    If youre asking... DN has some sections with dead tree eye pokers that I havent gotten to.

    Oh certainly, but I was asking about places that need weed eating.

    But yes, there are numerous places that need the eye pokers snapped back. It's almost a phenomena how the trail corridors have shrunk. I've seen it happen before but never so widespread and so suddenly.

    I managed to get over there, clear back a bunch and clean up after someone else's hack job. Some people apparently like to trade eye pokers for impellers.

    Bauerly, just east of lynnbrook by the creek, could use some attention. If your asking.

    Some folks wanted to do something charitable in the name of the South Austin mountain biking community. The school year is about to start so it was decided to donate to the kids that can't afford all the school supplies that they need. Particularly at Peredes Middle School, and Casey Elementary. Two schools located in the SATN!

    This Tuesday's (8/15) Crank and Drank will have a benefit nature to it. A boot will be passed prior to wheels down at 6 pm. Post ride will also feature the boot. There will be meat on the barbie, so get something to eat, and drop something in the boot. The money raised will be split between the two schools.
    So bring a little cash if you want to help out. But come regardless. See you there behind ATX Bikes!

    And for any of you that have trouble getting a hall pass to come ride, remember, this is more than a ride. This is CHARITY. Not only is it a charity ride, but it's for THE CHILDREN!

    Both the ride and fundraising were smash successes. Due to a late "I'll round it off" donation, we raised exactly $500 for the cause. Very nice.

    This morning I took $250 to both schools to present it to the principals. The Casey folks were very appreciative. At Paredes they took me over to the cafeteria to make the presentation in front of all the teachers that were already there for a meeting. So I was able to tell them how we, the SATN MTB community, wanted to give back. Also how most people know that the teachers throw a lot of their own money towards their students and that we wanted to help. They were all very genuinely grateful for the donation.

    So, all that donated, know that it was a good thing we did.

    I found this today on my ride:

    It was in an area that I have ridden a lot in. But I got off the beaten path today and was rewarded with this sign. It clearly says "Bikes" so that legitimizes that area pretty well I think. The "trail" it is on is not much of a trail.


    But it could be.

    There used to be another just like it - except someone folded the sign almost closed - sitting in a ravine nearby. I _think_ one of those used to be at the entrance to the Baurele Ranch trail on the west side of Manchaca right near the bridge. IIRC, it disappeared around the time those large boulders at the same spot got moved further apart. Not sure where the other one came from or if it's always been there.

    Oh, long time lurker, first time poster so... hello Bikemojo.

    Why the hell didn't we get 1st billing? That list isn't even in alphabetical order! "Bike Riders" comes first. It should read "Biker Riders, Hikers, Joggers (who prefer the name "Runners"), Walkers, Zombies ONLY! We demand a city council meeting to straighten this grammatical nightmare out.
