    new to Houston area, near cypresswood, any local groups?

    Hey all.
    I just moved to Spring, right around Meyer park.

    I was wondering if there were any groups around or certain days everyone met up for rides?

    I would classify myself as a beginner with very little bike stamina, but not really out of shape. so I'm currently looking for around 5 mile, moderately easy stuff. going to check out cypresswood trail soon.

    thanks

    Check with the bike shops in your area. The Woodlands Cycling Club has rides as well.

    Cypresswood's my favorite local trail - especially since I can ride to it from my house.

    I've never joined a group ride, but the Bike Barn at Champions (1/2 mile from the trail head) purports to sponsor a group ride there every Saturday morning.

    Start slow, then taper off.

    I live right near Meyer park and spend a fair amount if time on these trails. I'm not in the best shape either but if you're ever in need of a tour guide leave me a message and I'd be more than happy to show you around.

    If you see an old guy on a blue framed Titus with a Lefty, flag me down and let me welcome you to the area. I'm Tom.

    I used to live on the trail (parents house) and was a rogue builder on it before the ghorba days when the back bowl used to be super gnar. I miss living on the trail, getting home from work and climbing on my bike and riding till it got dark. Cwood was the greatest daily trail, nothing too crazy to get hurt on and it flowed decently well. You're gonna love living so close to the trail! Night riding cwood is really fun too, dammit i miss cwood!!!

    Yo I'm Matt and I ride a Vassago Optimus Ti and drive a White Dodge Laramie pichup. If you see me out there flag me down. There are a lot of Facebook Groups for all the Cypresswood trails so look them up.
    I got some pretty decent Niners!
