Proposed Route

Thinking about something different from the last two years...

See http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2209672 for a possible route for this year's tour.



Starts and ends in Springfield, covers about 1300 miles and hits the following highlights:
  • Painted Hils
  • Sumpter Gold Dredge
  • Succor Creek and Leslie Gulch
  • Silver City, Id. (why not?)
  • Cliffs/Pillars of Rome
  • Pete French Round Barn
The last one depends on availability of fuel in Frenchglen -- any news on that from anyone?

We can also swing by at least three of those airports, Rideabout. And don't forget the hot springs, including one near the bottom of Leslie Gulch. It's about four miles upstream, is usally accessible only by boat, but if the resevoir is low enough to ride along the shore...

I've tried to build in some variety and some stretches of gravel each day.
As usual, all this is not set in stone -- just one set of options. Other ideas?
