Biking in and around Houston

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!!

Hello!

My name is Jenn and I love to ride! I used to work @ Whole Foods and while I was there my bike was my only mode of transport and I LOVED IT! Now I work at a salon on W Gray (White) and go to school at I-10 and the beltway so I can only ride at night or on the weekends. I'm always on the lookout for new people to who love long rides through the city @ night or whatever..I'm down! Oh yeah I live in Montrose and have a no name mountain bike that I beat the hell out of so I like trails too
