    Going to Dallas from mid june to early july, riding?

    I'm going on business and staying at Dallas for four weeks. I'm going to be near Southlake, but I'm renting a car.

    How's the scene over there? I would be planning on renting a bike, but which stores should I check out? I have been to bicicles, inc about 4 years ago (I bought a Stumpy back then, I was happy with the service). They seem to still rent bikes, are they good, should I check other shops?

    www.dorba.org

    Has a pretty complete list of trails in this area... don't ask me about people, I don't know any of them.

    Welcome to Dallas!

    Check out Bikes, Inc. again, as well as Richardson Bike Mart, and I would also check out Mad Duck. Good shop. Dorba.com is the way to go. You should be in a good area to get to some good riding.

    I dont know where you're coming from, but bring some damn cool weather. Rain, too.

    Be ready for the heat!!!!

    Hit the Northshore trail. One of the most popular trails we have. When you get here post on DORBA.org that you are looking for someone to ride with and you should get multiple replies with offers.

    Big Cedar is the best trail locally imo, Northshore is prob #2 and will be nearer to you.

    Agreed.

    I don't know if they rent, but Knobbies and Slicks is a great shop that is very close to you.

    Get on the DORBA website and you can probably find someone that will meet you for a ride and let you ride a bike of theirs.
