Missouri 2011 Swinging Bridges Ride***Apr 30-May 1***

Time for a Roll Call......April 30 - May 1

Tracks are here

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=674934

I can't believe this is the 4th year. We are going to Start in St. Clair, MO this year and run it backwards. See below for the Friday night Hotel info. I talked with the owner and he is a real nice fella. He says folks can leave their trucks there for the weekend if they are staying there on Friday night. There is also biscuits and gravy for breakfast in the morning to get you going. He does have one request: "Please don't bring your bike in the room." I still have to tweak the route so look on this first post for updates. I will edit as we go.

If you don't know the route try to make sure you have someone to ride with that has a GPS....also Self sufficiency is the Key to Success....tubes, tools, GPS, Maps, etc.....

Here's some historic info on the bridges:

http://www.millercountymuseum.org/bridges.html

Here's the previous year's rides...

2008 Ride http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...light=Missouri

2009 Ride http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...light=Missouri

2010 Ride http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...light=swinging

Sticker design to come - need to look through last year's photos for this year's Mascot......and I think I found it..... I will also have those trails in the ride but these are on Saturday and it is the long day. If you stick to the gravel getting to the Elbow by 6:00 or so should be within reason barring any problems.....

Let's stay safe this year........


Friday Night Hotel- April 29th

Budget Lodging
866 S I-44 Outer Road
St. Clair, MO
636-629-1000

Mention the ride when you make reservations.

Saturday Night Hotel - April 30th

Best Western. Phone number is 573-336-4299
When you call them make sure you get $12 off if you mention the ride. You can cancel 24 hours in advance if you can't make the ride.

For those that want to camp - here's the link http://www.layzday.com/

There is also a primitive camp spot as a waypoint in the file.

and ribs at the Elbow Inn . I will get a hold of Terry and he'll have them cookin' for us....I will call Terry this year though we might get in a little late because Saturday will be the long day now.

Fuel Stops.....I would make sure you have a 130 mile range.

There will be more info and as I mentioned I will update this first post so you won't need to go digging. I still have to make a meeting spot on Saturday AM and Tony K can chime in on a few places for breakfast.

I am sure ready to ride....

Well I'm for sure not going to commit! I jumped in and said I was going the last two years and both shoulders got surgery, one each year. I'm out of shoulders but am not going to jinks myself for this years ride. If I'm going I'll just show up on ride day.

Thanks again Gary for putting this together,
Garry

We had great weather last year and the rains didn't flood us out.......Ashley Creek was navigable and one of the best parts of the ride

Thanks for organizing, always takes more time than you'd think.
