    Houston Big Ring Challenge 10/23 & 24

    GHORBA'S Houston Big Ring Challenge October 23rd and 24th brings the return of the Big Ring Challenge to Houston. The 5th race in the TMBRA BMW X3 Fall Cup will again be held at Double Lake Recreation Area in Coldspring, Texas. The race is GHORBA's big fund raising event for the year and also a lot of fun. Come out and enjoy the cool fall weekend of biking, camping, and camaraderie.

    Who can race? EVERYONE!!! there are classes for Beginners through Experts, Men & Women, even Junior classes. You can purchase a one-day NORBA license (required) at registration for only $5 , if you don't hold an annual license. Registration is open Saturday and Sunday. There will be an excellent beginner race clinic on Saturday afternoon. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and then pre ride the race course. The race is on Sunday.

    BikeSport is also sponsoring a Cyclo Cross Clinic on Saturday afternoon. Bring your cross bike or do it on your mountain bike.

    Who can volunteer?? EVERYONE!!! There will be plenty of opportunities to help out all weekend. If you are available to help, even if only for a couple of hours, please let me know. We'll need people on Saturday and Sunday. Just respond to this email.

    Welcome to new associate sponsors, Bike Barn and BikeSport. Thanks also to Bicycle World and Fitness and Bay Area Schwinn Bicycles for their support.

    This is the best course on the TMBRA calendar for first time racers to get their feet wet.

    Very similar to Huntsville State Park in the piney woods, with fewer roots!

    from downtown it's 50-55 miles. About an hours drive. It takes me a little longer from the westside travelling bltwy 8 to 59 N. Still less than 1.5 hours
