    For good gravel day rides I like the areas east of I35 from Temple to Hillsboro. Lampasas north to Stephenville good too. North of Gatesville good. Anything west of Austin around Llano great.

    Agree with bigdave & Mudclod....lots of great riding ...& not too far from Austin.

    I'd also add.....jus because a goatpath has gotten a topping of pavement....that doesnt lessen the fun factor. The county road still traverses the same landscape as before paving.... Same scenery as before (albeit..possibly with more houses in some areas) same cattle guards n low water crossings (including the infamous slick slabs of Springtime)

    Get yourself a Roads of Texas Atlas or a Benchmark Texas Road & Recreation Atlas
    Invaluable road info in these. A Butler Texas Hill Country map is a good source too.

    I'm lucky....living in the Waco area....to have my pick of county roads to ride. North South East or West....& they're all .... Jus down the road

    Go over to Two Wheeled Texans and download the tracks for the Lone Star Loop. One of the guys created a great mainly dirt track that runs from south of SA, north of Wichita Falls, Longview to Abilene. Mostly dirt. He did a lot of work and a great job on it!! Havent had a chance to do it all yet but here's a couple pics from out west of San Saba yesterday. Blue Bonnets are already starting to fade so nows the time to go.

    The lucky barrel is a good way to put it. I thoroughly enjoy living on the Northern rim of the cask.

    What bike are you on these days? I see a few around here.

    There was a white Tiger (800 I think) running around last week.
