SanAn Croom Megaride
« on: July 04, 2011, 11:49:12 AM »
After becoming bored of SanAn road rides and the success of the TACORIDE route, I am hard at work in the lab on a new 'hybrid' route. This time from the traditional roadie SanAn ride parking lot up to Croom and back.


I've taken a first stab at a route here: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4623261


The ride will be probably half dirt half paved on the way to and back from Croom, then we would probably ride north blue and yellow, and return south to the SanAn ballfield parking lot. I would estimate the distance to be around 80 miles.

It would be best to do this on a Saturday morning so we can create a scene and cause havoc for the roadie packs and Tri geeks.


Post up here if you might be interested in the ride. Also, if you might be willing to scope out some parts of the route with a GPS (particularly the dirt roads in SanAn/Trilby area and south of Croom Rd.).

Anyone is invited, but no doubt at any pace this will be a very difficult route.

I'm planning to scope out the northbound segment Wednesday late afternoon if anyone wants to join and have a taste.

Any recommendations for a date?

Orion, I think you need to come suffer with us and ride Mother Croom.

No MTB would be best as I need to scope out the dirt roads, not the paved ones  :)
