Summer Cycling Hello,

We are working on a mid-year GHORBA FUNdraiser - online raffle to be exact. Each item will have a different ticket, price point, and exclusive win.

There are some terrific items so far, details soon.

If you or your company has a new item, coupon, rental property, or service valued at $25-25,000 and you'd like to reach thousands of area MTB trail users or just want to donate to our totally awesome HTX trails, please IM Christy Miller Jones or email Membership@ghorba.org

GHORBA is a 501(3)c and proud to give supporters a receipt for donation to the best MTB trails in SE Texas!

Thank you and the trails thank you!

MTB Regards,
Christy Jones

I just received word from the Forest Service that more trail is opening at Double Lake starting this weekend. See the attached trail map. The outer and Western most section of DLRA will remain fully closed and the closure will be extended out to the road. If you are used to race routes, please revise your routes and remember that there may be more two way traffic than historically until the full network is open. ... See MoreSee Less

Harris County DA Kim Ogg spoke in NW Hou area last week and touched on several biking related topics. If you don't have time to watch the entire video, here are some biking and green spaces highlights:

17:30 Green Spaces/Biking
18:30 Bike Houston & 3 ft. rule, letters to drivers
19:30 Hit bikers
19:44 More Green Spaces, duty to make safer
25:00 More Community payback - "Clean & Green Program" for non violent offenders
53:20 "Clean & Green"

There were other good conversations related to biking and green spaces before and after the presentation and during the question and answer period toward the end.

The entire video is a great watch, these are just some of the biking and green space highlights.

Thank you to DA Kim Ogg for coming out and touching on biking and green space issues, as well as area crime, and thank you to Larry Lipton of Allstate Insurance for organizing, filming, and posting the video link.

Alright, Since Im back in the saddle again with cycling Ive decided I am ready to get with the times and upgrade to a 27.5 FS mountain bike. I love my Racer X, best bike I have ever owned. The market place is a mess with options now it seems. Looking for options and the reason behind them in regards to whats out there. Have any of you gone back to a hardtail from a FS with the bigger wheel size? I see that most of the big name brands are 2x11 or 1x11, is this the new norm? ... See MoreSee Less
