Paul Said:

MiB - maybe next time.

I'm trying to drag my cousin and his steamer Tiger out. Thinking about leaving around 10-10:30 or so, grabbing some lunch down there.

Route - Suggestions?

Possible Route

Made in Brazil said...

go a little further and take 204/51 and do your loop

paul said...

can't find 204 on the map...although 205 does intersect 51...that's in the route i posted.

there's also a closer (still decent) loop out around Fairfield/Richland Chambers Lake, in case we get a late start...it's a pretty open-ended deal at this point...i just have to be back by 4 or so for a family function.

Pete said...

I've got family in town. I was talking to my dad about moving his flight home back a few days, renting a couple of bikes and making a run for Big Bend.

paul said...

oh mama.

do it. 118 south out of Alpine is such a great road...as is 2810 south out of Marfa, all the way to Ruidosa, or Chinati Hot Springs (via the Pinto Canyon Road, if you're on a GS).

jealous.

Made in Brazil said...

If you keep going south pass 205, you will see 204 that changes into 51. Zoom in on the route that you posted and you can see it.

Pete said...

I'm doing big bend soon. I think we will try to get a few us up to make the trip. James and I almost hit it this summer... but ended up making a right turn and wound up in Colorado instead.

paul said...

Colorado isn't a bad diversion, 'specially this little trail: Alpine Loop

I've ridden it on a DR650...heaven on earth, man.

Back to Big Bend...be sure and let me know...i've got a few hook ups in the area (ie. a friend that owns a vineyard with a well-stocked fridge about 18 miles south of Alpine).

Is this ride still a go?

paul said...

assuming it isn't raining, yeah.

Pete said...

great day for a ride...

It was peeing down here yesterday. Today (sat) and tomorrow look good though.
