This past weekend was great for riding. I hope that everyone was able to get outside and enjoy some time on the bike. I rode in Easter Hill Country Tour in Kerrville on Friday and Saturday. The scenery was wonderful and the hills proved to be a little too much for some because there were a number of riders walking up hills!
I thought that the Fort Worth Bicycling Association did a great job hosting this year's EHCT. We will host the event next year and we are eager to get your feedback and suggestions. Please send them to Tom Manning

The park has a large covered area for sitting and eating and it also has playground equipment for kids--bring the family! Rudy’s will cater the event and we will have a drawing for prizes. We'll start serving food at 11 AM. Each plate will be $5.
