    We're in (2). We have three loops (45-80 miles each) good for big bikes. Mix of paved, unpaved, gravel, and seasonal unmaintained. We'll probably lead one or two and share the GPS tracks so anyone can do them. More details tomorrow...

    Glad to have you joining us!

    If you don't mind, I will quote this, and add it to the first post so it can be easily found by the masses. :freaky

    My routes will be led group rides.

    It looks like AnyDay will be supplying GPS tracks if requested.


    Look forward to meeting you. :freaky

    I have no sign-ups for the street ride yet, so it could be done either day. I chose Saturday thinking y'all would want to be fresh for the ride home on Sunday.

    Let the sign-ups tell me which day.

    I'm in for the street ride. My preference would be for Saturday so I would be fresher for the Sunday dual sport ride.

    I am a local, I am from and live in Walton, about 10 miles away. Saturday is the finale of the Delaware County Fair, so I probably won't be able to make this year's ride.

    I don't think riding on private land is a great idea, fortunately there are a fair number of seasonal roads and DEC forest roads that double as snowmobile trails in the winter.

    You can get a pretty good overview of the DEC roads by downloading the "DEC ROADS".kmz file from the DEC's web site http://www.dec.ny.gov/geodata/ptk

    Use Google Earth to browse the kmz file.

    I have also found the Delaware count tax map useful to determine if an abandoned road is public or private. That web site is here http://www.giswebhost.org/delaware/

    I have also posted some tracks on this web site here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=721895

    and here
    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=891593

    Have fun and be safe! Be aware that this year's date coincides with the last day of the fair and that traffic on the feeder roads to Walton will be several times normal.

    Although I've got a KTM 400 I've got dual purpose tires on it at the moment, so this is probably my best bet.

    Good to know that there will be a range of options for rides.
    Thanks for stepping up.

    I'm not into beer.
    I think people that "have relations" with stuffed bananas are strange.
    And senior citizen pyros are well just wacked.

    But I do like this event :clap:clap:clap

    Website looks great.
    I'll be tenting it, but Google reviewer raised points that might be issues for some.
    Anyone visited since the most recent reviewer to confirm, or check in with management?
    Do they know they are about to be descended upon by hoards of ADV riders?
