    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.

    We'll ride 10am Sat. Meet at the Lawtonka dam to try the new switchbacks (anyone and everyone invited). Pick a time for Sun.

    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.
