This is a ride of too many choices - to take the dual sport or the street bike? Last year was the first year of a dual sport route - what a blast! Although this year I'm leaning toward the street route - but the dual sport route is sounding mighty interesting.... too many choices.... what is a girl to do? Maybe street- there are always a few ladies riding street bikes... but the dirt.. only me with 8 guys...... the guys were great but it'd be nice to have another women or 2 on dual sport ride. Hmmm ....which way do I go? Well I got a few weeks to decide.... maybe by then I'll have made a choice. ???dual sport - street???, dual sport - street???, dual sp...................

I think Kari and I will be in town this year, so we'll have to join you. Normally she would be totally up for a DS ride, but this early in the season she may be intimidated. We'll see what she wants to do. If it would stop snowing up here we could get out on some rides before then!

Greg emailed me back with the DS route description. Here is what he sent:

“ Quote:
We will leave Lewiston and will climb up out of Asotin up George creek canyon very steep, stay away from the edge, dirt roads along Meyer Ridge south to the Blue Mountains, up Bennet Ridge and up to Big Butte "if the snow has melted" to stretch our legs, back down out of the Blues headed east out across Montgomery Ridge and back down a 2500' drop back down from seeing snow to seeing cactus along the Snake river, upriver from Asotin, near where the Grand Rhonde meets the Snake. Then back through paved twisties into Lewiston along the Snake River. Back by 3pm to meet all groups at Dairy Queen in Lewiston. This isn't a difficult route because I never know riders experience, it's just a beautiful area, well worth seeing.
Looks like an amazing route to me. Not sure if Kari will want to try it or not, but if she doesn't go I'm definitely going the DS route.

I ran the route with the guys on Saturday - nothing technical just gravel, dirt, some mud and lots of beautiful places. Don't know what she rides but she shouldn't have any trouble. The guys where great last year about waiting at every turn for everyone to catch up. Or she can run the street route - There will be different groups from those running over the limit to those taking their time to smell the roses along the way - so everyone can run in their comfort zone.

If it rains all week :(
Got this from Trail Boss Greg this am, if your going to do the dual sport route, he does have an alternate, to avoid the mud pits!

If the weather is lousy while Iím gone this week, I will change the route because that dirt road up on top will be slicker than all getout. The new route would be up river past Asotin, up Weissenfels Ridge out onto Hwy 129 and a run down Rattlesnake canyon for some great paved twisties, a leg stretch/photos, and you could get a soda at the store on the river. Then back up the grade and back down the grade we came down then back into Asotin...Greg

Hi, fairly new to the group, what will be the route for the non-DS folks? Other than going up the ol' spiral highway...?

At the top of Spiral, on to Pullman, through town, on out 27 to Palouse. Turn at the Kamiak Butte or Clear Creek road, then on to the Colfax/Palouse highway which is 272. Down to Colfax, out Colfax on 195 to Pullman, then hang a right on Wawawai/Pullman Rd. (There's a flashing yellow light at the intersection.) Down to Wawawai and along the river to Clarkston, cross Red Wolf Bridge onto Bridge St. and then "parade" downtown Clarkston across the Blue Bridge to the Dairy Queen, downtown Lewiston. Gonna do this in groups of 8, possibley 10 depending on numbers. Last year we had a good mix of sport/sport touring types as well as cruisers. We try to divide this up with similar riding styles and bikes. All are welcome.

I haven't done a google map, but do have a description and a hand drawn map to pass out on the morning of the ride. Let me work on the other, and try to get it up before you all leave... uhh that didn't sound right, but you know what I mean.
