I was just checking out act dual sports ride website and saw "gone but not forgotten". Did something happen to Don and is actually no more? Anyone know?

I'm in Fair Oaks, and I don't know where. I can go north and/or east from there. Maybe I ride up Auburn Folsom road/lincoln hwy up to Yankee Jims road?

Looks overcast and chilly up here. Must be nice down in the valley. Who knew?

Who's riding in the morning?

Saturday A 50 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 49. East wind 6 to 8 mph becoming south southwest in the afternoon. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

I can cope with a 50% chance of it sprinkling a little bit. Thursday out on dirty Mosquito Road it dropped more than that and I got wet, but not cold.

So... Anybody want to ride early/ish in the morning? Yankee Jims is the plan, and Saturday looks better than Sunday.




Saturday Night A chance of rain showers before 10pm, then a chance of snow showers. Snow level 4300 feet lowering to 2800 feet. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 33. South southwest wind 5 to 7 mph becoming calm in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Sunday A chance of snow showers before 4pm, then a chance of rain and snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. Light and variable wind becoming northwest around 6 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

DS ride Saturday, Feb. 2nd. Leaving FH 8:30-ish

Full group. Thanks for your interest. DS ride Saturday, Feb. 2nd. Leaving FH 8:30-ish

Full group. Thanks for your interest
Headed north-west, riding all day. Mostly dirt. Mix of double and single track, some challenging small and bigger climbs, maybe some water crossings, etc. Prolly ride-arounds for the harder stuff and easy/close bail out to I-80 most any time. Prolly not beginner friendly if big bike or big bike friendly if beginner.

StuInFH screwed with this post 01-31-2013 at 07:57 AM Reason: Ride filled up.

I'm in - of course.
Big Bike - check
Beginner - depends on your perspective
Friendly - probably not

The old 650L with Giant Loop Bags - Is that OK?
Stupidity will make up for the lack of talent!

I was just talking to a friend of both Don's and mine he said he had talked to Don just 2 days ago and that Don just wasn't scheduling any rides this year. You know he's been having a bit of a hard time the past couple of years. I'll try to call him the next day or two and see how he's doing. He's a great guy with great rides, I'll post here what I find out after I talk to him.

I think I'm in for Saturday, but not certain yet. I'll check in on Friday AM when I know for sure. A vague idea of the route would be appreciated. Just the first few roads is fine for am logistics.

Saturdays ride

Stu,

Great ride! I really like ridding with you and sean! Our Little group covered some nice dirt. We mesh well and dinner was fantastic. We did about 60 miles of single track, fast paced and fun. Total miles was under 100. No bike issue, no broken body parts.

I live in Sac! Just rode Salmon Falls to Foresthill to MRR yesterday, hadn't done that in awhile. Was going to get up early and do MRR again today but didn't happen. Not sure I will ride today since its already 1:30.

I'm free weekends and possibly some weekdays. Just lemme know! I like to just take it easy and enjoy the ride, still getting used to my Tiger 800.
