[QUOTE=error cooled;16757907]Any one up for a ride this weekend? I am open Sat Sun or Mon. Maybe a trip a lil West of the traditional LoCo/Fauquier routes? Still a bunch of gravel roads and beautiful scenery through Hume. See the red route.... one I have run before but will change a bit.


"IN"

The monkey on my back now craves dust. Put me down.

I have been in Alabama all week. May be an issue with the wife if I take off all day Sunday or Monday. I will keep this on the radar though. Meet up time and location?

good for Monday and...

OK I'm good for the Red route on Monday.
But how about Saturday too??.
I 'm thinking a little cruise down Fort Valley Rd.,out southwest of Front Royal.
Maybe not too much dirt but I wanna get to know the neighborhood.
Send a note if you wanna join up near Front Royal.

Guys - looks like Monday is best for everyone here.

Unfortunatly my good friend and riding buddy is only available on Sunday so I will need to follow his schedule. I will share the route with Porcupine if he is interested in leading a ride on Monday.


The route I have planned is 60% gravel and 95 miles long --- all fun and scenic. Here it is on paper:

Road tires

Gents,

I have a feeling I may be using this term loosely.........I have road tires on my DL1000, with the ride possibly being 60% gravel and a heavier bike, is this still doable or would I need off-roads?

Feel free to make fun of the newbie!!

Good ! Monday 10 AM

EC,
Monday 10 AM
Meet at Upperville, Hunters Head Tavern
Map Translations are underway and I will try to post version for popular consumption.
I'll check on the Apple House for lunch, being Labor Day it might be PB&J's from a bag.
(theres' a story there but I'll save that for another time.)

Forecast calls for a mixed bag and so it goes.
10 AM is my pick but if 9 or 11 is better, shout it out.
an early start might beat the weather.
OK thats my current plan. Comments and questions are welcomed but might be ignored.
Let me know if your coming.
