Event Calendar from the BMWDFW Club

A member of the BMWDFW club just sent this to me. It has a lot of events in the region.

Greetings, there’s not much added to the calendar since last month! There’s a ride planned for east Texas this Saturday, organized by Bo Griffin and the 2nd Sunday breakfast at Mary’ Brazos Café in Tin Top is this Sunday. Directions to Tin Top are provided at the end of this message. Also, the BMWDFW club meeting is this next Tuesday evening featuring a packing system for motorcycle camping; specifically the Helen 2 Wheels packing system. Next Thursday is Bike Nite at Eurosport Cycles in Fort Worth. July is the month for the “big” rallies with the BMWMOA International Rally next weekend in Wisconsin and the Top O the Rockies Rally in Paonia, Colorado.



Ride safe, we hope you’re able to attend some of these events.

Mike Moon, EventMeister, BMWDFW, LSBMWR

DIRECTIONS TO TIN TOP

Tin Top is at the junction of Tin Top Road, FM 1884, and FM 2580 (Bethel Road), about halfway between Weatherford and Thorp Spring. Four ways to get there are described.

From the north,

1) I-20, exit 408, at FM 51, TX171, Tin Top, Bethel Road. Continue on the access road to Tin Top Road. Head south on Tin Top road for approx 11 miles. Mary's Cafe is on the right side of the road just before the Conoco station.

2) I-20, exit 408 at FM 51, TX 171, Tin Top Road exit. At the light, turn left, head south on FM 51/TX 171. FM 51 splits off from TX 171. Continue south on FM 51 for 3 miles to FM 1708. Continue on FM 1708, which ends at Tin Top Road. Continue south on Tin Top Road to Mary's Cafe.

3) I-20, exit 408 at FM 51, TX171, Tin Top, Bethel Road. Go thru the light, stay on the access road past Tin Top Road to FM 1884/Bethel Road. Head south on FM 1884/ Bethel Road for about 13 miles. FM 1884 ends at the community of Tin Top, next to Mary's Café. This route is more scenic with less traffic and more twisty roads.

From the south,

4) From Granbury, proceed west on FM 4 for 3 miles to Thorp Spring. Head north on FM 2580 for 12 miles. You'll cross the BrazosRiver about a mile before Tin Top. This is the most scenic route!
