Not going to make it after all. Have fun and ride through bogs far too murky for your own good.

Looks like I'll be attending on sunday. My bike made it up there two years ago with a good friend at the controls while I nursed a broken collarbone.. Now, it's my turn.

Scoots packed and just finshed loading a nice six or so hour touring mix of paved and gravel roads for the ride over tomorrow. Plan to leave around noon and arrive by early evening.

Be aware that the Woodstock and Bridgewater police will be out with their radar guns making sure nobody speeds through their towns. If the posted speed limit is 30 don't even think of going 31. They take speeding seriously in their towns.

...and they're sneaky, too. I'm not a big fan of Woodstock's new patrol vehicle, which does not have a light bar. So just make like the locals and toe the line...especially when it goes 35 -> 25 in Bridgewater.

Looking forward to the ride and keeping my fingers crossed on the weather.

just so let everyone know, just a couple class 4 roads, very wet, but most of the ride will be dirt roads, so larger bikes with knobby tires will work! The ledge section is closed due to a large tree in the way!!

Looks like I won't be able to make it but I'm hoping that DARC 3 is a charm. Have fun tomorrow!

Absolutely great ride put on by Fred and the Darc gang. A special thanks to everyone for putting up with our 2up non-sense.

We had a great time. Except for the single track episode, we did pretty well.

Here are some photo's:








Coffee break in Hartland four corners.




Relief break...


I worked up a good sweet on this section.








Our fearless leader.


Excellent lunch choice.

Unfortunately I forgot to fully charge the hero so I missed the good stuff.
