    I'll try:)

    No GPS for me, as I take my biking seriouis, away from the high tech end, by choice. Pilot, Coastal sailor has given me enough GPS in life, all good and requiured, but I take my biking simple by choice. Guess its my Airhead roots and thats funny, becasue my Airhead has a GPS. Can't win here. So far, my GSA is high tech free. I love my maps. I'll find my way. Randy PS; winning a bike, I'm a non likely candiadate, but IN the match Thanks Visian/Newstar and others for the hard work, TT too for stepping UP with a F800, so cool...How could one ever beat that? .RBear

    If you're riding to the rally from the PNW, you might be slabbing on I-90.

    Take a break and get out into beautiful and remote country... see if you can find Kit Carson, and score some GS BS points for eating the best burger ever at Matt's Diner.

    The "hard" ride....

    this is actually the relatively easy part of the hard ride... we'll be riding some coal country that requires special permission.

    Thank you to Chris Prosick of Hermy's BMW...

    The ride will be Friday, July 22, leaving the rally site at 8am-ish.

    scorebooks

    Scorebooks will be out approximately two weeks prior to the rally.

    Don't want to give away too much info before the start date!

    The Seven Mountain Ramble

    One of the rides in the GS Giant event is the ALTrider/GiantLoop run to the Seven Mountain Ramble.

    This one's for bigger dogs, however, if you stay on the main loop trail you can still have a great time. In fact, this loop is one of the Adventure Detours you can take as you ride to Bloomsburg.

    You get 20 Giant points for riding the loop, an additional 10 for riding one or more of the hero loops.

    Here are some pics of a recent ride led by the same peeps who will be handling the setup for MOA rallygoers.

    Signup at the AltRider site... the ride leaves from Bloomsburg Fairgrounds on Wednesday morning.





    and a hero loop...

    That hero route looks like some tasty single track. Man this is going to be one great week. I just bought a GoPro Hero camera too boot.

    Coming in late... I don't have any good shots of me riding my current GS however did ride around Hunter Mtn last Sunday scouting for the MAX BMW Dual Sport School and an expansion of Color in the Catskills.

    Here's my tracks. There's 1,600' of vertical in there plus a grass flat track that was a real hoot.
