This Saturday: Oakhurst Cycling Club June Ride!

In this month's edition of the Oak Leaflet, ONA neighbor Aaron Latchaw writes:

"My wife (Jess) and I were talking among ourselves a few months ago about ways we could engage the community, our neighbors and stay active. This was something we had been discussing with Debby Stein/The Riverside Arts District about getting started in the area. We recalled the social rides we'd been on in the past around Fort Worth (Critical Mass, Night Riders) and pitched the idea on the neighborhood site Nextdoor. The response was really positive and we even did a little voting and those interested decided on the name "Oakhurst Cycling Club".

We've since been on 2 rides and had a blast meeting our Oakhurst neighbors and exploring the river trail system. On our last ride, we had about 8 riders total.

Our next ride will be a leisurely 8-12 miles and we'll finish the ride at our neighborhood brewery, Martin House for their Saturday tour & tasting. The Martin House guys are very supportive of the cycling community, it's even rumored they let cyclist in a few minutes earlier than the standard crowd.

We are eager to see rides continue to grow, Fort Worth has made huge strides to nurture the cycling community. Hope to see you on 2 wheels soon!"

Note:  All rides leave from Riverside Park, 501 Oakhurst Scenic Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76111. Routes will be posted to Nextdoor and e-mailed to our OCC and ONA email lists.

Reminder: ONA Meeting Thursday Night!

Join us Thursday evening, June 12, to hear developer Peter Aberg of Dallas' Legacy Capital Company discuss his proposed new mixed-use residential and retail development for Oakhurst Scenic Drive, between Belknap and Race Streets.

Aberg proposes an "Austin hip" development featuring apartments, new restaurants (complementing existing establishments, e.g. the Smoke Pit), and other retail offerings.  The intent is to respect local character while taking advantage of the site's views of the Trinity River and downtown Fort Worth, as well as its proximity to the Six Points Urban Village.

See you Thursday!
