With 3 trail networks and 30 some miles of trail, Sugar Land has really been growing in popularity with the MTB community. So it gives me great pride to announce our weekly LADIES GROUP RIDE. This Ladies only, no drop group ride rotates around Sugar Land's various trails depending on trail conditions and group request.

The SLMTB Ladies Group rides are Tuesday nights at 6:00PM. For more information PM Kimberly Chernosky and join our FB page "Sugar Land MTB Trails" to see Trail status in the "PINNED POST" and find maps in the files section.

Hi Ladies (and Gents),
As some of you know, GHORBA applied for a Woman's MTB Initiative, $25,000 grant from REI a few months ago. We did apply in hopes that it would afford items we need such as new tents, trailer, marketing literature, storage, etc.
Last week we found out that we did not receive the grant but there may be future similar grant opportunities and it was really nice being invited by REI to apply.
Further, we aren't sure who received the grant in the Houston area, but it may not have been a MTBing organization as it was more of a general get women outdoors type of grant...
In the meantime, GHORBA had a big turnout for GHORBA's May Ladies MTB ride at Flintridge - about 20 people total. It was really fun too.
So, GHORBA is looking to host another Ladies ride at either Flintridge or CC in probably October or November.
Are there any trails to the south - maybe Memorial Park, Sugar Land, or Jack Brooks that could put a GHORBA Ladies MTB Ride on the calendar for either October or November?
Let us know if you'd be willing to host a Ladies MTB ride, pick a date, and We will put it on the GHORBA calendar.
Thank you in advance Ladies!
My Best,
Christy Jones
Communications Director

Please Carry ID
We helped someone on the trail today who had a compound fracture requiring an ambulance. He was carrying no ID and almost didn't remember his wife's phone number. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, wear a Road ID or at the least make a photocopy of your drivers license and insurance card and write your spouse's name or a friend's name and phone number on it. Stick that in a plastic bag and keep it in your Camelbak or back pocket! Ride safe and Happy Trails!

I finally did what I shoulda done years ago: Got myself an air compressor. No more having to head to the shop every time I wanted to set a tubeless tire. Now only $99 at Lowes ($30 cheaper than Home Depot!). It works well! ... See MoreSee Less

Cullinan Park Trails are drying up nicely and will be a go for our 1st Saturday of the month 9am group ride. We are meeting at the Main Parking lot. It will be a no drop 8.2mi full tour of Northside and West side Trails. If I I have some help I'll try to to have a 4.2mil Northside only beginner ride available. After the 8.2mi full tour if there are any fast guys we can do a second lap at speed.
