Memorial Ride to Freddie Holcomb's Funeral

We'll leave Cypress around 9 AM. Funeral is at 3PM and the route takes an estimated 4 hours. I have planned backroads until we get to Hillsboro, which is about 80 mile from Colleyville. Will work on a place to stay once we determine how many riders will attend. This will be a long ride, 266 miles, so we'll need to be ready to ride with breaks probably every 1.5 hours. One stop will be for lunch. After the funeral, we can decide whether to stay in DFW area or ride back to Hillsboro.

    A pleasure to have participated on this Funeral for this fallen friend. Dont have to mention that I enjoyed the company, since that is always a given. Am sorry that we could not attend the burial, but we had to make a choice and decided to not deal too much with Dallas traffic in the dark. Really nice ride to the funeral. Thank you very much John.

    555 Miles round trip. 150 in the rain today, but got back home safely with Sean and Jose...Houston was dry. We'll be waiting to hear from Miguel and Fina. Cold weather and rain kept pecking away at us until we hit Navasota. It was great to be able to make Freddie's funeral. The family and friends made the Freedom Cruisers feel very appreciated. Troy and Glenda, a big SHOUTOUT for making the trek on Glenda's birthday!

    I have a motel located that is about 160 miles from north Houston. It would mean we'd ride approximately 100 miles back towards Houston before we stop. The place is between Groesbeck and Mexia. The link is below:

    Rooms are $30 for a single and $40 for double.

    Unfortunately I am going to have to work tomorrow. Please let Cordelia know that we are here for her and we are sorry for her loss. Freddie will be missed. I hate that I can't be there.

    John,
    Thank you for taking the lead on this event and making all of the necessary arrangements for the group.

      Thanks Greg, although I only met Freddie 4 or 5 times, he was a good man and friendly. I am happy to be able to have FC 44 show Cordelia the support and love from the group Freddie chose to ride with.

    I called Fort Parker Motel and they won't know until Friday at noon if they have rooms for us. If not, the Kings Inn in Mexia looks like an option. Rooms are $62 for double. Will keep everyone posted. Miguel and Fina will be splitting off after the funeral. Everyone pack rain gear. It looks like we'll have increased chances for rain on both Saturday and especially Sunday.
