Most of my cycling buddies are too busy lately to ride (girlfriend, work, family, etc.) and, while I do most of my riding solo contentedly, it's nice to have someone to ride with occasionally.
I've been getting into MTB lately, and prefer easy to intermediate trails. Still love my roadie too. Usually ride out from the Southern part of Houston.
Oh yeah, every once in a while, do a 32 mile Sunday night ride out of Terry Hershey.
