Double Lake / BRC update: The new concessionaire has a permit to operate Double Lake Recreation Area, unfortunately, it is not valid until April 18th, so no riding at DL this weekend. We were holding off announcing in the hope that the Forest Service would let them in today, but alas, no. The new concessionaire has been very helpful keeping us informed and wants to let us in for day use immediately. Camping will have to wait till May 1st.
Meanwhile, the BRC is on track. The good news is that the race course is in great condition and ready to rock and roll, thanks to our band of volunteers lead by Jim Mackey. The trails beyond the race course are rideable, but need some TLC. We’ll get everything back to the DL we love so much pretty quickly. We’ll have two weekends of riding before the race weekend – I hope we get lots of wheels out there to celebrate the return of the best trail in Texas!
There is a work party tomorrow morning (Saturday 15 April). Meet at the park entrance by 0900. ... See MoreSee Less

Copied from Double Lake Page DL Workday on Sat (4/15) at 9am, meeting up at the FM2025 front gate. We enter and then lock ourselves in with limited opportunities to leave: Noon and 3pm. Main objective is to work on a section of the DL X-Over Tr below the spillway. There are plenty of pavers to be reset. Some boardwalk work to be done. And there is plenty of dirt fill work to do around exposed roots. All this work is required by the Forest Service as part of the reopening. So, bring shovels and wheelbarrows. Ride after working is okay, but no pre-ride freeloaders. If you enter, you work. ... See MoreSee Less

A little late on the notice, but I just heard of it. This is an opportunity to meet the Sam Houston Trails Coalition President in Houston. A few notes about the SHTC: GHORBA is a founding member of the SHTC - it grew out of our work to expand trails in the Sam Houston Naitonal Forest (SHNF) at Double Lake, and later Huntsville. The expansions at Double Lake and Huntsville have been sponsored and funded by GHORBA. GHORBA have plans for major expansion of trails in the SHNF, but we are currently in disagreement with the SHTC and the FS about the timeline and we cannot see any new trails in the SHNF in a generation under the current plan. Meanwhile, all bike trails in the SHNF have been closed in 2017, which is a pretty terrible situation. Please come and meet the SHTC at West End bikes tomorrow and hear what they have to say. ...
