CannonRides

Some of you know I host a few rides each season. Rather than clutter up Central with individual ride threads each time one of them comes up, I thought it would be better to deal with it all in one place. Normally I would announce these in the Wisconsin Area Rides/Events thread, but I can see that it will be too difficult of manage some of this over time in that thread due to confusing overlap between Cannon sponsored events.

Since people have been asking about some of this, I guess it is time to get started. The first get-together will soon be on us (I hope)!



I have a lot of tracks out there already that people can ride on their own. This year I have some new material that is either ready to ride or in the works. Some needs a final proof so I can put it up for download.

Once the season starts, I plan to get some weekend dual sport rides coordinated. We had some fun with those in the early season last year.



At least one ride will be set up for less experienced riders that want a comfortable track and pace. (Also avoiding what could be troubling sand for some.) Let me know if you are specifically interested in this kind of ride.



Coordinating these weekend trips gives people the opportunity to show up and ride without having to scout, map, schedule riding buddies, or do much planning for gas and the like.



I've got a few bigger projects going as well and we'll see what happens with those. Looks like some get-togethers will be out of region. Looks like some Canada DS as well. Too early to get into that stuff right now.

If you are interested in joining in on some of these rides, let me know. I'll publish details about individual rides as details evolve.



For now I am trying to gauge the interest in CannonTreks for the season. I'm not sure what is going on with those yet so I need to get a little info to consider for planning. CannonTreks are four day small/medium DS rides that circle the UP. They are limited to 19 riders and are best for more experienced riders as the pace can be fast and the days can be long. RR here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=584986



Step one in this process is to find out if there appropriately experienced riders that have never been on a CannonTrek before that are seriously interested in riding one.

If you have never been on a CannonTrek before, let me know if you are interested. I'll see what kind of response I get and see what I can sort out from there.

PM me if you have never been on a Trek and are interested in it.

If you think you are interested in some of the weekend rides, put a comment in the thread so I can get a feel for the interest.

Putting together some of these things takes much more effort than is visible, so please take that into consideration.

Yes, I think there will be opportunities for TrekVets as well, but I am not to that point yet.

I've decided to stay closer to home next summer and go on more weekend rides in the region. Therefore, I am interested in these rides.

I really appreciate the effort you expend in researching and organizing these things.

Weekend Rides

Weekend rides are good with me. I've got a KLR250 I need to break-in.

Thanks for all you do with these, Bryan. The information and riding you share is superior (joke intended) to what a lot of pro tour provide.

I'd be interested in a weekend day ride similar to the one I attended last year.

I am interested in the weekend rides. I had a great time last spring riding, and met some new riding, mountan biking and dh skiing friends as well.

I'd like one of those slower paced, less experienced CannonTrecks. Ive never been on a ds ride... thats part of the reason that i bought the Enduro bike- to ride DS in da UP.

weekend rides/cannontrek

I would be interested in both the weekend rides and a cannontrek. More the weekend rides due to the tiny amount of vacation I get!!!

Cannon, you once told me that husband/wife duos are not allowed to go on the same Treks together....does this go for the weekend DS rides too?

With my current layoff status, I'm able to ride any day of the week. Never rode a "trek", but would love too. Any 1-2 day DS rides/scouting trips suit me best (funds) in the northern Wisconsin/U.P. area.

Too much stress and aggravation for some couples to deal with over an extended period. I would hope that couples could keep the lid on for a day or weekend ride. Might be better to split them up in the group though.
