Who has ridden track #1, the back road to Bodie?  That’s the only place I haven’t been on this map

Think i did last year.  Then Eric and I lost the group and wound up in BFE.

@Lukeymckenzie are you sure it's the gpx file and not the pdf file?

Yep. It was the gpx. I finally got it to upload into my Rever, but it looks like a pile of spaghetti. I'm assuming it's just my uselessness with nav systems, so I'll see if there's someone on thursday who can have a look over a beer! 

I downloaded that pdf map also -- looks fantastic! Can't wait!

Look me up on Rever. Westen Rogers. I've put all the Intermediate and Advanced routes in my Planned Tab. I've even put pictures of the route start points.

Just added you and scrolled your planned rides! Great stuff! Though I couldn’t download them into my planned rides. Maybe I can “buy” you a beer and see if I can get them texted or air dropped across at the campsite?

 

and sorry to clog the thread with this!

I'll bring my laptop. Have you purchased the Rever subscription? That maybe why you can't download the routes

Yep. Pro member. I’ll see what I can do if I should be able to do it — don’t want you to have to lug that up!

Ok — I should’ve checked on my laptop first. I assumed I could do it from my phone... I think I’ve figured it out!

If you have an Android phone, the routes look good in the Locus (Pro) app.

I rode the backway into Bodie on Cottonwood Cyn Rd 3 weeks ago and its an easy graded dirt road, even passed a Toyota Corrolla on it.

Depending on the time when we get to Bodie on Friday will determine if we do the 2-3 hours of Bodie Masonic Rd into Bridgeport or not as I haven't pre-run that yet. If it's too late we'll skip Bodie Masonic and head out the main rd (270) to 395 and pick up green creek rd., you won't want to miss the route into Virginia Lakes.

My group will stop at 395 & 120 at the Mobil Station/Whoa Nellie Deli for those that may need breakfast and we can grab a sandwich for the trailside lunch, we will leave the Whoa Nellie Deli in Lee Vining between 9 & 9:30am. Remember, Lee Vining is 45 minutes from camp so plan your morning accordingly top get Gas/Breakfast/Sandwich and be ready to go no later than 9:30am.

BTW, The Whoa Nellie Deli is reputed to be THE BEST place in town for food!

Good stuff @David Diaz but Cottonwood cyn wasn't the "back way" into Bodie I was referring to.  There is a route even further east than Cottonwood, but I thinks Westen got that plotted out for us.   See you all in a few dayz

Yes, Gary Graham is my Dad.  I'll have to be on my best behavior...  and no "hike-a-bike" rides for Dad, he's in for the views and the beer.

Your dad is coming?  I may just have to make an appearance...

That was fun! We ended up popping out at Bridgeport then raced back down 395.

BTW, that “back way” track really should be intermediate not advanced

Like real intermediate.  There were people having issues that probably should not have been on the trail.

Greg, is this the route that ends up in Nevada?  Check out the screenshot.  I've also attached a gpx of the track.
