No 2016 Route Hint?

Postby raftersteve » Wed Sep 23, 2015 1:02 pm

The tradition of giving a route hint for next year's ride was broken this year by Steve(Cowboy). Really sad the tradition was broken....

I really hope that it was because my guess for the 2015 route was so good and not that CO is trying to find a way go back Halfway / Joseph in 2016... :wink:

I think they should do a 'Mystery Route Ride' where they don't announce a route at all. You sign up without knowing where you will be riding. Find out later, at the ride or just before the ride.

Heard them discussing whether or not to share a hint. Since it usually gives the ride away early, they decided against it. My best guess is we will not be in NE Oregon in 2016. Plan on that to happen within 5-8 years.

"Mystery Route Ride"....I like it. Kind of like we did this year. Only this year no one knew where we were going until a day or two before it happened. 8)
