    No worries; there are big bike go-arounds and for those more adventurous, the "hero" sections. You'll be in store for some excellent scenic riding, and you can tailor it to your comfort level. You'll have a great time...

    I guess if I get to Burt Hill Road, I could probably watch for a bunch of bikes and tents???

    upload_2016-5-18_22-10-52.png off of 57 Burt Hill Rd goes to the left up the hill. Look for a bunch of scooter bums hanging out in the woods on your left side of the road about a half mile up.

    On Burt Hill Rd as you turn off Rte 57, travel 1 mile and bear left, still following Burt Hill Rd. Go 0.8 mi further and you will be there.

    I'm sure somebody mentioned that already but for this ride you do want your best stealth mode. I like my Leo Vince exhaust without the dB killer but I did put it back in yesterday.

    We do like to come back to this ride :)

    I'll be coming in Friday around 4-5pm, camping at the start/end of the event. I'm thinking of bring my tent hammock, I remember the tent area being pretty open. But I do remember tree's surrounding us, suggestions?

    Everybody who is planning on post entering, PLEASE bring correct change. 2 day entries are not a problem, but single day riders $55 we will run out of $5 bills real quick.
