It is not a requirement to join both or any of the rides to join us at camp.

We've rated both rides 3.5 Beards out 5

To be very clear we'll be riding from Latus to the Campground, on pavement, to set up camp. The first dirt ride is in the afternoon, after we've all set up camp, and the second will be Sunday morning. You are not required to do any of the rides after the initial ride to base camp.
The first dirt ride is 60 miles, overall easy, but several sections have big rocks, deep ruts, sunken grade, overgrown foliage. Requires alertness and moderate skill. The second ride on Sunday is 99 miles, has small, loose gravel. There will be a break after roughly 30 miles. After the break there are 4 to 5 miles of very tight turns buried in deep, loose gravel. For this reason, this ride is not recommended for those recovering from injuries. There may also be active logging on this route, so please be attentive and prepared to stop or pull over for trucks. 

Trucks, Cars and RVs (that are not our support truck) are not permitted, this is a motorcycle + tent situation only. 

 Spoiler: This is NOT where we'll be camping.
