A little more info. I've emailed a few of the people who said they were interested in riding with us. No one has gotten back to me yet.
So, right now its Guyver, Knightstrom, and Kapenagary locked in.
If more people are interested....I'll post up the info.
I don't want to divulge my secret hot spot unless more people are serious.
Here's the plan. We will make a base camp north of Oakhurst, and south of Yosemite. From this location we will ride all day in the surrounding areas that I mentioned in the last thread. At the end of the day we will camp and enjoy.
The camping is primitive....but beautiful. Camp is in a grove of redwood trees. There is a thunderdrop on site (outhouse - not pretty but functional), a great fire pit and enough room for about thirty bikers. No running water or showers. Although, showers can be had at Bass Lake which is about ten miles or so away. There are also hotel rooms in Oakhurst...plenty of restaurants, etc. I've also got a camping shower that I'll bring up.
Knightstrom and I will go up Friday night after work and secure the campsite. I'll have my support vehicle stocked with firewood, water, campstove/kitchen, coffee, chairs, some food, ice chest, outdoor shower and other essentials. I'll be happy to share all this stuff with people who come up. We will do rides Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. People can come and go as they please. It's four miles in from the 41 on a Forest service road (FSR). That would be gravel/dirt. Very do-able for any bike; even an FJR. Most of the day rides will be on pavement; but from the campsite there are some outstanding dual sport trails available - and they should be ridden.
I will also be at the conjunction of the 41 and this FSR at designated times on Saturday morning to guide people to the campsite. I'll also post directions if enough people are interested. That's about it.
Let me know if you wanna go. Talk later.
