    Maybe for you. I think for us mere mortals it may take a little while longer.

    Van will be the guide. We plan on doing a route with highest "fun" factor. Van guided us last year with about 8 others and everyone seemed to really like it. Even the ones that bailed early said it was a great route. Does the route really matter? After all it's DuPont. It's all goooood.

    Who cares about where you go, when there's SWIMMING at at end?
    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    There are some "John Wayne" trails that I would probably slow everyone down on.

    Such as, if you are going all the way to the top of Joanna [42] or trying Stone Mountain Trail [77], I would be hard pressed to keep up.......although I have done both

    Yes, all of DSF is good, I am riding over this morning for a long ride,

    I thought DSF had over 80 miles of trails, am I misinformed?

    I generally ride 18-20 miles in the park each time I go and don't come anywhere near close to riding them all.

    I very well could be wrong. I just don't know where they would be.

    if you ride approximately 30 miles... and Chuck Norris rides approximately 30 miles...Chuck Norris has ridden more miles than you...approximately.

    I would like to know the route you are planning to take as I am coming with friends in late August. One of our rides last year was the Big Rock->Burnt Mountian ride. Would like to check out the rides that I've seen posted showing the waters falls and rivers. Hope you guys have a great ride Sunday!
