Meeting Minutes – August

James Munnerlyn gave us a good recap from the camping trip last weekend. Thanks James!

Trail maintenance will be this coming Saturday at 8 a.m..

BTU mowed the levee finally, so you don’t have to ride through tunnels of tall grass, but it does mean the trail is covered in dead grass. We will put a couple people on rake duty to clear the trails off.

Sunset strip needs mowed.

Blair Witch is a bit overgrown in parts.

Justin F is trying to figure out a way to carry some paint on the trails to freshen up the original signs.

Check out Camp Eagle Classic Mt Bike Festival over labor day weekend for a good time! As usual, email the group or comment here if you’re interested in attending and looking for someone to carpool/camp with!

There is a group of us going to Rocky Hill Ranch Sunday morning – Meeting location (and exact time) will be determined by who all is planning to go/drive. Email the group or leave a comment here if you are interested.

The trails on the left side of Lake Bryan are OFF LIMITS for the next SIX WEEKS!! Work is being done on the levee and we have been asked to keep off the trails on that side during this time. Please be courteous to the requests of BTU and stay off the trails over there.



GHORBA Waco Group Ride

Our friends at GHORBA hosted a group ride at the Cameron Park trails in Waco. A few BVMBAers (Mike, Kim, Ali, JP, and Victor) took them up on the offer and went for Quite the adventure.

For starters, the predicted weather was mid 50s. The actual temperature at 8am was something closer to 40. Brrr. Fortunately it warmed up once we were in the woods.

Riders were broken up into groups and the BVMBAers were carted around by a couple trail experts. They showed us all of the “black diamond” sections in directions that were meant to make our legs burn and our knuckles whiten. They even showed us a few super secret spots. Much thanks goes out to those guys for being patient with the group which was haunted by flats, skewers coming undone, and Kim’s sarcasm.

It was a great day, and we couldn’t have been more happy to have eaten the goodies provided by GHORBA.

Rubber side down!


Now, if JP and Victor could stop getting flat tires……….
