Kennedy Meadows IV (Kern Plateau) - August 19-21, 2011
 
Well folks, it's that time of the year again! Riding the Kern Plateau is something many of us look forward to each riding season. This riding weekend has something for everyone. Trails range from wide fireroads to narrow single track. There is something up there for everyone to enjoy. There is also sweet single track for both the intermediate rider and expert rider. The single track up there offers spectacular views of lush meadows and flowing creeks to dip into.

We'll be camping at the same spot as previous years: Troy "OVERFLOW" (pull in and go all the way to the back).


Troy OVERFLOW GPS coords:

(entrance off main road)
N36 03.825 W118 14.376

(actual camp location)
N36 03.809 W118 14.434


Last year was a great time. Check out the ride report here:

:kumbaya
I have purchased one 1/2 cord of firewood for this epic rally and everyone is welcomed to grab some for their personal camp spot (if you end up not hanging out at the main campfire).

A friendly reminder...I will be asking for donations to cover the cost of the wood and Rob.G's trouble for loading and hauling it up to camp.

All profits from the wood and t-shirts will be donated to the Adventure Rider website and The Blue Ribbon Coalition.

They do shrink a bit when laundered. I wear a size large for everything except tee-shirts and sweatshirts - then I get a XL and they are perfect.

The shirts are Port & Company (private label for Champion) 6.1 oz,100% cotton (same weight as a BeefyT) with commercial grade UV screen print inks. The imprint will outlast the shirt. Only first quality here. :D

From what I remember most (if not all) those logging roads are dead ends but there are lots of 'em. Small bikes are more suitable for the miles and miles of fun single track though. Man I need a small bike!

Off Limits 06-30-2011 12:00 AM

Ive done the small bike thing my whole life, I need to camp off the bike. I'm drunk and gonna put the cafe bars onthe xs 400
