    Barton Creek Greenbelt tour?

    I was in Austin today for business and decided to hit up greenbelt based upon recommendations on a previous post. Did like it but i'll be back the nxt 3 weekends and def wanna see if I can get the official tour since I feel like I missed out on a lot.

    check out mountainbiketx.com for plenty of great info about the green belt and for possible future group rides. also, you can pm Pedigre here on MTBR. i think he's the president of MtbTX

    I'm riding it Wednesday morning I believe. Riding in San Antonio tomorrow. I'll just be winging it as well.

    Another great resource is Austinbike.com (also Austinbike on MTBR) he often leads GB tours on the weekends, provided he's state side and hasn't broken his silly Canadian bike (sorry John, couldn't resist)

    Bike is fixed, and I am in the country until October.

    And if you want to talk about breaking things on the greenbelt, I could post that picture of you.

    I think you broke your pride....

    Not to mention a few ribs!

    Glad you're in town for a while. My "project" should be together in the next two weeks or so... I'd like to see how it does up there

    I don't see how some of y'all make it in a few of those really rocky sections! There were several small things I don't see how anyone could climb. Had a blast out there though. . . . may be back the beginning of next week as well.

    possibly. think we might hit something else next weekend that you probably haven't ridden.

    Are they putting water out again?

    There was water out there the last time I rode (6ish weeks ago?). It was hot... very hot, but the tree cover was nice, and the trails were fast. I was in miserable shape (19 months of little to no riding) same as the last greenbelt ride w/you. I've gotten stronger, and added gears. Let me know about the other option offline if you like, I'll be back to weekend dad duty very soon, so I'll have to plan around that
