ACA Spring Trip?
« on: October 28, 2010, 08:39:08 pm »
Seriously thinking of joining the Adventure Cycling KATY Trail-Relaxed trip this coming spring. I have done a fair amount of solo "bikepacking", usually just a night or two, plus a 3 week, self-supported MTB trip through Karelia (NW Russia, next to Finland) with local guides, 13 years ago. The KATY Trail is part of the Lewis and Clark Bicycle Trail, which is one of my life goal rides. (I did a short section of the KATY last spring, and have been working on the South Dakota section for two years.) I have been riding about 750 miles per year, trying to get that back up to 1000 or more.

I think this would be a good, early-season trip. I am particularly interested in how the trip is run, as we are planning a major L&C journey from Sioux City, IA or Yankton, SD, to Kamiah, ID in 2012. Any thoughts, opinions, ideas? Let me know.

Ride safe,
Hans

Decided not to go for this year. Kevin (An ACA trip leader and friend) assures me I would have fun, but things are a bit tight now, so i will just have to content myself with our annual trek through South Dakota and some local one or two-night trips for 2011.

Ride safe...ride warm,
