It's all open now... so unless he was complaining about a fine that he got last month... I can't imagine was he was mumbling about?

Sounds like you guys had an awesome time. Glad you enjoyed the west fork of Bennett creek. From the pics it looks that the road was in prime shape and no problem finding your way out.



best of luck on all the bike repairs. Hope to ride with you soon.

Ya, thanks for the heads-up on the route, Tom. It was a good one.

Oh man don't put it that way. It makes you guys look like old ladies and I KNOW you were hauling ass

If I did that math for my rides I would stil be trying to get out of the driveway.

Ya, but we got gas a few times, stopped for lunch.. stopped for repairs, blah blah, blah.

I'd like to set my GPS next time, to record only the moving speed average, and see what we average.

That's funny... but I bet you're pretty close, really. We were doing 30ish through Tollgate to Hammett, the fast gravel was 65+, the easy double was 50+, and the rough double was 30+.

Next time I'll remember to set my GPS.

Thumb What a great ride


Hey guys... this is the first time I'v checked this post since the Poker ride. Ryan you guys look like you had a great ride. I wish I could have been there. Im really interested in the whole "south" idea and the ICT route. Sorry to hear about the technical difficulties, but hey, unless we push the limits are we having fun? OK, no need to answer that... Looks like a great new back tire though.

Thanks for some great pics!!!

andy

Hi Andy,

I was just telling Heath during the ride, that you'd have been a great addition to that group. You'd have loved it, and wouldn't have had any problem keeping up. Heath, Ed, and Bob are a great group of guys to ride with... youd like them.


Anytime you want to do it, just let me know! I know you 'work' on Sundays... but I'm out of school soon, and we could do it on a Monday or Tuesday (or both... for that matter, there are lots of great spots to camp down there).


Later this summer, I'd like to do Jarbidge to Elko too... but that'll have to be around July when all of the passess are melted off for sure.

Laugh sounds really great Ryan !!!

I'm looking forward to the summer and getting to know those back roads. I'll keep you posted, and I'll keep my eyes on the post here more consistently.

great!

Looks to me you went to the top of Lookout Mtn Rd. and the backside is still snowed in. Great ride and awesome pics. My favorite place in Eastern Oregon. Did you make it past the Daly creek turnoff?
