View Full Version : My God! What a hill!!!
That one in the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Just when I thought it was finally over, the path turned and it kept going and going and going, then it turned again. I guess you Austin people already knew about it, and so do I, now. Coming down was a little better, fatigue was replaced by fear. I was even thankful when my chain got caught between the cassette and spokes, so I could stop and cool my rims.
Anyway, that is a pretty good trail. Good scenery. And the trees and stuff are nice too.

so you've experience the Hill of Life, eh?
there are a lot of (secret) trails off of it as well, much sketchy off-camber and big drops....fun!!!

The greenbelt is great place to start. But may I suggest Walnut Creek or for a technical ride Emma Long(trail of life).

Going down is much more fun than going up! Ride on...

if you think the gbelt is a good place to "start" and that Emma is more technical, you need to ride more out at the Gbelt..
I can take you to some technical stuff :)
