Come Ride With Us Meetup Group - 12-14-14 - Houston

Hey everyone! We are riding with a different group this week. It's a really inviting and helpful bunch. It starts over by the heights and is only about 29 miles long. More details if you follow the link.


"Welcome to one of our monthly favorites - The Urban Bridges Ride! We love it and know you will too! This is a short and sweet route but don't underestimate it - you'll get your heart pumping with 11 bridges/underpasses (we counted 'em). The roads and scenery are good and the company is too. Afterwards, we'll do brunch at Dry Creek Cafe, not far away. Join us!"

It was a good ride. I took the old bike out and tried out the downtube shifters for the first time on a real ride. While the shifting took a little more planning ahead, I think the bike is actually faster than my newer one. My gps screwed up the first 5 miles but here's the report. Nothing too impressive. Actually avg speed was more like 17 something.
