ToDR recap - thanks everyone!


Thanks to all that went on the tour today. Headcount nineteen? We had perfect weather conditions and plenty of good ole dirt. The route ended up being around 85 miles.

Good Karma payback

We had three flats on the day due to pinch flats on the white rock, but we also had free all you can eat home cookin' at the tavern in Sprague. That was a pleasant PCL surprise (thanks for the text message Nathan). Schmidty really out did himself on this ToDR!

Thanks again folks. We're cookin' up some more fun this summer!

Tour of Dirt Roads MILEAGE UPDATE...

here ya go...

Stage 1 - Meadowlark to Cortland is approximately 45 miles, from there you have multiple options. You could continue with the ride or pick a route back to Lincoln. I'd estimate a straight shot back to town would add 20 miles so you'd get 65ish for the day.
Stage 2 - the Cortland bonus loop adds more dirt & another 13 miles. Add this loop & the eventual destination of the bar/cafe in Sprague you would now be at approximately 67 miles. Sprague has drinks (beer/cocktails/soda) & food.

Stage 3 - (well that's just the route back to Lincoln) retraces a couple sections you will see at the beginning of the ride & if you actually rode back to the coffee shop you would have approximately 83 miles for the day.

All sections of the route are in great shape as of Sunday.

See the below post for all the other ride details...

Tour of Dirt Roads III

The first 75 folks will receive a limited edition PCL ToDR III magnet (ToDR II magnet pictured above)

The PCL Tour of Dirt Roads III is only a few weeks away. The dirt has been drying up nicely and should be good to go as long as the weather cooperates.

Date: Sunday April 18th
Start time: 8 AM
Start location: Meadowlark Coffee

The ride will leave at 8 AM sharp. Please try to arrive by 7:45. If you want coffee I suggest 7:30 AM.

The route was pre-rode today and it is currently in flux. We will post the route soon.

This is a ride, not a race, but expect some folks to ride fast.
