Some recent work up in the twin cities allowed me the oppurtunity to 'scout' a fair portion of the proposed ride routes. I was looking for detours and road destruction and so on. I am happy to report that wild cat mountain has fairly new back top, only one rough bit on a 20mph S turn but otherwise all good. The state highways (61 ands 35) on both sides of the river are clear and in great shape, waysides and viewing areas all open. County road T to Mindoro has new black top. Going south from Mindoro the road is rough but once you start climbing you are not going to be going too fast anyhow. The top of the hill (where the actual 'cut' is) would be a good place for a photo, as there is a turn out there. The road condition is better coming down the grade, which is good because it is a much more technical ride. SR 162 is having the shoulders scraped but it should be done before the rally and CR II is open at this time. We should have some great rides and awesome scenery.
