What we're about

Okay, so a dirt/gravel road is still technically a road. This group's goal is to find those hidden rides on gravel/dirt roads that you just don't want to end. Obviously, we'll be heading out of town! The goal will be to post at least one ride per month that is within a couple hours of town. Ride distances will vary between 20 and 50 miles for now. One of the purposes of this group will be to introduce people to the alternative riding options in the area. With that being said, most of the rides will be at a moderate pace. Ideally, we'll be able to set up rides that have bailout points, but that can be difficult on gravel/dirt roads. Right now the exploration starts with Google Earth followed by a reconnaissance ride and then a posted ride. If anyone is interested in joining the recon rides, then those can be posted too. These will be limited to fairly experienced riders since you never know what conditions you'll encounter (sleepy roads on Google Earth aren't always sleepy in person). Suggested rides are definitely welcome and if there is enough interest then there may be rides geared towards the experienced riders (of which I am not).
