I've planned out a good ADV ride for the next ride.

Planned a ride using Basecamp or Mapsource- appears to be very similar.

Here's a screenshot up 181 by Brown Mountain.




I then switched the view to Google Earth to verify that it is in fact a passable road.



Zoomed.



I plan to check it out next time I go riding. Maybe a nice ADV ride from Charlotte.

321N
Take 10 to old 18
old 18 to 181
181 and exit Old Forest Rd.

Good idea. I am also going to finalize the GPS route and attach later today just in case an inmate has ridden this route and can offer some additional insght.

Thanks.

Here's a snapshot of my ride from CLT to Jonas Ridge and back.

242 miles total. 321N, Old 18, 181 to Jonas Ridge. Quick lunch and back.

If anyone wants the GPX tracks, let me know.

I tried to post here earlier to see if you did go riding but the site was down or something.

I should be good to go for the next trip though and the distance is about right. I'm in such shitty shape that frankly, I don't think I can handle too much distance. ESPECIALLY in this heat.

I have to redo the ads for my bikes and put them up on different places. I also tried doing that this morning but like I said, I think the site was down.

Still messing around with Basecamp vs. Mapsource but use the link to download the GPX file as I cannot post attachment in this post. Mileage is not accurate as I started the route from 321.

Take a look. We should check out this route on our next ride.

George,

The track logs that I posted was from the 06/23 ride. I didn't go riding last weekend as I had household chores.

Ride participation has been slim to none but doesn't matter to me as I go riding on Sunday's when I can. I will continue posting and at least setting up a meeting point for the rides and hopefully, we can get a group ride going. I am also learning more about using BaseCamp, Mapsource, Google Map and experimenting as I go as I am planning an abbbreviated TAT possibly next Summer with a buddy.

Later,

Jon

It's cool bro. I really don't much care where we ride and I don't have ANY sense of direction anyway so looking at the maps will do little for me.

I just like getting out and out of the house and with good company, it's even more fun :)

I've also known many of the guys on this post for many years although I have not been able to attend the monthly meeting due to my schedule.

This is also a good source for riding around WNC and similar from Charlotte.

Any interest on a ride this Sunday, 07/07?

This is the route that I'd like to check out. Lot of twisties followed by a mild ADV route.

Come to think of it, did you check on the weather for Sunday?

Hell, here in Marshville it's been raining for two weeks straight and it's raining again right now :(

50% chance this Sunday. ETA same as last time- 9:00am or so. Firgure 240+ miles and be back by 5:00pm is the plan.

Yeah, I agree that we may get some rain.........

Let's see how it looks after tomorrow.
