Riders of the North is a Social Bike Ride in the northern suburbs of Houston in an attempt to get a Critical Mass going. Our first run was last night (Thursday) from 7:45 pm until… well… much later.
We had our first ride last night and at any given point in time had between 15-20 people. Not bad for a first run. We met in Old Town Spring and traveled to The Woodlands, hung out in Market Square at Bar Louis, and headed back to OTS again. Depending on where you were coming from, whether you rode your bike or drove your car to OTS, the ride was between 20-25 miles. My legs feel AWESOME, aka this is one of the best work outs ever.
We’re going to be doing this weekly until we get enough people interested in doing a formal Critical Mass at the end of every month. We’d love to have more riders join us, just hit up our facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/610444132308669/
We stopped to eat at Bar Louies where I downed a Chicken Caesar Salad, a crap ton of water, and Angry Orchard Beer. That beer was phenomenal and extremely refreshing after cranking out ten miles on my bike.
So while I’m not reading, come join me for a bike ride. Even in the Texas heat, after dark with the wind in your face, the world feels great. There are some great peeps on the ride and despite a few kinks along the way (people riding at WAY different speeds, two flat tires, and a spill), I think we all had a blast. I certainly did.
If you know of any great bike books, leave me a comment. I’ll read them.
