The Houston Big Ring Challenge....It's this weekend! We in Houston are so lucky to have so many great shops that support cycling and GHORBA! Many thanks to our local shops who've helped with this race. Check out the website for complete list of sponsors.

Don't forget that on Saturday the course at Double Lake is open for pre-riding all day. The Kids Kup starts at Noon with great activities for kids 10 and under.

Also on Saturday at 1:00pm is the Pedalmasher Beginner Racer's Clinic. It's free and open to everyone! They cover everything from registration to race etiquette and also go on a pre-ride of the course.

GHORBA will have the K2 Razorback 3.0 Bike Raffle tickets for sale all weekend. $3 each or 4 tickets for $10 - great deal! thanks to Cyclone Cycles for this generous donation. The drawing will be on Sunday during the beginner awards. You need not be present to win.

There will be food vendors and a Sports Massage Therapist, bike shops will have demo bikes for you to try all weekend.

Race Day is on Sunday with the Sport class starting at 9:00 am, Experts at 11:00 am and Beginner at 1:30pm.

Come out to Double Lake in the Sam Houston National Forest. It's going to be a fun weekend!

If you would like to volunteer, let me know, I'm sure we could always use more help!

Thanks all, I hope to see you this weekend!
