RGV has gas now?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?
The fun of Peguis is that it is in Mexico, obviously. And is at the end of a 100 miles ride from Terlingua. Fun and rolling hills all along the Rio Grande on the US side on 170.Peguis Canyon Info please???
I did some quick search on the Peguis Canyon but unable to find much detail. All I can find is the scenic overlook or canoe trip option (which may be an option depending on duration and bike/gear safety... any recommendations??). From the looks of it it is similar to Santa Elena Canyon in BB park.
What am I missing?
I will arrive on Thursday 4-5pm. If not too late, I am in.I'm looking for any one who will be in Terlingua on Thursday who might want to ride in BBNP. Maybe Maverick-River Road-Rio Grande Village, and then either backtrack to Talley/Black Gap or just back on pavement depending on time. Alternately ride in BBRSNA if you know the roads.
