    Make your plans for the best ride in Texas in August! Three days of scenic riding in Ft Davis, good food and good friends. Plus, it's good prep for that other little ride later in the month! If you have been, you know how fun it is. If you haven't, ask someone that has and come on!

    Dates: Aug 12 - 14

    Cost $80 for single rider, $70 each for family

    More details and sign up coming soon!

    Alpine Rodeo

    There will be a big rodeo in Alpine the same weekend. Make your hotel reservations NOW to assure you are sleeping in comfort!

    Lodging

    Stone Village is the most popular with kitchenettes or inexpensive camp rooms. You can book online or call 432-426-3941.

    Indian Lodge in the Davis Mountains State Park is a good place to stay, & very interesting. The State Park is awesome for RVs or tents.

    We want all FWBA members to ride safely and stay healthy!  Each of us can take the following actions to help protect ourselves, our friends, and our fellow riders.

    • When attending FWBA activities, please practice social distancing and mask wearing as outlined by Texas state mandates and recommendations*.  The board recommends members stay 6 feet apart at all times and wear face masks before and after rides when they are not at least 6 feet apart.

    • Please do NOT attend an FWBA activity if you

      • Are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms

      • Are awaiting COVID-19 test results

      • Have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days

      • Have been exposed, within the past 10 days, to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 (or 7 days if you received a negative test result following the exposure).

    We are updating the ride waiver to include these best practices.  Let’s all do our part to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 on our members and families.

    Ride Safe!  Your FWBA Board

    Additionally, because of current pandemic concerns, the Board unanimously agreed to postpone the 2020 FWBA Christmas Party until December 12, 2021, at Blue Mesa Grill.

    On May 18, 2020 Governor Abbott announced we are in the second phase for reopening Texas. 

    Therefore, the FWBA club will reopen sponsored rides on May 30, and the ride calendar will be repopulated by mid-June. Please keep in mind, we still need to following the Minimum Health Protocols for Individuals by practicing social distancing to slow the spread of Covid-19, especially in gatherings of 10 people or more.

    The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms. Even if an infected person is only mildly ill, the people they spread it to may become seriously ill or even die, especially if that person is 65 or older with pre-existing health conditions that place them at higher risk. Because of the hidden nature of this threat, everyone should rigorously follow the practices specified in these protocols, all of which facilitate a safe and measured reopening of Texas. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable.

    I moved from Levelland, TX in 2011 to Weatherford.  I was an active flat land rider with a couple of friends in our small town.  For several years I rode alone here until one day while riding my MTB a friendly gentlemen rode up behind me and began visiting.  He was on a faster road bike; however, he rode the 15 mile loop with me and informed me about the wonderful folks in the FWBA and all the fun rides, events and fellowship that you all enjoy.  He told me how close I live to numerous riders from the club-- I had no idea!  He encouraged me to join FWBA.  What a wonderful suggestion!  I have so enjoyed the fellowship, experience, and knowledge of the sport that members have shared.  Your hospitality is unmatched, FWBA.  I am a proud, proud member.  Thank you Wayne Kirby, for the introduction.

    If my memory serves me well I was a member of FWBA in 1970 or it could have been 1971. The meetings were held in some building on or off of Bailey St. near W. 7th. My wife and I both had Peugeot 10 speed bikes. The one event that I remember us going on was a weekend camping and ride in East Texas somewhere around Bonham. I finally sold that bike in 2007 and have recently been thinking about getting a bike to ride on the Trinity Trails. It’s good to see that the club is still around and active after 50 years.-- David Lanford

    Hey gang, we received the following response from Ranger Schmidt at Benbrook Lake Park.  Please keep in mind only parts of the park are open right now. Wear your FWBA colors and enjoy the lovely weather. :)

    "The dayuse areas of Holiday, Mustang & Rocky Creek Parks are open as of yesterday, 11 May.

    All campgrounds remain closed to all traffic both vehicular and pedestrian, including the Holiday Campground and that section of Lakeview Road.

    Bicycle traffic therefore is permitted in the North Holiday Dayuse area, but not the South Holiday Campground.  We hope to have Holiday Campground open sometime before Memorial Day.

    At this time there are no fees being charged for day use parks, and we anticipate this to continue thru most or all of the next several months.  By the same circumstances, no annual permit or other passes are currently being sold at park entrances.

    Regular traffic control remains in effect, including stopping at all entrance locations.

    Terry
