    We'll ride North using some little traveled back-roads, then loop around and return to CH.  Long ride, ca. 51 miles in the hills. Cool weather!

    8am start, Note: Sunday ride due to weather

    To get there, take Highway 290 from Houston, go about 65 miles (12 miles past Hempstead) until you come to the flashing light at the intersection of Hwy. 290 and FM 1155. There's a sign there that says "Chappell Hill" to the right. Turn right on FM 1155 and go about 1 mile to the center of town. Turn right on Poplar. We are now parking in the empty lot on Poplar just a block from Main Street. Not a pay lot, but there is a donation box if you feel generous.  Rest rooms available.

    • 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    • Columbus, TX

    Ride Starter: Ronald

    The usual ride up to the small town square including the "church loop", ca. 41 miles.  

    One of our prettiest rides.  Routes of 37, 42 and 51 miles through scenic, rolling countryside.  Good roads and pretty scenery, very little traffic. Short route goes to Fayetteville and back. Be sure to spend some time at the beautiful Fayetteville town square. The longer routes miss Fayetteville, but go through Frelsburg before heading back to Columbus via Zimmerscheidt Road and the Mentz Community. 

    To get there, go about 75 miles west on I-10 to US-90/Columbus exit, cross bridge to Courthouse Square. Park on the south side of the square.

    Best ride location and options.  We'll go for ca. 45 miles with rest stop.

    Several distances ranging from 33 miles to 59 miles, pretty hilly by HBC standards. Rest stops in Independence and Burton. Optional loop to Lake Somerville if you wish to add some miles. 

    Start: To get to the start, take Hwy. 290 northwest and keep going past Hempstead, past Chappell Hill, and then another 10-12 miles to Brenham. Follow signs to Blinn College. Park in the lot on College Street at the college. 

    **Note: Check road condition on 290 before heading out, might need to use alternate route***

    Ride Starter: Ronald

    Pretty ride on quiet backroads to New Ulm and back, ca. 41 miles

    To get there, head west on I-10 to Sealy then keep going on I-10 towards Columbus.  Take exit 709 off I-10 and pull into the parking lot of TA Travel Center which is a truck stop with a Shell station. Park away from the store if possible.  We'll meet there and start the ride going on Bernado Rd and other back roads to New Ulm and back.
