    Where to ride in Austin

    I will be traveling through Austin in early January to watch cross nationals. Looking to get a few recommendations for the best trails that Austin has to offer this time of year. I enjoy both rocks and flow.

    If you ping me with enough time, I can show you the trails. Need to know your technical skill level. Our trails are rocky and technical but a lot of fun. Take a look at my site to see what it is like here.

    Thanks for the response. I looked over your site, which has a lot of info and seemed great to connect people with their level of riding. However, I am an experienced rider (2o years) looking for the best of Austin at any level. I am recently retired and was hoping to see what different areas have to offer. Austin was listed as a top city for retirement. I live in northern NJ where the trails are very rocky, so rocks are familiar to me. However I am open to experience new things. Jan 9 and 10 are looking like the most likely days that I may be able to spend time riding.

    Also, are there any mountain bike trails within riding distance to Zilker Park where cross national are held?

    Bring a full squishy bike and let a semi-retired 50 year old show you what our biking is all about. Make sure you have a big camelback because there are plenty of miles to ride out there. You can ride to the greenbelt from zilker (that is one end of the trail). I'll ride down from my house (about 5 miles north) and meet you at the trailhead.

    You will see rocks. You will see ledges.

    Sounds great! I may take you up on a tour. I'll post back a few days before I get there.
