    So enough folks seem in agreement that the next group ride is in Austin March 26th-28th.
    We can meet at Zilker Park later Friday afternoon(like 3pm. or so), since most all know where the park is......
    People will trickle in and call the group cell phone for the day and hookup, while the others are riding Zilker. We can ride 4 a while and get food, then split off to hotels or campgrounds or houses for the night. We can meet the next morning somewhere like Bull Ck.(loop 360) then hit City Park or the Mc Call's or UT or something.
    If you wanna stay at my house(25 min. south/west Austin-10 miles west of San Marcos) there is room for 3 more guys to stay indoors and the rest can campout in tents. We can cookout or order pizzas and have a fire if ya want. There's some great riding a few yards from my house and 1/2 mile away is the Blanco River with mammoth boulders and a swimming hole for Saturday evening and Sunday morning.....San Marcos has some ridin' too.

    So.........talk to me.

    In Zilker park, are all of these white areas below rocks?

    That's pretty cool if so, lots of swimming holes too, right?

    If those are rocks, is this a picture of that area?

    From Zilker you can take the trail up the creek and ride for weeks. Remember Austin sits on a fault line as does San Marcos. That means rocks, caves, and streams.

    Double check that smilie, it's not moving his sunglasses at all. :D

    You can use different kinds of tape, I hear people often put two pieces of tape together, line the rim, and then put down rim tape, etc.
