The Grizzly Loops are all ridden, miles are verified, we have a ride to put on!

Max and some of our good friends have been getting the “new” loops ridden so we have accurate mileages to offer. Interestingly, the miles being recorded on different devices and applications are all coming up within tenths of a mile of one another. That’s heartening to know! I will be posting the gpx files for folks to upload into their Gaia GPS apps, or their GPS’s or whatever they choose. I’m excited about this!

The area the ride covers will be the same as last year, but I’ve changed up the loops, trying to cover ground, and still keep it interesting. We have to tread lightly when it comes to the governing body where our ride is held. We can only use these trails, so these trails are what we’re using. They make for a terrific first of the season ride. Not too easy, not too hard. Just the way we like ’em!

I’ll also be posting the loop colors and we’ll be getting started organizing our ribbons. Only a few weeks now!

Max reports that the trails, while a little gummy in places, are looking great. He’s going to try to contact the Grasslands office to confirm when they are releasing the area to have cows turned out. Hopefully AFTER the ride, OTHERWISE, we’ll need a herd of volunteers to man gates! Hint hint!

On to tracks and maps! Stay tuned!
