Hi y'all,
 
I haven't seen a thread that is a collection of local rides so I figured I'd start one and hopefully people would add to it!
 
I usually ride with a small group of 2-5 friends and, for bigger rides, I will ride with a group called Sons of Technology because they're really welcoming and like the scenic cruises.
 
Here's the list (Google Maps):

Volente / Lime Creek Road - twisty roads, first run should be a scouting ride
 
Jonestown Loop / Rolling Thunder - easy cruise, very scenic
 
Devil’s Backbone / Blanco to Wimberly - hit and miss on this on, not a lot of turns
 
Roller Coaster Loop / Pedernales Fall Park - easy cruise, very scenic
 
Post Road - super chill ride, great for by yourself or group of 2-3
 
Ride to The Oasis - scenic route ending at The Oasis
 
Overlook Park / Gruene River Grill - great viewpoint at Overlook Park
 
Spicewood Springs Road - more easy-going and scenic ride
 
The Three Sisters / The Twisted Sisters - thanks @e30kawi for this suggestion
 
Wimberly / Driftwood - Nice 2-hour ride
 
Old San Antonio Road - Quick ride to satisfy that itch
 
Any suggestions on route revisions/feedback or new routes are welcomed!

You do you and I'll do me.

You should ride 473 out to comfort and ride the three sisters out there. Lots of fun.

here's one of my favorite east side loops...pretty low car traffic in general on a lot of those roads plus the bonus of having Snow's BBQ in Lexington be your half way point...
