Take a look @ Google maps and look for upper Nestucca river road. It drops you out at Carlton, or, you can hang a left on I think Boundary Rd.(?) and heads you back to Beaver. Sounds like it was a blast and no slow-poke riding What group was this, from Meetup?

Thanks Jay and Mike for planning and scouting it out. Just remember, we are going to have a big group, so we won't be able to ride as fast as if solo or in a smaller group. We don't want to get strung out (like in the 60s).

Topping this up here on page 6! Hey LDofDC, You coming out?

..


I would like to ride out there again! It's an awesome ride and you guys put on an excellent event!! It takes about 9 days out of my July! I seem to have too many irons in the fire this year. If I can get the personal stuff ironed out I would commit but until then I'll just keep on keeping on!!


Just be a slacker for a change and dump a few irons! Life will go on.

Jaybo, I think it was boundary, we went left on Nestucca River Rd I think and ended up in Beaver. And that part up there was very slow and easy. Hauled on the big road though. Still going to get a ride on our route to time it one of these times.

Yeah, I thought that was the name of the road. You can get to Boundary either way, just longer if you go right then turn left at the end of that road onto Boundary.

Oh and yes, Really looking forward to checking that route out.

Hendog and I rode to Spiffy's today for lunch. 140 miles round trip for me, 3/4ths in the rain. Nice and toasty now by the fireplace. Hendog is drying out at his place in Mossyrock.

I spent the day at my painters place sanding on my tins. My paint got here yesterday, so I'm getting excited. I found my lower rear fender has a crack in it so got to get another one off of Ebay. The nice day here and there is killing me though! So ready for a ride!
