    BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR the 10 day forcast at weather.com is showing only a HIGH of 72 on the 11th..... BRRRRRRRRRRRRR




    which means it wil be cooler in the park (higher elevation) and cooler still at key's view!

    hopefully as the day gets closer it will be a bit warmer forcast (high of 72 for the day means during our ride time it won't even hit that!)

    we were thinking meet at 8:30 and ROLL at 9:00... that means it may BARELY be 60 degrees at that time... (it's currently 64 degrees at 9:30 and it's a warmer day today.)

    we could push it back to meet at 9 leave at 9:30 or even meet at 9:30 leave at 10? any earlier than 9 will be TOO COLD.... and we probably don't want to leave much later than 10.... it takes me a bit over 4 hours RIDE time to do this ride... so even leaving at 10 i would say the latest we'd get back would be 3 with stopping/regrouping (i don't think we'll want to stop too long at key's view cuz we'll be cold!)

    so let's get some input?

    roll time at:

    9:00
    9:30
    10:00

    Well, I'm carpooling back with Fixer who sweetly agreed to provide me a ride, so I defer to his vote (but I'm hoping that will be either 9:30 or 10:00... )

    I don't care when we start. I guess 10 is most convenient to me, but it doesn't really matter. Umm... is there a start location yet?

    For some of us camping the night before, will there be a fee to re-enter the park by bike the next morning? I don't mind paying, I'm just curious.

    Thanks caligurl. Hmm... 173 miles, and Google Maps says 3:20. Based on mileage alone, I would estimate more like 2:30. Hmm... how long does it take to go the 40-odd miles from the intersection of I-10 and CA-62 to the start location?

    I may be able to make this. I've been wanting to do some camping before it gets too cold so I could kill two birds with one stone.

    I'll know more after this weekend.

    Yeah, but my question was if you leave the park by car or bike and re-enter by bike, will they charge you a single entry fee?

    i'm not sure how they'll work that.... i would make a BIG assumption that at least the driver of the car could get back in on the bike... just make sure to bring your Park entry pass with you... not sure what they'll do about passengers that got in with you... they may have to pay the $5.00 to get back in???? i guess to be "safe"... just carry $5.00.... i do know with the annual pass... we only buy ONE for the family... the two of us....

    jsigone.... you won't be parking IN the park.... you'll be parking, for the ride, back down in luckie park.... we're leaving from outside the national park.... riding up the hill.... and into the Park.... then back down to luckie park!

    Right I keep re-reading this and cant figure that out either...but I think it does cover that..since the single entry fee says bike, or as a passenger in a vehicle...I would think the vehicle charge would cover you on a bike also...
    Everyone just needs to remember to carry their receipts at all times!
