    We can firm up the meet time and place next week (say by Thursday latest?) Black99s, I'd rather meet at 10am or later but let's see...if I go much earlier and decide to camp up there I might get too bored before dark... unless I'm fightin off all the bears :lol3

    The map is from Google Maps and it's just a computer 'screen shot' :-)

    Sounds like a plan. Clutch job on the truck is done and now it's just relatives to to negotiate. I think I'm probably good to go. I'll just have to kick them out if need be.

    Surely we can turn this into at least a small group ride.

    Loose Screw event this year had 4 different rides, a ride for everyone. I managed 2/3 of the B route before tiring out and taking the C+ route back to camp.

    Hi Black99S,

    thanks for invite - I would like to do that one but I will not be around this weekend.

    But would be interested if you guys do it another time.
    Also interested in doing a Kookipi loop sometime if others are interested.
    I alway get about 1/3 way and get turned around for one reason or another.

    Well the weekend is fast approaching and the weather is lookin good for a ride to Indian Arm.
    I'll plan to be at the St Davids Church parking lot @ Taylor Way and HWY 1 for 10 Saturday morning.

    Sounds as if you might make it larolco, cool...anyone else up for a ride Saturday morning?
    I plan to be ready to camp overnight somewhere up that way :-)

    Planning a ride to Winthrop on Saturday with a side trip to Slate Peak Lookout.
    Road to the lookout was closed last year due to fires so going to give it another try. Riders welcome.

    I'll be there. I'll be heading back the same day. No camping for me.

    Rode up to Slate Peak Lookout in late June. Road is super easy. Frickin'cold as shit as I remember, especially compared to the lovely warmth of Winthrop.

    We made Republic by sunset. Found a nice spot to crash 10 miles east of the town.

    3526910.png Day 2 started with a gravel ride to the ghost town Phoenix then pavement all the way home We did visit the Apex ski hill to take the Hedley Nickel Plate road to Hedley but the peak was socked in and it was raining so we headed back down the way we came up and went around the downpour. The highlights of the trip were Slate Peak and a great gravel section off Hwy 20 to Conconully.
    All in all a great weekend of riding considering the original ride plan was a day ride :-)

    Depends on how the morning goes. Possibility if there's a meet-up somewhere in the valley. I either make it or I don't.

    Make a healthy contribution towards the S1000 BMW I want and you can have my old Vee. I even have new Dunlops for it on the way as of this afternoon.
