I'm putting this one on the calendar.  It has been too long since the DRZ has been out of my yard.

Is anyone interested in riding single track at NATRA in Westpoint, TN for a few hours Friday on the way up? It can be as easy or hard as the group wants.

You must be a member of NATRA before arriving. See website for details

I started a ride thread. Don't pollute this one with NATRA stuff.

Updates in the first post, along with GPX files.  Limit of four file attachments, so the waypoints are in this post.

Okay, lessons learned from the pre-ride yesterday.....

  • This is a fantastic route that we have planned.  The morning is classic TNDD from the official map, and the afternoon is the best of Ken's Hickman Loop.
  • Probably 85% of the route has some shade over the road.  Lots of cool vistas, old farms, old houses, etc., and ... water!
  • Most of the creek crossings are just like last year, i.e., no surprises.
  • We are going counter-clockwise this year, so the swim hole is different — shallower but the water is crystal clear.

It's a long route, so we have to get moving early and keep moving, at least until lunch.  For this reason, I backed up the start time to 8:00am.  We can take a more leisurely pace after lunch.

I have a reservation for a group of 20 at the Beacon Light Restaurant for 12:00pm.  We need to leave Meriweather campground at 8:00am.  Please have enough fuel to go 60 miles to the first gas stop.

I'm looking forward to it.  It's going to be a great ride and camp weekend!

I imported tracks and waypoints into Locus Map for Android and everything works and looks just fine.

Now to decide if I run my worn out tires for one more ride or change them now. One of life's toughest decisions.

All the creek crossings are clear and cold (and refreshing!). There's only a short section that has a couple of monster mudholes... that is where your quest will take you.  :)

I'll add a few previews as I get them downloaded.

(Sorry for the poor audio/video quality...I need to adjust the exposure setting and figure out another mounting point to avoid the excessive wind noise)
