Re: Around the Bend rally - March 23 - 26, 2017

What is the ratio of off road to pavement on these rides?

Looking for other early arrivals who might want to go to Pinto Canyon hot springs as well as one overnight (possibly camp, possibly hotel) in Mexico to the overlook.
You rang?

Haven't eaten here but it looks like there is an additional option for chow in the area. Pretty tasty after a long days' ride.

Not a plug for the place just general info.

I checked with Uncle and he says Gareth Park will be available for camping. It's across the street and a bit west of the El Dorado. Uncle was not sure there would be a porta potty, so plan on one not being available. The Big Bend Motor Resort in Study Butte has toilet and shower facilities. The toilet is free, the shower is $2 for 6 minutes. Bring quarters.

Technically, there is no off-road riding at all in the Big Bend area. Neither the state or national parks allow off-road riding and all the land around the parks is private, so no off-road riding there either.

There are lots of public dirt roads in both parks, affording lots of off-pavement riding. That's what all the dirt guys ride. The dirt roads in both parks are public roads so you must have a street-legal vehicle in order to ride them.

How much pavement versus off-pavement you do is entirely up to you. Some groups will ride 90% dirt. Others will ride more pavement and less off-pavement. Your call.

Re: Around the Bend rally - March 23 - 26, 2017

My wife and I were in Terlingua last week, stayed at Chisos Mining Co. It was fine with me. We ate Mexican food at Rio Bravo and it was excellent. We were there only one night, we spent one night in Alpine, and one in Marfa. We did a half day canoe on the Rio Grande. Next time a full day. It was fantastic (scenery) and an easy paddle going with the flow.

Depending on weather I want to ride street out there and back. Probably bike camp.
