Hey! It's time to signup! After all the dust at the DDSR rally (hey it happens) it reminded me of one thing that is really quite cool about the Moose Run. They publish maps and directions for each loop, they arrow the routes and even pre-ride it to make sure it is all ready to go. This means that you can pick your loop and ride in any size group you want. Last year was the inaugural year and I ended up riding solo on the B loop, though you would run into people along the way for awhile. I broke my gear shift lever and another ride was along in 5 minutes on the same trail asking if I needed help (used my needle nose vise grips for the next 2 days
Since there are NO gas stations along the routes, they even have a gas truck in the middle area and you simply tell them ahead of time how much gas you'll want. You dirt bikers for loop A singletrack should have no problem with a short tank range. And you guys touring on 1200's can take the C loop and stay on graded dirt roads and local highways.
The tent camping and RV parking at the county fairgrounds is FREE (no hookups), includes a t-shirt and BBQ dinner, all for an AMA sanctioned event for $75 with proceeds going to a local charity NYPUM to help troubled youths by taking them on dirt bike rides. Discount of $10 to AMA members. They have under 100 riders signed up so far but are hoping to get twice that. It was a great group last year, non-pretentious good people, reminded me of DDSR actually.
And I will buy every one of you from DDSR that shows up a nice cold beverage of your choice! How's that for hospitality? Oh yeah this is not near the High Park fire zone so no worries about that.
Jeff (Hellsickle) the route planner just published the mileages for the main loops on the AdvRider thread above. Looks like this:
A-loop: ~135 miles total, ~130 miles of dirt. (guestimating ~50 miles of single track)
B-loop: ~125 miles total, ~110 miles of dirt.
C-loop: 150-170 miles
So come on down and ESCAPE FROM RALLY WEEK !
Gerry? Jacyn? Josh? ... everybody!
