Austin, Texas?

Recommended Posts

I know there are a lot of Texas riders here.

Anyone live in or near Austin? What's the city like? Any good riding near by?

Any idea how far that is from Austin? I saw directions, but distance wasn't mentioned.

Thanks for the info.

Cross Creek MX ( night sx track) about a 30-40 min drive from Austin

Del Valley Mx ( Lighted MX) 15-30 min ( its near the Airport if that helps)

Texas Ski Ranch ( lighted mx practice) 45 min - 1 hr Depending on Traffic...

Cycle Ranch ( soon to be lighted)- 1.5-2hrs

Lake Whitney 2.5 hrs -3hrs...

Liberty Hill ( closed)

thse times will change a little by your location in Austin... & its wonderful traffic

I live out between Austin & Bastrop & for me its..

Cross CreeK 25 min

Del Valle Mx - 15 min

SKi Ranch 1hr

CycleRanch 1hr 40-45min.. used to take less but after a 94 in a 65 ticket had to slow down.. :)

Lake Whitney would prob take me 3hrs... have not been there since 2001...

Thanks for the replies!

There is a chance I could be relocating there eventually. Right now I'm just trying to get an idea what housing costs are and what jobs are paying.

One thing that I've really thought about is that I won't know anyone there. I'm hoping that someone on TT might want to show me around or go riding?

We have a big group of riding buddies from the austin/ san antonio area... You may even get to meet the gimp err I mean the Rapture if Davbrucas takes him out of his cellar.. :)

As far as employment or housing ... kinda depends... If you want to live near lake or some old parts of historic austin.. open up the checkbook...

jobs ?? what field?

I am a Maint. Tech. / Operations Specialist for a major world-wide high tech company. I know I'm going to take a major pay cut moving to Texas. But that's ok, housing costs are reasonable. I couldn't buy a shack for $200,000 here in California (I live in Sonoma County, right next to the Napa Valley if you've ever heard of that). I bet I could buy a decent house in Texas for $200,000.

I see that IBM and Motorolla are in Austin. Maybe I should start there?

Dell, Amd, etc... also... Lots of high tech here...

shoot for $200K you can get a super nice house... example : We are putting our 4yr old custom built home ( in wall home theater, tile, 4bd room, 2500 sq ft, 2 - 2 car garages, 1 acre lot, arched walkways, trey ceiling etc...) on the market for a tad under 200K.... Wife wants a 2 story now.. I dont care as long as my garage space stays same or more :)

but depending on your needs... $150K -250K will put you in a nice house in a nice neighborhood...
