December Meeting Update

We hoped to have our annual Holiday party as an outdoor-only event this coming Monday, December 14th. Unfortunately, with evening temperatures forecast for the mid to low 40s, that would make for an uncomfortable event. And, with the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, many people may not feel comfortable with an indoor gathering.

Christmas Lights Ride

The Board, in trying to be respectful of the health and well-being of all our members. has decided the Club will wait for warmer temperatures to schedule a relatively short-notice Christmas Lights ride, hopefully followed by an outdoor beverage for all who are comfortable with gathering.

Blazing Saddle 75 August 3rd

Anyone looking for a challenging ride this weekend needs to check out the Blazing Saddle 75 in Granbury, TX. It’s a scenic ride on a challenging course with plenty of hilly terrain and several “signature” climbs.

Think of it as great training for the upcoming Hotter’N Hell 100!
