    Cool A Rocky Hill Christmas Dec. 11-12

    Mark you calendar for December 11th & 12th as Rocky Hill Ranch and the Austin Ridge Riders are planning a weekend of fun, and an opportunity to share our love for the trail.

    It's time for the annual ARR Christmas event and this year we have collaborated (conspired?) to have some fun and give a little love to RHR.

    Everyone is invited, regardless of their mountain bike affiliation or city of origin.

    If you have enjoyed Rocky Hill in the past and would like to celebrate that vibe with those who share it, you are welcome.

    If you have never been to Rocky Hill this is a golden opportunity to sample this unique riding experience.

    Being the week prior to the Fat Chuck's Revenge Marathon race makes it perfect timing to lend a hand getting the place prettied up.

    Those gracious souls willing to volunteer will get their access and tent camping courtesy of RHR. (Volunteers with RV's may apply the tent camping discount to their hookup fee)

    Workday plans are for the usual easy workday of 4 hours in the morn, then ride and play the rest of the day. This will be a Paydirt eligible event for those wanting to mix racing with pleasure.

    The work will range from collecting tubes and trash on the trail to trimming back the flora encroaching on our beloved singletrack and raking the Fall leaves from the more obscured paths to make navigation easier on those riders coming out for the suffer-fest the following weekend. Other volunteer assistance will be needed around base camp for assorted tasks.

    The fun will include riding in the Lost Pines, and chances are good that we'll get some impromptu skills events together for Saturday afternoon.

    Rumors are flying about a shiny silver canister (or two) and other refreshments.

    More info to come . . .

    Please post here or PM if you plan to attend, and let us know if you would like to volunteer for Saturday and/or Sunday work periods.

    Thank you and Happy Holidaze!

    By "especially for you" I really mean any and all Houstonianites. Even those who aren't "practicing" Mojos.

    I was hoping to get a good bunch of the Houston MTB crowd out for this. Making trouble is always a good way to get the word out, right? Well, at least it is fun.

    If you would be so kind, please let others in the Bayou City know about it. Post the info in any other forums that might be interested, spread the word, stir the pot, whatever it takes. Muchass Grassyass.

    The majority of RHR users come from Houston and it would be great to see a bunch of 'em come up to celebrate and share a little holiday cheer with the trail they love.

    you could post on GHORBA and DORBA forums. doubt many riders from Dallas will show up but who knows.

    didn't realize most riders that come out to RHR are from Houston, that's interesting.

    We'll have the old Saloon to use as our base of operations, and for dining and general mayhem.

    Grey says we can build a ground fire in front, as long as it is always attended.

    I'm tossing in a 19" Giant Rainier aluminum hardtail frame as a prize. Built in the early 21st century, delicately abused, retired when I went full-squishy seven years ago.

    Lunch both days will be chili, so if several folks want to whoop up some cornbread (jalapeno?) it would be welcomed.

    There's a pretty good scrap lumber pile cleared from the Saloon de-construction. If some folks with mad carpenter skillz would like to rummage through it and pre-build jumps and bridges, I have some places for them. Please PM me if this interests you.

    Best guess on weather, from wunderground, "Thursday Night through Saturday Partly cloudy. Lows 39 to 44. Highs in the upper 60s." A night ride could be on the table for Saturday.

    ARR is providing many tools, though if you have tools that you prefer, bring 'em.

    We're focusing on clean up of overgrowth, picking up trash, and some raking of leaves where the trail is getting tough to find.

    Thanks!

    Wife is working a double this weekend, so I'm out. As my penance, next time I ride out there I'll pick up random tubes and gu packets I see on the side of the trail.

    Maybe I'll see you on the Madrone early next year if you get a kitchen pass for the New Year's Day ride!

    Weekend forecast

    and now for the weather

    It's looking pretty fine for the weekend!

    For those staying the night, plan on camping near the old Saloon, that's where the action is going to be.
