It is the season for the MS150. That's an annual bicycle ride between Houston and Austin. For those who don't know, the MS 150 is a charity ride for the benefit of National Multiple Sclerosis Society. There are more than 100 similar extraordinary rides across the nation. So if you find this intriguing, follow the link for more information.
I was thinking of doing this ever since I heard about it when I was new in Houston 5 years ago. Still have not done it yet. I better start getting in shape if next year is to be the one.
Clubs and groups of cyclists usually start serious training in January and then ramp up considerably in the spring. Last weekend they were everywhere. Only a couple of weeks left for the big weekend. April 17-18.
Good luck to all riders.
