Bike Through the Forest and Hills

January 21 2017
Coldspring, Texas, USA
 

The 6th annual “Bike through the Forest and the Hills” benefitting the Kingwood Fillies is ready to put you to the test.  Described by previous participants as one of the most beautiful and challenging bike rides anywhere, “Bike through the Forest and the Hills” is the perfect training ride for the BP MS 150.

The ride begins in the small, charming town of Coldspring, Texas, which is located just northeast of Houston off of Highway 59.  You immediately start on hills that you just do not find on other bike rides… hence the title “Bike through the Forest and the Hills.” The ride then levels out onto clean and open scenic roads into the “Forest.”  Your return dash to the finish brings you face-to-face once again with those challenging hills, perfect preparation for the MS 150 end of Day 1 and the start of Day 2 through Bastrop State Park!
 
Our bike ride has four routes: 12, 23, 35 and 46 miles. The various distances allow riders of all skill and fitness levels to participate with the 46 mile route being described as “one challenging ride.” One of the perks of the ride is banana muffins!  The Kingwood Fillies are known far and wide for our banana muffins, which are often described as a highlight of the ride.  The ride has full SAG support and multiple rest stops.  Every rest stop offers fruit and drinks, as well as port-o-
potties.  So whether you feel like taking a break, need help with a flat, want a lift or are looking for one more banana muffin, we will be there for you. After the ride, you can rest, relax and get something to eat in Coldspring.  The quaint Texas town in the hills offers many local restaurants, cafes and shops to enjoy following the ride.
