    Madrone Ride pics

    I keep forgetting that there are some good technical features on the trail, but it flows well and you can do some really fast loops.

    Just seeing that rigid fork on that trail makes my tennis elbow flare up. I'll be hitting that trail soon. It is definitely a fun one.

    Yup, that Tobin is an animal (fully rigid single speed) and that trail is in his backyard.
    My lower back was so sore from riding that trail on a hardtail that I could not get back on my bike for a week.

    Ha, funny you say that. I've only ridden it once when I was in Wimberley at my folks' place, and I had tweaked my back doing something really XTREME like picking up a pair of shoes off the floor a couple weeks before. After that ride I had to float in the pool for a few days....screwed my back up REAL nice. That led to riding my wife's bike for 3 months while I stretched and worked my way back to health. That was also the ride I decided to drop off an old piece of dock along the trail and blow my fork internals down into the lower arm.

    Next time I ride it, I'll be using the core to stay light on the bike and NOT dropping old pieces of boat dock.

    Yeah, Tobin put us all to shame.

    If Tobin's bars were any shorter he could ride with handcuffs on.

    Madrone is so rad. It is a really solid loop. Was just out there yesterday and just felt like I needed to say something. Kudos to the builders out there.

    Not a bad trail at all.

    One of the few my wife prefers to ride here in texas, although that might have something to do with the post ride margaritas at the marina.

    Madrone is great. Also check out Italian Garden Restaurant. It's run by a couple from Italy. The food is great!

    How are the fire damaged areas looking? I was kind of cool riding through the charred areas. And that little plank by the campground gets me every time. When I roll up to it at speed I get skeered.
    Grab life by the timbales.

    I kind of forgot there was a fire out there, so I guess it's looking pretty good.
