I got one last Dec for xmass, i had a hard time seeing it will riding, a very small screen. I ended up getting a zumo 550, but have not had a chance to try it out yet. I will say the maps are easier to use and the routes are easier to set up with the Delorme...I was going to sell my PN-40 but thinking I will use the two on longer trips as they do seem to compliment one another. The Garmin has a great data base of stuff, gas stations etc....

So far I like it. It can zoom far out and still keep street detail, better than garmen. Tracks are WAY more deteiled. Not so much stright line connecting points, but actual location. I could eveb seen where I parked on a curb of a street.

Screen is a bit small but I go for the way better detail and metter tracking/maps.

Adventure Ride - Trumbull Peak, Sunday Sept 19th
We just scouted the route to Trumbull Peak this past Sunday and it looks great! Click the picture to the right to get an idea of the view we will enjoy while eating lunch on the trail! Be sure to bring your camera!

99% of this ride is very friendly beginner level riding. The final 1/2 mile climb to the top of Trumbull Peak has a grade about as steep as a mountain driveway. It is very ridable for a beginner with a tiny amount of "go for it" ! The off-road portion of this ride is aprox 45 miles.

We will be meeting at Cycle Specialties at 8:30AM with the ride starting at 9:00AM. We will also be stopping in Coulterville at 10:30AM for anyone that would like to meet up. Be sure to pack water, camera and lunch!

Maybe see you there..
Whats up everyone..... Darren let me know I needed to check in. I had no idea we had a thread dedicated to Stanislaus, Mariposa, Tuolumne etc!

The ride to Trumbull Peak is pretty easy. The final 1/2 mile is alittle steep (like a driveway) but everything else is easy.

Bob - Bring the KLR.

Andrew - Howz it going my man?! It'll be great if you can make it out tomorrow!

Ride leaves Cycle Specialties at 9:00. We should pull in to Coulterville around 10:30.

Bring a lunch, water and a camera. The views rock!

I'll definately be there in the AM. I will be riding my DR350 up to Coulterville and meeting you guys there. I put a new seat pad on today... hopefully it will be a little more comfy for these longish rides. Also bought a new MX helmet and goggles today so I should be a little more comfortable in the dirty stuff than with my full-face street helmet.

I'll have a GPS for making a track of the ride and putting it up on my website. I love riding/driving in this area so this should be fun!

Yes, a track will be nice as I originally wanted to go but instead "get" to go to the inlaws for lunch......

Pics from today's ride

Trumbell Peak lookout station in Stanislaus National Forest.


Only thing taking up residence here these days...


True story... was gonna pee right there... until I looked down and saw him literaly about a foot from my legs. Needless to say, I found another place to do my business because that spot was obviously taken.

Was a fun ride. Good turnout. Really dusty though.

I'll try and get a track log up on my website tomorrow evening.

PS. Next ride is Sunday October 24th.

Not sure where just yet. I may go scout a loop on the county roads at Clear Creek next weekend.

Darren mentioned the Donner Train Tunnels too.

Both ideas sound pretty awesome!

Anyone else have a ride idea?

Here is a link to one of the Clear Creek rides from the south bay group. At the end I believe there is a GPS track.

As promised... gpx of Sunday's ride to Trumbull Peak uploaded to my site... http://www.1darren1.com/home/gpx-files-of-adventures

Unfortunately, this knuclehead did not turn on his GPS until well into the ride. What we did was start in Coulterville and take Dogtown Rd all the way to Greely Hill Rd and then to Old Coulterville Rd. The track picks up several miles up Old C Rd when we stopped for our first break. Well actually I wasn't a knucklehead... my bike was the only one there with a kickstart and by the time I was on my bike ready to start the starting procedure, everyone else had pushed their magic button and was ready to go and my gps was deep in my tankbag.

A couple more pics...
