Anybody interested in a easy DS ride in the Detroit, Mill City, Idana, area?
The ride will be for big bikes, side cars, two-uppers,Newbies, foot draggers, old people (that want to have fun) or anybody else.I'm thinking next spring but have to wait for the OMRA planning meeting.
We'll have a lot of check points at gas stations, restruants, or places that want us there. The ride sections will be 20-50 mi. with set times for the check points. We'll have more skill games than chance games. I'm thinking of a check that would scale the bike and rider(s) and give points for weight. Also we would have a lowball hand going at the same time that would have a substantial award. That way if you where having a terrible day you might still be in the hunt.
The course would go to vistas,waterfalls, lakes, and any place that has a photo op. We'll have gravel,single lane pavement, maybe good dirt two track. Probably no trail, but you could venture off course because resets will be more obvious.
I'm looking for input if anybody has expirence in this area. Dive, you were thinking of a ride east of Salem awhile back. Have you been up in this local and have any ideas? I need a place for a start/finish that has facilities (port-a-potties if I have to) and room for Motor homes and camping......... Danno....Thinking of calling it "Hatcher's Chicken Run" or "The Scardy Cat Ride" so as not to be too intimidating......
Dawn and I went scouting up out of the Detroit area Sunday...What a beautiful part of Oregon! Saw some great sights and thinking of going back this weekend!
