Rides and Roads

We're Serious About Riding.

 

BMWBMW is made up of some riding fanatics. Great roads, and interesting rides are so important to us that we have put together a forum dedicated to ride stories and a collection of ride routes, here on this page. All from YOU, our dedicated members. If you have a ride route or favorite road, please feel free to submit them to the webmaster for posting here. Ride safe.


Ride Stories

Let's face it - sometimes you can't ride as much as you need to. Work, family, weather... some days you can't win. That's why the downtrodden rely on the exploits of others. You will find the best stories in our forum - choosing is a tough job, but inspirational reading.

Route Database

Sharing your favorite roads is just what you do as a rider. We are building a database of routes, that will soon include GPS/GPX storage. That means that you will be able to browse, choose and upload great rides directly to your GPS. Those of you who haven't jumped on the the GPS bandwagon have no reason to worry - every GPS documented ride will have a printable summary that you can stuff into your tank bag.

Here are the available GPS route files in GPX format. Right-click on the link and select "Save target as..." to store the file on your computer:

Dave Keuch Memorial Loop
Washington Monument & More
Shepardstown Loop
BMWBMW COG Moonlight Run

Great Roads

This section is much less formal then the Route DB. Just a big list of great roads we've discovered... It's up to you to chain them together into a great ride.
