Saturday 12/29 9AM at Packard's Ramona - kickstands up by 9:15. Here is a chance to try out the new stuff you hopefully will be getting for Xmas or Hanukkah or whatever.

Easy to medium ride suitable for all bikes with 50/50 tires and 85 miles fuel range - suitable for riders with little to some experience. The ride down Culp/Jasper/Grapevine and the beginning of Mason Valley TT has a little sand but just enough to test you not kill you. No tough hill climbs or descents on these trails but you will get a taste of the desert. Should be back in Ramona by 2 depending on stops.

We will be stopping along Rodriquez Trail for a lunch stop so pack a sandwich and a drink. If you have comm's bring em - frequency 146.505
Start: Packard's in Ramona, Black Canyon (dirt) to Mesa Grande (paved) to 78 to 76 to San Felipe Rd to S22 (Ranchita) to Culp/Jasper/Grapevine Trails (dirt)to 78 (paved) to Great Southern Overland Stage Route (paved) to Mason Valley TT (dirt) to Rodriquez TT (dirt) to Banner 78 (paved) to Ramona. 100+ mile loop (about 85 between fuel stops - fuel in Julian).


Weather permitting - it's off if it has been raining because Grapevine and Mason Valley TT are wash's and will not be big bike (or maybe no bike) friendly at that point.

Here is the route on Dualsportmaps.com:

I will be on the 950se - leisure liner

That's cool Craig, I don't want to tell anyone else what to do or change my ride to get more riders. This is the ride I planned for myself and decided to share thinking that others might benefit by learning new trails or feeling safe in numbers. I also don't get butt hurt if my friends ride other rides :)

Everyone is invited, the excitment and enthusiasm of new riders is infectious. I was a noob once...in 1970.... Damn I'm getting old.

Interested. I'm scheduled to work that day... but maybe I will have a deathly sickness that lasts only one day.

We'll see!
