Join us for a leisurely bike ride on the Lake Mineral Wells Trailway.  We will meet at the Weatherford Trailhead and be ready to ride at 9 AM.  The Weatherford Trailhead is approximately 35 miles from Fort Worth and is about a 45-minute drive.  It is located off of FM 920 (Peaster Hwy.) northwest of downtown Weatherford.  When you get on FM 920, look for the signs for the Trailhead and Cartwright Park and turn left.  There is a $7 fee to use the Trailway, which is also good for Lake Mineral Wells State Park. We plan to ride west on the Trailway towards Garner (10.85 miles) at a leisurely pace and turn around before we get pooped.  You should bring plenty of water as it will probably be hot, and bike helmets are mandatory.  Liability waivers are required.  The Trailway is crushed limestone on the easy grade of an old railroad bed.  Large bike tires are preferred, but road bikes with smaller tires are suitable with caution for sandy and loose gravel areas.  We will return to the Weatherford Trailhead and find a good place for lunch or some liquid refreshments.

This is an informal and interactive class on urban biking. Christina Jones, a longtime bike courier and bicycle advocate, will share the lessons she’s learned from her many years of experience riding the streets of Dallas. Topics covered will include: traffic laws and the rights of people on bikes; how to control traffic by taking the lane; situational awareness and reacting to common situations; what makes a bike-friendly route; and a question and answer session. Bring your snacks, drinks and questions. Free. Info: 214-670-7962.
