Re: 2017 MexTrek #6, Oct 26th to 29th 2017

I will lead a group Thursday morning to Santiago, through Laguna de Sanchez and Rayones then on to Galeana. This route will be at least 220 miles. If we encounter rain in the mountains, we will probably detour around the higher elevations adding as much as 30 miles to the route.

This group will be limited to about eight riders.

We will be following Trail Boss’ Gold Standard route south of Laguna de Sanchez. This is mostly Class 2, but there are some short Class 3 sections. I do not recommend this route for any bike larger than a 690/701.

The Pemex station in Rayones was closed the first weekend of September. As we do not know if gas will be available there, your bike would need at least 130 mile fuel range.

All riders in this group will be expected to wear protective gear. Minimum gear consists of off-road boots, knee, elbow, shoulder and back pads and of course, helmet. Also all bikes should be equipped with a toolset including a socket to fit your sparkplug, spare sparkplug, sockets or wrenches to remove front and rear wheels, tire tools, and spare tubes. All bikes should be capable and riders comfortable cruising an honest 65mph.

Send me a pm if you are interested in joining this group. I will be traveling most of the next 2 weeks, so don’t get frustrated if you don’t get a quick response.
