yea, up 71 & 77 are some great places to ride. I need to make another biking/camping trip at one of my several places up that way.

I don't see how people can dog on the Houston trails...you are just not pedalling hard enough, or finding the right trails.

Jack Brooks (near the intersection of FM2004 and Hwy6) has some great trails! It is very technical in parts, lots of steep up/down hills and there are some really cool teeter-totters, jumps and other cool stuff (like banana spiders if you are the first guy down the trail that day). Only down side is that its unrideable for a while anytime after a little rain...

Ant Hills is also a cool place to go, it is a much faster trial than Jack Brooks!

Memorial has some nice new trails cut, too, if you have not been there in a while...

Anyone down for a group ride?????

of course I am.
but Ant Hills will be out for awhile due to rain.
Memorial drains nicely, should be doable in a few days. I'd be able to go if it's done on a weekend, due to it getting dark as I'm getting off work around 5.

I was used to more technical trails before coming to Houston. I'm sorry but Memorial and Huntsville State Park are not technical trails (not mentioning all the joggers and hikers on the trails), and the Ant Hills can only be ridden half the year because any time it rains it's a swamp. "...not pedaling hard enough..." has nothing to do with it. I don't know where all you've been mountain biking, but hopefully more than just the Houston area trails.

...all over Texas and between here and California. Each trail offers it's own character that other trails don't have. Let me join you for a ride, and if you make it out towards Warda, Smithville, Austin, Ant Hills, and wherever. I do it for the love. And when I begin to feel memorial is getting too easy, I set myself to get through it faster, or do more loops. I am in no way a fast rider and never would say I have "legs" or "lungs", but I love to ride. I love the fact that I can throw my bike in the car, not leave the city, and be able to do 20+ miles on trails. Plus, I can't get through the whole park without having to put my foot down, because there are plenty of rooty sections.

Where are you used to riding?

And BTW, welcome to Houston.

Memorial is technical you just have to find the technical trails. That's because most of them have a no bikes beyond this point sign which from what I was told is due to an injured rider at one point or another. I haven't riden since April so I know I am in no shape for them right know but if I get my bike soon I wouldn't mind showing you the entry points to some.

If you looking for some new trails check out Bluff Creek Ranch. I hit them up this past weekend and had a blast. It's a little past La Grange but it was worth the ride out there...great trails.

Hey Yankee, I haven't ridden in years, but the next time you head out that way hit me up. I am moving to LG next week and wouldn't mind having an excuse to get back into it.
