|Headed for the Red Trail, you can see |
our namesake pigs of mass destruction.
The 60 has no single track in it but if you feel the need we are introducing the DIRTY PIG OPTION. You ride the 40 mile loop followed by the second part of the 60, you'll ride farther and include all the single track. Only the brave need apply........are you strong enough for the challenge?
|The Red Trail. Double-track, grassy and smooth.|
Right after the start, you will ride the Red trail to the Power Line.
It's a grassy smooth trail that twists and turns for about 4 miles.
There is a well ridden line to follow on this one. Soon you are on the South Power line.
|Passing through a pine hammock on the Red Trail.|
After 3.5 miles on the Red Trail, the route meets up with the 20 and 40 mile routes and you pop back onto the South Power Line.
You will be ahead of the other groups so...no traffic.
You will pass the sag stop at this point not to return
until mile 31 so plan ahead.
A right turn down Venice Arcadia Grade and some power riding in grass will take you to the Border Road extension after crossing a gate (bypass on right side).
|South Power Line.|
|Some power pedaling on the V-A Grade is |
rewarded by some sweet gravel on Border Road.
On Border Road you will cross 3 gates, all have a bypass or a gate on the left side .
|The South Power Line...a welcome reprieve from the grass. At the Doe Hammock/South Power Line junction, the 20's head back toward the start. The 40's and 60's head east toward North Port and the Carlton RANCH.|
