clients to ride with one of our Pedal Hard coaches and cycling club representatives. Joel Rierson, has also extended an invite to his fellow State of Texas co-workers to come out and use this as an after work wellness opportunity to ride bikes at a world class track. 

THERE IS NO PARKING FEE! People can arrive after 5:00pm. There will be signage to lead people to the appropriate parking area. There will be food, beer and live music in the paddock area. Picnic tables under a shaded awning.

There will most likely be multiple clinic offerings in future weeks by Super Squadra, Pedal Hard Austin and a Women's Specific clinic.
