APRIL 5th & 6th, 2003

Middle Tennessee Dirt Riders, Inc. in cooperation with Volunteer State Trail Riders Association is proud to announce their second annual spring ride at the famous Loretta Lynn’s Ranch April 5th & 6th, 2003. This event will be for BIKES ONLY and all MTDR and VSTA dirt bike riding members are invited to attend.

The registration fee covers one and/or two days. The event will be rain or shine and the registration fee is nonrefundable. Rain generally improves the trails at Loretta’s and water drains off quickly.

All Preregistered riders will still need to come to registration during designated registration hours to sign release forms and pick up your wristbands.

If you are not a MTDR or VSTA member, you may still preregister. However, you will be required to join one of the organizations at registration during designated registration times.

The Trail:

The trail will be clearly marked and you can ride it at your own pace as much as you like during the open trail hours. There will be riding opportunities for all from beginner to advance. The trail lengths and locations will be announced at each of the rider meetings. The main trail’s difficulty level will be moderate. Some of the hill-climbs are tough, and occasionally the trail may be narrow and/or off-camber. Some of the areas are rocky and other areas are normal dirt. There’s usually little or no mud, even after a rain.

Camp Ground Information:

Camping is $20.00 per site per night per family up to two vehicles. Sharing of the campsite will entail an additional 20.00 per living quarters (i.e.. tents, trailers and motorhomes). Any additional vehicles are $5.00 each. If you park in a campsite, expect to pay camping. Please stop at the camping registration office when you arrive. If the office is closed when you arrive, please settle up with them first thing the next day. Camping will be permitted in the upper and lower campground.

Free Day Parking is only allowed in the lower campground in designated day parking area.

The campground has three nice bathhouses and a camp store that carries a little bit of everything from groceries to camping supplies. Loretta Lynn’s will offer breakfast and Lunch concessions at reasonable prices located at the cook shack and near the Camp Store. You’re on your own for dinner.
