Reveille Peak Ranch, Texas' Moab!

Awesome, awesome and awesome. Imagine if the South Austin Greenbelt and the moon had a baby - then imagine riding your bicycle on that baby.

Granite, boulders, nice single-track. Pretty technical trail, a few quick windy bits in the woods but overall a slower technical ride with some awesome vistas and absolutely unique terrain. I'll be going back for sure.

Slaughter Creek Trail - South Austin

Took this video with my key-chain camera. It's not perfect, but it'll do to catch the guy in front of you pulling an endo. Check the camera out here - total cost was $20.00.

Slaughter Creek Trail is 5.6 miles long, very easy with a few little rocky sections. I did see one guy endo, so it's not all parking lot. Also, there is a veritable shit-ton of deer. I almost get T-Boned by one in this video.

Free Iphone Bike App

Looks like they jack the price up to something retarded and then make it free so you'll feel like you're getting a rocking deal, but whatevs - I can't have enough apps on my phone and I still can't get everytrail pro figured out. I mean, WhereTF is the "new" button for fuks sake?
