I'm new to TX. I just moved to a small town near Beaumont. There is NO cycling community here. I think I'm the only one here that has an actual road bike. I'm wondering if there are any locals on the forum that might know about cycling groups or clubs in the area. My boss lives in Beaumont, and rides his bike on a regular basis, and his boss also bikes. But as far as I know, they're weekend warriors and don't have time other than the casual ride around town.
In addition, I've been informed multiple times that the summer here is a BEOTCH. I guess that would mean extra water bottle cages. But I'm also curious what it's going to be like. Is it really that bad?
