Biking at Brazos Bend

Ok, I have to apologize to you guys for such late notice, but especially to HSS member, Vicki. She suggested this meetup about a week ago, but I'm just now getting around to feeling you guys out about it.

The idea is to gage interest in a biking meetup at Brazos Bend on Nov. 24 (the Sat. after Thanksgiving). Yes, that's really soon (see admission of being a loser above).

Hopefully the weather will cooperate. There are nice smooth dirt trails all over Brazoz Bend park. If there is sufficient interest, we could meet at the Nature Center where they have baby alligators to pet & other stuff. (Unsure if there is a star party that night.)

Please use the Comments section to discuss, and/or send an email through Meetup to Vicki.

    I tried to post a reply earlier. We should do trails around 40 acre and spillway to see gators. Bluestem and White.. Are good to. I have a crude map and u will get one at entrance.

    Ok, I'm going to try to arrive at the Nature Center around 1-1:15pm or so. I guess we will muster there.

    I'm not familiar with the trails, but I ride a mountain bike, and am comfortable on paved to novice to advanced tracks. I'm perfectly happy following anyone's lead who might have experience riding at Brazos Bend. Vicki???

    Vicki, yes, please post with your other groups. Btw, the forecast for Saturday looks pretty good. Actually nice and cool.

      I posted suggestions on HAT and TOWN groups, but it needs 2 members to rsvp in order to post as an event.

    The Observatory domes will be open Saturday if you want to stay to look at the moon and stars after dark. $5 tickets (sold at 5pm) are available to look through the telescopes-it should be dark enough by 6pm. We can decide that afternoon if the group wants to stay for this or not.

    I would love to, as I am trying to get involved in biking groups also, but the notice id too short, I'll be out of town.

    Sounds fun, but it would be nice to try for a morning ride at some point. Afternoons are out for many people with young ones who nap.

    Would love 2 cycle. Just returned from Uganda Rwanda. Any body want to hear about it?

    Johnny and I are pretty active in the HA group but I don't think we've made it to a Skeptics meetup yet. We are obsessed with Brazos Bend State Park and are game for bike riding this Saturday! :-)

    I can also try to post this event with TOWN (a small meetup -outdoor women's group) and/or HAT (Houston area trails which is a huge group).

    If we can't pull this even off this weekend, let's keep an eye out for another date to do the bike ride. This would be a great way to spend a Saturday!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
