    How about riding Sat. morning?

    Also, there's a refuge area trails meeting at Lawton City Hall tonight at 5, and also another out at Medicine Park tomorrow.

    Wish I could ride both days, but 9 or 10 on Sunday is good for me.

    2013 Fool's Dozen Mounain Bike Ride in Medicine Park, OK

    Since Ft. Sill is not hosting the 12 Miles of Hell, or the Hills of Hell, or the Mountains of Mayhem in 2013, we are organizing a mountain bike ride in Medicine Park, OK this year.

    The "Fool's Dozen" will be an unsanctioned 12-mile fun ride for intermediate to advanced riders (too rocky to recommend to beginners). The ride will begin in downtown Medicine Park at 10:00 am on March 30, 2013.

    Sign-up ($20) will be day of ride beginning at 8:00 am. First 3 dozen registrants will receive a T-shirt, so get there early.

    Fool's dozen route map

    Here's the route map for the 2013 Fool's Dozen Mountain Bike Ride in Medicine Park. There will also be an advanced route that will add another few miles to this route for those who haven't gotten enough after 12.

    Ride is ON!

    Only 40% chance of scattered storms. High of 70 and light east winds. Sounds nice to me. Ride is on. Even if we get rain, trail can be ridden muddy as well...It's 75% rock base.

    I just rode the course yesterday and it's ready to go. The newer sections are marked with survey tape and the established sections are easy to follow. We look forward to seeing as many riders as possible come out. This is a low dough event being put together by the local riders (Mountain Bike Club of the Wichitas) to help get our local trails improved, signed and established as a system.

    Keep in mind, it's just a fun ride rather than a race, so no trophies for the fast guys, but if you can make it up all the climbs without putting your foot down, you will have serious bragging rights.

    Make sure and yield to the fisherman when you cross the dam. Don't run over their poles, bait, feet, etc.

    I'd like to thank everyone who made it out for the 1st annual Fool's Dozen ride. Hope it was enjoyable to all who rode. I'll see if I can get ahold of some photos to post this week. I didn't take any, but I know someone who did.

    Since the 2014 Sooner Stampede is going to be on 3/30, we're going to schedule the Fool's Dozen in Medicine Park, OK for the weekend of April 5th. Our goal this year is to make it more of a MTB festival and have more events like shorter group rides and a timed race. More info to come.

    The old 12 Miles of Hell trails are still out there at Fort Sill. I haven't ridden them in quite a while though. You have to check in to ride them, so it's just easier to ride the trails around Lake Lawtonka.

    I'm moving back to the area in a few weeks and I have just started mountain biking here in Wichita Falls. I've biked the trail here numerous times. I'm still a noob but I really enjoy riding. I'm excited about the trail in medicine park. How does it compare to the one down here. Can u break the trail up in segments so kids can join or is it kid-friendly? I have a trek hardtail 4500. Will that handle the trail fine? Also it's in need of some tires and misc upgrades. Where's a good place to go get some stuff for it and some advice on what to get. Years ago I remember Terry's bicycle was there. Are they still around? Does the place in medicine park have any accessories? Sorry of all the question but your advice is appreciated. Thanks

    My 13 year old and I rode the trail on hard tails in April. It looked like there were a couple bail out points.

    The boy did fine and is ready to ride it again.
