    Riding buddies in DFW?

    Hi all I am looking for some people to hit the trails with occasionally in the DFW area. I am not into anything too extreme just want to get to the point where I can ride most of the local trails confidently. My gf rides with me fairly often but I'm also looking for some people that are a little more adventrous. Also like to mention that i'm Christian.
    Thanks

    You're just down the way from me (Frisco).

    What trails have you ridden and enjoyed?

    Have you seen the DORBA web forums or the DORBA Facebook page?

    Yes I have joined the DORBA facebook page. I have ridden most of Erwin,all of LB Houston,All of Frisco,Arbor Hills,Harry Moss.Some of Rowlett. Just went over to Harry Moss this week and had a blast. There is one section that I didn't want to try while I was alone.Would have gone for it if there was someone else around.

    Nice! I still haven't ridden the newest loop at Frisco. With the rain we had today it may be a while longer.

    I'll send you a PM and we can arrange a time to ride.

    By the way, all of the DORBA trails have workdays where volunteers come out. It's a great way to help give back to your favorite trail and meet some damn nice people to go riding with.

    Ah, I saw that post. I'll make sure to mention it if I see anyone talking about downed trees. Usually if you just show up with a rake and/or loppers they're thrilled.

    Looking for a ride Saturday morning, Wednesday or Thursday evening next week as well. I'm a slower rider for now, if anyone wants to get together.

    Haven't ridden either one, and I'm slow, if you're up for showing me the ropes of the course, I wouldn't mind hitting either trail with you. I've been meaning to get out there so I can ride the trail myself at my own pace to familiarize myself with them, just haven't done so yet.

    I'm not that fast either. Would not mind at all showing you around. Will be out at either one around 8 am. Let me know if this works for you.
