There are a dozen or so dirt-bikers arriving from somewhere and it looks like a lot of fun. However, I'm looking for quiet and hope to avoid them while out on my afternoon ride.

So I listen intently while the tour guide explains to the group the route of the next leg of the trip, which will include the old Mojave Road.
