    Based on a facebook post, the DORBA site is basically down and out. I think the new and improved version goes live sometime next week (May 15th?).

    I wish they would just do away with the forums (if that was the problem)... trail conditions are the most important thing there for me
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    This was later clarified in the same thread to state that no definite go-live date for the new site has been made public.

    Calm the h3ll down, it's just a transitional phase. FYI, the www.dorba.org URL has been temporarily redirected to new DORBA Meetup site, which asks for patience until the new website goes live.

    FWIW, I am not a DORBA trail steward or board member, but if you feel like you can run things better than they are currently being run, you can always volunteer your services. Personally I am just thankful that I live in an area where there are so many folks with the time and passion to devote to the sport.

    PS also meant to write that I travel a lot on biz, and there are very few areas in the country that have as many local trails or is as active as DORBA.
    Mind your own religion.

    Rain is coming.
    Looks to be hit and miss and no one came up with a back up plan on how to keep trail conditions updated.
    We have our little thread here.
    A few trail stewards do email me directly. Thank you guy's for supporting riders access to open trails.
    Anyone who knows if a trail should be opened or closed over the next 24/48 hours please post up on the trail conditions thread.

    Yeah, she's down for the count...

    Welcome to the temporary home of DORBA.org. The old site finally ran into problems that keep it from being able to handle the load. Nothing is lost. But there is signifcant work to do to get the assets where folks can harvest them.

    Right now we need as many of the DORBA leadership to register so they can be given rights to edit and ad pages, etc. to help keep everyone informed.
    Where will I get my Classifieds fix? CL just doesn't cut it anymore. I'm jonesing already...

    Dorba seems to be itermittantly redirecting to either Facebook, or a "Meetup" based site. Is the Meetup site the "new" site. or is it temporary?

    DORBA is up. It's the Texas power grid that goes down stealthily to make it look like DORBA's fault. ;-)

    DORBA answers every single question asked with the statement, "Why don't you volunteer?". For a club that brags about being the largest in the country, it sure is very secretive, as well as always displaying a nasty "chip" or their shoulder when people point out the obvious about certain aspects of the club. Why can't DORBA be more informative to it's paying members who volunteer, i am one of these people. The attitude DORBA projects has declined over the last ten years, and it sucks right now. All members want are updates to when the wbsite will be up. If the company they are paying can't even give a timeline of completion, then you hired the wrong group to piece your new site together.

    This. I went to the June meeting to find out what was going on and learned quite a bit.... some by what was said and some by what wasn't. I didn't feel like I was given a cold shoulder (NOBODY knew me) and was welcomed pretty well.

    FYI, DORBA people recently posted on the temporary forums that they are estimating the new site will be online in four more weeks.

    On the meet up site, there have been many people, myself included, offer to build and host a site, myself offered for 3 months no cost. I understand they already have a developer, but I don't know of any reputable developer that wouldn't cut ties because they weren't holding up their end of the deal. Then again, if it were a reputable developer, we'd probably already have a site up and running. As for the people at RCP, they've been nothing but awesome. I haven't branched out too much to others in DORBA though. I won't be a paying member with the false promise of a website that's so far overdue it's just gotten to a certain point of stupid.
