Learning to Jump?

Just got another dirt bike after 23 years and having a blast! Taking a break from Land Speed Racing and really enjoying it. I'm in La Porte (Southeast of Houston), where's a uncrowded track where I won't be in the way?
Thanks

tracks

what kind of riding are you lookin to do? if you are talking about motocross then I would recomend Ultimate in Alvin in Angleton MX on hwy2004. we ride at either one of these just about every weekend. Neither is overly technical and prep is usually great.

Yeah, something not too technical, not looking to do anything crazy, just have some fun and learn.
Thanks

Ultimate MX in Alvin, nice track and plenty of moderate table tops to get you up to speed.

Thats what I was gonna say!

Ultimate is praly a bit less technical, and the owner Glen is perdy cool. I'm just a tad faster than molases, and nobody runs me over at either place.

How technical is it? Is a neck brace required at any of the Houston area tracks?

I've never heard of neck braces being required at any tracks in texas i've been to.

Highlands is maybe a moderately technical track. Still fun for beginner track riders though.
