as long as we get an early enough start we should have enough daylight.
Per weather.com PM showers.....30% chance. Start early, get back to camp earlier for more beer and food.
In the AM, are we on our own getting to the start, or is the 50 miler a loop from start to finish? We are with one car, 2 people, and wouldn't mind having it used as a drop car (space for three bikes, three people). Any chance there is a GPX file / Google maps track available, or is a printed map usually sufficient?
It's part of the loop for the 50 miler. We caravan up to the start (Osmun Road) leaving camp usually some time between 9 and 10.
Usually we spot 2 cars, one at Pigeon Bridge, and one just before Rattlesnake Hill, usually done by people opting for shorter rides. After people get back to camp, we'll head out and gather the cars.
I'm tentatively planning to ride bass-ackwards from "normal", riding from camp and finishing at Osmun Road, taking one of the Osmun cars back.
