The Lone Star BMW Riders
The Old Road Ride
This is a ride on all the "Old" roads you see while driving around North Texas and wonder where they go... The last time we did this ride it was a "Ride for Five" during COVID.
Most are or were paved, to some degree. There are 4 sections, about 10-12 miles in total, that range from gravel to graded dirt. It is a good ride for a GS, but any bike can make it. "You could do it in a Lexis..."
We will go on Old Hwy 6, Old Peterson road, Old Dorchester road, Old Gunter Hwy, Old Scoggin's road, and Old Southmayd road. Will will use some other roads along the way to connect these.
We'll have Lunch at Mom's and then take a more direct and fully paved route home.
NOTE: We will postpone this ride if the roads are wet.
Ride Leader: Scott Croff
