Much like the stampede, it will be gravel roads, a few no maintenance roads depending on if it has been raining and some black top running. We will have fuel stops planned and of course some great place to eat lunch.  We will be staying overnight on Friday and plan to eat at Benny's Westside for a steak on Friday evening (assuming it is still open for business).  I have always had a great time with other riders there.

On this ride, you are on your own to arrange for your camping, we are staying at the Blue Stem Motel and will leave from there. I believe the lake is a city owned lake so I would contact the City of Eureka about securing a camping site.

Well..... While riding yesterday.... I get this text from the Hodaka man..... Got a great route? 

Guess what the Easter bunny left at my house!
https://www.dropbox.com/s/9sfmodxbxyi0zdc/Eureka2017.kml?dl=0

200+ miles, lots of gas stops.  Looks like lunch in Sedan or push to CedarVale. 
Pray for no rain!  Some of the roads are min. maintenance.
This is a hybrid of a "Tom approved route!"

Download the KLM file, install Google Earth on your PC.  import the KLM file and enjoy!

Who wants to try out their GPS skills and lead?  I can ride sweep if we get separated,dazed or confused.

If you need to convert the KLM file to your specific GPS format, use GPS Babel.  It's free and works!

I'm sure the city lake can accommodate you for primitive camping! They have public showers on the south end of the lake maintenance building I think it is right on the road at the east end of the lake....

This route looks GREAT!! I know how much of a tedium making a route can be- thanks so much for cooking this up! It looks super fun! I'm planning on running this one, and i'll be slabbing it up in the AM. too.

I guess I need to take up having my gallbladder removed as a hobby, maybe my friends would bring me pizza and beer at the hospital.

You'll want to check with the City if you're interested in camping at Lake Eureka. I was just looking at their website, and I wasn't able to find any references to fees or if it's open for use, or what, though they do mention camping http://www.eurekaks.org/vnews/display.v/ART/5759713d67cc2
