Man Skinner, I thought I was lazy. I'll dug around for you for the good of the sport!

This is some information from the DRN forum...
http://www.dirtrider.net/forums3/showthread.php?t=104207&highlight=byron
There's a "Dual Sport" ride at Byron on November 6th

We run some roads, mostly gravel, but we need bikes to be street legal

looking. I was the one that gave the riders meeting last year and what I

said was "we have to have bikes looking legal, we cannot have MX bikes

with no lights on the roads and expect to keep having events". The area

we run in is growing more and more just like every other little town. So

the more we can do to keep towns people happy, the longer we can put on

events.

I was amazed at the number of people that were upset with us for not

letting them run with MX bikes with no lights. I know it's your problem

if the cops stop you as far as tickets go, but people don't understand

that the cops will come back to the club and ask us why we let none

legal bikes go on public roadways. If that was to happen, you can bet

the next year they will be out checking around for the same thing to

happen. So if make people have lights and they look "legal" , it justs

helps. Knock on wood, we only run a couple of gravel roads and have

never had problems for over 30 years, but it only takes one time to

wreck an event.

Anyway:

This years event should be about a 25 mile loop with about 4 miles of

road. It should be fun for everyone. If you rode last falls or the

spring event, this will be different trail and maybe a little more open.

For the people that rode the Spring Enduro, it will be the majority of

the second loop.

If you would like a flyer or more info, please email me at

forestcityriders@hotmail.com

The trail will consist of fields, gravel roads, single track and "quad sized" trails. The course is laid out for fun. There are also "Hero" sections with technical riding.

Take IL 2 two miles south of Byron to Townline Rd. and follow the arrows.
