Hello to all from Houston, TX

New to the forum and really enjoying all the posts. Helpful and entertaining. Just picked up my first road bike and I'm really enjoying it. I live in the Champions area and unfortunately it doesn't seem to have access to any of the great rides like I see in other areas of town.

Welcome Sid!

You have a Bike Barn location out your way that does regular weekly rides. Unless of course I am missing the boat completely on your location.

Welcome to BF. I live in the Kingwood area. The Woodlands Cycling club is not too far from you. They have rides on a regular basis.

Thanks all for the welcome. I see Bike Barn by my house has a 44 mile weekly, BUT 18-22 MPH is a little brisk for me.

Hello from central Houston. There are great trails to explore down here if that's of interest to you.

Needed to do a little modification and I'm ready to seek out some new areas.

Look out H-town, I'm on the move!
