UP DATE! Utah in the spring! San Rafael Swell/Reef and Swingarm City

Utah in the spring! The San Rafael Swell/Reef and Swingarm City. March is cold and we're all looking forward to some early season dirt riding. The Swell is just past Green River off I70. This area is a Meca for off-roading and sight seeing. The Swell is approximately 2000 sq miles that includes the Reef and is divided in half by I70. Most of which is BLM. Some of the best prehistoric pictograph rock art is found in the swell. The roads in the swell exist from the uranium mining boom of the 50's. As result most of the roads are easy dirt, sand and light rocks. However there are incredible intermediate routs as well. This trip is fitting for most skill levels. Keep in mind that even the easy roads will have some sandy spots. LIGHT BIKES - Both north and south sides have great riding. The south side out of Temple Mountain camp has the single track exclusive trails. Also trailer hopping is easy. Having a rig at I70 with fuel makes every thing on the north side totally reachable. If you have a 4 gallon tank then fuel is not an issue. I anticipate doing some trailer hopping to trail heads. Big bike, Light bike big tank, light bike small tank ALL WELCOME. BRING LOTS OF WATER!!! Play list of most rides in the swell. Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_AP-gyhF9Oi2V7nDqWzaQmpfKkFqN-xE - The itinerary Planning meet #1 03/10/19 1:00 in Loveland 100 W 29th st. Coldwell Banker Office. Planning meet #2 04/07/19 5:00 Crow Hop Brewery 214 E 4th st Loveland 80537. Some of us will be trailering out and I'm sure there are those that will want to ride out. This area is epic for Big Bikes! I'll have a 990s and fe 501. The weather will be mid 70's to mid/high 80's. However be prepared for anything. Cool/cold nights possible rain and or snow is not out of the question. Meet Place and time on April 25th - T REX Lot off I70 and Hwy 93 at 6:00 am - Make final preparations and role out at 7:00 am - Arrive at the Swell at 2-3:00pm. Camp #1 -San Rafael Bridge. This area has fire rings, toilets and tables. Every ride is easily reached from this location. 25th - Afternoon Ride out of camp. Mexican Mtn. road, Wedge Overlook. - Both are easy and big bike/light bike fun. First afternoon shake out. 26th - First full day. Ride Wicki up > Devils Race track > South coal wash > Eagle Canyon. - Wicki, Devils - Light bike bias. 27th - Full Day 2. Black Dragon Wash > Jackass Benches > Lockhart box maybe more. - Dragon, Jackass, Lockhart - Light bike bias. STAY IN GREEN RIVER. I'LL RESERVE 4 ROOMS W/ 2 KINGS 28th - Move Camp to Temple Mtn camp area on the South side of the swell. Ride Behind the Reef > Little Wild Horse > Hidden Splendor Mine. - Reef, Wild Horse, Splendor - light bike bias 29th - Rally down to Swing arm city > Factory Butte 30th - Travel home Easy 2 tracks like McKay Flats, Fuller Bottom, Oil Well Flats, Cane Wash are just some of the Long 2 tracks and dirt roads that are in the same areas as the intermediate roads. Which is really helpful if a bike needs rescuing. And gives riders of different levels the ability to start and finish in about the same areas. Bike Prep - Having a well prepped bike is must! Have newer tires! Tool suggestions - Spare tubes/plugs Bead breaker Chain breaker spare chain/links/master link Small generator. Air Full tire/tube change spoke wrench electrical wire, tape, connectors spare hardware Sockets, allens, torx, etc. Be sure you can work on your bike on the trail. Extra oil, hydraulic, mineral, coolant etc. Depending on turn out. A determination about experience levels and group leads will be made later. Question on the table - Do we get rooms in Green River night 3. We're moving to Temple mountain for day's 3 and 4. I vote YES! I will reserve the rooms and we can sort this out in the next meeting.

Phantom Canyon & Shelf Road - Adventure & Dual Sport Ride

Starting in Sedalia, we will be heading out to Cripple Creek and onto Canon City and back using Phantom Canyon and the Shelf Road for a loop. We will stop for lunch in Canon City. This is normally a VERY popular ride, and I will open it up to more people if a couple people volunteer to lead groups. I have GPS routes or we can run the course early for the other leaders. Thanks! The date is weather dependent and may change due to adverse conditions! This old toll road, which Canon City built in 1892, is the rough middle leg of the Gold Belt Tour, a Colorado Scenic & Historic Byway and a National Back Country Byway. The third leg is mostly paved High Park Road, to the west. It was the first wagon and stage route to link the Cripple Creek and Victor gold fields with the Arkansas River Valley and cities of the Front Range. Points of interest include Window Rock, a hole eroded into 1.7 billion-year-old rock; The Shelf, a rough one-lane section above Fourmile Creek; the site of the toll collector's cabin (private land); the limestone cliffs of the Shelf Road Recreation Area, popular among rock climbers; Red Canyon Park's sandstone figures; Garden Park Fossil Area, an important dinosaur graveyard discovered in 1876; the site of the West's first oil well; possibly Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. (Brownie Points if you actually see them) The road through the canyons of Fourmile and Cripple creeks involves an elevation change from 5,330 ft. at Canon City to 9,395 ft. at Cripple Creek, and passes through differing life zones. Difficulty : Easy to moderate graded roads, perfect for Larger Adventure Bikes (KTM 990, BMW 1200 GS, Tiger Xplorer, Yamaha Tenere) and Dual Sport Bikes. Some sections of highway and paved back roads. We can add more groups/riders if some people are willing to volunteer to lead groups, GPS tracks of the ride are available. Let me know if you are willing to lead a group and I'll increase the head count.
