BQF 6, The Original Rally Rolls On

DATE: 2/21 - 2/23

RIDES: Friday and Saturday rides; these take majority of day. Sunday short-ride through some various trails.


For the uninformed, we use the following as base camp (Ocean Pond):

http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/osceo...75104&actid=29

The ride will take us through Osceola National Forest. Per norm, plated bike, blah blah blah. Last year we had 2 great group rides at a reasonable pace on Friday and Saturday. Would recommend a bike in the 650 and lower range. KLRs/DRs make it just fine. We didn't hit any super deep sand last year, but sure we'll find some water This event is aimed towards just having fun, eating food, and enjoying the experience.

Food wise; people generally bring plenty of stuff. Ask everyone bring something to contribute. The location has several grills, so last year we did everything from chicken wings to burgers.

It's typically the first weekend of February. I could do 7th-9th.

What's the opinion on 14-15-16? This is a week later than usual, but may fit best for some of us. Also clears some downtime between Polar Bear. I can set it all up again, just may need help getting the keys and place opened up on the 14th. Rest of time I'd be there. Plus, this is a 3 day weekend for many, so may be a little more attractive for some.
