From the vids it doesn't look real hard.

Just got back from the club meeting the ride is going to fantastic and getting better with every sign up. currently 116 signed up not counting 85 members possible. I have helped the mapping of the adventure loop and it is going to be awesome. Lakes, summits, dirt, twisty bumpy back roads, desert mines all kinds of cool things. All funds going to a great cause to save our riding lands. If you need info visit http://www.dustdevilsmc.com/Particip...pantFlyer.aspx

The A loop is a true A loop with two hill climbs that are a washed out rock soft dirt mess. I have cleaned it the last 4 times but I have watch several buddies take two or three tries and they are all pretty strong A riders.

B loop is less challenging but does have a couple of sections that will bring a little challenge t a B rider.

Adventure loop is perfect for big twins to big singles no real challenges mostly two track dirt, county and non county roads. twisty pavement and some highway.

Looks like we are going to have music Friday in the parking lot and Saturday at the banquet. Air races on Sunday with lunch.

Should be a great event hope we see some more people sign up for the adventure loop I plan on running sweep both Sat. and Sun.


Hope that answers your questions if you have more let me know I will do my best to answer them.

going also

May do the Adventure Loop on a super motard...haha, don't know if I am up for miles and miles of A rider trails. Should be a great time and it is a fund raiser for a great cause: public land access and use through BRC and riders rights through AMA. Right on Reno Dust Devils MC.

Rode parts of the A loop today.
Bring your A-game.

It's dusty out there, should be an epic ride.
