    Hope Dutch MTB guy in Houston

    Hi there,


    I'm from the Netherlands (Apeldoorn) and I'm in Houston for a couple of days.
    Sunday I've got a day off and I planned to make a mountain bike ride. Just for the experience.


    But I've no idea where to start:
    - What are nice spots to ride ?
    - Are there MTB associations doing Sunday rides?
    - Are there people want to take me out for a ride?
    - How to get a MTB (HT) ? Rental?
    - Are there things to watch out for ?


    Any suggestions are welcome.


    Thank you in advance.

    Google "west end bicycles" you'll get all your answers there.

    rent from west end. if I am available Sunday, we could check out memorial or ant hills, which I think are the two best rides within twenty minutes of downtown

    West End is open 12-4 on Sundays and located on Blossom St., about 5-10 min ride to Memorial Park. If you're renting, ask for Louis (rental manager). Mountain bike rentals are $35-75/day, depending on how fancy you go.
