Well, after seeing how everyone enjoyed the first two rides I guess this idea is going to stick. Thanks to you Mbabc for the inspiration after a bunch of us attended the original Ice Breaker Ride from Paoli, IN to Cave City.

So I was thinking that if we're going to do this every spring and fall, it should have an identifiable name. That way when it pops up on the ADV forum, people will immediately know what it's about.

Our town is known as the oldest city West of the Allegheny mountains. It was one of the places Daniel Boone had a part in. Many of the local business use Pioneer in their name and the now merged city school mascot was Pioneer.

Regarding something special for this ride....maybe. One of the guys from the last ride has pointed me to some very promising roads in and near Madison county. Some are so promising that only the experienced riders on small bikes might attempt them. If anything that tough is included there will be an alternate route for the ground clearance limited bikes.

I hope to do a personal inspection later this week. The only downside I see so far with that area is getting there and back won't be the most interesting. But from the info I've been provided, it will be worth the trip.

I finally found my calendar that had my commitments listed and it doesn't look good for me. I'm scheduled to be in North Carolina on a week's vacation that we had planned since this spring.
Dadgummit.
I'm still going to try to make it. I'd rather be in Kentucky.

Streeter route nearly complete

Thanks to Ahilis, the paved only route is pretty much complete. When I first started looking at the map of the area we had chosen, I was getting concerned that there wasn't much there. Ahilis keeps finding some really good roads. Some have been practically in my back yard since I was 16 and I've never seen them.

Right now we're working on what to leave in and what to cut out in the interest of keeping the mileage right around 175. The next task is to go back to the editing software and add in the dirty sections for those willing and able.

Expect preview photos soon.

Preview 1




I don't expect to see any water here. The roadway has a place where a creek can run across the road. It's not a moss covered slate creek bottom. But it's looking like the dual sport route will contain a little water.




Mark Sampson loves these little bridges for some reason. If only it was a suspended bridge he'd probably ride over here from Illinois to see it.


Here's your signs. Four of them so you'll be sure to turn. If you need those signs on this little tight road, you'd better stay home or walk.

Preview photos of the "dirt" route

Before you visit the link below, please note that the dirt, rock, or water sections shown in these photos WILL NOT be included in the "street" version of the route. Ahilis took those photos on part of the "dirt" route.

If you've crossed flat rock bottom creeks before, you know that they can impossibly slick like an ice rink with baby oil on it. Then there are crossings that have very good traction. The ones we have crossed are somewhere in between. They are slick but we managed with very light control inputs. The water level on the deepest has been about footpeg level on a KLR.

Here you go:
