    White Rim in April, for sure. Campsites are booked, need to assemble a crew.

    Considering (very much considering) bikepacking the Green Mountain Gravel Growler route as well.

    Beyond that, hoping some other cool big rides “just happen”.

    behind you, don't wait up.
    I've ridden up there quite a bit on the NH side. The terrain is amazing and beautiful. That looks like a good ride.

    We rent a house in Ocean Park every year. Literally the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. It is small town Americana. Spend the day at the beach, go to the Soda Fountain, if you do want to do touristy stuff that is a close drive, but the town is isolated from all the crowds and whatnot. Highly recommend. Also bypassing the Mass turnpike and driving through Vermont only adds to the relaxation which says something being in the car for 9 hours each way.

    Gotcha. Agreed Portland is a cool town too. I have family in Maine but much farther north.

    Love Portland. Great restaurants. The Corner Room is really good if you get a chance to go. https://www.thecornerroomkitchenandbar.com/dinner/
    The boys had fun on a fire truck tour last year too.

    Overnighting at Peter Estin hut from Eagle was a good fun route for a simple bikepacking trip.

    I'd like to do the Alpine Loop this summer, or just ride down in the SW corner in general, http://www.bikepacking.com/routes/the-alpine-loop/
    I've also got a ~400 mile loop which starts here, up through Red Feather Lakes, Walden, Fraser/WP and over Corona Pass back to here.

    I used to do at least one century on the road each month, I might put this on the calendar for this year: https://triplebypass.org/

    How much is It? I didn’t want to drill down too deep into the registration form to find out...

    $225 I think, price went up a week ago so not sure what the earlier price was. I think I've only ever paid more for the BC Bike Race...

    Maybe I’ll just do it solo in September. But that is prime Dirt time for CO...

    Right. Just a single overnighter then. Perfect.

    My brother is pretty convinced that the YouTube video of white face somehow matches his ability. I can assure it doesn't.

    Someday we'll decide if we're gonna focus on riding Colorado or Tahoe and Mammoth area this summer.
