Re: [RC] Humble opinions on multi-day rides requested - Joe Long

Unfortunately, both of these are no longer existant...but, knowing what I 
know about multi-days and what I really liked about both of those, if _I_ 
lived in the Central Region and were picking a multi-day, I would choose the 
Shore to Shore.

I have never done it, but it is a point to point (like the two I mentioned 
above), and I have heard nothing but good things about it.  I don't think 
that there are any other 5-day point to point multiday rides left in the 
country.

In my experience, if you do 5 days all out of the same camp, even if you 
aren't on the same trail the WHOLE time, it all starts to look the same 
because there really isn't all that much variety if you have to stay within 
25 miles of camp.
  
I haven't had the opportunity to ride Shore to Shore for some time, but
when I did ride it was a blast.  A five-day party.  I agree with what
Kat writes and I heartily recommend the Shore to Shore.

My favorite ride format is point-to-point, where you actually go
somewhere.  My next favorite is a single loop.  It's too bad there are
so few of them these days.
