Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

Thanks again for leading the ride Blue Flash - very enjoyable, especially the 2nd half. The rest of my weekends are already accounted for so I was glad to be able to get this ride in before the year ends.

See you guys in 2018!

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

Hmmm... looks a bit chilly this weekend. I've got a lot to do, and it looks like it would be in the mid 30s Saturday morning...

anybody out there hard set on a ride in the chilly weather?

Oops... looks like the wife's birthday this weekend... that may knock me out for a ride! Sounds like we'll have to hit the new year running!

Sounds like it. I had to miss the last one and I can’t make this weekend. Hopefully we’ll be able to put something together soon.

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

OK, so January hasn't been good for me... ice doesn't help.

I'm Grandpa next weekend, but after that, we should be getting some consistent rides going. The temps should start coming up... days longer... I'm ready!

I haven't seen any other rides posted up... hope somebody has been getting out!!!

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

I hear that! Was hoping for drier weather this weekend... or next weekend?

Oh... they are already calling for rain next Saturday! Hope that changes...

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

I'm hoping for better weather as well. Other than riding to the range last Sunday, I haven't had time (or compliant weather) to do much on two wheels. I guess I need to get some waterproof gear for commuting.

Short ride tomorrow? (Sunday, 2/18)

Hmmm... weather is a toss up. tomorrow's forecast is about the same as today's... I was thinking Saturday was looking iffy, and maybe Sunday a bit better... should we give it a try tomorrow?

Angry Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

Probably won't get to ride this weekend, getting over the flu is taking longer than expected and if I can I need to get my daughters car inspected. If things change I let you know.

Rode with all my friends yesterday...

So yesterday didn't pan out for a group ride yesterday... work, flu, etc., seems to have gotten in the way. However, my last ride was December 3rd... that't TOO LONG! So I headed out solo.

Took the route from Atascocita to Huffman and the Prison to 321, up to the Alabama Coushatta Shell station via Ace and Segno. Then took 942 up to 62, back to Point Blank and 242.

Didn't catch a single car in the curves of 242! After three months off the bike, though, my left hand turns weren't really smooth... I need to ride more. Nobody got in my way, but an old guy in an RX8 easily hung with me through the curves. I just hope I wasn't holding HIM up!

The ride was great... didn't get held up by traffic, great weather... until....

I didn't realize Plum Grove Rd was closed! No detour, just a section of about 1/4 mile where the road is gone, and replaced by piles of dirt and gravel. No warning signs until about 100 yards before the closure. Looking at google, it looks like there are a few better ways around, but I went all the way back to Splendora to get around. I was about 50 or 20 miles from home, and it took 45 minutes to bet around and back home...

OK... I won't be doing plum grove road for a while!

Other than that SNAFU, it was a good ride... one that I've been needing for awhile. I'm looking forward to getting some of the gang or maybe some newbies into the rides soon.

Spring is coming!!!!

What? Somebody must have taken the detour sign down. If you had turned left just a short detour jog through the new neighborhood I believe. But my disclaimer I've never taken it, always been on the Tenere so I've went over the big gravel piles at each end. It has been like that since Harvey. I was tempted to join your ride but just arrived home 11 pm Friday riding the bike in from El Paso. Yesterday morning I didn't awake until 8 am and then ran at half speed until noon.

Bummer! I fooled around with GPS updates yesterday morning and didn't get out until about 1130!

Yes, google does indicate a way around, but i must have guessed wrong in the neighborhood... couldn't see a connecting street. I didn't take the time to investigate further.

Ok... the weather forecast for tomorrow is 20%, 40%, or 70% chance of rain, depending on the source.

Do we ride tomorrow?????
