North Berwick to Fryeburg Dual Sport Ride "2015"

Well its that time again folks, Our 5th annual year.

Remember this is a follow the leader kinda ride, I have no maps to hand out or anything like that. We wait for the guy behind you so there's no lost bike's out there. There can be alot of waiting, you just never know.

This is an unorganized ride, Ride at your own Risk!

MAINE does require ATV REGISTRATION to ride Maine trails! Just sayin
I do not care if you are registered or not, Ride at Your Own Risk!
But remember to come with a full tank of gas!
Plenty of gas stops but not within the first 40 miles or so.
No need to bring a lunch, we will supply food and drink.

Date Saturday MAY 30th, Rain date Sunday May 31st.


Meet at Noble High School, Rt 9, Somersworth Road, North Berwick

Kick stands up at 9am,
First leg to West Newfield is about 45miles, about 2.5 hrs give or take. Expect everything on this part, from single track, tight and technical, mudd, water, its all there, rocky river crossings, Not as bad as it sounds but its not gonna be easy either. Leave Panniers Home!!

Here is a map of the intended route.

Lunch again at my house in West Newfeild, about half way to Fryeburg. My family will supply food and drink like the previous year's.

Second leg from West Newfiled to Fryeburg is about 50 miles. This part will be much easier with some fantastic dirt roads with great scenic veiws.
Here is the map of the second leg,there will be a re-route not shown on this map for Big Bikes and our group, Paul Hill rd in Eaton NH has a hard hill climb, We will be turning left at the end of Youngs Hill Rd onto Towle Hill rd, follow to end turn right onto rt153 and follow to you come back on trac around crystal lake
https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?m...BwYyU8Pk&msa=0

The third leg is the Quickest route from Fryeburg back to Noble, there will be some dirt roads and some really cool twisty back roads, so the ride back wont be boring but easy.
Here's the third leg map

Please keep in mind these Routes may change.

Looks like I got the 30th off!!!! Not sure if I'm tough enough for leg 1. I'm trying to muster the courage for leg 1. The Tiger says yes but I'm on the fence. How deep is the water??

most of the deep stuff is around footpeg deep, give or take a few inch"s, one or two above the crankcase. All depends how dry or wet the month of May will be.



And thanks for all the kind words you FF's, family is doing good, Our girls are in there prime reproductive age and there not letting us down, the 5th grandchild came into this world 2 weeks ago, number 6 is due may 25th, that makes 3 newborns in less than a year keeping us very busy and loving every minute of it!
