Welcome to "OLD DUDES on DIRT BIKES"

The group was started by Ken Sanchez in September 2012 to help get us  "older" dirt riders (Dudes) together and ride the Sam Houston Nat'l forest in groups rather than riding alone.  He hadn't ridden in quite a few years (30+) so he was wanting to find other dirt riders who shared the same passion for getting back into dirt bike riding. The first meetup was 6 dude riders (Larry included) with the same thought, to 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 mid 20's to mid 70's, with many different riding abilities.  We have members that ride the SHNF trails, MX, trials, dual sports, and even an occasional street ride. We encourage our members to post rides whenever and wherever, we also encourage the members not to ride alone but find someone to ride with when heading out. And we encourage all members to wear safety equipment when they ride (old bones heal slowly). 

We are proud to support our Sam Houston National Forest by way of the Sam Houston Trails Coalition  . We encourage all members to join and support the Coalition.  This group works hard to keep the SHNF (our key riding resource north of Houston) opened and ever growing... Your support is both needed and greatly appreciated.  Do visit and sign up.

 We as "Old Dudes on Dirt Bikes" help keep the multiuse trails cleaned and safe for all to ride.  This is fulfilled by working in removing debris from the trails, cutting out fallen trees and adopting sections of the trails for volunteers to maintain. We occasionally schedule quarterly group work days in the SHNF and encourage all members to come out and participate. We have only one of the few National Forests in the United States where Multi Use Trails (Dirt Bikes) are allowed to ride.  Your help is truly needed and appreciated in keeping OUR forest healthy, safe, groomed, maintained and ride ready for you and future generations to enjoy. 

We are non profit group, but we do take donations to keep the website going and all donations collected will only be used to fund the continuation of this group on meetup (website costs), but you do not have to contribute to join or stay a member, it's strictly your choice. 

If you believe this group is for you, we encourage you to participate as much as you want and always ride safe. If something were to happen to you on a group ride, rest assured that a member will be there to help you. We look out for each other.  If you do become a member, always remember that this is a WE/YOUR group and what you put into it is what you'll get out of it .
