I think my wife has to work both Saturday & Sunday morning...I might be down for a short ride around Livingston. I'll have to see how it plays out. I don't drink coffee though. Yuck!

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

I'm in Kingwood and have been using Rever to put together a few rides I've been doing, usually on Sat, Sun, Mon and/or Tuesdays. Up to Cleveland, then nw to Coldspring, then Willis and back to KW - 100 miles or so. Lots of options to take different roads, stop for breakfast, etc.

I mostly take it easy...my days of hauling *** and scraping the footpegs around corners were fun but I'm (mostly) done with that now.

Cool. I've made similar loops.

Let's see, next few weeks are kinda nuts for me, but could do Monday Oct 30 or Tues Oct 31.

Might be able to squeeze in a short ride Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning this weekend. Just have to be back in time for soccer at noon.

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

I'm going riding Monday (the 16th) morn - the weather should be cool. I'll be at the BreWingZ parking lot on Northpark and Rt 494 at 8:30 if anyone wants to join me for about a leisurely 100 mile ride.

Blue Flash is back!

OK... Thanksgiving coming this week, so I can't get out this weekend. The bike has been gathering dust since August...

However... I just finished my last work for my Graduate Certificate in GIS...

No more school.. and it's time to ride! Plan on a route coming out early next week...

Note sure if I'm thinking 3 hrs, 4, or what... but I'll be riding!

How about that ride??? Saturday, December 2

Update on times (and repeat of the date):

December 2 (Saturday)

For any that want to meet in Atascocita:
Meet at Dunkin Donuts in Atascocita (on West Lake Houston Pkwy, just north of Will Clayton), at 0800
KSU at 0830 from Dunkin

For those that would like to meet at Flying J:
Meet at the Flying J, Hwy 242 and 59/69, at 0900.
KSU at 0930

About 185 miles and about 4 hours from Flying J to Flying J, one of my favorite "Around the Lake" routes. Should be a stop in Onalaska for fuel and fish stories.

We should be back to Flying J at about 1:30, and back to Atascocita by 2:30.

With Christmas coming and all that... December may be slim for rides for me, but I'll be trying to keep these going. Looking forward to getting back out on the road with you!

Dec 2 Ride short summary

Big Bird and I met up at Dunkin in Atascocita, but my new rider from work didn't make it... didn't hear from him. Hoping all is well, but I didn't get his contact info, so I couldn't check on him... bummer! Hope he can make the next ride!

We got out of Dunkin a bit late, but got to Flying J pretty close to schedule. Met up with LeloTX and TJ29607 there.

It was a bit cool for mesh, but my rain shell made it perfect!.. Saw a LEO or 2, but we weren't playing hoodlums today, so that's good.

Fall foliage colors usually aren't very impressive around here, but it surprised me that we saw as much color as we did... some nice yellows, reds, browns, greens... Certainly a nice day to be out.

We had one deer that had me concerned for a moment, but I saw it in plenty of time and it jumped the guard rail and disappeared in the woods. No problem! Came up on a buzzard feasting on a treasure in the road that didn't want to fly off quickly, and a Kamakazi squirrel that darted in front of me along the way.

No panics, no real close calls... no bike issues... just perfect weather, good roads, some good scenery, and all with some really great riding buddies.

After 3 months of racing around trying to keep up with the new contract job and finishing my last grad school classes, I had forgotten how much of an escape the rides have been... I had an awesome day, and it was great to get back with some of the best riding partners in Texas.

Thanks for coming out, guys! It was great!

Christmas is coming, and that makes it hard to get out, but I'm looking forward to the next ride! I think the schedule says I'm good for next weekend, so unless I'm wrong, I'll have a ride set up for next weekend... but that may be it for the rest of the year for me.

So... where do we want to go next weekend?????????????
