It was a great ride, 11 of us rode from Bernalillo north through the pueblos to Cochiti Lake, took the Dome road over to the Valles Caldera National Preserve, over to Cuba, NM for lunch, then back down through the Jemez to Rio Rancho & Albuquerque. (just over 200 miles)

Here's a link to the ride report with video/pics:

(We'll definitely be riding through the north section of the Jemez mountains from the Buffalo Thunder resort when we start the Quien Sabe ride)--

Another pre-ride is slated for next Sunday, May 19th.....

Rocky Mountain Fires......

Mighty Rendezvous Crew!

I have received a handful of PM's and emails, expressing concerns about the fires that are burning in the Rocky Mountains and if they will affect the 2013 RMAR Events and Rides.

While I cannot say, without a shadow of a doubt, we will not be affected, I can say that we are agile.

Remember back in 2011, when the 2nd Annual RMAR Rendezvous was scheduled for Sipapu, New Mexico and the fire restrictions forced us to move the event, only 24 days prior. Yes, it was a HUGE effort, but we pulled it off and ended up with a phenomenal Rendezvous, with about 150 riders attending, based out of Saguache, Colorado.

But, if there were an area that I would express little concern over, it is Silverton, Colorado in the San Juan Mountains. It is more likely that we will have to deal with afternoon showers and some wetness.....rather than fires, by the 3rd week in July. The monsoon will have kicked into full force.

You should also know that we have great flexibility in the Point to Point Routes, such as the QS600. In the spirit of true adventure riding, we will go where we can and detour when we must. PtP routes are usually finalized within 2 weeks of the ride, adjusting for current conditions.

So what am I saying.....??? I am saying, don't worry, as we have it covered and we will keep you updated.

Just to update, we'll be posting up the tentative ride route in the next week; from the start point at Buffalo Thunder, will probably head west into the Jemez, then north towards Chama, over into the Carson NF thru the Sipapu area, then on over to Taos area, up into southern Colorado, then back down thru the Carson & Santa Fe NFs........

Dirt Dad was up in the Chama area last week, and I need to catch up with him for some more ride route planning, will update soon---

oh yeah.....John,

I started thinking about what you said concerning the Cam1k and some cold nights. Being that I'm a Desert Rat from AZ, I decided that I better get a good sleeping bag.

Came across a great deal on a Kelty Coromell 0* sleeping bag with 550 Down fill. This should do the trick.....I hope.




I'll probably bring a silk liner, just in case, just to be extra snuggly....

Yeah, I have a marmot down bag.......and a trick I learned from my Dad......double over and sew up a queen sized sheet to stuff inside. Awesome as long as the bag doesn't get wet.


We just had another registration for this ride......and I am told that Wolfman and Kawasaki are sending riders. It is shaping up to have really good attendance.


Still room left......

Registration

OK, made my donation. Am I now registered for the ride or is there a step 2 that I didn't see on the page?
