(everyone). Version 5 has an alternate route from Paris to Clarksville in case of rain. Click here
to post comments and photos (members only). We are staying in Paris, TX, on the night of Thursday, October 10, on the way up. The motel of choice is the Days Inn in Paris
, but you can stay where you like. The center of operations will be the Best Western Sherwood Inn
in Clarksville, AR, for the nights of Friday, October 11, through Sunday, October 13, but here again, you are free to stay where you like.
Some basic rules ...
1. Please carry emergency contact info in your wallet or programmed into your phone (I.C.E. contact).
2. Let's maintain a safety-minded culture: All the Gear, All the Time. Please wear the appropriate riding gear at all times.
3. All riders need to ride their own ride and are completely responsible for their own safety. Ride within your personal comfort zone at all times. We will stop at all turn-offs from the main road, if necessary, so that no one will be left behind.
4. Please make sure you start the trip with a full tank of gas. Plan on having enough gas to travel 125 miles from the starting point to the first gas stop. Never pass up an opportunity to get fuel when we stop for a break.
