Sunday the 21st.....Boon Run.

When - Sunday the 21st (yea I know I screwed the post title up)

Place - 7mile staging area

Time - 9am

The ride - start at 7 mile staging area and ride the south 1/2 of Lincoln Hills up to Lincoln Bridge. Then hop on the MCCCT trail north to Boon for gas and munchies. Then depending on how many riders we have left ie ran out of gas, broke down, bailed out, got lost.....we will either head back via the trail or hit some sled trails back to the veichles. Total mileage including riding in circles trying to figure out where we are at is usualy around 80-85 miles give or take. Should be fun

So far there are about 6 peeps confirmed.

Platted bike recomended but not necessarly needed "wink wink" Gas mileage should be at least 40-50 miles to a tank.

This depends on the weather of course. I aint riding in the cold and the rain. Thats just one strike too many. Ill ride in the cold, Ill ride in the rain, But not at the same time....Brrrrr.

I doubt very much that you'll see the 'sled' tracks in the parking lot this time, but heck this is michigan we're talking about.
If you do see sled tracks, our group is in real trouble as we'll be riding in the U.P. at the same time as your ride.

Sure is tempting, even have a good weather forecast for Sunday. Only thing standing in my way is the 12th annual Haloween dress up party the night before. :laugh: No sleep and all of those shrimp, tenderloin, etc. may make me a bit sluggish. May just throw the chest protector, boots and helmet on and ride in Drag. :yikes:

Hi guys,

I'm new to Michigan (having moved from Ontario in June) and would love to get out and join in on a local ride. I'm definitely suffering from bike withdrawal and am hoping to be able to get a pass from the wife and kids this weekend to sample some fine MI dirt.

Most of my riding back in Ontario was singletrack and northern ontario rocks, roots, mud and more rocks - in other words - enduro type stuff. A typical day out for us would be about 75-120 miles.

I run with a Clarke tank so range won't be a problem. My bike is also MI street plated.

Let me know if you're OK with a tag along?
Thanks,
Barry

Work has returned me to Michigan for a bit. May have to drag the 500 out to clear its throat. Haven't ridden in a month, work sucks.

Sounds like my "new riding buds" will be a lot like my old ones from the the great white north!

I'm looking forward to it and am about 90% certain I'll be able to make it.

Thanks for the post on directions, YZMan400. I've joined the ccc and got the map. I'm assuming it's the lot at 7 mile and M-37 on pg 24 of the mapbook?

Hey Wolf Child...It look like the closest town is "Wolf" Lake...You don't "own the town" and the only local gas stop, do you?????? :cool:

What's you best guess in travel time from close to the Silver Dome to there (about 2.5 to 3 hrs?)

Yep thats the 7 mile and M-37. You got it.

As for drive time..I have no ideal. BUT SNDMN may be coming and he lives near New Brighton. Maybe the 2 of you can carpool. If your interested I can get ya in touch with him.
