Lunchtime ride reportTig
Nov 6, 2002 11:54 AM
When the temperature is in the 60's and the sky is blue you just have to ride, even if for only an hour. Here's the entrance to a short MUT in the suburban town of Nassau Bay with a nice view.

Just when you think its safe, a water crossing appears. I don't think I'll try it again on a fixte!

A scenic drive with a view of Clear Lake. Watch out for the giant manhole cover! Back before he faced bankruptcy, Willie Nelson had a house about 100 yards to the right of this picture.

A shot of the budget fixte conversion with a lighthouse in the background. An old 27" front wheel with a Record hub works great and provides a magic carpet smooth ride.

NASA's Johnson Space Center with the old Saturn V rocket displayed in the background.
Obligatory Texas longhorn shotTig

Also located on the NASA grounds are these longhorn cattle that are tended by the local FFA chapter. Sometimes the best sights are in your own back yard.

besides the pretty Texas women.

Here's a nice shot I got off of Barton Creek in Austin. Check out these links for MTB ride reports over at MTBR. . .

Austin is a great place to rideTig

It can vary quite a bit there. The guys who were from Colorado never made it to the hillier trails (can't remember the names) that I raced on a bunch of years ago. There were some lung-busting climbs and wicked, twisty descents! I remember the best part of MTB racing was how it exposed you to so many different and beautiful trails across the state.

I'll bring my road bike to Austin during Thanksgiving when we visit my sis. She lives on the west side off of Bee Caves Road, which is where Lance and company like to train in the hills during the off season.
