    "loop" means dropping in behind the PO and climbing back up Middle Road?

    Berni, what's your definition of a "loop" for this ride?

    Have you ever done SART?
    It's an out and back but people refer to the first part of it as the "Post Office loop" because most times you finish the ride coming up Middle Control. A bunch of times I've done a total out and back.

    you can truly loop it by going down Post Office, then heading up on fireroad, 7 Oaks to the the start of the SART single track right before highway 38, then go down hill until u hit middle control fire road, and up back to ur car..
    bugs are back...
    loose...
    still awesome...

    A fun way is to start at Glass Rd. so you get to stop at your ice chest halfway through the ride. Option to run the upper part again, too.

    This is the way I have done it in the past, except that we stopped at the campground across the highway to rest up before heading back.

    The most fun way to do it... is just show up and let the wheels roll.

    Just bring your big boy pants :thumbsup:
    Knowing Berni, he will go for a total out and back. He will only bail out on middle control fire road at the end if it's too warm :)
