Welcome to the Scaredy-Cat Ride site!

Due to personal reasons, Dan will no longer be organizing the Scaredy Cat Ride. It was fun while it lasted!

What:  an easy adventure-bike ride targeted at larger, bikes and sidecars, but any dualsport bike will do fine. The ride will consist of gravel and pavement only. This is not a 'typical' dualsport ride, but a ride where you have to think, plan your routes and enjoy.  Think of it as a mapped, scavenger-hunt ride, with rollchart backups and options. We will also have a single rollchart loop too, if you want something more typical.

Who: Anyone from newbies to experienced riders, with an adventure-touring, scavenger-hunt theme.

Where:  Just 6 miles north of Detroit, Oregon at Fox Creek Campground. Click HERE and HERE for the two maps to get there.

When: September 12, 2010

Why:  because we want to, we love riding in our public forests and it's fun!
