Not a big deal but when trying to add the rally point to my calendar (from the button in the rally point page) it still shows the previous rally point info.

@Fortis Overland not sure if depends on the setup you did or it’s a platform bug.

Start time 10:00am? Thought we talked about trying to get to an 8:00 or 9:00 start but I don't recall if a final decision was made. RP shows 10:00 as of today.

All,

Please see updates to the Rally Point. We'll focus on the trail ride this go-around and then stop in Woodland Park/COS for lunch afterwards. The plan will be to take Dakan Road from the North side, and travel south down to Rainbow Falls.

Please note the time change as well.

I'm not sure if I want to start a thread on this or just discuss things first, but I thought I would put this out to our group this next meeting, my wife and I are planning on doing a 3 nights - 4 days in the San Juan's July 23rd-26th Not sure of what trails (route) we will do yet. With my wife riding along on the majority of them I want to keep it as tame as possible (she has trouble with shelf roads as it is). I will do recearch and take suggestions so we can plan something that works for those who want to go.
I thought it would be good to get people who are interested in this as much advance notice as possible.

Hey @JDGreens, you can always create a rally point event if you want to start inviting people. Otherwise, we can talk it over as a group next Saturday!

Gents, it looks like our monthly trail rides are gaining some popularity. @mountainrecce - we should probably start working out a plan for if we see a large group show up, with how many vehicles we'd like in a convoy and who we want taking point in each.

Excited to get out with the group again!

I also realized that I constrained the group to 10 rigs. If you wanted to RSVP but were unable to before, please go and do that when you can. Thanks!

No worries, a good drivers brief should take care of most of that. I would recommend no more than 5 vehicles with about 20 minutes apart. The lead crew can pick a spot somewhere along the way that everyone can link back up at...probably crossing RRR. Main points will be a slower paced driver up front, experience in the back and radios in each crew that can reach between 20 minute gap.

I downloaded the GPX and it seems to only show the meeting location, not the whole ride. Am I doing something wrong?

Are you selecting the “Save GPX” button or trying to open in Google Maps or Google Earth? It seems to download the .gpx file for me, then I can open in Gaia. I don’t believe Google Maps or Google Earth support .gpx without some third party add-on.

When I open it in Gaia on my Mac, I see the trail, but when I AirDrop the GPX file to my iPhone, it just shows the meeting spot. I did find the trail on Gaia so I think I'm good.
