    There's plenty around Austin.
    Ema Long Park
    Walnut Creek
    Barton Creek Green Belt
    just to name a few. When I lived near there I liked Walnut Creek the best with Barton Creek second. Ema Long (at the time anyway, not sure about now) allowed dirt bikes on the trail too so it got kinda ugly sometimes.

    Quite helpful!

    I'll be staying somewhere downtown, hopefully I'll get my hotel booked tomorrow. If anyone knows any that are definitely bike friendly that'd be great!

    i've heard city park motocross is pretty intense. You can never go wrong with the green belt, but it is a hiking area as well, so you're expected to share the trail as it's not bikes only.

    I see one on my way to cedar park up north (about 25 min from downtown), i believe it's called the brushy lake park, and it looks nice.

    You can ride from your Hotel door and hit the greenbelt in 10 minutes.

    BCGB is the trail to ride to get the best of Austin, you'll need a guide though to have a good loop.

    Hotel San Jose is located on South Congress Avenue sponsors a road biking team and is close to a lot of interesting things to do.

    I work just south of downtown. At 5:10 I could be at the Hyatt. Can show you around. Just call (voice) the number I gave.

    Sweet. I'm still driving so I probably won't make a ride until closer to dark today.

    Sounds good. What is your schedule each day? I can arrange to get out of work earlier if need be, but 5 pm is my normal end of day. Give me a call earlier in the day so I can make necessary arrangements to leave early if needed.

    Also, if you have lights and want to ride past dark, let me know and I will charge/bring mine,

    btw, I don't get on forums during the workday, so if you need to contact me, the only way is my mobile (voice NOT text) 5one2four5oh1one3nine.

    I will probably ride my ss to work tomorrow as my fixed gear has slicks on it for street commuting. I am charging my light just in case the ride run out of daylight.

    Pub Crawl

    Also, some friends do a regular Wednesday Pub Crawl and will be meeting at Opal Devine's on 6th Street at 7 pm. We could probably meet them after riding trails at any time along the pub crawl. I can call them when we are done to see where they are.

    Might be obvious, but just to be clear, it's a bicycle pub crawl. Usually every other Wednesday, called the Wednesday Assault Ride (WAR)
