Well we know who’s NOT carrying the baton on the Virginia leg.
Doesn't look like much yet, but this hexagonal hunk of aluminum will soon be the Baton.
Check out the Women Riders World Relay, there’s a baton making its way global right now, going to be in the U.S in September/October. Might give you some ideas for logistics. Sounds like fun!
I’m looking forward to this!
Yep! I just got back from an ADV meetup ride in Laurel Forks WV. was a BLAST.
Time to resume planning on this.
Ever listen to Motorcycles and Misfits podcast? The creators of the podcast and the one who hosts the Re-Cycle Garage in Santa Cruz, CA, have put together a world-wide relay with women riders. She may be willing to share some of her tips & techniques, as well as the pain of putting this together. As an aside, I go up to the Re-Cycle Garage now and then...a great bunch of people there!

Did some turning on the baton today, will do more when I have a few more minutes to spend....
Dunno why it looks tapered one the left side - it's not.
The taper look is just light reflection, it’s looking good.
Cool, I'm in!
I could also do some other states just to go ride somewhere I haven't.
Glad to have you aboard! Added you to the OP.
Also, sorry for my lack of attention. Been super busy over the last 2 weeks and had two big trips. Now that I'm back and more or less settled I can return my focus to making this happen!
8 brave souls and counting! This would be a great annual event!
All right folks, I'm going to be updating the map and working on finding a potential route tonight and posting it up.
The next big question is going to be WHEN? I know we are running out of riding season in the next 2-3 months around here. What are your thoughts? Do we try to make a go of this before the end of the season or do we continue to gather our forces so to speak and shoot for Spring? To be clear, I'm down for either but sooner puts more of a time crunch on, and I worry that it may be more difficult to get folks to take legs of the ride in the cold.
There will snow on the ground at my place next month. Random warm days will still exist for a bit longer, but not much. So I'd vote for next Spring. Also give more time to find additional people that want to get involved.
Agreed! Plan for next spring. Gives you more time to plan things out! By then more people will be looking To get out and ride somewhere to get the ride season started. Starting now would make a bit more difficult for folks in the northern areas to participate.
Im leaning toward spring. This season is winding down and I running short on getting in the remaining miles I want to cover. Black Hills, Montana & Idaho CDT, Colorado BDR.
The idea sounds interesting and fun. Put me down for Tennessee or one of our adjoining states. I also have a Spot tracker I no longer use and would be willing to donate it to the cause.
Added to the list of riders!
Added @TUCKERS per his request! Welcome!
