Trials bike at Emma Long City Park

Ryan Albert - above.  Dirt Derby Promoter

It was raining, muggy and an ill fated ride at Emma Long Park yesterday.  A.J. flatted out, Ryan lost his phone and I was shown to be extremely out of shape.  There a was a bit of fun after the ride.  We met several trials bike riders.  They were gracious enough to let us ride their 2 stroke rock crawling beasts.  One of the guys had this cool trials bicycle in the back of his truck.  I'm kicking myself for not getting pics of the other bikes.

If you are in Central Austin and need a great bike shop.  Go to The Peddler!  They are super cool and they even make a Fred (the white socks kind) like me feel comfortable.  The prices on service are great and they are very knowledgeable.   If you have an extra buck throw it in the jar for the beer fund!
