New Guy in Plano Texas

Hi there, new to the area and looking for others... Just relocated from San Diego, CA. Daily commuter (to Irving) and anxious to find out how the rest of you are doing it. I think I have lost ten pounds just by commuting in this heat, so any stay cool tips will be appreciated.

Are there any formal or informal get togethers in the area? Also any tips on short med and long recreation rides (when it cools down a little).

Looking forward to meeting/chatting

Posts: 244 is where you'll find rides and meetings in our area. I'm in Garland. Just did a ride (they call em Pie Runs) to Celina last Saturday. I believe there were about 75-80 bikes. Here is the trip report Next big sponsored ride is to Marble Falls at the end of August.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to the heat... I'm in Garland also and missed the pie run as I was having to work... but rode to work on both Saturday and Sunday. Might as well get some pleasure out of it. Don't have any heat advice for you as I take the truck when it gets too hot.
