Who wants to do it again? Here are the details for the 8th running of the ride. I've been on the first seven, let's do it again!

We'll run last year's route - I'm too stupid to figure out how to change 'em
Tracks are here....

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=674934

Start in St. Clair, MO like last year and run it same as the last couple years. See below for the Friday night Hotel info. Folks can leave their trucks there for the weekend if they are staying there on Friday night. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast in the morning to get you going.

Make sure you have someone to ride with that has a GPS....also Self sufficiency is the Key to Success....tubes, tools, GPS, Maps, snorkels, etc.....

Here's some historic info on the bridges:

2014 Ride http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=953846


Friday Night Hotel- May 1st
Budget Lodging
866 S I-44 Outer Road
St. Clair, MO
636-629-1000

Mention the ride when you make reservations.

Saturday Night Hotel - May 2nd
Best Western. Phone number is 573-336-4299
When you call them make sure you mention the ride to get the special $62 room rate. You can cancel 24 hours in advance if you can't make the ride.

For those that want to camp - here's the link http://www.layzday.com/

There is also a primitive camp spot as a waypoint in the file.

and ribs at the Elbow Inn .

Fuel Stops.....I would make sure you have a 130 mile range.

Sunday Try to stop at the Church Picnic in St. Anthony. If you leave about 8 am or so from the hotel....it works out to get there when they open at 11:00 am....Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, all the fixins, and Pie. Maybe even a train ride! Definitely worth the stop for some good eats

Let's see who's in. I'll keep track.

Hey Bill. It's the 8th running of the SBR, so it would be the 7th annual. Yeah that's right.....stupid as it sounds.

Everyone have a good time, I can't be there, but ya' all stop by MTRA's club grounds on Sat. as you go by, I'll be there helping with the Hare Scrambles.

Check page 24 Sat and page 26 0r 27 (Sunday) of the 2012 ride (see link above) Dirtfarmer put together some nice maps, which I have found useful to print and carry, especially if you get behind for some reason on either day.
