    Bear in mind this is not etched in stone but it looks like the 2013 ISDT Reunion Ride will be returning to it's hallowed ground of Dalton, MA, more specifically, Hoellerich's Farm in Cheshire, MA, the site of the 1973 Reunion Ride. A tentative date of the last weekend in August looks to be when it will take place. This would be fitting as it would coincide with it's 40th anniversary in the Berkshires.

    Any idea the proposed dates for this???? A couple guys were talking about it at the local club (Stateline) meeting tonight. They are trying to get special permission from the state to use the original trails again.

    Missed the 30 year and really don't want to miss this one.

    My best freind and 2 time ISDE rider Bruce Kenny still has that blue/white striped ISDE helmet sitting in his garage. I think a mouse uses it now for quaters :lol3

    August 24 & 25.

    There is also a rumor of an AMA sanctioned Dual Sport Ride on Thursday preceding the Reunion Ride for those arriving early and want to make it a 4 day using Friday to hang out with friends.

    That's where it is! I was fortunate enough to run it in 03, it was cool. Old British bikes that looked like they should be in a museum out in the woods, the cops stopping traffic on the highways so we could ride down the main drag while people waved to us from their porches, the grass track, etc.

    The AMA dual sport ride on Thurs is our club DS ride. It's not official yet, but it looks like it will happen. We'll shrink the combined 350ish mile routes from our 2 day ride and make a great one day loop. It should turn out to be a "best of" all of the really good stuff. I hope to ride the new route with legends from our sport. It will be awesome. :D

    I have three choices to ride there, all not running yet...but I am working on it. Best choice for a mid-fifties guy with a sore knee? H.

    I was at the 30th helping the Pondfinders and it was one of the best biking weekends I've ever had.
    And I didn't even have my bike with me!!!!
    October weather was perfect for camping, all weekend the weather was mint. Right Rich?
    Worked a couple of checks and best of all was the Grass Track!!!!
    Please schedule it for October again. Either way count on some BTRers to help out.
