Hello from Dallas!

I have been riding again for about 9 months. I used to ride a lot as a teenager, but then came college, beer etc... So now I am closing in on 30 and bought a Trek 1000 last year. I have been riding and trying to get back into shape and am really having a blast, moreso than when I was 16.

Dallas area guy here also, Frisco to be exact! I am somewhat of a MTB'er who has fallen in love with road riding. Ordered the Trek 2100 on sunday afternoon after test riding several others. Can't wait for it to come in as I start my week and a half vacation on Friday. Off til the 3rd of June. Look to get in lots of riding in.

Where all have you been riding around DFW. I have worn out the 635 to white rock and around trail.

Ever been out to Fort Worth on the Trinity trail. Or I hear there is a good bike path in Arlington and at
Possum Kingdom Lake but that is a little far. It is just hard to ride on the street in my area. Lots of crazy drivers that do double the speed limit. Myself included, unless I see a Cyclist of coarse!!! LOL

I currently live close to White Rock and have also worn out White Rock trail and around the lake. I am in the process of moving to SE Plano and will have to find a regular route. I have heard that there are some good places to ride out around Lake Lavon.
