What to Expect:
We like small roads, natural scenic beauty, nice climbs, and big views. The focus is not on going fast but on seeing some cool places.

We have ridden all these rides and try to provide you with a darn good idea of what to expect.

When we work on a course we always try and find a safe place to park a car. We try to keep rougher roads on the uphill. And if possible, include a water stop … Which living in the middle of nothing proves to be a huge challenge.

But let me warn you: we aren’t afraid of a few rough roads and we aren’t afraid of a good climb. Hey, we try and warn you.


Downloading Courses:
To use our rides you need to have a GPS. Yes, some of you old school folks want those turn by turn directions and skip carrying a GPS. That’s all fine if you do rides on big roads, but these are off the beaten path and we have found most people just get lost so we haven’t really helped them much. Modifying the directions proved to be a nightmare so instead, we just say you wanna, gotta have a GPS. That means either use your smartphone  or buy a Garmin. Sorry about that!


Using a GPS
Don’t know how to use a GPS?   Here are a couple of great links to get you started.  We recommend you try mapping out a few routes close to home and trying them BEFORE you head out on one of ours.  Duh!  Yep, we pick routes with few cars; that means nobody is going to find you.GPS files


Can I Steal Your Rides?
Each ride takes a good xxx hours of careful mapping.  We are thrilled if you want to use them for group rides, tours, a way to promote your town.   But, yes we would like a little credit.


Reporting Issues
We try really hard to ensure the ride you download is accurate.  Just email us at ….  If you find a problem.


Suggesting a New Ride
We are open for suggestions on rides, but we won’t post anything we haven’t ridden.  Yeah, yeah too many times we have done a ride and felt it needed a few changes or just didn’t have the wow! factor.
