    I miss the Moose Run Dual Sport Rally, which was held around the end of July/beginning of August, in Walden.
    I think of the organized rides I have participated in - this was my favorite.
    All of the moisture remaining in the high country this year makes me think of the 2014 ride.
    Similarly wet, there was plenty of mud and water to make it very entertaining and, for someone that grew up riding in the mainly dry around here, terribly FUN.
    I wish the desire was there to bring this well run and supported ride back.
    It had to bring a boost to the area's economy.
    Great memories anyway. Thanks to those that made it happen.

    It was a wonderful event. And being on the board every year but the last year of the run I can also say it was a fair amount of work. We did have a good time and hope everyone that attended had a great experience.

    I was wearing my T-Shirt from the 2015 Moose Run yesterday; very fond memories of that event!. It ranks way up there in terms of fun for organized rides.

    Agree - the folks that ran it worked hard to cater to different levels of riders. Even those that couldn't even ride thru small deep mud puddles... even they won awards! Maybe the most highly sought after of all awards... The Captain Nemo Award!
