Spode Daddy is Spode Daddy - Doyle Mountain Ride 3/8/2015




Trail Boss – Spode Daddy

Riders – Chad, Dave

Dave provided the video & most photos  from his Sony Action Cam.

It was Chad’s 1st ride in 7 years & his very 1st ride on his 2015 200 XCW. My 1st ride with Dave.

We parked at Missile Base Road & Oreana Cutoff . 

Rode past the Missile Bunker  > Poison Creek > Half Moon Pass > Doyle Mnt > Savage Crossing >  back to the trucks

Loop ~ 62 miles   , I hit reserve about 50 yards from the truck.


Top of Half Moon Pass.



Me on the ground . Victim of whiskey throttle. Was sitting waiting for  Chad & Dave at a turn, took off sitting down , got bumped , lit up the rear wheel.


Met another group . I crossed paths with them last summer near Dead Wood.

It took a few passes to find the final leg of single track into Savage , then the last ~1/3 of the trails was blocked by
Junipers that were cut last year. We had to take the Side Hill trail to the road into Savage.
