The book includes A list of the best-known mountain biking trails, a calendar of top cycling events, a complete of shops and custom bike builders, as well as a directory of cycling clubs. All contained in a book that will easily slip into a bike jersey pocket. The most complete and up-to-date Texas biking guide available in print.
