What's the chance anyone here is going on the Edelweiss Copper Canyon trip in April? A buddy and I are registered but I think they're still looking for more people.

Edelweiss ( ) does tours all over the world. We were originally looking to do our next one in the Alps (drool...) but then we found this one which sounds fantastic and is more convienient for us this year.

I can't link the PDF file so I'm just posting the text. PM me w/ your e-mail address if you'd like the PDF.

April 2007

We did go down Copper Canyon this year. It was an andventerous trip. Most of the ride was through incredibly beautiful scenery. Some of the route was demanding, especially when the small group of 4 riders hit some dirt, gravel or construction always present in this area.

While the tour is possible on black top all the way, those venturing off on some smaller roads do get that extra kick they need.

When we say SCOUTING we mean SCOUTING! The route is planned, but there will be alternatives, that you might be asked to explore. In the evening we‘ll all sit together and exchange our experiences of the day, trying to determine the best route for future tours! Hotels, motels, meals will be good, o.k. and one or two a little basic. There will be a support vehicle for defective motos, luggage and the like. But
don‘t expect to be pampered on this SCOUTING COPPER CANYON TOUR. It‘s going to be a test for future Edelweiss tours through this canyon, which has bigger dimensions than the Grand Canyon in the US.

You must be an experienced rider on small curvy roads!
Are you up to it? Than sign up! It‘s going to be a select group!
