    WV Midnight century

    Everybody

    If you dare i would like to invite everybody to take part in the first ever WV midnight century aug 8 (fri night). It will start in Buckeye and cover almost every stitch of trail in the far WV south of the 10 as well as some canal riding. We are also working on a 50 option. for more info check out http:/southwestbikepackinggroup.blogspot.com/2010/07/west-valley-midnight-century.html

    this will be a group ride of sorts. please let me know if you are interested here or the site so i can find a suitable starting area.

    Cheers- Jim

    Sounds interesting. I'm not ready for 100 miles right now, but might be once it cools down. I've been scouting out some "Urban" Trail routes around my area along the Aqua Fria heading north to Lake Pleasant...

    I think the new date is that weekend just an error in matching days to dates. It should be Fri night Aug 6 in other words.
    Yeah Jim, let us know for sure. The only reason I'm 'out' is because I'll be in Flag. I'll be shooting for Kokopelli though.

    still on

    Everybody

    The ride is still a go for tonight. Rain or moonshine. We should meet the folks doing the 50 around 12.30 ish at the Eliot market in Estrela Mountain Ranch. If the canal is soaked we may be a bit slower. Bring a rain jacket, chain oil, and a smile cause it is going to be a good time! Looks like there will be 5-8 of us that i know of this morning. More info now up on the homepage at www.southwestbikepackinggroup.blogspot.com . If you find yourself unable to sleep you can track the group online. Follow the link on the home page.

    See you all there

    VW miles

    Jim,

    Any chance you might have a map of the entire course? I'd like to ride the it all but not familiar with the area and the course. Greatly appreciated.

    maps

    Hello

    I have everything on GPX format, but i dont have the route put together for this ride. I was able to find the picture below. Not much detail, but gives the idea. I will make sure to ride cleanup and make sure nobody gets left behind. Most of the other guys know the area good enough to get out of trouble if they get lost. This is great ride that will explore some seldom ridden trails, and very ridden trails. This is supposed to be a group ride so having fun together is the goal. I will try to break it down more. and put something on the site. I need to get topofusion on my MAC somehow. The Garmin basecamp is very limited, but so are my computer skills. I do have excellent bow staff skills ! Below is an overview of the entire route including PIR. Still not sue if we are going to include it, and the other is all the trails closer up.

    Jim,

    Thanks for the map. Helps a bit. Is this going to be a pack ride or everyone will ride on their own? You mentioned water will be available in places. What do you mean?

    Are you meeting us in Bucky or you are doing the 50?

    Thanks
