    Barton Creek Greenbelt; its like a highway to some pretty gnar stuff hidden in the area! Also like Walnut Creek for a cardio on my FR hardtail, but if its hot and I'm on my fully...I stick to BCGB.

    Tons! LOL. Even our governor just broke his collar bone out at Barton Creek Greenbelt! Everyone rides Austin cause it rocks!

    Dean, Walnut Creek is a public park with tons of trails and is open year round; just refrain from riding on really wet days to keep erosion to a minimal.

    That's awesome.....well, not that the gov broke his collar bone but that he is a cyclist as well. Does he just road cycle or Mountain, BMX? How did he break his collar bone, did he take a fall?
     
  8. Little known fact about TX governors and bikes: The governor before Perry was into bike riding before he took up running. He quit biking b/c he just couldn't do it without the training wheels.

    Bush got hurt real bad too IIRC during his second term. Couldn't keep up with Lance I guess.

    "He quit biking b/c he just couldn't do it without the training wheels"........was that Bush?
     
  11. I think. It depends... Do you have a job where your job title begins "Secret Service Agent..."?

    He was mountain biking. I think he does mountain and road; but yeah he fell, but no one knows where exactly it was at. It was on the Barton Creek Greenbelt somewhere.

    Ride long enough, or fast enough, or in rough enough terrain, sooner or later almost everyone is going to go down for one reason or another.
