On Saturday March 5, 2006 I hit the alarm at 7:30 AM got suited up and rode out to Sugar Land and met some riders there and we headed out to Bellville, Texas to meet up with the rest of the Star Riders for the Star Riders Chapter ride led by Ripley.
Kick Stands were up at 9:30 AM and we left Newman’s Bakery headed towards Fayettville. FM 2429, FM 949, Cat Spring, and Zimmersheild are some the roads we took to Fayettville.
After a short break we headed towards St. Mary Church. The route to St. Mary was just as fun as it was to Fayettville. We wonder around the gravey yard at St. Mary Church looking for the oldest grave stone. I think 1877 was the oldest one.
On the road again headed for lunch in Columbus at Schobel’s Restaurant. When we arrived at Schobel’s With Ripley’s great planning, they were ready for us.
After stuffing our faces we headed out towards Trails End at US 290 and FM 362. It started to rain lightly on us and when we arrived in Pattison. We all decided to head towards Houston and stop at Pete’s on FM 529 instead of going to Trails End. We ended our ride at Pete’s with a few drinks.
Ripley led a spirited run. This ride was well planned and I had a great time. We only had a couple mishaps with Donna having some bike problems and Krusty & Donna dropping there bikes.
Thanks for a great ride Ripley!
