    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.

    Hiya Chuy, and welcome to the forums
    No matter how fast I'm going, I'm in no hurry.
    there are no bicycles in the valley, the only bicycle you find in the valley is the bicycle you ride down there.
    Ride in the front, this space is available to anyone that wishes to take it-jjmolyet

    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...
    why drive when you can ride?
