    GHORBA Huntsville Classic Pre-Ride

    The annual Dave Boyd Huntsville Classic race is upon us so GHORBA will be holding a pre-ride at Huntsville State Park on Saturday, October 16th. We will meet at 9:00 am with wheels down at 9:30 am. There will be group rides for beginners, intermediate, and advanced riders. Interested in finding out what it takes to be a mountain bike racer? Here’s your chance! TMBRA will be putting on a free First Time Racers Clinic at 1:00 pm for anyone who is interested! This ride is open to all riders and not just GHORBA members so bring your family and invite your friends. Riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

    Huntsville State Park is a 2083 acre recreation area located in the Sam Houston National Forest that offers hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding , and of course mountain biking! With lots of roots, challenging climbs, and fast downhills Huntsville has some of the best trail in the area. With trails such as the Chinquapin, Triple C, Dogwood, and Prairie Branch Loop you can choose your ride to be as easy or as challenging as you like. After a long ride you can take a swim in Lake Raven to cool off!

    In the event of rain we will select another local park to ride.

    Directions from downtown Houston:

    Take I-45 North to Hwy P-40 (Exit 109)
    Turn left on Hwy P-40 and follow into the park.
    Pay entrance fee of $4.00 per person.
    Follow road and park near the nature center.

    I signed up for the race, but waited to long to reserve a site. However, I booked a motel in Huntsville so I can come to the preride and the First Time Racers Meeting. Looking forward to my first race.
