Yup. It’s a dual sport and separate adventure rides. It’s not a harescramble course.
Site 15 Bobcat
I’m confirmed for Bobcat 25. Not sure if I’ll be riding, but I’ll be there for the evening festivities!
late to the thread, and new to this ride... so what's a good time to slide in with some folks riding out of the campground on Sat morning?
If I recall correctly, most the rides I went to had people departing around 9 AM. People are usually a little slower to get going during these autumn and winter rides because there's a little less incentive to "beat the heat." If you got to camp around 8, you'd probably find plenty of people milling around and would have time to settle in with a group and ensure you're ready to follow along behind them as they were preparing to take off. (It's typical that people will break off and ride in groups of 3-7 like-minded/skill-matched riders.) It's been a little while since I've been to an HNF ride, so if I sound a little off, someone else feel free to correct the timing I listed in this post.
There are a few that head out early that requires their bike lights on if that is your cup of tea!
Getting close! Will there be routes posted?
Tracks are now in post #1
Good Morning RoadDad.
Have the tracks downloaded to Basecamp. There are 300+ waypoints (looks to be for turn points?) that were color coded to represent the 4 individual tracks. Beings the 4 tracks are color coded, I am currently going thru and taking out those as not to clutter up my waypoint manager. I know you use Mapsource which operates a little different to Basecamp which may be the reason for these waypoints???
Here is Sat Am clean and Sat Pm in green yet. Looking forward to the ride!
Good point George ---I'll add a track that doesn't have all the waypoints. It will only have waypoints for gas stations, food and such
Another question @RoadDad. There is 4-6 spots where there is couple hundred feet double back on a road. Is there something to see at that end, or is this where you tie together partial tracks together to make the larger track? Example: Sat PM west of Worthington. CR W650 & CR N400W.
Those are the traditional 'chicken' sections where the timid and brave are determined as dozens of riders go head-on at each other and we see who yields and who crashes.
Yeh, Wire Fox, you have my story and I'm stickin to it. But to calm Old179 George down I reviewed the tracks and eliminated those double backs. They were just places where I blew past a turn in my haste to get the final tracks run. I have replaced the tracks with this clean version as of Sunday 10/03/21.
Thanks Jerry, I will be able to sleep tonight! I thought blowing thru turns was just for us rookies??????
Inmates learn to not follow me too closely as I tend to make panic stops after missing a turn. I forgot that lesson myself at Moab last week and I hit Zack Bridtow's rear tire and fell over in the middle of the street. I'm sure it was amusing to all the tourists. There I was, in the middle of an intersection, foot jammed under the Wr and unable to move. Zack was quick to lift the bike off and we were on our way---lesson learned
The tracks look great. Lost of great roads and stuff to see. I will ride them, just not on the ride weekend. Hopefully soon.
My brother and I will be in TN that weekend riding dirt bikes.
Tracks look absolutely befitting for the wanderlust loving knights and knaves of the spoked wheel.
Ta, O Father of the Road!
I loaded the tracks into my phone to view.
Thinking of coming over for a day ride. Is the Saturday loop the Southern loop or the Northern loop?
