Moving back to Fort Worth
I am moving back to my beautiful and ever changing hometown of Fort Worth. I'm just putting out the feelers in anticipation of my return in a few weeks and to see how the riding scene is in town. Any info you got is appreciated.

I spent the last 7 years in Paris, France (a little further east than the one in east Texas), the last four of those working as a bike messenger. I am excited about getting back to town and being able to ride without a backpack and walkie-talkie! My dad has been riding for a long time in Fort Worth and rides a lot. If you ever ride along the Trinity our out in Aledo you might have a come across a super friendly guy in his 60s, with funny cycling jerseys, a US Postal edition Trek and never lacking a kind word and smile.

Are there any fast and regularly scheduled group rides?
Would it be problem joining group rides on a track bike assuming that I put on the brakes? for right now I am road bike less, but the track bike is legit (custom build, no fluorescent colors and I refuse to call it a fixie ;)

Anybody have any info about the Frisco Superdrome and/or make the trip out there from Fort Worth? (ill pitch in for gas money)

Anybody got a decent road bike for sale? Ideally 54, carbon and standard chain set.
Track bike parts for Sale?

Looking forward to hearing from y'all

Welcome back to Texas. You can find a lot of information about the biking scene at the various club websites. One I check is the Fort Worth Bicycling Association. You can also catch up on Texas bicycling news, event and experiences at

Look for the guys and gals in the Manly Bulge Bicycle Club (MBBC) jerseys.
Best group of fun loving, hard riding cyclists in the area.
They have a facebook page for more info, but I know they ride several times a week.
