Hargrave's Solavaca Mountain Bike Adventure - A Texas Mountain Bike Trail
Watch the weather and the tweets just on the right side of this page for trail conditions, closings, or other news. Some of you know how to get Twitter to feed to your phone so you can get updates automatically.
Attention Christian friends or those that might be interested in some growth in that area! Barney Benner, Tony Nash, and I have been talking about a quarterly fellowship ride with a format that will include some Christian discussion time and then a ride or a hike if that's your thing. We are leaning toward a Saturday Morning - once a quarter at first - with maybe a gathering in the the public area and a speaker, some prayer - followed by some fellowship and then a ride. This is a loose and flexible plan at this point so your input will help. We could plan for 20-25 minutes for our meeting and then the ride will be up to you. Most people like to sit down and relax afterwards and that time too can foster some witness or whatever feeds your faith. This is developing so please chime in. email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
A reminder. The trail is what we are sharing. Stay on it please. Ride it responsibly, respecting that we have the trail built the way we like it - NEVER alter the trail. If there are dangerous developments on the trail, call me. Never ride muddy trails. In fact, if you are riding here that means that you are a Friend. Help me protect the priviledge for you and others by speaking out if you see some bad behavior. Take your trash with you. Leave the "Friends" area clean for the next guy!

Welcome to my place. It is a nice place to kick back and soak in the good country. Or you could jump on your mountain bike and pump up, down, around and through the rock strewn hills and cedar covered reaches of the Solavaca - a Texas Mountain Bike Trail. The Solavaca is very diverse with enough trail to interest beginners as well as seasoned riders looking for techincal riding and single-track in the XC tradition. In 2008, we hosted our first mountain bike race. From 2010-13, we were a regular stop for the TMBRA XC Spring State Championship Series. In 2013 we also hosted Bryan Fawley's Fossil 50. Who knows what events we might do?
Special thanks to Larry Colvin, long-time President of the FWMBA. I met Larry in October, 2007. He took the time to hear about the trail and then to come ride it. Larry rode the trail twice in the next few months, offering suggestions both on the trail and on the mountain bike scene. Just watching him ride put things in another perspective. He continues to be a great advocate and a steady source of support on many levels.
