There has been some unexpected weather but let’s get outside!
It’s again time to head out and explore some of Oregon’s dual-sport terrain. Join the Sang-Froid Riding Club on Saturday, 22 November for the 2014 “Back Forty Enduro”!
The start point this year is a wide spot on Highway 224 about five miles south of Estacada. The wide spot is on the left side of the road, just before the Promontory Park Marina (which will be on your right). Look for our EZ-Ups. We’ll have hot coffee waiting for you, and your team will be issued a piece of survival equipment.
The destination point will be announced that morning.
The rules are the same as last year: your team must make its way from Point A to Point B without the use of maps or GPS. No roll charts, no trail marking, no sweep truck – just your team and collective wits. The team that turns the fewest miles on pavement wins. Bring some teammates or be prepared to make new friends.
Gather ~8 a.m., pre-ride meeting at 8:45, start at 9, last team must arrive by 2 p.m.
This is a point-to-point ride. At the destination you’ll be ~10 miles from gasoline, ~60 (paved) miles from Portland. While it’s possible to do an out-and-back loop to the starting point, you may run out of daylight.
Details: gas up in Estacada. Bring water, food, compass. Tow straps/rope not a bad idea.
