Re: southern MADBR April 13-14

Awesome ride report! Thanks for taking the time to do it. I'm looking forward to doing this southern route. And/or maybe taking the van down and setting up camp in the middle and riding a few loops or something. I'd be up for that. My parents have a ton of land for camping, leaving truck, bathing i...

Re: southern MADBR April 13-14

Once you see the Potts Jeep trail, you will know that you are approaching the end of this gravel stint. And the next bit of asphalt smack in the middle of the Jefferson Forest was by far my favorite piece of asphalt. Smooth, wide, fast, and trails and camp sites every where. Seriously this would be ...

Re: southern MADBR April 13-14

The middle picture above is Eggleston before Newport. The third is of Mountain Lake and it was very low.

I added three pics below which go with my first bit of a ride report above.

Re: southern MADBR April 13-14

I'm about half way thru the 3rd leg. I started from Dublin at rt 100, but I am exhausted!!! The 3rd leg is at least 50% gravel. More than the paper map shows. My Garmin is poo but luckily I have the tracks on my phone. No way would you be able to follow the route by paper map. Too many unmarked road...

Re: southern MADBR April 13-14

The weather two weeks ago was a no brainer no go.
I plan on using this route to ride to Hatfield and back. Maybe while camping. At any rate I will enjoy 80 degree weather.
