North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017
 
So this is the date for our next ride.
This will be an easy run on good gravel roads west of the DFW area. I have a route, but would like to modify it a bit to stop in Muenster for lunch and possibly someplace else. I will keep you posted and get the route posted as soon as I have it worked out.

Not sure what your route plan is but there is a neat little place at 3325'50.43"N 9722'58.91"W on CR 398 I try to hit when I ride up that way.
Kind of a rock crossing and cliff cave thing right on the road. If it has been wet it will have some water crossing it.
Usually hit 397/398/353 - all dirt on the way back from Munster.

I may be in the land down under that week but if not I will be sure to join up with you guys as last month was a lot of fun.

Here is the route for the October 22...

Its called the Muenster Run.... Because I think we are going to stop in Muenster and grab some good German Food!

144 miles.... Should be easy back roads...I have not planned on any water crossings or difficult trails.. Just back county roads and German food.

It should not be hot, It should be a nice October day.

Come and join me...

I will review the route in the coming weeks...and I will modify and update as I always do.

Ok guys... We are coming up on a week out from the ride.

Start letting me know who is going so I can have an idea on how many we will have.

I am looking forward to having a nice German Lunch in Munester!

Might be interested in this ride, have ridden a lot up in that area....having trouble actually opening your file, ( I think my adobe reader is messed up ). Can anyone tell me where this ride actually starts; ...until I get my adobe reader reinstalled?

Thanks

Does Adobe reader open GPX files?

Bandit33 10-12-2017 02:47 PM

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017
 
Well, maybe not,....maybe that is the problem! In any event, can't open the file.

:lol2:

If you have Google Earth installed, that will open it. I think you might also be able to view it in Google Maps if you have an account.

These look like they will do it for free,

I import the file into google maps to view and then transfer to phone.

I remembered I have Garmin basecamp. I now have the route....looks like the ride starts just east of I35 E on 380 in Denton. Thanks for the help.
