The week in Dallas mountain biking
This weekend is the three day Woodstock of north Texas mountain biking at the 7th Annual Fall Campout near Glen Rose. You may opt to head further south to Smithville for the 24 hour relay biking race. On Sunday you have the DORBA clinic at Rowlett Creek, here you will get some invaluable tips on racing at the upcoming DORBA XC Series. Try your luck with the weekly cyclocross, a new style of racing that has swept Europe by storm. Friday nights are the weekly social rides at White Rock and River Legacy. REI and RBM have their maintenance clinics. Some of these clinics fill up rapidly, so act quickly.
