    Here we go ...let's get this started
    Tomorrow night, the wind chill here is to be -44 ...time to start thinking about riding
    The Bethany ...traditionally the first ride of the year, let's try to keep it so!
    Once again we are hoping to run two routes. One being the regular Bethany fare and the other a more big bike friendly route as we did last year
    We will use this thread to keep everything updated

    We are still working on a date.... The OFTR calander lists the ride for Saturday April 25th. This is not carved in stone.
    The Beagle Bash Enduro and Trail Ride is the next day. How do people feel about this? What about a week earlier on the 18th? The Final date is entirely dependant on the snow/ice melt as we saw last year.
    As usual, we will be looking for volunteers to get this done. Scouts, pre riders, ride leaders and sweeps. PM me if this interests you or you are available to help.

    Thanks Bruce.
    Remember that knobbies will be required for the pre riders of the route. Big bike route guys should be fine on d/s tires pre riding. We will probably make a couple of by passes on the big bike route for those who don't feel comfortable on road allowances.

    I always mean to come out to one of these year-opening rides and always miss it for one reason or another. Here's hoping I make this one on my XR650L, whenever the date happens to be.
