FLYING P CYCLE RANCH

Average Rating:    (3.86 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

1200 Acres of single track, open space and fire road trails thru creek bottom land, post oak woods, limestone breaks and sand. I've been riding here since 1969 (I was 11) and it is the best kept secret in the Metroplex for Mountain Bikes. Numerous trail loops and 3 Motocross tracks (all the tracks are one way). Mr. Pope started letting people ride motorcycles on his land in 1968. He has no problem allowing mountain bikes. The motorcyclists are always amazed everytime they see me and they treat all bikers with respect. It is best to give the right of way to the motorcylisist because they CANNOT HEAR YOU! The south end of the Ranch is made up of clay/black gumbo dirt (great anytime but when wet) with many single track trails and the beaver pond. The middle part of the Ranch has the most grade breaks. It also makes up the largest area of the ranch. The soil is a mostly limestone/clay mix with excellent drainage qualities. Great views of the surrounding Parker County area. The north end is a clay/sand mix with a really nice single track that borders from nortwest to norteast. However, if conditions are hot and dry the sand is a beast! Its like white ashes. Bad ass stuff! Fees are $8/day/person or whatever Mr. Pope feels like charging. There is a fee for camping if he remembers. There are no facilities (i.e. water, bathroom or showers) so be prepared. Take out what you bring in - Mr. Pope is a WWII vet and he does the best he can maintaining the place. Vicious Cycles is located on US180 in Weatherford if you have any problems. I love the Flying P not only because it has been such a part of my past but because there are so many different kinds of rides you can have out there. Check it out! Adios.

From the Metroplex go west on I30. Mysteriously, at the Parker/Tarrant County line I30 becomes I20. Continue west on I20 to Exit 408 (FM51/171). Turn right (North) into the town of Weatherford. Keep on driving past the Courthouse square on 51/171 approx. 1.5 miles to FM920. Turn left (West) along 920 for 1 mile. Turn right (North) on FM2421. You'll see a sign on your right for the cycle ranch. Drive for 5.5 miles on 2421 till Sweet Springs Road. Turn right (East) and drive until you deadend into the gates of the Flying P Cycle Ranch

Yes, this place has closed. The owner was sick and finally passed away. BUT, a new track opens on the same road just between the track on hwy 51 and Flying P. It opens April 1st weekend. Opening weeked is free to all. Camping, kids play area and lots of riding trails for all levels! Should be fun.
