Thumb Yosemite Dual Sport Adventure, September 27th & 28th - RIDE YOSEMITE!

NEW ROUTES! NEW DESTINATIONS!

September 27th & 28th, 2014 - Buck Meadows, CA

This event is limited to 150 participants!!! To see how many tickets are left click: https://2014ydsa.eventbrite.com

Last year this event was cancelled due to the "Rim Fire" in Yosemite. As a result we now have new routes and new destinations!

Held at the gateway to Yosemite National Park, this two day, GPS based, dual sport ride includes all the scenic & historic destinations in and around Yosemite that you would expect.

Paved and unpaved roads give you almost 100 miles of fun each day! Lunch, sweep riders, chase truck provided each day. FUN BBQ on Saturday night raises money for charities and over $9,000.00 in prizes ensures that everyone wins something!

Event operated under permit from the Stanislaus National Forest.

Bike Goes Off Cliff!

Here is a review from the September event...
==========================
Trees..... Trees..............TREES....... and bushes...
I am a desert guy from San Diego, and have never rode an area with so many trees around you. The one time i did crash was because we were heading east bound, going down a tree covered trail, and it was well shaded (not dark but you could see the headlight) and all the sudden there was a brief clearing for about 3-5 seconds and my eye didn’t adjust in time, so while making the easy turn i took my spill.

The route was well picked out. Not to challenging, but did take a little work to stay on the road. Lawrence had a mid-sweep and a last/final/tail sweep truck (really cool and outgoing family he has!!). Lunch at the casino was a good idea, but it filled up fast! The casino was so not ready for such a big crowd! The casino food was delicious and filling. That was a good move to plan on lunch there.

Other than the sun surprise, I had an amazing time. I went to the event not knowing anybody, made quick friends from people ALL around this state, great to just sit down and talk shop, talk trash, and be a hard-ass while nobody takes it to heart. It really reminded of the same crowd with the LA-B-V.

My overall experience:
I VERY much loved this ride, I have every intention of signing back up either in May if I can afford it, or in September again. I signed up late so I didn't have a motel room; the cabins were well out of my price range, so I went to a camp site and snuggled with nature, for free. The weather was nice, a little cool in the morning but, warmed up in the afternoon. I would call it a miniaturized version of the LA-B-V. It had fewer miles, fewer riders. But very well planned and organized. I was happy I went, sad I had to leave. As always, I wanted to have just a few more miles added to the end of the day because it was such a great day of riding I didn’t want it to end. Oh! And the food at the BBQ made me feel even better about the whole thing. It was $30 at the door, but it was all to charity and worked by volunteers, and after the meal it made me feel all warm inside about giving to others by eating someone else food.

Saturday:
Fun route
Good lunch location(casino)
Great scenery Memorable people
Fun filled BBQ

Sunday:
A nice lightly challenging route
Also a great location for lunch(at the base of El Capitan)
Stories, stories, stories

And Julie, I do have pics... On my Go-Pro, so I will have to post them tomorrow while at work. But I have Pics!!
