    Fun concept ride; if I wasn't already committed to STAR 2015 at the same time, I'd strongly consider tagging along.

    Great! So we're around 7 bikes. My goal was to get to about a dozen riders, so we're getting there.

    Be sure to stop by the Grocery Store in Lebanon & pick up a T-shirt.

    We're 120 days out, and we've got 9 riders who say they're in.

    I just went back to the first post and the link to the Google Map doesn't work any more. Can you check the link to the map?

    Edit: I built it myself - does this work?

    Yes.

    This route takes you dangerously close to 5th Fest.

    I'll say no more.

    Your map did something funky leaving the KS monument site (you can ride directly east to the highway) and technically, staying on 281 would take you through Jamestown ND, rather than around it, but yes, you basically got the route.

    Thanks for letting me know that the link in the first post was broken. I went back and updated the link. (Google recently killed some of their map features.)

    Yeah, I was trying to get rid of that loopty stuff at the origin site aaannnnnd - no.

    trying to get Google Maps to do a directions from the origin site to destination was not happening either. It kept sending me to USGS offices in KS somewhere.:huh Eventually just did it from the origin to Rugby ND instead. Mostly successful.
