    I have a few gravel/class B routes in Johnson County (my home) and Cedar County. I will share gpx if people are interested or pm me.

    Weekend after next, A buddy and I may be riding dirt and gravel from North Liberty to Amana, then down to Norway and Blairstown. 3 fun little water crossings between Norway and Blairstown, feel free to tag along if you'd like. I'll be on a WR250r, he will probably be on his 350EXC or maybe a versys.

    Thanks for making these tracks. A few of us are gonna forego our TWAT ride the 22nd of October and head south from Dubuque towards Mark Twain NF. How long of ride is it from DBQ to Hannibal? I'm trying to get a handle on how far we will make it since we have 5 days there and back. It seems most of the rides this year we cover about 200 miles a day.

    The distance from Dubuque to West Point IA is 220 miles, from West Point to St. Louis via the TMoT River route is 250 miles and the distance from St. Louis to Mark Twain NF via TMoT is 111 miles. Dubuque to Hannibal is about 320 miles.

    Thanks. Does anyone use a program or online map to make tracks using a desktop computer? I get tired of using a small device to make or edit tracks.

    I use Garrmin Basecamp

    It is a full day from Dubuque to the start of Siegs tmorr. With all the rain be wary of the dirt roads.
    I live in the Fort Madison area, if you need a place to stay let me know.

    We will definitely skip the mud roads this time since we are taking big bikes. I'm sure we will find water crossings a plenty tho!
