Thumbs up Adventurous Riders (Portland/Corpus Christi)

My work has temporarily relocated me to the Corpus Christi/Portland area for the next ~7 months.

Looking to meet-up with some like minded cyclists. Iím no racer or roadie, and Iím just out there to have fun on 2 wheels. I enjoy challenging and long rides, but that doesnít mean you canít enjoy yourself along the way. The best rides have a little bit of adventure to them, whether that be an unknown dirt road or a stop at a rough looking bar for cold beer.

Bonus points for gravel road rides, bar rides, or fixed gear steel bikes, but Iíll ride with anyone.

More about me? Hereís a photo project that I did in 2009 with a photo for every day that I rode bikes:

Be prepared for wind. Don't expect hilly terrain. Dealing with autos will be the big adventure. Biggest hills will be large bridges. There were a few dirt trails within Corpus Christi with berms. I don't know if they still exist.

Hello.
I did a regional search and found your posts. My bike is a single speed Scott SUB50 purchased to commute to work.
My job site moved from downtown to 2 miles west of the airport; 22 miles from NAS, too far so I am leaving my car 1/2 way in a 24 hr establishment while I work my way for 20+ miles.
If you want to meet and plan a ride, email me back.

I don't live out there, but I looked through your pics and it's great to see another Surly guy. Wish I could justify the $$ of a Pugsley to go with my Cross-Check.

Do you know what the painting on the path east of the Constable Station means that says THZ "X" miles? I know it is Terry Hershey something but I don't know what the Z stands for.
