The time is almost here! Everyone is getting the last things together to head towards Easton.
For all of our First Timers joining the Ride this year or thinking about joining in the future, a recent First Timer wrote out a bunch of questions and answers that we get about how it all works. We've had some input from other members on our collective experiences and what we would have liked to know before we joined the Cross State Ride that very first time. This is a wonderful experience, but it is a BIG undertaking if you are joining us for the entire 18 days or even for just a few. We are still working on organizing this FAQ and cleaning it up, but we have had numerous Members provide feedback that it includes some excellent information for our newest participants. Enjoy!

The annual ride is special, both because it is long enough to feel like a wagon train and because it covers many different landscapes. You will ride through wheat fields, cattle ranches, basalt rockeries and forests. You will cross bridges and go through tunnels. You will have time to fall into the rhythm of the trail, meet others and enjoy the landscape ”up close and personal.” You will meet many people who come back for this ride year after year, a testament to this unique experience.
