Bunyan’s to Bob’s

Just a friendly reminder that the (in)famous BDCC member ride, Bunyan’s to Bob’s, will happen this Saturday (5/17)!  We’ll start from Bunyan’s at 8:00 AM and ride to Bob’s, in the tiny hamlet of Martinsburg, NE.  There, we will consume this:

There are many ways to get there, depending on your intestinal fortitude:

  1. blacktop the whole way (SD Hwy 19 – NE Hwy 12 – NE Hwy 9):  around 32 miles one way via Ponca; once you hit Newcastle, it is mostly flat  [map:  https://goo.gl/maps/pauxZ]
  2. blacktop (SD Hwy 19) to Newcastle (via NE Hwy 12), gravel to Martinsburg:  around 25 miles [map:  https://goo.gl/maps/oLQne]
  3. gravel (nearly all the way):  25 miles [map:  https://goo.gl/maps/gOfIO]
  4. car:  mileage does not matter

Or any other combination thereof.  Go back whichever way your stomach allows.

Note:  the gravel from Newcastle to Martinsburg is extremely hilly—like a change in elevation of a mile.  Travel at your own discomfort.

See you there!
