This has turned into quite and event. And just think, I asked Jake if he wants to go ride on Sunday. Looks like a pretty good turnout. See you guys on Sunday. Guitarhack, be safe my man. And you too K Woo. Im excited to see your Tenre get dirty. I know tons of roads but they are North of the Lake.

Since this scouting group looks to be almost as big as a regular RDV ride group I decided to be all responsible an shit and program my gps for it.




Didn't include every turn and the total distance is about 1/2 an RDV route.

Is it any wonder riders get dropped at a turn when the average is one every mile and a half!?
(of course there's long sections and zig-zags where you make several turn in a very short distance)



This will be a good time to see if I can use Mike's 'relay system'...so if any of y'all feel like you'd like to be riding faster than I am tomorrow just volunteer to run the relay between the faster and slower riders and you'll have a wide open road to open it up.

We can talk more about how that works tomorrow or see Mike's post on page one.

I'm the klr sidewinderx is referring to. I'm his brother and will be slower on the dirt sections probably. tires on right now are getting square from commuting. on the other hand i would say he would do great as a relay.

ahh the memories of growing up with little bro......

Eeeek! I rode up Laurel Springs way today...damn it got cold about 1/2 way up the mountain. I stopped at the BBQ joint at 113 and 221, warmed up a lil'. It reminded me of my undergrad days in Boone. I tried so hard to convince others just how much colder it could be "up there" but everyone just nodded and had a look of, "Yeah...yeah...yeahm" until they experienced it. Sunny and temperate at my house...cold and spitting snow up the mountain...YUK! The highlight of the day was Peach Bottom road (with a name like "Peach Bottom" , would you really expect anything less?????!?!?) A close second was a nice section of dirt road, that I am not sure will be available at RDV, but, damn, it was sweet.


This is all to say that I doubt I will freeze my teeeats off tomorrow...they are still sore from being so cold all day today. (Everyone coming in and out of the restaurant had on hats/toboggans and large winter coats...all asked why I was riding today).

Regardless, If I am at the meet up point at the meet up time, awesome. If not, please do not wait for me.

Sidewinder - I will text you if I am on my way.

Blessings and a fun (and warm) ride all!!
