Queer Ride - Queens For The Crown Race
Wednesday Sep 13 7:00pm in Austin
#QueerRide ~ The weekly ride for queer folk & allies!

Gather at the south gates of the Capitol on 11th St. facing Congress at 7:00pm. Wheels down at 7:30pm.

This week we'll be joining Chris & John for the Crown Race!

Our pitstop is Spokesman, and Wednesdays are Wheels Down Wednesdays, so it's Happy Hour all day for those who arrive on two wheels. Taps 1-4 are $3 and wine is $1 off.

Ride Leader: Evan, Mid: Ed, Sweep: Jack

PITSTOP: Spokesman, 440 E. St. Elmo A-2, Austin, TX 78745
DESTINATION: Violet Crown Social Club, 1111 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78702
ROUTE: see Crown Race route

Bring your friends, helmets, lights & locks! We will do our best to stop and mass up when we can. If you lose the group, rejoin at one of our pitstops or meet us at the destination! QR rides AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We avoid sidewalks as much as possible. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way, and don't block extra lanes at intersections. We share the road with all vehicles. We own the right lane fully if there is no bike lane or if the bike lane is hazardous.

We ALWAYS yield to pedestrians on crosswalks, sidewalks and trails. Ring your bells or call out “ON YOUR LEFT” as you pass pedestrians!

Listen for call-outs like "car up" or "stopping" or "left/right turn", and echo them back for riders behind you. Holler “CAR BACK!” loud and clear.

Review for good luck.
