We are a fun 2 part group. Fitness buddies that want to be social too! So we combined what we like doing, riding the bike trails around Dallas/Fort Worth and doing pub crawls with our friends on special occasions. We are not professional road racers or mountain bikers. Instead we are a group of 40+ year olds that just want to have fun and enjoy life to it's fullest. We welcome all ages, but prefer 40 to 70 year olds that feel like they're 30 again.  We also mountain bike, destination travel, do triathlon's, swim, hike, kayak, camp and more.

Our rides will be around the DFW area on all types of paved trail roads and lake roads. Typically, the organized rides will be an hour or two, depends on the group; and the pace is leisurely to moderate. If you are a racer, you may get bored because we are a social cycling group that may enjoy talking and laughing as we ride together.  We are always looking for people to schedule rides in McKinney, Plano, Fort Worth, Irving, Arlington, Garland, Dallas, Grapevine, and Wylie.

The other activities will be purely social events like pub crawls on McKinney Ave, Knox/Henderson and Greenville Ave. We may even do a drink or 2 after our rides if you are up to it. We will try to keep the group active with 2 or 3 meetups each week. If you apply to join, we just ask that you participate at least once a month and volunteer occasionally to plan the rides.  We are also looking for planners for bowling, movies, concerts, and trips.

This is for singles, couples and married persons that just want to meet new friends that have something in common through cycling and social events.

While this is an adult Meetup and many of our events are strictly for adults, your teenagers are welcome on this ride, if you believe they can keep up and be respectful of our  members and policies. Most of our events end at a bar or restaurant, so please take that into consideration when bringing pre-teens or young children to an event. We ask that you respect everyone's limited "Adult" social time when you're considering bringing your pre-teens or young children to one of these social events.

We have grown this group with a dedicated purpose of inclusion and friendly adult socialization opportunities. We are very excited to meet everyone and want you to feel like this is a fun group that you want to do things with over time. So join now and we look forward to sharing some fun times with you.

Ride Pace: based on 1 lap around the outer loop of white rock lake with no stops:

    Beginner/trail ride (8-10 Mph pace): 1 lap will take you an 65 minutes

    Intermediate/social (12 mph pace): 1 Lap in 50 minutes

    Advanced/cardio (15 Mph pace): 1 lap in 40 minutes

    Racer (18 MPH pace): 1 lap in 33 minutes

Distance rides / training rides: You should be able to do at least 2 hours on a bike with a few rest stops before you consider these type of rides

Profile Photos: We are foremost a social group and with over 800 members, it is impossible for everyone to know everyone else. Please make sure your membership profile picture accurately represents your current look so those of us with aging memories can use your photo as a cheat sheet to put together names and faces, both before and during the events. Also, if we lose you at White Rock Lake, off the Sylvan Street Bridge, or next year in Italy, we'd like to have a representative photo to show the local authorities and the search parties (this is not the kind of party we want).

While puppies, armadillos, kids, groups, and flowers are cute, unless you actually look like a puppy...

Below is a quick quiz to illustrate why we need a good profile picture. Out of our current members' profile photos, which person would you recognize if they were standing next to you?


Rides: If you know of some good rides, runs, hikes, camping, bowling, or other please make suggestions.  We plan to ride areas near our members.

Please check out the Polls and Discussions, so we can fine tune our trail selections and ride times.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
