Hill County Ramble 100k graveler

“Springtime in Texas, where you never know what the weather’s gonna be. Could be 80 degrees, 50 degrees, windy, calm, sunny, cloudy, rainy…on the same day. With the exception of calm, April 22 was all the above. Being the only one of our little group that bothered to show up and since I had all […]

Today was a spur of the moment ride. Great weather and a schedule change presented an opportunity to ride. I decided it was a mtn bike kind of day so I decided to link a couple local trails via the Katy Trail. So I took off from creve coeur park and rode the single track […]

Chasing Out the Border Ruffians

“Another gorgeous weekend called for another long gravel ride. Being familiar most of the gravel roads south of town and northwest towards Lawrence, we decided to mix it up a bit and head out from Spring Hill and come into Lawrence from the south side. Got an early start on the day from the Spring […]

A Full Moon Metric

“When Mother Nature gives a gift of spring like days, in February, you take it and ride. With mild temps and a full moon to boot, we started out with 7 @ 7:00 (4 of us chasing the cup), as we rolled out south into the farms and fields of Hill County Texas. The moon […]
