I see HRC is pulling out all the stops in this year's Dakar effort No expense too great or small!

How are the roads on the Peninsula ans down on the Southside? I was thinking about putting on 5 pairs of socks and riding down that way since it is warmer down South. The wind is wiping up here.

I hate waking up balls-early so, personally, I'd want to go down Friday night and stay somewhere (anywhere) close and do kickstands up NLT 9ish.

Also, that whole route is like 180 miles. I've never really tracked mileage vs time in the dirt but is the whole thing doable in a day or would we have to cut the route off a little shorter?

Quoted myself.

Good ride today. I did not make it to the South side. The tag was a little too far. Not too cold. Only wore two pair of socks. The wind did not blow me off the Coleman bridge either. Stopped and saw dljocky. He is doing well and getting around much better.
