I got a 108 mile ride in yesterday on the little DR. I'm going to have a lot of fun on that bike. I rode down to the trusty Allegan woods.

I didn't see any other bikes. I did notice a lot of blocked side trails since I was last there two years ago. The signs were either no motorized vehicles, only foot traffic, or only horses with big logs and trees blocking entrance. I guess I'll have to do some more riding in the Manistee National Forest, Cedar Creek, etc.

Maybe you already know it but there are some good back roads on the north side of the Grand River between you and GR. Perfect for a DR. You can stop in Marne at the Depot for grub. Murphys in Allendale has good food too.

I ran a GLDS event from my house. I have a 160 mile loop mapped out if anyone is interested.

Looks like 10AM. Come early if you want a good parking spot. There will be hundreds, if not thousands of bikes riding in throughout the day.

Will do.

You work business hours though right? Not sure when I can get down there on a weekend anytime soon. Maybe a quick trip on a Saturday afternoon would work though.

I can take some vacation or something, like when we played for an afternoon in Yankee Springs.
