Of course, there are a few different versions of these available on the net, Moose Racing makes one and so does Enduro Engineering, but the BZR model is the best. Its made by a guy in our club.

Just a reminder that there will be primitive camping at the start area.

No charge for camping.

Come Friday afternoon and camp the weekend.

Melting fast though the ground is still covered.

Roads are mud season, the Town has a Road Closed sign right before my house.

how primitive is the primitive camping going to be? Can there be campfires in camp areas or only at the club bonfire? Are there bathroom facilities or port-a-potties there? I am assuming showers are unlikely but I thought I'd ask while I was at it...

The camp area is a big mowed field. You can set up a tent or bring a camper/RV/toyhauler. No hook ups of any kind for camper/RV/toyhauler.

There will be port-a-potties. We are looking into wash stations as well.

No open fires allowed. There will be one big bonfire for everyone to enjoy.

Al, it's just a big field:


What I am wondering before I drop $260 for a weekend ride is will it be "Mrs Trip" friendly?... ie: accommodate a relaxed pace? (OK...that means slow...)

Very very "Mrs. Trip" friendly.

Main route is all town maintained dirt roads and tar roads.

We like SLOW! Keeps the neighbors happy.

Ride at your own pace. We will sweep the entire route to ensure stragglers make it back.
