Ride Description:

 Last minute I know.....

I have all day Monday to do as I please so I'm going on a 7 challenge point safari! I plan on leaving from the Chevron @ Beacon light and Hwy 55 at 8:00 a.m, taking Eagle road north on Willow Creek to Johnson creek and east to Horseshoe Bend. I'll be topping off the fuel in H.B. as it will be about 160 miles to the next fuel, which is in Cascade. Along the way I'm going to Hawley mtn LO, Placerville, Scotts mtn LO, Deadwood Dam, Deadwood City, Warm Lake and Horsetheif Reservoir. Should arrive in Cascade about dinner time, I will probably bring snacks to munch on all day but we could be talked into dinner at a restaurant. Then we head south on 55, get off at Smiths ferry and head over to Ola, and south to Sweet, on to Emmett, and continue south until we hit civilization. Unless we are worn out, in which case we can just slab it home on 55.  Mapsource says its 263 miles round trip, with 193 being gravel. In the pic I posted, pink is paved and green is dirt. I want to make pretty good time so I can be home with a beer in my hand and my toes in the pool before dark. While its mostly all gravel forest service roads, I can't vouch for their condition, and the roads getting up to the lookouts may or may not not be big bike friendly, Johnson Creek will be a little bit sketchy with some ruts and baby heads.  I'm on my KLR so I can do anything !
