Ride starts at the entrance of the Rushing Wind Biker Church, 5715 E Pike, Zanesville, OH 43701 at about 09:30. Anyone else outside Columbus interested in riding can meet up there. Total mileage is about 150 and there is gas available at about 80 miles into the route. We can also grab some lunch at the gas stop. If we have really bad weather and have to delay or cancel the ride I will post up here, but am planning on riding if it’s not raining too hard so bring your rain gear. If anyone needs to get a hold of me before the start just PM me or call me on my cell at 614-332-23 eight eight.
You riding the Cabin Fever route?

Weather looks a little sketchy, do they run in the rain?
I would hate to slab the 3 hours out there only to have the event get cancelled

If you're on Facebook, I suggest following Flat Track Live. She'll be posting updates all day from the track.

And no, they don't run in the rain or on a muddy track.

Yep. It's a well done route. Supposed to meet up with one of the guys that organized the event after we start. He'll be riding the route backwards until we meet.

We had 1/2" of rain last night, its supposed to rain a little more today. I suppose most of it's technique, but you'll be spinning some uphill in the gravel with a little mud mixed in. I did with a MT43 trials tire on the WRR. A lot of the mud down this way is clay, so the trials tire loaded up quickly.
We'll go up a few hills that if you were in a 4x4 pickup, you'd probably shift to 4x just to maintain traction up the hill due to % grade on gravel, well at least we power company guys do.
As long as there is still gravel along with the mud i think i'll be ok. Once it turns to just snotty mud is when i'm screwed. I went through a little mud with Mark a few weeks ago and did fine for the most part.

I'm used to wheel spin, its what makes that bike so damn fun. I apologize in advance to anyone who happens to be behind me. I've been told it throws quite a roost even without knobs.

Lots of loose gravel. The roads down here don't "pack in" like others I've been on, so its almost always loose on top. I think because its a lot of river gravel vs. limestone.

Anyone bringing a tire pump to the little bike ride? I've got an electric one and an outlet but it would be a little awkward to carry. I'm running a worn out tire up front that I'd say is intended for 70% street use. I think it'll be pretty much useless above 10psi.

I'm carrying a 12V pump. If you have a outlet that will work out great, because I don't have one on the KTM (but do on the WRR). I just figured I'd strip the wires if needed.

I carry a pump and have a 12V receptacle.
