OK.  Some changes to the 65 and 100 mile routes.  All new information is updated on the website.

TXDOT just the other day, seal coated a portion of FM1243 (wasn't supposed to happen until late May or June) -- that portion south of Hwy 22 down to Hwy171 -- about 6 or so miles.  Don't think it will be good by Waggin' Trail time.

So, the 65 miler is now a 60 miler and the 95 miler is now a 103 miler.  I tried very hard to keep it right at 100 miles but this is the best I could do.

Just as a point of information.  The new 103 miler does a double loop from Irene -- Bynum -- back to Irene.  So you go from Irene south to Malone, then northwest to Bynum, then east to Irene and then do that loop again.  Once back at Irene after the second loop you turn left and go north on FM308 back up to Mertens, then to Brandon and then 8 miles or so to Start/Finish.

For those who might like (60 miles is to short -- 103 miles is to long), if you only do the loop (Irene - Bynum - Irene) once and then turn north on FM308 and back to Mertens, Brandon and Start/Finish, that would be 80 miles (give or take).  That route is fully supported by in-place Rest Stops.

See ya on this Saturday, May 4th.
