Ride out 55 and play on some of the gravel - Like Sauerkraut Rd or some of the county roads?

Where you coming from Rob? I meeting some Cat Herders in Madison county in the morning. From there where heading north through Culpeper and meeting some SMIBers at the intersection of rt 229 & hwy 211 just north of Rixeyville. From on into Marshall. So if you're south of Marshall, give me a shout and we'll figure out a place to meet up. Or I'm sure some people will have some kind of rides heading out after lunch.

Rob, if you are coming from Haymarket, try hooking up with these guys somewhere along the route as they will be the closest riders to you heading to the RTE...

SoPaRider found the same ice in Michaux State Forest PA, Mountain Gravel crunching on Saturday (plan A), right down the shitter.


Hey HBN, If I presented you with a .zip with gis data, could you turn it into a .gpx? you have gmail.

Maybe head south towards 56 again?

That ride we did last summer might be pretty decent. Campbells Mtn rd and wind around on the gravel.
I didn't make through Afton last night. Ended up leaving a little later and didn't feel like trying it in the dark, especially since I didn't know what I would find.

Water doesn't look terribly deep from the video, but it was about 6" over the cylinders on the GS. Only problem is that the air intake is about 3" over the cylinders. Oops. At least it was December. It took Matt and I more than a few minutes to drag that heavy pig out of the soft bottom, frigid creek. Thanks to the kindness of a good samaritan we were able to drain the oil and put in fresh stuff to get home. At night. While soaked. In December. Twas a nice cold 2 hour ride home.
