Fall century rides Houston area

Hopefully, this fat almost 60 year old will be ready for a century by late September or October. I'm looking for one in the Houston area. All I want is to complete one, not race through it. Anyone know of any?

I just signed up for this. It's 150 miles over two days around Galveston Bay, October 18-19. It's giving me incentive to get better. :-)

My preference is for a one day century. This one may do, my wife is from Lufkin and I know the area well. It has a well-organized, if small biking community:
