Any morning riders or riding groups in DFW?

I'm a teacher "off" for the summer and I'm bored riding by myself every day. I need someone to either chat with, or push me a little bit, or convince me to do the extra miles. I know the FWBA has the rusty chain gang, and they are fine folks, but I need a little more speed. Anyone know of a morning group or want to start one? I live right off the western edge of the Trinity trail.

On weekdays, most of the organized rides are in the evenings. the LMRA Bicycle Club and MBBC both do Saturday morning rides at a good pace, but I don't know of any on weekday mornings.

Get your arse out of bed at dark-thirty, ride out to Crowley, and you can ride with me to work. I leave promptly at 4:45.

Or if you're off for the summer, just stay up until 4:45!

Greg and I both ride weekend FWBA rides occasionally. But the only weekday ride other than the Rusty Chain Gang rides he already mentioned is the Thursday Burleson ride. And he's doing a 200k this Thursday, so I don't think he'll make that.......LOL.

Or I'll sleep in and miss the damn 200k entirely! At this point, I think it'd be easier if I started at 9pm, rode all night, and showed up at your door to keep you company to work before riding home!

My sleep schedule is so messed up right now. It was not the brightest idea to take so many graduate hours with such tough professors. Thankfully next week is my last week for two of those classes, and my last papers and presentations are getting done now.
