    Ellis County riders?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi-ho folks!

    Have recently moved back to Texas and looking for riders. I'm hoping to get in the saddle again (after a multi-year absence) once the temps cool a bit.

    Meanwhile, I've been learning golf - yep, out hitting that unforgiving little ball in the 102-110 temps. Yee-hah!

    Anyway - any guidance to cycling groups or individuals in the area would be appreciated.

    Hi Snap!

    Yeah, Texas - 'tis my home state. And I've been away for... nigh onto 30 yrs or so (except visits).

    I love the heat (constant this summer) and am getting to spend some much needed time with dad.

    So, next year when some of you TE-ers decide to travel to Wichita Falls in August for the HHH100, I promise to come cheer you on (unless I'm able to actually get fit for it myself).

    I feel the same way. I often see others out riding, but have yet to actually meet anyone to ride with. I live in Denton/Collin county, but occassionally ride at WhiteRock Lake in Dallas.

    Ellis County

    I live in Ellis County and have recently taken up cycling. I usually ride by myself, as it's easier for me to hop on my bicycle after I get home from work. I usually just ride the back roads around where I live.

    There is an organized bike ride coming up soon. Here's the link, if you're interested.

    Well, once I started arranging a ride with the MMR contact, the rain came to Texas... and lightning and thunder. So Wednesday and today (Thursday) got sacked. We might get out tomorrow if this weather doesn't stall over us.

    We need the rain, but jeez

    The rain went away and I was able to get out today... my MMR contact was a really nice guy, as was a friend of his that joined us. It has been a long time since I rode so it was a short one - 16 miles, 46 deg with heavy wind. The route was hillier than I expected but I survived, if not REALLY slowly.

    After a hot shower and a nice club salad I feel almost human, though a tad sore.

    Will keep you posted on progress...
