I will take mostly state and local roads down on Friday July 24. Leaving probably from Saline. We will ride Saturday and Sunday, and return Monday. If commitments keep you from joining the ride down or back Crawfordsville is 5 hrs plus stops away on the freeway.
Please make your Motel reservation at the Comfort Inn in Crawfordsville, IN. Direct number is 765-361-0665.
Again this is a fairly non-technical gravel ride viewing and traveling through many covered bridges in west central Indiana. Watch for routes and tracs to be posted ahead of the ride.
All is subject to change pending any closures due to the on going Pandemic.
For those who want to take the long way down (great name for a movie or something) lets meet at the park in Dexter across from the Dairy Queen. I’ve managed to make a 5 hour freeway ride into a 7.5 hour backroad jaunt. There may even be a couple of covered bridges on the way down. There may be some gravel on the way down but not much. Come early for coffee or goodies from Joe and Rosies coffee shop or the Dexter Bakery just down the street. Be fueled and ready to ride at 9:00 AM.
We will ride the south route on Saturday and see 19 covered bridges. The Sunday route is a bit shorter in case anybody wants to head home early. We should see 12 bridges on Sunday. There is considerable gravel on both routes, but there should be no real hero sections.
The routes will be posted in the next few minutes in the GPS forum.
