Biking in and around Houston
|||||The White Stripes - Death Letter||]|
Created this community because I think there is a decent interest in cycling around Houston as a whole. There are a few places to get information, but I know a HUGE amount of people read LJ, so I wanted to create an outlet here as well.
My intro: I commute on bike to work on most days. It is about 9 miles one-way and takes me about 45 minutes on average. Most of the route is on the paved paths of the Braes Bayou hike/bike trail, so it is definitely not as stressful to ride in as it could be.
I also *love* to ride the dirt. I have a Motobecane Fantom 29er that I ride often at either Memorial Park or The Anthills. We haven't ventured too far outside of the city for trails, but will probably do so soon.
websites of interest:
www.GHORBA.org - Greater Houston Off Road Biking Association
www.theanthills.com - website (including forum) for The Anthills
those are the two I frequent, though I do occassionally check out a couple of others.
Post about your rides (current and past) and especially if you want new riding buddies!!
