Anyone know of any organized rides in Texas?

I have never been on an organized ride, or any other for that matter, and I would love to do one! Can anyone help? scubajim47@verizon.net

Texas is quite large. Please be more specific. I can reach Atlanta quicker than I can reach El Paso. Texas has counties larger than some states.

A good source of charity rides, primarily North and East Texas is www.bicycle-stuff.com.

Are you referring to organized rides (one-day)? Or multi-day tours?

If the former, check out www.bicycle-stuff.com as suggested above. There is no shortage of rides in North Texas during the spring and summer.

If the latter, bummer. You missed a great organized small tour across Texas last year. Bikin' Mike Keel from Plano Cycling and Fitness organized a supported tour from the Gulf to Oklahoma. There were about 15 of us on that one. We did 700 miles in 7 days. It was the best vacation of my life, to date.

This year we might do the Oklahoma Freewheel.

How about the HHH, the biggest ride of them all? It's a fun thing to do at least once in your life.
