Mission: Dirt Roads

Easton, United States

While I’m off work waiting for the world to go back to normal I’ve been doing a lot of Moto Distancing. I’ve been out simply getting lost and trying to find my way back home. While doing so, I’ve been noticing there are a lot more dirt and gravel roads in my county than I thought. I’m not exactly in the middle of nowhere but I do have a ton of mountain and farm roads that I was never aware of. I’m making it my mission to ride and catalogue as many dirt roads in my area as possible.

You can't be "lost" if you don't have a destination. As long as I'm riding and rubber side down I'm exactly where I want to be. Cheers!

I do a lot of the same thing.  It is actually fun to just pick random directions and turns. Hours later having to pull over to check phone GPS to figure out just where I am.

@ Slyck255 sorry, I’m Eastern PA. When I leave my ally I can literally see New Jersey across the river.

Nice, I been doing almost the opposite. So when I have to go to work I take I-95 which I normally avoid since around DC it is the salmon run. However, with people on lock down it is awesome!

@The_Instructor this bike is usually used for commuting so I stuck with a mostly street tire. I’m using the Continental Trail Attack 2 front and rear. These are some of the best cold weather/ wet weather tires that I’ve used on any bike. I don’t expect any horrible road conditions on the dirt roads around here so I’m confident they should work. So far they have done very well on the marbles.
