    Trail guide needed - Denton
    I will be in the Denton area for a couple of days the weekend of 3/24 - 3/27 and I was hoping to rent a mtn bike and hit a trail for a couple of hours. Would anyone be willing to show me around the best/hardest trail in the area? I'd also like to know if any of the shops in the area rent decent bikes for me to trash on.

    I just spent 6 months working in Dallas and would recommend you hit Bar H in St Jo. It's not far from Denton and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. They have a link from the Dorba website so you can check it out before going. If you just have to hit Dallas, go to Northshore at Grapevine Lake. It's good, but not on the same level as Bar H.

    I can show you around. There are plenty of trails that are hard within a couple of hours. It all depends on what you're looking for.

    I hope I can take you up on that offer. It will depend on timing and my ability to rent a decent bike.

    I think RBM and Mad Duck are the only ones that rent bikes.

    Richardson Bike Mart is in Richardson at the corner of Coit and Campbell. Mad Duck is in Grapevine and a whole lot closer to Denton. From 35E take 121 west to Texas Trail. This is after the 114 interchange. Turn right. Take a left on Highway 26 and the Duck will be on the right. Their web address is madduckadventuresports.com

    Gary at Mad Duck is a great dude. I am certain that he can set you up.

    Just don't rent/borrow the Yeti ASR. There is a very good chance you will end up buying one (or just lusting after one every day)

    It looks like early Monday will be my best chance to ride but I may not have a vehicle at my disposal. A road ride may be in my future instead. :mad:
