Those of us not shooting can just go to pie. 151 would be Westside Rd?

You going to be there all weekend Dean?

How does Dictum compare to Union Springs?

Do you think the hack can be flogged over dictum?

So much for my new bike. It'll be in pieces before the weekend is over.

I'll just have to swing by Blooch's garage on my way home and pilfer those two bikes for parts.

Dictum is rockier and steeper than union springs. Once you are in there it would be very hard to turn around. I would be afraid of flipping a hack. Think of it more like single track than a road. Let me see if I can dig up some pictures.



edit pictures: If you look at the album, only the last couple are from the ledges on dictum ridge. The rest are from rough run and another road I forget the name of.

From sept. 2009 ds ride with george

The ATV trail is the dotted line which goes over both (big loop). I was thinking we leave Kevins and run up Dictum from rt33 to the ATV trail. This will be a challenge, I've yet to ride it without pushing. I've seen it done, so I know it's possible.
