Attention ride leaders, volunteers and participants - this is the official Rally Group Ride sign-up site:

Well, I held off signing up for group rides because I'm pretty low on the waitlist. Now there's no spots left on the int/adv rides... oh, well.

It's still pretty low odds that I'll get in. I certainly don't know the area well enough to lead anything...

Don't worry. There will be more rides posted up before the rally, plus othee groups will form up at the camp and make plans to ride.

If you get in show up, dont worry about the rides. I am planning to drive the 4x4 over hunter MT to tea Kettle.
Then take the scenic route back via Ubehebe, scotties etc with the end being pavement.

I know it isnt the traditional thing to do but if there are riders that want to follow a truck then there you are. Not like it would be hard to keep up with me and by bike hauling fees if needed are very reasonable.

Those who could not get into the group rides, go to page 1 and check out the names and their bikes.

Most likely the gs and big bike riders will stick together. Same with the small displacement thumpers. Don't be shy, circulate. The other purpose of this event is meet other riders. In a day or 2 you will see your compatibility and find your match....sounds like a dating service...

I know a lot of riders that are riding together now met here in the noobs rally.

Somewhere in here is a post with point to point distances, or distances from PSR. I just scanned the entire thread but must have missed it. Can someone please point if you know? I'm trying to get a loop distance and have not installed MapSource on my new computer. Thanks!

This is really what happens, since the posted rides may need to change (if we get snow or roads are closed) after we arrive at camp. It is even possible to join "full" rides sometimes, when people drop out or if the group splits in two due to additional interest.

I suggest loading up GPS files for the routes that you are interested in before heading out to DV, so you will have the main routes and can more easily follow whatever group you end up joining (or forming).

Dave, (DSM8) has links to GPS tracks on the first page:

Chloride/Beatty/Titus (easiest dirt for 1st time n00bs/beginners)

http://ridewithgps.com/routes/991234

Goler Wash/Mengel Pass (can be a bit more technical, but a good challenge for determined n00bs)

http://ridewithgps.com/routes/991136

Hunter Mountain - Lippincott (more technical due to Lippincott, but can be looped out via Ubehebe & Stovepipe for an easier, but longer ride)

http://ridewithgps.com/routes/991091

More groups will form around these rides (and others). If you have tracks pre-loaded, that will help keep folks headed in the same direction if the group gets spread out.
