Jordan Hill

For the last couple of weeks I have been wearing a wrist brace on my right arm. I have ridden that loop to Philbrook twice in the last 6 months. Given the rough surface, even on the XT225, I think...

Enduro Man

Bobcat

[SIZE="3"]Ponderosa Way certainly has some history. My bobcat sighting was 'just off' Plum Creek pavement a bit closer to the dump. From your picture, you appeared to be a bit further up the road. ...

KyoXR, the only Bobcat I have ever seen was as well, off Ponderosa Way many years ago. I was a bit closer to pavement, you appear to be getting close to the Peligren turn-off. How far did you go? ...

Well the Nor-Cal TW-200 group had a great ride last Saturday. We started with eight riders (crazy 8's). Took Tehama Vina rd. to Foothill and over to Hogs Back. Rode over to Cohasset on Ponderosa...

At 65, I miss the freedom and access that I had. Yes, I resent the gates and the "no motorized vehicles" signs. However, at this point in my life I can recall 'zillions of trails to no-where'. ...
