Description
The 27th annual Bluebonnet Express will start from Waller ISD Stadium in Waller, Texas, 45 miles northwest of Houston. This fully supported ride is one of the Houston area’s oldest rides and is presented by Northwest Cycling Club.

Six different distances/routes will be offered, traversing both south and north of Hempstead, mostly on country roads. Cyclists will encounter both flat sections and gentle rollers. This BP MS 150 recommended ride is only a few weeks before the MS 150 which makes this an excellent training opportunity.
