Greetings from Houston, TX

Introducing myself.


I don't remember ever not riding a bike. I think I had two other bikes before I got my Mag-Scrambler in '78. Been putting respectable mileage on bikes for maybe 20 years. I have several old bikes but put most of my miles on a 99 Gary Fisher Aquila and commute on my 88 Diamondback Apex. Hoping to buy a new bike soon.


130 miles a week is what I have been averaging as my commute is about 25 miles a day and I ride to work 3 or 4 times a week.


On weekends I ride between 35-45 miles as I take advantage of Houston's new bayou trails.


Never done a group ride.

welcome to the forums...I moved out of downtown Houston a little over a year ago and now live in Porter, but riding in Houston is better than it ever has been.

Welcome aboard, as you can see here, lots of Texans are ready to answer questions and such. I married a Texan, y'all are pretty good folks.

Good to have you here with us.
