I'd like to join you guys...could make the July date, but not the June. If you guys go in June, I'd be interested in the August date too. If there is any interest in putting that together. I have been staying at the Timberland up in Shelburne...just before the Maine border when we are up there. Nice young folks bought it a couple years ago..about 15 miles from the auto road I would guess. Nice pool....and the guy delivers all the crap you really don't want to put on your bike to the site for you.

Got room for one more?

That's a good route. I'm familiar with most of it.

I'm with ShrineClown - July/August work for me. I may be able to do June, but unlikely.

Are you just doing the sunrise, or is there some kind of ride planned? Big bike or small bike? Just one night - correct?



Either way, it sounds like a nice idea.

I'll know by the end of the week whether I can do June or July. Right now it looks like June.

Big bike friendly route - no trails, just unpaved road. Sticking close to legal speed limits, nice and easy ride.

I'll take my 650GS.

Anyone has a problem with Moose Brook State Park in Gorham? If not, lets take a headcount and make a reservation for 1-2 sites. I like that campground because it is private, bike friendly, and there are restaurants/store nearby - less crap to bring on the bike. 15 minutes to the Autoroad.

The ride, as you can see from the gpx file, covers some rural NH towns, some nice views, and a bit of pavement up north.

Gorham has either an American grill or an awesome Italian place - Saladino's. Homemade deserts, homemade pasta, risotto, ....

So far the IN list reads:

Pilothouse51
HenryMartin
Kdennan
Baiku? - what bike

The state park is fine, your description sounds good.

I'd like to ride the WR for the mountain dirt roads, but it would be a struggle to climb M.W. I'll take the DL-650.

I will be coming from central VT, so I probably would just meet up with everyone at the campground, as long as everything goes as I have planned.

Art, would you like to meet along the way or at the start?

Oh, after riding my WR to Jamaica, VT, I don't think it would have any problems climbing that hunk of rock. It will not be comfortable though.

Probably meet en route. How about the Wilton P.D. parking lot, on the left just before the bridge?

HM- 8ish meeting time also works for me I will be riding my DL1000. I like the route you have planned. Maybe come back through Stowe on the way home?

I asked a buddy from work to see if he wanted to come not sure about that yet. Also I believe Rouge Ranger is going to join us at the campground so your probably safe to add him to the list.


Also on another note for future sunrise rides I would be game to do it again. Maybe by the other dates we can have the Grandparents watch the Kid and I can bring the wife. She's a great tour guide as she worked on Mt. Washington a couple of summers during high school.

Sweet!

Art, yes, the PD works fine. There used to be a way around Wilton, but it is now gated so I have to go through Wilton anyway.

PH - sure, I'll be the slow rider on the 650 single

Lets confirm this weekend and then book some sites. Before I fork money over for a couple of campsites, is this RAIN OR SHINE?

oh what the heck I'm in unless there is a hurricane.

I really only have one choice when it comes to which bike I am gonna ride. The other is a 750 but currently needs a lot of work and I am sure as heck not gonna push it. Besides leisurely sounds like my kinda pace anyway

Henry, I'm in for booking/paying. If the weather turns horrible, I might bail, but my money won't. I'll pay up front.

Hey Henry, Count me in. I'll either tie in with you cats when you breeze by here( as soon as I download a GPX file reader and look at your route) or meet you at Moose Brook. Rain or shine, might bail if it is pouring but my money is in. Another really good restaurant is SALT pub and Libbys Bistro, both in Gorham. The Bistro is kind of spendy $20-35 entrees , but excellent. The Water Wheel on RT2 in Randolph or Tea Birds in Downtown Berlin do pretty good breakfasts. It will be a blast.

I'm interested in this. I'll know in a week or so if a ride scheduled for that same weekend will be a goer or get rescheduled due to some extended major engine work on one inmate's bike. If a goer, I'll bring the TDM. Perhaps meet up with you Jon in VT and ride over if your up for that.
