Tin Cup is a nice , semi-rough ride....but it just doesn't compare to the half dozen passes in the Silverton area.....

Namely.....

Black Bear
Cinnamon
Hurricane
Engineer
Imogene
California
Etc......

All you folks are going to have the opportunity to ride some of the greatest county on the planet. The San Juan Mountains around Silverton are very hard to equal.

I am in final negotiations on the BaseCamp. This place is frickin awesome and am 90% positive we can secure it.

The thing is, this place doesn't start taking reservations until after the first of January......so I am going to keep it under the lid....for a while longer.

Another change this year will be a full blown registration website. A fellow ADV'er has volunteered his services and server space to help out. We will shoot for a live site the first of January.

I will say people will be shocked at this place A little birdy told me.

Oh, and cool about the registration site, that make things easier. Plus I might be able to score better door prizes (although hard to beat the ones form this year). It just helps a company validate us as a group...instead of some nut calling them saying "hey you got any freebies"...LOL

That's a HELLOFA round about way to get to Silverton from Farmington.

Normally I have to ride through Silverton to get to Tin Cup.

I'm short a singletrack bike these days, but do have my XRL.

I'm off my cane now, but haven't been riding much. Still trying to let my leg heal up more before I get after it but I'm sure I'll be good to go by next season starting in June.
