that route works well on 2.25" tires :)
@ AARR « Mon 1:48:13 pm »
I’ll have to check later but my road bike has typical skinny tires (hard case’s)
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:24:48 pm »
what tire width do you ride? I Don’t recall
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:23:23 pm »
friend of mine has ridden most sections with 25’s
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:23:01 pm »
I’ve ridden the entire lenght (in sections) with 32’s
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:22:35 pm »
yes
@ AARR « Mon 1:20:36 pm »
Jet, could that route be done with a road bike?
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:12:53 pm »
shiny newish looking locomotive (rebuilds maybe? I dunno)
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:12:28 pm »
Oh, Saw UP 9923 leading UP 9920 and a twenty five car local here near the hotel.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:11:17 pm »
Welp. Time to get ready for work once agian. Sacramento-Houston-Chicago and then driving home today.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:06:43 pm »
google says that is 126 miles.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:04:33 pm »
For one of my rides I want to do Alma-Edmore-Greenville-Belding-Lowell-Saranac-St Johns-Owosso on the trail(S). Can do that entire route with almost no road mileage.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:03:13 pm »
pedal time can be less than 6 hours but with bathroom stops etc usually takes a bit
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:02:36 pm »
Need 7-8 hours minimum.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:02:10 pm »
HArd to fit them in with work and family commitments

I would love to do a century ride before summer ends but I’m not sure how feasible that will be. I have a hard time making time to ride right now.
@ Jetlink « Mon 11:42:21 am »
I need to get at least 2 but hopefully 3 in before the ODRAM this August.
@ Jetlink « Mon 11:42:05 am »

I like to train for my century ride on difficult days because it’ll make it easier on the day of the event. This is a practice I learned from my early days in school sports especially for football when we practiced twice a day during August.

weird to see all the landscaping changes the new owners are doing. neighbors aren’t pleased they are fencing off their yard. don’t even have a pet, just want privacy

went over to the old neighborhood today, hung with the neighbors for 5-6 hours.

One train was all 4 bay open hoppers. had 4 units leading, 4 mid train DPU’s and 2 DPU’s on the rear. All appeared to be online and working hard. The commodity was not above the tops of the hoppers so I couldn’t see what it was. I think the reporting marks were ROsomething something. Wish I had thought to pay better attention.
@ Jetlink « Sun 1:18:23 pm »
Saw 6 different trains. All of them had at least one set of DPU’s.
@ Jetlink « Sun 1:18:00 pm »
walky complete.7.13 miles. All along the UP railroad. Two lines meet near the Platform.
@ Jetlink « Sun 1:16:38 pm »
Wish they would do it. I’ll ride it again sometime. Just not sure when. Not high on my list. That section really isn’t that nice and enjoyable. Right along US 10 most of the way.
@ AARR « Sun 12:56:19 pm »
That’s interesting RD’sD

I have the specs at work for the Reeds City west aggregate. I was asked to go look at it. It is the DNR gradation but for natural stone. It’s not limestone and with out the binding material charateristic of limestone the material never truly sets up to a firm surface. I suggested adding 3 inches of crushed asphalt west to the first cross road. I don’t think they ever did it.

Seen lots of UP choos this morning

The pavement just east of Reed city is older and getting a little rough.

True. I’ve ridden the Baldwin Reed city section a couple of times. It is very similar material to the Owosso-Ionia section of the CIS trail. Not great when it was newly laid. Might be better now that it has had a few years to smooth out and pack in.
