    What's dry enough to ride in/near Austin today?
    It doesn't look like NW of Austin (RPR, etc) got much rain if any. What about other places? Anything in town dry enough to ride?

    I live at the Spyglass entrance to the BCGB, it rained quite a bit last night. I'd say its a no-go.

    Man I miss living there. I lived on that street across from Taco Deli for a few years.


    It poured in SW Austin too, so I would have to assume Slaughter Creek is closed.

    i was up til midnight and while it rained some, it didnt pour by any means. it may have poured after i went to bed though. I live in north Austin, about 2 miles from Walnut. Its possible Walnut may be ok, but dont be mad if you get there and its all wet

    EDIT - according to weather underground, we got 0.04 inches of rain yesterday, and 0.13 so far today. I would guess Walnut would be ok (mostly dry with some muddy spots) later this afternoon....

    Thanks for the responses everyone. I have a feeling this may be a weekly post, lol! All of the trails in Houston are wet again so I'm trying to convince the girlfriend we need to make another road trip. We ended up making the trip to Reveille Peak Ranch last weekend and loved it. It was sort of like BCGB and RHR combined...rocks and hills!

    How are things looking this weekend? Where are the locals headed tomorrow?

    Looks like tomorrow may work for some places. I am going diving at the lake though... 40 degree air, 50 degree water...good times ;)

    I hope the rain that I see in the forecast for Sunday afternoon actually holds out long enough for an early ride.

    Bikemojo is another good resource to check for trail conditions. From what I'm reading there, it looks like Reveille Peak or Pace Bend are safe bets. City Park also tends to dry quickly, however, that place is a different animal compared to RPR or PB. Super technical and lots of ledges.

    BCGB had puddles before the rain Thursday night, so I doubt it will be OK. Walnut Creek is probably too wet as well.

    CP will always be good. I would guess pace bend and RPR would be good tomorrow. GB should be fine by sunday.

    Pace Bend is in great shape for tomorrow according to the trail steward. Be out there at 9 tomorrow morn.

    is the city motorcross place good to ride at? it rained a bunch in san antonio and me an a few other people want to head up to austin and ride.

    any other places around austin good for very aggressive riding? as close to downhill as possible in texas anyway :)

    City Park generally drains well after rain. It stopped raining early Friday morning and was sunny and windy most of the day. Should be OK, however, I haven't been out there to confirm/deny. Just going on what I know about the trail.

    If you have never been out there, it will definitely satisfy your itch for aggressive, technical riding.

    Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnett has a dedicated Super D course that is pretty impressive. They also have a pump track, if you're into that sort of thing. Overall it is second only to City Park in terms of technical challenge.

    RPR was perfect on Saturday. They really have some great views there!
