Save the date – Saturday, November 14, 2015
…because that is the day for the annual, but highly informal, bicycle ride I host from my home each year. This will be the Seventh Annual Fall Finale 50ish Mile Country Path Ramble. It’s a social ride intended for a relaxed, conversational pace to leisurely celebrate the usually pleasant weather we have here in north Texas in November. We stop frequently for photos, snacks, or coffee brew-ups, and we take the better part of the day to cover approximately 50 miles of paved and un-paved rural county roads.
I’ll confess that I’m a little distracted by my upcoming trip to the DC area to visit my grandson (and his parents) in early October. But I’ll post more details on the Ramble here in the future. For now, I want any returning veterans of the ride to be able to plan in advance and invite their friends to join in.
Oh yes!!! I had a feeling that you would be posting a date soon for the Ramble. I am looking forward to it. I told a buddy of mine from Arizona about it. He would like to join us. I trust this is okay.

Great to hear, Luis, I hope you both can make it!
I can live on just the memories, Chris.
It was a grand ride.
May be I will join again, someday.
Thanks, Chandra, wish you could join us. Surely, there must be something just as great not too far away.
50 miles sounds like a long long way. But, you know, things are possible. i’m already up to 12 miles — Without dying – so maybe by November I’ll be able to do it. We’ll see.
I’m sure my Rivendell will be delighted to go that far.
Hi Fred, I haven’t nailed down a route for this year, but last year we had a 35 mile shorter option. There is a possibility we will do the same route/option this year, but I reserve the right to change things up. When I look at routes, 50 miles is my maximum. Historically, I’ve been closer to 40-45. Keep in mind, however, that there is a lot of wind exposure out here, and most of the routes are not paved.
