    You all probably know that we have maxed out our reserved number of 80 seats for the party.  Cheri got a call today looking for 2 more seats, and I also happened to be able to go down to the Stockyards and take a look at the place.  The place is really a nice venue!  

    GREAT NEWS - There is really room for 2 more tables - so we can add 16 additional seats!  Two are already taken, so now 14 are left.  They agreed to extend our deadline on food order quantity until this coming Tuesday, so registration is back open until Monday!

    UPDATE - only 20 seats left! Register TODAY!


    Our annual Christmas Party is coming up soon! We are opening registration in 3 waves:

    1- First were ride leaders who have earned 1 or 2 free party reservations. They got first dibs already!

    2 - All active members are now able to register. We will hold registration to members and their guests through this week. Seating is limited to 80 people, and we have 45 already, so please register ASAP.

    3 - If at the end of this week there are still seats available, we will open reservations up to the broader Ft Worth cycling community, including our FWBA Facebook friends, and other clubs that we ride with.

    We have a great venue, the Mayor will be there and available to mix and mingle as well as receive an FWBA award, live music by River Trip, some awesome door prizes, and a grand prize.  Vegan meals are available if you include that in your registration.  

    We want to fill the place up, so I hope you will plan to attend and register now! Go into the event on the calendar and hit the Register button!

    Our 2017 officers were unanimously re-elected for 2018 by a vote of 47-0.  It should be noted that this vote total is quite a bit higher than previous years' vote totals.  Previous years' votes were conducted during regularly scheduled club meetings, which experienced declining attendance as people's schedules got more hectic. This on-line process gave the voting opportunity to all club members, not just those present at a meeting.  

    Thanks to all who are engaged and interested enough to vote!  I encourage all members and potential members to get involved through weekly rides, planning of big events, and attendance of our picnics and parties.  

    Looking forward to even more fun in 2018!

    The rides for our KOM/QOM series are now finished! Results are being tabulated by a crack team of laid off bean counters from Funk & Wagnalls (google put them out of business) as we speak.  The results will be carefully sealed in a mayonnaise jar and not released until the Christmas Party.  We had 12 intrepid competitors vying for the coveted KOM Jersey awards.  The names of the winners will be proudly written on the front of the event jersey, and the other competitors' names will be on the back.  

    Thanks to all of the competitors and congratulations (in advance) to the winners!

    Come join us for a fun challenge! Who will be the fastest to ride 23 of our favorite hills on 10 of our FWBA routes. For those who might not be the fastest, maybe you can climb them the "mostest"! Either way, if you register you will get a pair of custom sun sleeves, and if you complete all of them at least once your name will be included on a custom event jersey that only you can get.

    The series will run April 1 through October 30, so you will have at least 2 opportunities to ride each of the hills (listed below as segments). Winners will be awarded in the following categories:
    King & Queen - Senior Division (60 and over)
    King & Queen - Prime Time Division (Under 60)
    King & Queen - Tandem Division (Mixed M/F Team)
    King & Queen - Enduro Division (Most total feet of climbing)

    To register or get more details, go to the registration page:

    An eating club with a cycling problem. For those of you nostalgic for the years gone by, or just looking for some history on the club, we have made the Paceline newsletter archive available. You can browse the issues and wile away the hours in bicycle bliss. Kudos to Mark Poulson for all of his hard work.

    Look in the Members Area -> Records Minutes, Lists -> Paceline Archive Folder.

    The new FWBA website is up and this is it! We loved the old site, but it had become technically unsupportable, so we worked very hard to preserve the basic look and feel of the previous site, while improving some functionality:

    The site remains focused on scheduling and supporting RIDES!

    We are reducing duplication and improving integration. Ride data will be hosted in RidewithGPS, which can also post notices into Facebook. Facebook has evolved into our primary photo sharing and story-telling platform. We will be looking into Strava integration for personal accomplishment posting and ride social media.

    Membership information will be easier to maintain and have improved quality. It includes a library of club information like How To Post a Ride, Ride Leader Incentives, Ride Leader Reimbursement Policy, minutes, Board Decisions, and many others.

    Club officers will be able to send mass emails to the current membership on special topics when necessary.

    So roam around the new site for a little while, but not too long - get on your bikes and RIDE!
