Saturday ride/Bill L.

Republic Harley Davidson 12707 Southwest Freeway, Stafford

Saturday ride March 13, the club is starting the spring trip to a place where the BBQ is inferior to ours here in Texas. For those of us being left behind, we’re going for great BBQ at Kreuz in Lockhart! We’ll meet in the parking lot next to the Shell station by Republic, on the corner of 59/69 and Kirkwood @ 0730 with KSU at 0800. We’ve got a rest break n LaGrange (about 50 miles in) and a fuel stop / rest break at about 137 miles in. Please note: We’re not meeting at Republic, even though the route name implies that! Kruez Mkt PDF kreuz Mkt GPX We should arrive at Kreuz between 1215 and 1230. The ride is about 170 miles total. It’s a one way ride that ends at Kreuz: Everyone can stay and gorge as much BBQ (and beer) as they want, but you’ll have to find your own way back home…”

Saddle River Range

parking lot next to Shell on Kirkwood and US59

Sunday Ride to the Saddle River Range for some shootin’! We’re riding to the Saddle River Range in Conroe on Sunday, April 18. We’ll meet at the parking lot next to the Shell station at the corner of Hwy 59 and Kirkwood @ 8:30 with KSU @ 9:00. It’ll be a leisurely ride through the countryside with a rest stop at the Buc-ee’s in Cypress, about 1:15 into the ride. There will be a gas stop just before arriving at the range, about 90 miles after we leave. If things go according to plan, we’ll arrive at the range at about 11:30. There’s a café at the range; we’ll have lunch there. From there, we’ll have another leisurely ride through the countryside and end up in Sealy at about 3:00. The total ride is about 190 miles. (I’ve allocated about two hours at the range: The actual return time depends on how much time we spend at there, which of course depends on how much fun we’re having…) The range fee is $22 for one shooter in one pistol lane for one hour. It’s an additional $13 for a second shooter sharing the same lane. The range has gun rentals, ammo sales, a simulator (which sounds fun!), and something called “Archery Assault” (which sounds REALLY fun!). Saddle River GPX Saddle River PDF

Ride Through the Forest/Bill L.

Saturday is the Forests ride! We’ll be riding through three of our taxpayer funded National Forests. Come along and see something that’s good about paying taxes! We’ll start at the parking lot next to the Shell station by the dealership. Unfortunately for us, the forests are up north of Houston, so we’ll meet at 0700 with KSU at 0730. After a quick ride up I69, we’ll ride through the Sam Houston NF through Coldspring and Point Blank. We’ll continue north and ride through the Davy Crockett NF, then east through the Angelina NF. We’ll have lunch at The Eagles Nest in Zavalla. Then we head south through Woodville and Livingston back to Houston. We’ll even spend a couple of miles in the Big Thicket National Preserve! The ride ends near the intersection of I69 and the Beltway in Humble at around 3:30. If things go according to plan, it’ll be about 335 miles.
