The Top Ten Highlights of 2012

In our second full year of operation, Reveille Peak Ranch welcomed thousands of mountain bikers, adventure racers, trail runners, SCUBA divers, campers, nature lovers, training group members, BBQ lovers, music fans, event spectators and more.

Here are our top ten highlights of 2012:

  1. RPR was featured in the Austin American-Statesman, in The Daytripper’s column in Texas Highways, CultureMap Austin, KENS-TV, and YNN Austin.
  2. Race partners and promoters Spartan Race, Terra Firma Racing, Rogue Running, Tejas Trails, 5K Foam Fest, Texas High School Mountain Bike League, Camp Gladiator, UltiFit, XTERRA, and more help us make our second year incredible!
  3. The Subaru Trek Mountain Bike team rode at RPR; team member Heather Irmiger called RPR a “dream come true” (and loves our showers); see her blog post here.
  4. New SCUBA programs in our Quarry Lake provided a one-of-a-kind diving experience in a former graphite quarry. Read a review from Oceanic Adventures
  5.  We launched Serve Who Serve, a nonprofit committed to serving our military men and women, and our youth, and welcomed Candyss Bryant as executive director.

    Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!
