Welcome to "OLD DUDES on DIRT BIKES". The group was started by Ken Sanchez in September 2012 to help get some of us older dirt riders (dudes) together to ride the Sam Houston Nat'l forest rather than ride it alone.  He hadn't ridden in quite a few years so he was wanting to find other dirt riders that had the same desire for getting back into dirt bike riding. The first meetup was 6 dude riders with the same thought, ride the SHNF at our pace without having to race or ride alone and never have any drama doing it.

The group has grown since 2012, and with it comes many different riding styles and ages.  Our riders now vary from the early 30's to mid 70's, with many different riding abilities.  We have members that ride the SHNF trails, MX, trials, dual sports, and even a street ride occasionally. We encourage our members to post rides whenever and where ever, we encourage the members not to ride alone but find someone to ride with when they're going out, we encourage all members to wear safety equipment when they ride, we believe this group is for you and you should participate as much as you want and always ride safe, but should something happen, a member will be there to help you. We look out for each other on all our rides.  If you do become a member, always remember, it's YOUR group and you'll get out of it what you put into it.

We have become a helper of the Sam Houston National Forestry service, by this, we help manage and keep the multiuse trails cleaned and safe for all to ride by working with the forestry service in removing debris from the trails and cutting out fallen trees on the trails whenever possible. We schedule work days in the SHNF to do this periodically and encourage members to participate. We are none profit group, but we do take donations to keep the web site going and all donations collected will only be used to fund the continuation of this group on meetup, but you do not have to contribute to join or stay a member, it's strictly your choice. 

And again please note, were a Dude Only group (Guys-Male... outside of family camp outs and get together's).. 

Sorry Ladies... if you need a Gals Dirt Rider group, just let us know, we can help do a meetup for you too!

Thank for reviewing!!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
