I rode the Desert Dash with the San Diego crew this weekend and lots of talk about a big group ride to visit Dana's memorial the second weekend of March.


Will post up details in the next few days.

Which is too bad for anyone interested in visiting his memorial.
I'm going to quote kkug to keep some info here, in this thread, if you guys don't mind: [/URL]

Wtf?? Why? Dana exemplified the Baja spirit.

Who kicked that down?

The memorial ride for Dana is now scheduled for 14/15 June. There has been more updated info on SDAR so I will try and keep news of the ride posted here.

Just heard about an inmate getting back from a big 1,500 miler, hoping to hear more about it soon.

ever wonder what the pacific side from scorpion bay to san ignacio looks like?

it's pretty lonely. and a bit unnerving doing it solo.

Counter Clockwise loop down as far a Larado, up the gulf side as far north as Tecate and then back to CC. Total mileage should be somewhere between 1500 and 1800 miles. Looking for tracks of good single track to hit along the way.... Rock trail, 22 day trail, Jim's trail and Campershell have all been mentioned to me but I am looking for GPS tracks if anyone has them and is willing to share.

Also looking for accommodations along the suggested route that shouldn't be passed up. Thanks for the help. Most trips I have taken down there have been to race... Pre-run, pre-run, pre-run x 10 and then repeat on race day....then head home. Basically I've seen a lot of the race course and not a lot of the true treasures that Baja has to offer. Looking for the "off the beaten path" adventures and good technical single track that we can mix in along the way.

Thanks all for the suggestions, advice, sharing tracks and overall encouragement to just go for it!

Check out the ride report here:
