I will post routes next week.
The plan is:
Friday 9/23 – ride to Martinsville IN.
Saturday 9/24 – ride from Martinsville to Tell City via country, farm, and forest roads. Mostly gravel.
Sunday 9/25 – ride from Tell City to Shelbyville, In via country, farm, and forest roads. Mostly gravel.
Monday 9/26 – ride back to Detroit area.
Friday and Monday are travel days, so if you want to boogie down and back via freeway you don’t need to join the ride down and back. I will plan a back road ride mostly pavement for those days.
The Saturday and Sunday rides do contain maybe three Hero sections (more if the weather is wet). There are workarounds for anyone who wants to skip them. You probably will have difficulty with the Hero sections on street tires. The rest is doable on street tires with care, but you will feel more comfortable in the gravel with an aggressive tread.
I will post motel locations in the next few days. In the meantime lets try for a roll call of who is going.September 6, 2016 at 12:18 pm #10904

Hi, I’m a member of the West Michigan BMW club, would it be alright if I join this ride? Thank youSeptember 17, 2016 at 3:28 pm #11020
Everyone is welcome to join and participate in the BMWTCD rides and events, no membership required. It would be good to send Dave Allgood a note since he is the ride leader.
