Come on! You guys have been riding for over 2hrs! Where's our updates?!?!

If the weather there is anything like the weather here, it's a great day for a ride.

You're too late - unless you started hauling ass south now. They are probably stopped for lunch somewhere as the ride started this morning. And much to my dismay - without me!

The part of the ride I did was awesome. I had to bug out early and get home. Craig did a fantastic job of laying it out. I'm planning on going back next weekend and riding parts of it again.

The campground is a nice place and very appreciative of the group being there. Those of you that missed out need to put this on your must-do list for next year.

Thanks to those that put this ride together.

Thanks for posting up some pics! How many bikes were on the ride?

That bridge looks much steeper and scarier in person!

Yours is much better than the Google maps Version

Brad next time put something good in your wee flask. If not, I'll still drink it

Had a good time riding and bs'ing. Thanks for putting the route together.

Packed up in a pretty good rain but less than a half hour on the road it was clearing up for a beautiful ride home. Managed to avoid traffic on 60 and run it at a pace it was intended to be done at
