Group rides in Kingwood/Humble area?

My wife and I are going to be moving this summer to Kingwood, we currently live in the Memorial area of Houston and have no trouble finding group rides in our part of town, but it appears there's a lack of riders (or at least organized groups) in the Kingwood area. Does anyone know of a shop on the NE side of town that does group rides?

If anyone lives in that area, where do you ride?

Awesome, thanks for the link. I did quite a bit of googling and came across the Better Bikes group rides in Humble, but that FB link you gave me has posts from a Kingwood Cyclists yahoo group too. Looks like their rides start about 2 miles from the neighborhood we'll be living in.

There is a group that rides most Saturday mornings at the Lifetime health club on W. Lake Houston Parkway. I see them when I am out biking. The Humble Lions Club has a ride on 2/18/2012 at the Humble Career Technology Education Center. This link has more information

What time do they leave? I guess they gather at the shop on FM1960? Yes, the rain could be a damper. I was thinking of riding the Puddle for the Ducks ride in Katy.

I ride FM 1314 from Porter to Conroe (336) and to 105
Also ride 59 as far as Shepherd
Be careful at FM2090 intersection where 512 exits (Splendora) the frontage road there is not a berm on the north side. It is a concrete ditch and forces you into the traffic lane also vehicles treat you like a target there. Take a good look before crossing the 512 exit (512 has no berm)

FM 1010 narrow

FM 2025 from Cleveland to Coldspring

FM 150 from Shepherd to Coldspring

FM 222 from Shepherd to Coldspring

Daw Collins road narrow but quiet

Old 105 ruff

105 from Conroe to Cleveland OK

Morgan Cemetery Rd. OK

Fostoria road not much berm and traffic

FM 1485 Good berm

FM 3083 Good berm

FM 2090 OK berm

Stay off Crockett Martin

Stay off Old Houston between FM 2090 and Hwy 242

Traffic patterns have changed on route 242 and many areas have very little berm

On the Old Houston Rd. between FM1485 and FM1314 riding south there is a house almost at FM1314 on the west with 2 Pit Bulls that jump over the fence and chase very well. Going south turn right at the stop sign to avoid them.

I have been on most of the roads you list. The route I use frequently is US59N to FM2090 W to the Valero station almost to Loop 336, left at the station onto Creighton Rd. to FM1314 and then to Porter. Good road shoulder most of the route except for Creighton but it has very low traffic.

Yes, meet at the shop for a 7:30 roll out time. Good ride if your not too fast or slow. most of the group does about 20-22mph pace with a few doing 25+ and a few much slower. Most times there is a police escort to let the group roll though the lights in town too. Typically 40-90 riders total.
