A Brief History of the PDR
In 2009, the central point was changed from Allis State Park to Silver Lake State Park. The last-minute change added some unnecessary time on paved roads. The 2010 route incorporates more dirt roads around Silver Lake and omits a section that turned out to be a little too rough for some riders in 2009.
Significant changes have been made to the southern route for 2012. Partially in an effort to keep the northbounders from getting first crack at Saturday night's food, partially just to add more dirt to the southern section, the route has been increased from 130 to 165 miles. Paved sections between Townshend and Windham and around Cavendish have been mostly eliminated and lots of new dirt has been added.
