Mountain-biking in Texas…
There’s a fair chance I’ll be doing some work in Houston in the near future, going out for a few weeks at a time. I know Houston is flat and surrounded by swamps, but I believe there are a few trails in various parks around the city.Posted 4 years ago
Is there anywhere near enough for a weekend road-trip? Big Bend Park looks fantastic but is 650 miles away!the wandererMember
I too will be visiting the in-laws in Austin for Christmas! Austin has some great riding – Emma Long for tech, Barton creek for xc, Reimers Ranch is alright and I like Rocky Hill Ranch in Smithville particularly when the saloon is open and you can grab a shiner at the end of the trail. Houston less so. Memorial Park just to ride but not really exciting.

My local trail when I am there is Bull Creek. Not that much to the bit I had a brief play on but some cheeky stuff above the office blocks on 360/ Pioneer Valley and a good stiff climb out on Spicewood Springs. I seem to remember pinging out of one trail into the bottom level of an office car park. 😮Posted 4 years ago

Bloody hell, its almost an exodus to Texas!
Was doing it 4/5 times a year, for a week or so at a go, up to MiniBB No.2 being born last year and am now fighting hard to only be sent when absolutely necessary on red-eye trips. Do miss Shiner in frozen glasses, portions of steak/seafood I could live on for a week and the general feeling of being in a city that is itself a Disney theme park version of what a Texas city should be. Do not miss rush-hour traffic on Beltway 8, I45 or I10…..Posted 4 years ago
