    Without a hole, there is no means to fill the tube with air. It's clearly what I meant. Mine.

    Not sure if it's because I haven't ridden in a week or that it's a bit greasy out but I just rode the ewok bypass and it may have wound up more difficult then the bridge line. Good chunk of tech rock crawling that matches the rest of the trail nicely. North entrance may need some work though.

    Speaking of greasy, the trails. Not unrideable but I wouldn't go out there if you don't have to.

    I also found a pair of sunglasses on ewok. Given their style I would guess that may belong to Lucy or Helen, which will make for an interesting interaction if they want them back, but if you think they are yours let me know.

    Bwaa ha ha! I certainly hope so. Hold them for ransom. "Stay away from our stuff or the glasses are goners" Then send them an ear(piece) in a box to show them you mean business!

    When I walked it I was thinking, "this is going to be challenging, but doable." Yup, I'm sure the slippery factor added even more challenge to your ride.

    I rode this afternoon between Sunset Valley and Circle C and it was mostly great. The rocks have dried. A few small mud patches but nothing you can't ride around. The rest of the week should be hero dirt.

    Hey Tip... Went out yesterday afternoon and saw that some white marlstone looking gravel has been laid down on the Monterey Oaks trail section (by the school). Also got kind of turned around coming back north from Davids to Convict, by the library... But thanks to whoever cut some new trail to get around the VC work.

    And a Happy New Year when it comes.

    The trail between Monterrey Oaks and Brush Country? That would be great. That trail stays so muddy for so long. I use that route when I am headed towards the bike bridge over Barton Creek.

    Yes... Not the whole trail, just the sections that stay wet and muddy. I was just wondering who would have done it?

    I'm pretty sure the city put all that rock through there. Not sure if I'm stating the obvs here, but that path is used for kids going to Small MS and when it's muddy, it's a mess back there. So I'm pretty sure the city did it under pressure from the residents because their kids would come home a mess and arrive at school a mess.

    I personally hate it, but THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

    Why? I haven't ridden on it yet. Is it deep and loose? Maybe it'll get scattered some and hopefully packed in.

    It's just kind of a bright white mass that looks out of place at the moment, but hopefully, as Tip said, it will get a bit scattered, pushed into the dirt and sort of blend in after some use. There is a section where it blocks a natural water runoff that looks like it will cause water to back up. Not sure what effect that might have. I was just wondering who did it in relation to what might be done to other trails in the area.

    On another note, there is plenty of space in that little park section to route more trail... Might be a possible small project local mtbers can work on this year. Just a thought.

    The gravel was spread in November by community volunteers from the Westcreek neighborhood in cooperation with the city's Neighborhood Partnering Program.

    There is more planned improvements for that park, including (I believe) a small pedestrian bridge over the tributary near Brush Country.

    I don't think you can reasonably add more trails to that tiny park. There are already two parallel trails. Plenty of good riding along Williamson Creek less than a mile away.

    Yea. that's basically it. I ride that path every time I ride (4-5 times/week) and it was just annoying. Better now that it's settling in, but it was super loose for quite a while.

    I get why they need it though, after it rains it gets pretty muddy through there...

    Just rode Ewok and one of the bridges was out of place. Didn't look like the person who moved it was trying to hard so it may have just been some well meaning individual trying to get people to use the Endor Detour.

    Speaking of which, when dry it is rideable both ways. It is not easy though. If you struggle with the rest of Vasectomy then Endor will likely pose a challenge.

    I did bash my ring on the camel hump coming south bound. Is this a problem for anybody else?

    Hey Southie riders! I seem to have lost a smallish silver crank Brothers container holding my tubeless plug kit, patch kit, and small bolts. Mad karma points to anyone who might have found it and can return it to me.

    Found a tail light near slaughter creek and mopac. It is not high end but looks brand new.

    Let me know if you are missing one and describe the brand shape, or whatever.

    You are psobably missing the bolt used to fasten it as well even if you get the light back. I could possibly help you out with that bolt form my toolbox.

    No doubt I found your case on Deception on Oct 21st. Posted it in the Brushy thread. Funny I live in South Austin and never in this thread always in Brushy. PM for delivery.
