What we're about

Meet other local mountain bikers to organize rides, review trails, gear and trade tips. All skill-levels welcome. We'll try to organize rides that fit all experience levels. Mt biking is a great way to be a kid again so "Get on your bike and ride!"

I've organized this site to be available to the Central Texas Mountain Bikers community as a resource for gathering and for sharing the passion of offroad riding. This site is for riders, shops and organizations to post rides and events to support this community.

If you're interested in hosting rides or events, please contact me.

Thanks,

Ken

What level rider are you?
Level 1: I am new to mountain biking and have only ridden on dirt a few times or not at all. I am excited to be introduced to the sport! Skills practiced… Shifting, braking and body position on the bike.

Level 2: I can handle riding on smooth trails but hesitate or walk my bike when there are small rocks, logs, roots, or when it gets steep. Skills practiced…shifting, braking and body position on climbs, descents and over features (aka rocks and roots).

Level 3: I am comfortable riding varying and somewhat technical, single-track terrain. I will ride over small rocks, roots, and logs (think curb size features) but don’t always know what I did to get through. Skills practiced… all of the above, small wheel lifts, small drops and control of the bike climbing and descending.

Level 4: I am comfortable riding varying and technical, single-track terrain. I will ride, or attempt to, over medium to large rocks, roots, and logs and down medium to large drops (think 1 foot and up sized features or several in a row). Skills practiced… body positioning, up and down rocks/ledges, wheel lifts (front and rear) , fast cornering, switchbacks, endurance.

Level 5/Advanced: Please consider joining us as a ride leader and/or sweep. We are always looking for new enthusiastic ladies to share our our love of all things bikes! Or, just come out to ride and hang with us and smile!

Why are the above rider levels important? We want everyone to have the best ride possible. If you are holding up your group, consider dropping down a level to work on necessary skills and fitness. If you are being held up by your group, move up a level and challenge yourself! If you are unsure of where to be, please talk to a ride leader!
