Saturday: Terlingua to Presidio and cross into Mexico at Ojinaga and visit Peguis canyon and head back ***will need passports but no other docs*** Time permitting, go back into USA, enter the park from Terlingua and ride Maverick road to Santa Elena Canyon(decent dirt with some sand washes but nothing too difficult really)

Please let me know if you would consider these two rides
John, I know we're straying a long ways from Starbuck's, but a couple of us from Austin on BIG GS's have to make an annual pilgrimage through Pinto Canyon (I like it better south to north)...AND lunch at El Patio in Presidio. Saw your later post about Peguis Canyon...while it's a good ride up the mountainside, been there a couple of times so not a huge attraction for me.

Maybe we get our heads together on other destinations as well, like Old Ore Road, etc.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

I think JT mentioned it already but those of you crossing into Mexico will have to have your Texas state registration because your license plate on that will be checked against the VIN on it as well.

This is becoming almost standard practice at most Mexico crossings.

When I rode from San Antonio to Guatemala a few weeks ago I went through the same process at Nuevo Laredo.

When I processed into Guatemala they wanted to see my state registration as well (same reason: numero de placa vs VIN on one piece of paper)

I think your Friday plan is pretty good...never tried the back road from Candelaria toward Valentine.

This looks like it’s worth a download and just in time for Around the Bend.

Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

With enough interest I am happy to lead another "Dos y Dos" ride same as I put on when I helped run the rally in 2015 and 2016. The idea was sub 200cc bikes and under 200 miles, hence "2 and 2". But, its open to any bike and rider, with 1st timers the emphasis.



We trailer in the A.M. to the east side of the park, a 55 minute drive. You can ride this if you're inclined. Unload at Rio Grande Village campsite. Make a 50 or so mile loop on River Road east to the Mariscal Mercury Mine, regroup, visit the rock pools at Ernst Tinajas, regroup, look over the overlook into Mexico at the Boquillas Canyon crossing, and end the afternoon with a soak in the hot springs on the Rio Grande.



This is a great ride for less adventurous riders who don't feel comfortable riding 200 mile days, folks on smaller bikes, bikes with limited fuel range (street legal 2 strokes?), and less miles if the weather is really cold. Total mileage is 85, with 2 opportunities to opt out or /and get gas at RGVillage.



Probably this will be a Friday ride. Any takers?



Peter


This looks fun and perfect for a big bend newbie like me. How much dirt is involved? Hopefully a fair amount.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

Finally paid up! Sorry to be the laggard but I took a new job which is great but maxing out my time.

Time to ride!

If the creek don't rise I plan to be there & if folks are interested I'll do my usual "no one gets left behind" easy pace ride on Friday.

Or maybe Shadman & I should combine because the Dos Y Dos is starting to sound like the same concept?

My last shout out to anyone in the Houston area looking to split gas and driving to BB. I have room for two more bikes/people if needed. Otherwise, see y'all there.
