DON'T FORGET YOUR NEW MEMBERSHIP CARD OR YOU WILL HAVE TO SIGN A WAVER.Tuesday Jan 1 Sixteenth annual Leather and Long John ride. Due to the uncertainty of the weather and getting harder to find places open that meet the criteria for my New Years Day ride I have decided to make the destination The White's House 21118 Park Brush Ln.

We will meet at the Ellis Creek Exxon about a mile East of 99 and about a mile West of Hwy 6 at 0900 with KSU at 0930 for a leisurely ride through the country arriving at our destination around 1100. We can have a nice ride or travel by car where we can visit and get all the corn bread and black-eyed peas you can eat and still make it to all those holiday sports games or hang around and watch them here.

Buffalo Bayou Cistern on Jan 26
Saturday Ride. Join us for an historic tour of the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern followed by a steaming hot bowl of chili back at the dealership. The cistern is Houston’s former drinking water reservoir. Built in 1926 it supported the municipal water system’s goals of fire suppression and drinking water storage for decades, until the space sprung a leak in the 1970’s that could never be located and the reservoir was eventually decommissioned. It remained all but forgotten until it was “rediscovered” during the 2012 renovation of Buffalo Bayou Park, and was opened for tours in 2016.
We will meet at the dealership at 8:30 with KSU at 9:00am and will arrive at cistern to join the 10:30 History tour. Lasting just 30 minutes, the tour takes us down a dim, serpentine pathway leading into a space that once held 15 million gallons of water. The tour costs just $5 per person but you will need to purchase your tickets in advance by visiting https://buffalobayou.org/visit/destination/the-cistern/. Click on the cistern history tours and using the “Purchase Tickets” button will take you to the calendar where you will need to select the 10:30 Cistern History tour on January 26, 2019 to make your purchase.
After the tour we will return to the dealership where the Chili Cook-off event will be in full swing and we can relax with a steaming hot bowl of delicious chili.
