Buck Meadows Yosemite Dual Sport Event

Last Saturday we attended a BMW National Adventure Riding Series Event hosted by Family Off Road Adventures.  This ride is held twice a year and offers 150 riders the chance to explore some little-known trails around Yosemite. This year’s ride was cut short because of weather related trail closures so Jon and I added some pavement to give us a total ride of nearly 100 miles.  Details of our route including gpx files, google map, and photos are posted on
