Re: NW Arkansas - Road Ride (non-Epic) - 8-9-10-11 October 2015

I'll see if I can get the weekend off. Where we stay isn't a big deal to me and I don't mind sharing a room. Jerry and I shared a room last year as did most folks, that worked out well.

It's possible if I go then I can take that trailer spot off your hands. I'd ride up to your place, about 2.5 hours away. I don't mind going the whole way on my own if that doesn't work but I'd also trailer my bike. I have room on the trailer for 2-3 bikes also and will be coming from the Austin area if I am able to get the time off.

Since I can't get Saturday Oct 10 off from work disregard everything I've said up to this point. Hope y'all have fun, it's a great place to ride.

Arrrrgg...

I can truck my bike or ride, only question is condition of my tires....

Highway 23 is actually the PIG TRAIL, but it is presently closed to thru traffic due to a washout from the river around the Turners bend area. Highway 7 is very scenic and a fantastic ride, but not quite as crazy twisty.

Re: NW Arkansas - Road Ride (non-Epic) - 8-9-10-11 October 2015

It’s been over a week since we agreed “when” (8-9-10-11 October, remember?) and asked the question “where.” So in the nine days hence, the opinions voiced are……..

Harrison – 3 votes

(Other preference was Eureka Springs, but were from people who subsequently said they do not expect to attend……….)

Makes it easy – HARRISON it is.

Going cheap – here are my ideas:

Days Inn has rooms then for $159 for the 3 nights including tax……if you pay now….. ($187 otherwise)…and includes “complimentary breakfast”……


There is also a locally owned “Family Budget Inn” – total of $167 for 3 nights – and "A complimentary continental breakfast is served each morning at this hotel. " And no cancellation penalty up to the day before (i.e., 7 October)!


I’m thinking FAMILY BUDGET INN.

JETTECH01 and CDC – thoughts?

Neil

Re: NW Arkansas - Road Ride (non-Epic) - 8-9-10-11 October 2015

Just got back on Wednesday from up there. Temps have already moderated, and it was wonderful riding. A few of the tree species are beggining to drop leaves. By the time you all get up there the colors should be really fine.

Re: NW Arkansas - Road Ride (non-Epic) - 8-9-10-11 October 2015

Great route from our last Ozarxx trip: http://ozarxx.org/ozarxx_routes/OzarXX15Route.htm

The Traveler's Inn in Eureka Springs is a nice meet location for outside activities (Bldg. 4), and Gordon's in Jasper is another inexpensive option.

Hoping to be there on the 14th for this ride based at Gordon's now for years.

Neil;
I can not commit at this time, I will expect (if going) to pay up when I arrive, when the time gets closer (a week or so) I will commit and let you know if I need a room or not. Sorry but the calendaer is filling up quickly. Reunions and daughters graduation from College take priority of course.

No problem.

We should get together sometime for a Sunday ride - I'm in Houston, too (northeast beltway 8). And frankly, I'd love to see a Motus in person.

Thanks for the email.

Re: +++ NO GO +++ NW Arkansas - Road Ride (non-Epic) - 8-9-10-11 October 2015

Sorry it got canceled, Neil. I'd love to go to AR again so keep me in mind if you plan to go and I'll let you know if it's good for me or not. I'm on a regular work schedule now where I can plan ahead (can't plan next year yet though).

Interesting that this is cancelled - just this past week, I interviewed for a new position (still in GE) - but it is in North Carolina!

Deals Gap! Blue Ridge! Mountains!

Just up there earlier today. There were endless processions of bikes in groups. Perfect riding weather and crisp nights this week.
