From there I'll ride south to Victor, where there is a short walk from the parking-lot to see "Rita the Rock Planter"

After that I'll make my way over to Hwy-9, and ride north to Breckenridge.
The plan is to find parking, and eat lunch at "Ollie's Pub and Grub", which is floating inside a replica Dredge.

After Lunch, a quick ride over to the Ice-Arena and a short 1/4-mile walk from the parking-lot to see "Isak Heartstone"

The plan is to return over Boreas Pass, which is an easy dirt-road along the old Railroad Grade.

This will be a mostly mellow Pavement ride, with the exception of the easy dirt over Boreas Pass Rd.

Total planned route for the day is 280-Miles.

If anyone wants to join me, feel free to post up on here!

If there are folks that want to go this coming Sunday (the 16th) I'll run this on Sunday, otherwise I will ride this on Wednesday the 19th. There will be less people to deal with mid-week.

Excellent Ride with @Mad_Matt yesterday!

The day started out cloudy and chilly. The sun would peek out later in the day, and it did eventually warm up.
We got sprinkled on a few times, but nothing major.

Since it was just Matt and I, we modified the Route and schedule a little bit.
Ended up being a 323-mile day for me.

This was once a Resort-Hotel along the Railroad that ran through here a long time ago.
They have been doing a little refurbish work to it recently.

Circumstances that unfolded at the end of the day led to me having ridden the farthest I have ever gone on a single tank of fuel.
306.8-miles! (there's still some fuel in there)

Bike is claiming I got just over 62-mpg for the day (probably actually closer to 58-59 or so)

I'm now tempted to conduct an experiment, and see exactly how much useable capacity this fuel-tank holds.................

Thanks for organizing an awesome ride! When I filled up, I was shocked to see I only had to put in 5gal after riding 255 miles, which works out to the best MPG (50.3) I have ever gotten on my Super Tenere.
