We need to get this ride back on the list as it sounds like a good Noob ride. I've been to the crater and up Hunter Mtn. but not Tea Kettle or Racetrack. I suppose we could fumble our way out there without any issues, especially with GPS Tracks. My plan has been to take my new Husky Terra on this ride and pound some sag into the new suspension and also see how many times I can crash this heavy sucker in the silt bed since I'm going sans knobs. If nobody else already familiar with the route volunteers, I will do it. However, it will be the blind leading the blind, or rather noob leading noob. Nah, not that bad. I navigated the TAT so this won't be a problem.

It's this one that was for Friday: Hunter Moutain, Teakettle, Racetrack, Ubehebe Crater -- noob level




Be sure to check page one for Group Rides, info and sign ups.

Yes this was the ride I was most excited about and was on the list.
I want back on!

I have a teakettle to drop off as well.

You will have no trouble finding your way through this loop....as leader...you may want to remind everyone in your group to keep their front tire pressure up as the area around the racetrack is famous for causing flats....the Terra is a perfect bike for this loop....

Hunter Moutain, Teakettle, Racetrack, Ubehebe Crater


I was signed up for this ride also and was really looking forward to it as I have not been to any of those spots. Let's get it figured out and save the ride.

IF I can ride (knee surgery Depending) I will lead a group on this loop.

I wont know until next month what the deal is, regardless I do have GPS tracks that cover this loop (see post 6).

Get someone to lead the ride, if I can do it then we can break it up into two groups for a large group ride.

BUT I wont know until close to the witching hour.

Pickup/truck rentals

Hey Guys, Sampath (Amusedrider) and I were planning to rent a truck and hitch our bikes to DV. Any suggestions on truck and trailer rentals in the SF bay area? Also, is there anyone from around here who has space in the trailer, truck or RV to accommodate us and our bikes. We will of course share the expenses and more over provide amusing company and life times supply of gratitude.

This is an extremely easy route to follow. I would lead it but I am already leading rides on Thu and Fri. This loop is clearly marked on the Death Valley maps and is also marked by signposts. The biggest issue will be how much snow is up on the Hunter Mtn. and South Pass. I've done this route in a crew cab Superduty 2WD. It's all dirt roads, some evil washboard though.

The first time I did this ride was before GPS. Before GPS us old guys used to use a great technology called MaPS.....

I'll be happy to highlight it on a map for whomever wants to lead it.

I also heard that there are a couple washouts to lookout for as well.

South Pass and Hunter Mtn already have ice on them... but still doable.

Just have to get your speed up on the washboards.

Noobs ... Noobs ... Noobs ...

Don't want anyone getting hurt cause they were doing 45 mph to stay on top of the washboards and got twisted out of shape.

If there's ice up there now, it will likely still be there in March

I will set up the ride and share leader responsibilities with my betters should the need arrise. Hunter Mountain had some snow and ice last year, but not a lot. Should be fun on a Heidi! So, I'll wander over to the signup page and get something going.

OK, ride is listed again, on Friday as before. All those deep in dispair, sign up again! I promise not to bail!

Ken
