  1. I got a solid 20+ solo miles on the Southie Trails yesterday. Came across less than 10 other riders and just a few walkers. Everything was beautiful and green. After a fairly rough week (for me personally), it was good for my soul.
  2. When I first started riding, I rode Muleshoe every Monday. It was a great place to learn (also the first place I received a real injury.) Also, tell your wife to be on the lookout for Ride Like a Girl. It should be starting some time this Spring. It is a great program for women who want to learn to mountain bike or to improve their skills.
  3. The park really has improved over the last couple of years. I don't know that I will ever be able to remember the new loop names--they'll always be A-E and that other trail with the labyrinth in my mind.
  4. The time change along with awesome weather merit a trip up north for me this week. Who all is in?
  5. How old is your kid? I ask because at some point she probably should learn to do some of this bike maintenance herself and changing tubes would probably be easier for her than refreshing Stan's or Orange Seal. Another option would be to convert her bike just for this trip and then switch it back to tubes when you get back.
  6. A couple of weeks ago a couple of nice bikes were stolen at Maudi's in Bee Cave as well.
  7. If I remember correctly, entrance is free to all of the state parks there. We rode Devil's Den a couple of years ago. It was a fun little trail.
  8. Yes. I was having trouble starting the topic--the program wouldn't let me post anything but a link, thus a picture of my bike in Michigan (which obviously is not Banff.) After a bit of effort, I can now post.
  9. Hoss is doing the Tour Divide this summer. I will be driving with him up to Banff to see him off. My plan is to travel to Antelope Wells via Jeep, camping and mountain biking along the way. I'll spend a few days in Banff, then go to Waterton Township for a day. After that, it's on to Glacier National Park for four or five days. I'll work my way south with stops in Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. I'm looking for suggestions for great places to ride and camp. I have a general idea of where I want to go, but I don't want to miss something super interesting or cool.
  10. We have stayed in this house twice and absolutely love it. The owner is a teacher and realtor (in case you are looking to buy a place.)
  11. It's an easy enough trail, though it can be climby in places (nothing like Mt. Lakeway, however.) It easy to get "lost" if you don't know the trail. I suggest you post up to the LAME group asking for a route. I'd send you a gpx, but I can't remember the last time I rode the entire trail. Maybe Austin Bike has one?
  12. Bump, thanks to those who have already volunteered. We still need quite a few course marshals and leg markers/water hand-ups.
  13. The ARR Pace Bend Race is in two weeks and they still need a lot of volunteers. It's a fun way to give back to the organization that does so much for our local mountain bike scene. Come out, camp, and be a part of the fun! https://www.bikereg.com/pbr-volunteers
  14. Oh, and rattlesnakes, too. We saw one on the upper loop at Flat Rock yesterday. (By we saw one, I mean Hoss may have run over it almost catching its tail in his rear wheel and Karen actually saw the thing.)
