Big Bend trip leaving Oct 22
October 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - October 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm CDT
Just sending out a quick reminder about the Big Bend trip. The dates are 10/22-25th. As discussed in the meeting, there will be 2 groups leaving and coming back. Chris will be taking the group Leaving on 10/22 that wants to ride it all in 1 day. I-10 to 90 and grabbing a bag lunch from somewhere and stopping at lake Amistad (nice lake!) to eat and rest.The rough plan is Friday to ride river road (170) and make the loop around through Ft Davis, those are the best roads and will be about 300 miles. Then Saturday, ride through the park, which there’s only a couple roads and that will be a short day. If we want, there are a couple short rides around there we can hit that day. Like 385 to Marathon and a couple others. One of the days we can hit “downtown” Terlingua to see the ghost town, cemetery, and all the tourist things!
All rides will start in Terlingua. As far as lodging, there is a few hotels and quite a few Airbnb’s there. Alpine 80 miles or Marathon 60 miles are other options. There is a nice place on Airbnb that has 7 cabins that can accommodate couples that would be a good spot, just fyi.
As we get closer, Chris will send out where to meet and time of departure leaving on 10/22, but just wanted to send a reminder out so everyone can start making their reservations and get ready.
This will be the chapter ride to get the Big Bend patch…..There’s also some good camping out there if you’re wanting to get the Campfire 600 patch as well!! 😀
