Anyone ever been to rumble on the ridge? Is it worth the drive for a day?

My opinion. NO!!! Laughing I have been there several times. And every time I go, I say never again. Until someone talks me into it again.

The Good~~Great trails. Lots of variety. Plenty of mud. Directional loop. 30+ miles. Good food.

The Bad~~Way too many riders. In the thousands. You may wait in line a couple of hours just to get it. Not kid/timid rider friendly. Too many GNCC think-they-are's that will pass you where there is not room to pass. Too much of your riding is done in idle. There are soo many bikes that it just isn't fun (to me).

The Adena Sportman's Club that run the ROTR rides uses them as a fund raiser. They use the money to purchase more land, equipement etc. I have rode it with club members. It is a fantastic place to ride...

I did hear that alcohol is no longer overlooked and that helmet use is encouraged. That would help a lot. It would likely thin the crowd that can't have their fun after the ride, or at least in moderation. Every time I've been there, at least one person gets hauled away.

Another fun place over that way is Hopedale Sportsman club. They too have two to three rides a year. Thanksgiving weekend is the one I went to for several years in a row. Then I discovered QC. Smile It also can be very crowded. They have very good food, especially if you like grilled chicken. It's actually smoked. The club members built their own smoker....ahhhh man...You better like mud too. A lot. Very Happy
