I found this at the memorial trail over the weekend. Looks like a nice bike, and I'd be interested in test riding it but I feel like something important is missing from the ad...can anyone find it? ... See MoreSee Less

Slightly guilty feelings seeing so many volunteers turn out in Houston to work on our trails, but quite a few Houstonians traveled up to Ruston, LA for the second race of the TMBRA fall series and it was a wonderful time. It seems like a while since I've had a proper TMBRA race weekend road trip, and this one brought back great memories of previous trips up to Ruston. Scott SchaeferChris Sechelski and I drove up together in the wagon, leaving Saturday morning. Back home Sunday evening, tired, but happy. The 60+ start line had 9 of us lined up! Best turn out of senior gentlemen I've ever seen - including some keen competition - it was to be no walk in the park. Andy Kathan and I duked it out for the entire race till I was able to take the race in the sprint. I went hard in the first 6 miles, till Andy caught me. Then I sat on his wheel for the rest of the race as he rode smoothly, and surprisingly fast. Our time was pretty respectable! Good times. I expect all of us that were out having fun will be working on the trails next weekend. I believe I have an appointment to help at Huntsville next Saturday. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you GHORBA for partnering with sponsors HEB and 11 Below Brewing. Yesterday we had (2) Sawyer teams clear all the downed trees on South Loop, Start Hill, and the CCC Connector in Huntsville(about 2 dozen trees)! It got to a point in the hot afternoon that all we could think about was getting back to those treats sitting on ice! Thank you Christy Miller Jones for bringing it out bright and early Saturday and Scott Dammitt for supporting us. Side note: We continue to work toward getting this trail approved and open by the Forest Service, but it is closed for now. Stand by for further updates. ... See MoreSee Less

I hope everyone is recovering from Hurricane Harvey. There is still work to be done at shelters throughout the Houston/Corpus Christi/Beaumont region. I encourage you to volunteer, donate, and if you ...
"In the days immediately following Hurricane Harvey, members of the Greater Houston Off Road Bicycle Association (GHORBA) focused on helping their members out. The group used social media to organize volunteer parties to clean and gut members’ homes. At last check, GHORBA members had helped more than 30 households, spending about 500 volunteer hours per house to get the job done!"

Good morning. Almost two weeks to the day Hurricane Harvey made landfall to the Texas coastline, bringing with it almost a year's amount of rainfall and catastrophic flooding to the Houston area.
If you, your loved ones, neighborhood, or business were affected by the flooding, our hearts go out to you and we wish you a quick recovery.
GHORBA's 16 area MTB trails, located in Harris and surrounding counties, were severely damaged - some more than others. As we access each trail, please keep an eye out for upcoming Trail Work Days - these will be posted on trail Facebook pages and on our GHORBA Activities webpage.
Although Creekfest was cancelled, the 19th Annual Bike Barn Huntsville Classic Race has been rescheduled to November 18 & 19.
If you would like to contribute financially to trail rebuilding & rerouting efforts we have a new button on the home webpage for 'Hurricane Harvey Trail Relief' where you may make a donation. For Corporate or Foundation gifts, please email our Director of Fund Development, Katie Winston, directly at email@example.com.
Thank you to all for your continued support of the Greater Houston Off Road Biking Association and for keeping the sport of mountain biking alive in southeast Texas!
