Of course, anyone is welcome to form a little private ride between buddies and take off.....or do a solo ride. (We do like Solo Riders to speak with Big_John, so that someone knows where you are going and when you will be back.....and Solo Riders should have a SPOT.)

Here are a couple of hypothetical examples of Ride give you an idea......

Leader: Big_John - KTM 950 ADV - 24 Riders Max
Alpine Loop Ride - Jeep Trails - 75 miles
Big to Mid-sized Bikes - Novice Riders and slow-moderate speed
Departure at 9am - Expected return at 4pm
Meeting in front of the Red Mtn Offices
Lunch in Lake City

Leader: Modette (Mark) - GAS GAS 300 - 10 Riders Max
Telluride - Single Track - Over Black Bear - 90 miles
Small Plated Dual Sport Bikes - Advanced Ride
Departure at 8:30 - Expected return at 5-6pm
Meeting by the RMAR BBQ Trailer
Lunch on the trail, pack appropriately

Leader: Mac (Matt) - BMW 1200GSA - 15 Riders Max
Million Dollar Highway, Rico/Durango Loop - 250 miles
Big Adventure Bikes - All Pavement
Departure at 8am - Expected return at 4pm
Meeting by Cabin #6
Lunch in Durango at the MicroBrew

Big John - good stuff (as usual). Mileage of the loop is critical for me. It sucks being the guy with the least range... I think I can squeeze 70 miles out of my bike.

Regarding registering, is the "donation" the only fees for this event?
