Starting a thread for our weekend rides

And just like that a plan was hatched. And I volunteered to lead it...

I've been working on some sort of route for a few months now, maybe four or five. I had ridden all over the place looking for dirt roads. And had cataloged what I found. Then, one day, I found myself in possession of a GPS...

Scrolling through the software I realized that I could make one hell of a duel sport loop with the roads I had found. I finished it the night before the ride...

...and I SWEAR I really believed that it was only 40 or maybe 50% dirt.
