    Loose Nut Dual Sport Ride 2019:

    Daniel Boone National Forest – Renfro Valley, KY - Nov 2 & 3, 2019


    Mark your calendars - we are well into the planning of the 8th Annual Loose Nut Dual Sport Ride. This year it will be in Daniel Boone Nation Forest Area around Renfro Valley, KY on the 2nd & 3rd of November, 2019. We keep having such a great time laying out these tracks……..we’re just going to keep doing it next year and the next year and the next year and its always going to be on the first Saturday of November. Even better.......it's always going to be a new ride in a new area.........no repeats (at least not for a while). So for 2019 we decided that Eastern KY sounded like fun……..Red River Gorge……..Nada Tunnel………Daniel Boone National Forest and the Renfro Valley KOA Campground would be perfect. Of course it’s always hard to top last year’s ride, but the folks we have met so far, the trails we have found the creeks we’ve been too scared to cross and quite possibly the best campground accommodations we’ve seen yet……….this is going to be a great ride for 2019.



    This is an ADVENTURE, ride at your own risk, ride within your own skill level, unofficial, find your own way there, provide your own lodging and food, no buy in, no costs, no services provided, no organization, bring you own tools, check out the suggested GPS tracks along public roads and trails, visit fun historical out of the way places that you might miss if you weren't from around these parts ( and some that you would ), self guided, bring along your friends, STREET LEGAL dual sport and adventure type motorcycles, this is going to be a great time, hope it rains to keep the dust down, lots of gravel roads, dirt roads, trying to stay off pavement as much as possible, etc..............most of you are going to love this ride and the beautiful Kentucky hills and hollers........if you've been to the Missouri Swinging Bridges rides, Hoosier National Forest rides, or one of the previous Loose Nut rides then you will understand the ADVRIDER community and how this works. A GPS/GPX file is uploaded with suggested tracks and waypoints - a couple of us are going to ride these roads/tracks on the first Saturday of November 2019 - we'd love it if you were there too, but it's a pretty neat ride that was all available to street legal vehicles when it was laid out.........so ride it whenever your schedule allows. If the creeks haven't risen and the bridges don't get washed out and roads don't get closed then these should be some pretty GREAT tracks - Have a GREAT Ride and be SAFE.


    Tracks all start and finish at the entrance to the Renfro Valley KOA Campground. There will be plenty of gas stops available along the way. And lots of places to get lunch, grab a snack or just to stop and visit.





    Link to Tracks will be POSTED here:

    despite the less than ideal scouting weather..........we have really started to uncover some fun riding.........of course there will be lots of creek crossings, gravel roads, beautiful scenery and some of the best curvy hilly roads we can find..........
