The Friday Hunter-Mtn Lippincott ride has filled up, and I made space for a couple more. If we get much more interest, we could potentially split into two groups if we have another willing ride leader. I'll be asking for folks to rotate sweep duty throughout the ride so everyone gets a chance to ride their own pace.

I am a bit concerned about the larger bikes on the ride, so I will be sending out a PM to those folks, to see if they are aware of the challenges of taking a bigger bike down Lippincott. Anything much bigger than a 650 might be challenging on Lippincott, and slow in other sections of the ride. This is a fairly long ride, so keeping up a good pace will be essential if we want to get back to camp in time for dinner.

I will be down there the Saturday before on the 23rd I will take my time riding it, If its to hard for me or I don't have a good pace - I will bow out. I am hoping to ride it once before the rally though. Anyone else out there early?

We have the same issue on the Saturday Cerro Gordo ride. At least one of the big bikes I'm aware of are pretty green and that is not the ride to learn technical offroad on with a big bike.

We are going to have to make about three groups out of ours. Some need to re-think or do an abreviated route. I have some ideas for an alternate for bigger bikes on our ride. Going out to the trams may not be do-able for some. They can still see Cerro Gordo and ride down to Saline.

Oh wait...you're one of the ride leaders. You get to herd some cats.

We went up Lippincott last year and it wasn't too bad. But that was Johngil and I on the Husky 630's. I wouldn't have wanted to be there on my Tiger. Going down is probly a little easier, but still a lot of loose rock and some steps. It can get washed out from rain too. All depends on how many 4x4's tramp it down. This is also not a place for noobs to learn big bike handling on tough terrain. It's a LONG way from camp. Ask Macadamia.

we are good with the 4 commercial grills, but still bring yours to make your coffee and breakfast at your campsite. we have to borrow the LPG tank before dinner. thanks anthony.

nevertheless, we still need 2 volunteers, each one to haul 1/2 truck bed of wood.

I rode down Lippincott 2 years ago on a lightly modded klr 650 and had my hands full. I consider myself a decent offroader and would not want to do it on anything bigger/ more expensive

Rich (M1),

Please take me off your Saturday ride. As much as I would love to ride, I am stuck in a cage. Although I will get to with Pablo some.

I've contacted a few riders that are signed up on my rides to make sure they understand what they are getting into.

The problem with Lippencott is that once you start it, you pretty much have to finish it, as there really isn't a place to turn around. Lots of rocks and a steep grades.

No I don't do I.

I'll take a load of fire wood if there is a place to park the truck. I was riding in but can change to driving in with wood...

...either way let me know.

Eek Lippencott

This is NOT the ride if you are a green rider on a larger bike. Once you start the loop down you cannot turn around it is a one way trip. This is an intermediate skill level ride on that portion.

You really need to understand that before taking on this road I was down it in November at it was in really bad shape much worse than last year.

Just sharing

Hello,

For all of the folks who have ridden Lippencott, IF, you have ridden Coyote Canyon in Anza, how does the rock section compare?
If you have not ridden it, will you Youtube and compare. Just the rock section of Coyote as the rest is
very easy but fun.

Thanks,

Heirhead

Last year I rode up Lippencott to the racetrack with my DR350 and had no issues. My friend rode his KLR up Lippencott with no issues either. Like all riding take your time and look ahead for a line through the rocks.

Then again I better bring a camera, noob rides are the best for carnage .
