You like more dirt n' dust than paved roads? You may like this ride. Waether forcast is looking good. Headed towards Mason first and then about 115 miles w/o a fuel stop back to Fred. Can stop at Castell for a late lunch.

The Ride:
The loop is about 165ish miles and mostly dirt and sometimes pretty loose sand at times. We'll be on our lighter bikes (sub 650cc) for this ride and pace will be swift at times. This route should have some roads we typically don't use for DS so hopefully some newish stuff to some of us. Bring food for lunch on the route (just in case). Route subject to change some and may wind up in Llano (for fuel & food). The ideal participant can use a GPS with good way-finding skills.

When & Where:
Sunday, 8th 10:00am and ready to start the ride at 10:15am
Fredericksburg, TX Walmart parking lot away from storefront nearest 290. (Let's purchase goods from them while there of course)

Your Bike:
Well maintained and ready to ride. Slime'd tubes and all that good stuff.

Riders Safety gear:
Bring all your best gear and keep all riders safe and injury free. Have any emergency contact info available if needed.

The planned Loop:

A great group of folks showed up for the ride. And a really impressive set of bikes including some new ones.

This loop is about 170 miles and maybe 70% of really nice dirt.

what time did y'all get back to starting point? or, rather, how long did it take to do the loop?

looks like a great way to spend the day.

Mike,

Looks like you put on a fun ride! Wish I lived closer. If you recall, we camped together with Guy at the same location last year at Around the Bend.:thumb:
