Madrone

Recommended Posts

We're thinking about hitting up Madrone at canyon lake sunday the 26th. Been a bit and need to get back out there before the weather turns to dogshit.

10-11 AM

Deborah got home today, and she's feeling really good. If she is OK with me being gone that day I'm in.

Crap, I thought this was nine days from now. No way I can make it two days from now.

should be nice and dry by then, and is always a fun ride.  I usually try to get out here once or twice a week along with flat rock which are my two go to trails.

It is worth the drive, but short, so ride it twice, once in each direction. Then you have a 15-16 mile ride without really duplicating anything.

Ridden it quite a few times, but its been a couple years since last there (nasty crash). My wife has two go-to trails and one is slaughter creek and other is madrone. I prefer madrone as there's some bonus lines to keep things interesting. We usually do 2-3 laps of slaughter for fitness only. 

Her bonus lines are margaritas at the marina afterward😄

As much as I'd like to go, I'm going to be sticking to trails closer to home for a while until I fully recover from my injury. I'm pretty much riding all the same stuff now, but nowhere near the level I was riding pre-injury. Also my ass starts hurting after about an hour-and-a-half. Rode yesterday and today and feel like I may need a break tomorrow. Definitely want to get out there though before the summer heat rolls in; so keep me in mind for a future ride there. Maybe I can drag @Chief out there with me.

I'd go. Been there a couple times. Nothing too technical just some rock garden areas as I recall.

The last few times I rode out there was able to hit some drops that was kinda fun. Ridden it backwards from marina to parking just for lolz a couple of times. Definitely more fun as a group...but most all rides are anyway.

Yeah, that is pretty much it. The issue I always have with the rock gardens is that I ride it so infrequently that I forget the lines. The second lap is always better than the first because there aren't as many dabs along the way.

We ended going to visit SATN instead. Wasn't willing to roll the dice for the drive time.

ABSOLUTELY want to do this as a group in the near future.

Madrone is the closest trail to my house although I don't ride there that often because I know more trails and more people in Austin. It would be nice to get a group ride out there, especially a recurring weekday evening ride.
