Only a little snot in just a few wet places. Mostly perfect moisture & traction everywhere else!

The 100-mile KnoxvilleOHV, Reiff-Rayhouse, BlueRidge, & BuckIsland loop somehow grew to 119 miles.
We must have done a little exploring along the way. Tread Lightly!

Got back to pavement before dark, and back to the truck without going on reserve.
Dinner at the Rockville Bar & Grill was pretty good. The blonde bartender was even BETTER!

You missed a FUN one!

Yeah, we had to bunny-hop the locked gate again!

is that area doable on a 950 Adventure for a fairly good rider?

Yes, if they can negotiate the locked gate AND its not too wet. Most of it is easy when dry. When its wet though, the clay areas turn into "Moose Snot on Teflon(tm)!" Then the moderately-steep, rutted hills could get exciting!




NEXT WEEK ... watching the weather and will probably ride somewhere on Wednesday or Thursday. Where would you like to ride?

Not the recent trip, but these old tracks of mine at gpsexchange.com go there.

Rain again on Tuesday & Wednesday.

I suspect it will be Friday before Carnegie or Hollister will have all areas open again. Let me know if you are interested in either this week.

I'm riding Carnegie on Friday. Waiting to see if its a DS ride with a friend from home, or trucking the bikes there. I'll post details Thursday.

Ms.Beta is ready for her desert trip next week. The rain finally stopped.

Everything at Carnegie is open except the SRI loop. Ride tomorrow (Wednesday. Dec.19). Arriving by 11AM & riding to 3 or so. Dark-green Toy Tundra between Moto Mart & restrooms. Riding my (black&blue singletrack) practice loop a few times.

Anybody wanna go play tomorrow?

Wednesday (4/3/13) at Carnegie ...

Heading to Carnegie with Ms.Beta on Wednesday to practice some JL-School exercises and ride the fun 20-mile singletrack loop (black & blue trails) once or twice.

I'm working late Tuesday night, so won't get to Carnegie until 10-11am. Dark-green Tundra between Moto Mart & the restrooms.

Got your email and thanks for reaching out. I may try to make it to Hollister tomorrow. I have done a ton of work to my bike and need to get it out there. I was hoping to get my gearing changed before I rode again but wont be able to do that before tomorrow.

I will post up later tonight if I can make it. Not sure if I can make there by 9am as I will be coming from the Danville area.

Thanks!

Ed

I understand. Carnegie is getting very dry & dusty, so I don't mind riding by myself. Did you see the new trails cut into the SRI Loop area? Right above the MX track. They weren't open yet the last time I was there. I was SHOCKED! NEW TRAILS about to open at Carnegie!?!
