Hargrave's Solavaca Mountain Bike Adventure - A Texas Mountain Bike Trail
We love the Texas Spring - both days of it! The weather is in play so look for trail conditions updates, fast and friendly, just to the right of here and updated as needed.
The Fossil 50 was a big success. The suffering began early with temps cooler than average, but then the furnace got lit. The heat and the hills were sucking the stamina out of the racers. As the reality set in that the rocks might prevail in this little contest, the winning racers dug deep and knocked out the Fossil in just over 3 hours. The stalwart and stubborn continued to come across the line for 4 more hours! It was a tough day to MTB and the MTBers proved to be even tougher. Congratulations to all the racers and to Bryan Fawley for a great race.
You may notice some changes on the Solavaca. Some construction, and things are changing a little. Read the following link to see what's happening. USE AND CAMPING. And soon, the sign-in area will move outside our Barn area, closer to the front gate.

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. We are now a regular stop for the TMBRA XC Spring State Championship Series, and plan to host more racing in the future.
Special thanks to Larry Colvin, 2008 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.
Thanks also to DORBA who is now supporting Solavaca in ever increasing ways.
