Tina and I got together with John and A.J. for one of my favorite types of rides - a half city/half off road adventure like I used to do in MPLS going to the river trails or Lebanon and stuff with all the city terrain to pop off of on the way. John showed us the Green Belt and it ruled hard. A perfect mixture of loamy, tacky trail and an earthquakey lunar laser vision twitchfest.
The tongue acts like a rudder
I should have gotten more pics of the rock gardens but I was having too much fun. Afterwards Tina lamented the fact that it's probably unlikely that we'll have many opportunities to ride off road with a group of folks all on brakeless fixed 29r's - not to mention as part of the largest gathering of Bruiser prototypes ever assembled, but it was far too enjoyable to dwell on.
Afterwards, gourmet sausages were installed, and a food truck island was visited. Threw in a visit to Fast Folks too.
Rounded out the night with a marshmallow roast and a fire at John's.
Super super solid time as per usual when we're in Austin.
