That's true. Someone said so on a forum or something, so it must be true.

OK, so a very nice person dug out the tracks from a few past GS rides and gave them to me, and I have converted them to routes, and fixed some back tracking stuff. I used routes, because most GPS devices should handle those, and since these are all based on gravel roads (as opposed to single track and such), routing works quite well.

It is only possible to attach GPX files in the "laying down tracks" section of the forum, so I created a thread with the 2 files.

It is here.

I hope this helps. The routes do not contain any specific stops or waypoints, or points of interest or gas stations, or anything else that might be useful.

If you have some specific stop points you would like me to add to the files, just let me know.

EDIT: I also added a route from Cannon Falls to Lanesboro on gravel roads, which was created from a track that I think is still available on the BMWMOCM website. It might provide a fun ride going down to Hiawatha.

THANK YOU, Prop! I take back everything that I said about you yesterday. You are, indeed, a stand-up fellow.

Thank you. I think you are a good guy not matter what others say behind your back.

Gas is good.

Unless you have eaten a lot of cabbage.

In June you'll likely start thinking like the others do on that matter.

So, this rally thing..

Are there day passes??

Can I drive my truck to this and borrow a bike??

Is the hotel room included in the fee??

Will there be a bus to give tours??

Do I have to pay extra to get a room by myself, or will there be "rentals" available to keep me company??
