    Welcome to Texas.

    There's a quite a few actually. Your first stop should be dorba.org. Everything you need to know is there.

    Close to where you'll be is Northshore, a local favorite for singlespeeders. However, there's more than a dozen trail systems in the Dallas area and most of them within a 35 - 40 minute drive for you. Big Cedar, Oak Cliff Nature Preserve, Boulder, and Rowlett Creek Preserve are amongst the most popular.

    Your in for a treat. I moved to San Antonio from Chicago two years ago, my riding has improved tremendously. Being able to ride year round and not having to contend with too much rain really helps get the miles in. Can't really speak much about the trails that you will have around your new home but for the trails I ride there is definitely a greater challenge then is available around the Chicagoland area. I used to regularly ride Palos, Kettle Morraine and occasionally Brown County, nearly everything in Texas that I have ridden is better and/or harder.

    Jake had it right and you can also check out MountainBikeTx.com for the Dallas area and the entire State of Texas.
