If I didn't already have a trip planned to Colorado that week I would've been happy to be there.
Do you have a guess on roughly road to dirt for these routes, just ballpark.

Re: Arkansas ADV Ride Aug 24-26

Looking fun...having never ridden that area, it's just squiggly lines on a map to me right now, but it still looks fun.

A bit more than a month to go.

I would guess it to be about 80 dirt and 20 pavement.

Re: Arkansas ADV Ride Aug 24-26

There is a gate that will be locked, or it has been at County road 41 which is before the 25 marker on the posted map. You can easily ride around it to the county road. I'm not sure who gated it or why, but I have been through there many times and just ride through the trees to the left of the gate. Also, the road called Monistary road will have a sign that says dead end, just ignore that sign and keep going. Don't know why it's there, but it's not true! This road is really good and on a smaller bike like a 450-690 you can air it out! There are some erosion berms that are quite fun, but pay attention as the road washed out and you have to route around to the left to avoid the 8' deep washout! It is marked, but pay attention...

Well said.

I'm really looking forward to the report from this. I'm jealous, but happy for you guys. Living vicariously through others.
