Howdy from Dallas/Austin

Hi y'all! I have been lurking for a while, mostly on the touring board.

I am a 30 year old male from Austin, who just recently moved to Dallas (ugggh!) I ride a GT hardtail mountain bike with some 1.25 slicks on it for the road.

I have ridden in a couple of centuries and done some adventure races a while back, but mostly just ride alone on the roads these days. I had a job that didn't allow me much free time and so I didn't do much riding the last couple of years. Now I have a much better job and I'm getting back into riding and I'm shopping around for a touring bike and might plan a few small adventures in the near future.

If anyone has some good spots to ride in Dallas (besides White Rock, that's the only place I've ridden since I moved here) let me know. I usually ride during the weekdays, because I work nights.

Cheers.

welcome! i hope you're surviving the transition: i grew up in Dallas and then went to University in Austin... then was back for a few summers and, man, Dallas was hard to deal with after Austin... (but better than Houston where i also lived)

and, no, in Dallas i pretty much only rode White Rock too...

Plenty of places in dallas to ride. Depends whether ya want road or trail.

Well for road, heck dallas is full of them map yourself a nice route. Also check local shops for road rides and see the routes they hit.

For trails check out dorba.org. Lists all the trails in the dallas area.
