Lots of good roads out there and points east of 59. Really depends where you want to start and end and how far you want to ride..

I don't have any "routes" written down but know a bunch of good roads.

Again, depends where you plan to start/end. We usually do lunch in Cold Springs at the Hop.. but at a conservative pace it is hard to cover the miles... we average 250-270 miles on our "loop", not including getting to and from.

Normal starts are either off 45N or 59/242.

Be wary of 224 with a large, mixed group, at anything over mild pace. Fresh pavement but off camber and decreasing radius turns are not noob friendly.

If you have a basic idea of where you want to start and end, and about how long a ride, PM and I'll put something together.

that's no biggie; most country and mountain roads are "blind"

Trick is to watch the treeline coming up to the curve, especially over hills. That will give you a good indicator of the turns direction... rather than wait until you get into it and try to correct.

Same thing with winding canyons, the walls give you a hint as to where the next curve is headed.

Let me check over the route trooper. I have all the roads written down for the long loop. All I ask is that you keep your ride not so big, so that livingston doesn't blown up by newbs. Most of them complain about the distance it takes to get there anyway...

Thanks to all who sent routes, gawd I love this place. One big family, anyways I will get it worked out and posted once I settle on a date. Probably 3 sat of April but that's not firm yet.

This ride will probably not be noob friendly and will be for advanced riders but again I'll post it once I have a firm date.

Thanks again.

Don't forget to hit FM224 off 156. Probably the best road up there.
