So, I'm trying to generate some interest for this ride among the various Facebook groups i'm in. Would there be an issue with creating a FB Event, with the information about the ride and a link to here? I don't want to step on any toes.


No problem whatsoever. Share away.

I dont see why would that be an issue. Where is the ride to ?
The October group ride is the James River ride. Its a personal favorite, and a great introduction to adventure riding for the newbie on a medium to large bike.
I'll of course be on the DRZ chasing Richard :)

Riders,

the 1st Saturday ride is this week.

And this month's ride is particularly noteworthy because we are riding across the mighty James River. See the first post in this thread for more details and to download the GPS tracks.

Is there a go around? I'm not sure my tires are qualified for this one. Plus with all the rain, I bet it's pretty deep now.

OR, WITH A FLUX CAPACITOR AND 88MPH YOU CAN TRAVEL TO A TIME WHEN IT IS DRY AND THEN CROSS IT.

With the weather finally cooling off I'm planning on this ride.

Has anyone got a detailed GPX of the route? The GPX link at the beginning of this forum item does not work, and a GPX That I have from Richard G. (Ride 7) just doesn't seem to have enough points.

Hmmm...I'm not sure why the link in the first post wasn't working but I have fixed it now. It will take you to the TXADVRiders webpage where you can find the link to the gpx files. My apologies for the issue.

I’ll prefer to go around instead. I’ll join Gina. Also, A friend want to go too but not the river crossing.
