Hi from Katy, TX

We moved to Texas from Louisiana about 2.5 years ago. I've always had a mountain or road bike, but haven't always been an enthusiastic rider. That changed a year ago when I decided to get back on the road bike and ride the BP MS150 (again). Last year I rode 1700 miles and lost about 15 pounds and would like to continue the trend this year. I signed up again this year and look forward to seeing more of Texas from my bike.

Haha... I just "found" that ride a week or so ago. Next (this) year it will be starting at the new high school, about a mile from my house!

The Houston Tour de Cure is also in your area.



Out of order

Yeah, all of those rides out of Katy Mills are on my "home turf." Lots of nice bike friendly roads on the west side of town. I could literally ride a century right from my front door (if I wanted to!). I guess that is part of the reason I've gotten back on the bike and stayed on. It's very encouraging to see hundreds of fellow cyclists on the roads every weekend.
