Post by Rut Row » Thu Feb 08, 2018 4:46 pm

aka the Cool Kids trip. This will be a weekend trip. Since the other guys are doing south to north, we go north to south. I think this is a three day trip +/- to do the north 1/2.

I'll be riding my FZ-09 Adventure. We are doing cheap ass hotels. :thumbup:

For those that want to ride together, we'll meet here at 0800 Friday morning 5/11. Kickstands up at 0830 sharp will put us at the gas station in NY at noonish 234 miles later.

McDonald's, 517 E Main St, Emmitsburg, MD 21727

Meeting Fri AM to ride up:
  • Wingfixer
  • Junior
  • Rut Row
  • Juicebox
Everyone else either be at the gas station or the restaurant noonish Friday

Kwik Fill, County Rd 115, Lindley, NY 14858
The Lindley Roadhouse, 12 County Rd 115, Lindley, NY 14858

They have camping and hotels flagged between sections so the first day of riding would be about 200 miles. It is about a 4 1/2 hour ride to the starting point so the first day may be a butt burner followed by a gravel rod cruise. There is an observation tower shown as an option so if we are ahead of the game we can do that. Depending on work, I may take an extra day off and go up early. There is a campground nearby with rustic cabins.

btw, on the second day there are two options on this route they flag for experts only. They are roads so they can't be too bad :shrug:

You can consider a ride up to the DAMN Michaux basecamp the night before and launch from there, maybe an hour for most folks. The official route passes within a few miles of my place.

What are you using as starting point?
