Ridge Riders Dual Sport/adv ride - June 13,14

Saw this on ECEA web site. Reposting.

Know some of the guys in the club and they don't suck. Also ORC is a great dirtbike shop, Mike and Jen are awesome.
Should be fun.

Ridge Riders Motorcycle club is organizing a 2 day Adventure Bike/Dual Sport ride for June 13 & 14, the same weekend as our Enduro. The details are still being worked out, but here is what I know so far.

The ride will begin on Saturday, June 13 at ORC Racingís shop in Portland, PA. From there you will ride approximately 230 miles to the RRMC club property in Deposit, NY, where you will camp and spend the night. The route will consist of scenic, twisty blacktop, graded dirt roads, and a few unmaintained roads (with bypasses). Once you arrive at the RRMC property in Deposit, everyone will set up camp and hang out. If you havenít had enough riding, we can provide you with a nice route in that area.

On Sunday you will have a few choices. You will be able to do any of the following or any combination of them you choose.

- We will give everyone a route back to Portland PA, similar in time and distance to the route taken to Deposit, with bypasses and places to bail early if you donít want to go all the way back to Portland.

- We will also give everyone a scenic route around the area of Deposit, NY and the Cannonsville Reservoir, if you want to leave your gear behind, and spend the day in the Catskillís. We will also provide a more direct route home along with places to bail out if you donít want to go all the way back to Portland.

- You can enter the Enduro in the Dual Sport Class (not recommended for big bikes). If there is enough interest, we may even offer a group trail ride through the endure course that would be led by some of our club members, for anyone whoís never done an enduro, and wants to see what itís like.

- You can hang out and watch the enduro. We will provide you with directions to a few spots to watch. We could also put you to work at a check point if you want to really see how it all works.

I know some food will be provided, but the details are still being worked out. Cost will probably be around $50-$75 for the weekend, but that depends on what happens with the food, and that doesnít include the cost of entering the enduro. All of this should be finalized in the next week or two.

Please spread the word. If you are interested at all, please post. Thanks.

I think it's great that we have two clubs holding events in the area (the other is Bear Creek Sportman in Hancock). If you are attending this event and need a scenic route from the north or the west you can probably find something here.
