Past Ride Reports

May 10  The ride was to Delmar.  Ride should be 75 miles.  It was a high speed ride through the pines.  The group visited graveyards and the ghost town.  Many of the miners  had silica damage to their lungs.  Many hunters and hikers stay in the House at Delmar.  There were rattlers and a bull snake.  From there they went to a dry lake bed and the lava beds.  The group also saw petroglyphs.  This all ended with a hot dog bash.  Mike Ardroin and Captain Bob are leading.

May 24-26  This is a two day ride for Hualapai and Elkridge in Arizona. Mike Ardroin is leading.  This was a case of rescue work.  The group possibly saved two lives.  One person had a flat tire who was diabetic.  He could not change it, but the group took him to a safe area.  Another casualty was a Honda civic or Camry that took out his oil pan , and they took him in.  Why a car on this trail??  A side by side Razor  locked up and blew his gears and differential.  This was one of our members.


Future rides
