what is this warped you speak of?
I’m in! I owe at least procycle and bergdonk beers for their endless help.
I helped put this thing together, does that earn me a beer?

You get a beer! You also get a beer! Everyone gets a beer! Look under your chairs everyone. It’s beer!
Anyone planning to give the UTBDR Lockhart Basin a run?
luckily I no longer have one...
It's on my list. I'd like to run it from south (Hwy 211) to north (Moab) with route back to 3-Step dependent on arrival time at Moab. With an early start and decent pace Onion Creek and east side of LaSals back to 3-Step may be possible. Allowing for start time, distractions and group dynamic, back to 3-Step from Moab on the highway would be the realistic approach.
Honestly, I don't think that's doable unless you really wick up the pace.
I put this together for a possible run at LB:
But that's a 160 mile loop back to the 3 step. Adding Onion creek would make it something like a 200 mile day.
Even at 160 mile, that's pushing the day's mileage unless you're just bombing it. That's just been my experience with the past two trips down there.
I’m looking at going north to south, head out early. Do the rough part first. The more technical part is north by Hurrah Pass, right?
Going south bound the most tech section starts where the Chicken Corners route and Lockhart Basin rd split. Easy to lose the rd in the slick rock wash if youre not paying attention.
Yep, leave something in the tank for the campfire, ladies. At dark, the night will still be young.
I know you’re right cyberdos, loop length needs to be right for a good “be there, be in it” ride without frantic pace or looming darkness. A sand thrash down Lockhart Canyon to the river should be ample humbling if I seem too anxious. I've got a case of going grocery shopping while starving. Your 160 mile loop is plenty to bite off and chew. @Terek, my notion of south to north was based on starting at the familiar (to me) end and running downhill through the tech section south of the Chicken Corners intersection. @Burro driver you sound familiar with it. Apart from clearing the difficult earlier in the ride, any thoughts on up versus down through the tech section on the DR?@Buckee, I'm going to be in training until Sept 5th so I can stay up past my 8PM bedtime and meet you folks, hear some stories and lies.
On Lockhart if you are going north bound the technical section will be down hill. South bound will be uphill. Whatever your preference is.
Its not nearly as bad as some of the bonus loops in the area but still fun!
Does anyone have a way for us to list ride ideas and links to resources? If not maybe I can find a way for us to collaborate on a list.
Quiet around here @pontoon. Post your notion, I'm all ears.
Here's a view of the country from LaSal over to Gateway Colorado:
This could be part of a loop from 3-Step to LaSal to Gateway to Moab back down 191 to 3-Step.
Also a good truck trip over to the auto museum Eileen says she'll do with any other non-riders around camp.
