WHAT:1st annual Dirtbags Dual Sport Camping Trip. WHEN: April 12th - 13th WHO: All are welcome. We reserve the right to refuse you a map if you are a douchebag though. There are going to be a variety of bikes on this ride already, from a DR200 to an F800GS. Some bits will be technical and muddy but should be passable by most adv bikes. WHERE: Route to be distributed on the day, but generally will be an all-dirt/gravel route from Scappoose, past Timber and down to the Salmonberry river where camping will commence. Saturday, April 12: * meet at The Roxy at 8:30am for grub, map distribution, etc. * roll from Roxy ~9:30, headed for Scappoose, meet up at JP West / Veterans Park for stragglers who didn't make breakfast * leave Scappoose at 10:30am * ride the route. Eat something somewhere when hungry * arrive at campsite in the afternoon. Setup camp. * dick around in the area. In the vicinity of the camping site are hill climbs, old RR tunnels, single track, the Salmonberry river, and fantastic views. See this highlight reel from the camping area. * eat/drink/sleep/make merry Sunday, April 13th * assess the damage and willingness to continue the beating * Sunday ride details as they develop. Options include: - Nicolai Mountain - ride to the coast and up the beach to the wreck of the Peter Iredale - south to Browns camp - just dick around ripping up and down logging roads - ride/hike to the massive trestle spans on the abandoned Tillamook RR * Finally, regroup at Cornelius Pass Road House ~6pm for war stories and wound licking There will be no gasoline on the route once we leave Scappoose, so plan to have at least 100 miles worth of fuel. WHY: The weekend is going to be beautiful. Partly cloudy and upper 60's. Night time camping temps will likely be in the 30's so bring appropriate bags/sacks/whatever. This is going to be a great ride.
