Level 3 rides will include rutted double track, and uneven roads. These may be rocky and difficult at times. A 1200GS or similar bike will feel heavy in this terrain, and will require an experienced rider. A moderate rider on a 650cc bike will be able to maintain 20 to 30 m.p.h. without a load. Little or no single track will be present on a level 3 ride. You may encounter moderate water crossings (less than knee high). Expect higher average speeds on easy sections of the route.

Ride Description:

 I would like to ride out to Strode's Pond this Saturday.  It is kind of a large cow water hole, but there are fish in it.  (Well there use to be)  It is commonly used by my family as a picnic area.  We were there today to roast hotdogs.
