To the newer riders and us rest as refreshers: Add if I have missed anything:

 

A. We will want some contact names / numbers given to someone before we depart.

 

B. Consider your options if your bike fails and we cannot repair or a crash happens. The ride continues. What will you do?

 

C. Consider letting someone else know you might need to have them make a trip and pick you up.

We just returned from a short trip to this area and it was awesome. Push Mountain Road was in poor condition on the north end, and fresh oil and chip.on the south end.

AR 14 from Yellville south was a great road. Ozark Cafe in Jasper is a cool place to stop.

 

I used up my time off so we can't make this one ?

Hey Dave @whatarush

Do you have the GPX format for the maps so I can put them on my Garmin? I guess in July 2018, Google changed their rules and I cannot use GPS Visualizer to create the file without owning the map (in My maps) or having an Google API code.

 

EDIT: Here's the link talking about it.

The route for Sunday wouldn't connect properly going over Push Mtn. or AR 215 after Oark.  

Saturday OCT. 20th.gpx

Sunday OCT. 21st.gpx

I will get those on my Garmin tonight hopefully. I already did the route down manually :)

On my map, AR215 is gravel, may be that's why it wouldn't do it. I'm sure it's not but Garmin thinks it is.

It is gravel going east of the Oark General Store.

Technically, 215 seems to end at Oark, heading east from there it turns into 5440,  Then it turns to gravel at Catalpa.  Another nice little lunch stop.
