11:00 is okay by me but I have to be home around 3:30. Alan and Tim are coming too so advise if thet will work for you or not, so they can plan.

OR- you could ride around and meet back at Danville at 11am.


Notice: I am not a travel planner, I just play one on the internet.

We finished the milage today. Looks to be between 85 and 90 miles. These are not the Milk Run enduro trails. They are mostly back roads and unmaintained township roads. There are a couple of enduro trails that should be very ridable, even after all the rain.
There will be a bonfire/bench racing session Saturday evening, and breakfast Sunday morning.

Adventure guys will have bypasses around all the stuff we expect to turn nasty.
Smaller bikes will have no problems.
We are hoping that with all the hurdles we've had to clear this year, that this will be successful and turn into an annual event.
Come on down and join us tomorrow night and Sunday Oct. 23. KB

In, but a question - is this gonna be "big bike" friendly? I'm lookin' for the gravel road/easy trail day like we did a couple years ago up there. If you plan to do mud, water crossings and other rough stuff, say so and I'll look for a different plan. I don't want to hold you guys up or ruin your plan. It's bad enough I asked for a later start.

Later,
M

just remember what Frank Zappa said:

Keep it greasy so it'll go down easy!

I think he might have been singing about something else though...

I had my first get-off today while exploring a trail along some rail road tracks. As the saying goes, everything was going along just fine until I ran out of talent. I hit a spot along a slope and one of my tires wandered off the trail or the gravel broke loose. The bike toppled downhill and me with on it. Luckily (and I mean that sarcastically), I didn't fall far because my right leg was pinned between the bike and a log.

After extracting myself and taking pictures, I got the bike upright. It was a struggle since I had to start from below horizontal and I'm glad I didn't have a bigger bike. After getting it up, I walked it back up to the trail while feathering the clutch and then rode out.

Nothing is broke, but there's a little swelling on the left side of my shin (still riding in jeans since I can't afford gear). The timing sucks because I have to drive to Quantico, Virginia next Sunday to run a 3K. I'll spend the rest of the day on the couch with a bag of frozen corn, some boo-boo candy (ibuprofen), and some shit my wife uses after Army Combatives, called dit da jow.

Since I was alone, I took my own pics:





Glad that's finally out of the way.

Yeah, rail road gravel can be hard because it is so loose and doesn't pack down. There are better rail road beds to play on than those too. Maybe I'll do another tour de Flatsville in Plain City this fall. Not a long ride really but it's the best we have around here.

Hope your "ouch" heals up fast.
