    Meet at the Mile Marker 11.5 Boulders OHV staging area near the pit toilets at 8:00 AM, ready to ride at 8:30 AM.

    Expect lots of single track, with some extremely difficult, crazy steep, high altitude off camber sections. If you're not a seasoned single track veteran, this isn't the ride for you.

    Lunch at the Wild Horse Saloon afterwards.

    I'm interested. Can I get some details? I googled boulders, it said one mile north of the highway at milepost 11.5 is that where you'll be?
    How high altitude are we talking?
    What kind of mileage or fuel range is likely?
    Is it all trail or are there road miles involved?

    the details are in the ride.
    like he said,.....if you are a seasoned veteran.......
    show up with everything topped off, an opern mind,
    and you'll have a ball.
    don't worry about the alt.
    these guys will treat you right.
    have fun.............

    In an attempt to give a comparison from past historical events.


    1800's---TRAIL OF TEARS-----thousands died

    1900's---BATAN DEATH MARCH----thousands died

    That is the Boulders OHV where we stage at. There is a sign on the gravel road once you have turned off Hwy 74.

    Please check this thread before leaving your home Saturday morning for cancellation information.

    If the forecast looks bad, the ride will be cancelled. I hate riding in the rain. I hate riding in the cold. I really hate riding in the rain and cold!

    I will post up either way between 6:00 and 6:15 AM.
