    Well its that time again folks, lets do it again! Our 4th annual year.

    Remember this is a follow the leader kinda ride, I have no maps to hand out or anything like that. We wait for the guy behind you so there's no lost bike's out there. There can be alot of waiting, you just never know.

    This is an unorganized ride, Ride at your own Risk!

    MAINE does require ATV REGISTRATION to ride Maine trails! Just sayin
    I do not care if you are registered or not, Ride at Your Own Risk!
    But remember to come with a full tank of gas!
    Plenty of gas stops but not within the first 40 miles or so

    Date Saturday MAY 31st, Rain date Sunday June 1st.

    A little late this year but it's the best we could do with the trails opening late because of the deep snow pac and other rides and holiday's.

    Meet at Noble High School, Rt 9 North Berwick Maine

    Kick stands up at 9am,
    First leg to West Newfield is about 45miles, about 2.5 hrs give or take. Expect everything on this part, from single track, tight and technical, mudd, water, its all there, rocky river crossings, Not as bad as it sounds but its not gonna be easy either. Leave Panniers Home!!

    Here is a map of the intended route.

    Lunch again at my house in West Newfeild, about half way to Fryeburg. I will supply food and drink like the previous year's.

    Second leg from West Newfiled to Fryeburg is about 50 miles. This part will be much easier with some fantastic dirt roads with great scenic veiws.
    Here is the map of the second leg,there will be a re-route not shown on this map for Big Bikes and our group, Paul Hill rd in Eaton NH has a hard hill climb, Big bikes (anything over 650 or little experience) need to turn left at the end of Youngs Hill Rd onto Towle Hill rd, follow to end turn right onto rt153 and follow to you come back on trac around crystal lake

    The third leg is the Quickest route from Fryeburg back to Noble, there will be some dirt roads and some really cool twisty back roads, so the ride back wont be boring but easy.
    Here's the third leg map

    Please keep in mind these Routes may change.

    Well if it does't rain the day before you'll be allset, most of the spring mudd should be all dried up by then. No muddy hills to climb, if there is any mud its on flat ground and not deep.

    Hmm this might be a nice way to let the XR stretch it's legs. Will have to see how things play out leading up.
