Yep, was there last Friday on a spur of the moment run. They're really trying to make it a good place to ride. Now, if they'd just ban the kwads...

Thanks Catfish. It was fun to get out during the week. Noone there and I desperately need the saddle time to get the new bike sorted out and get myself back in the swing of riding after so many years off.

Lets do it again soon!

Thanks for the offer. I can get to Hollister as quickly from my place as I can get to Frank Rains, and the trail selection is better. Much cooler now also.

You ever get up to Carnegie? That's the closest place for me for a quick day ride.

It was good to meet & ride with you Ed. How about next Tuesday?

I should have brought my camera on the trail. The Renz hills were covered in purple lupines. Then we got to the Tiger trail and it was closed. Apparently the horny tiger salamanders come out on the trail once a year for a BIG ORGY!!!


I've got errands to run in Tracy next Tuesday (May 7th), so I'll head out to Carnegie that morning for some singletrack first. Temps back to normal by then. Look for my dark-green Tundra between Moto Mart & the restrooms at 9am. Let me know if you are coming!

Moto Mart is closed on Tuesdays, so Carnegie was empty most all day. Some moisture in places, dry elsewhere. Powdery where they previously did trail maintenance.

There was a hare scrambles or some kinda of competitive event recently, and the singletrack is pretty choppy now. Rode 57 miles , but needed ibuprofen & a rest break to finish the 3rd loop.


The RAT BASTARDS are still TEASING me with the view of a new serpentine trail cut into the hillside above the mx track & below the SRI Loop, BUT the new gates are locked and they stopped the trail cut about 10 feet before it would join the SRI Loop.


Off to Sequoia & the green hill next week (Tues-Wed)! PM me if interested.

Catfish not going to make Sequoia but lets get something on the books for next week. I should have all my gearing sorted by then so I will be ready for more tight single track!

Maybe we can get up to the forest somewhere...?

FYI - the last few days have given us some much needed rain. Rained again this morning for about 30-40 mins.

Yes, NOW would be the time to ride, if I had time. D'OH!

I'm kinda busy for the next 2 weeks. Ed & I have been talking about a day ride on June 13th at Stonyford.

Anyone else interested in Stonyford then? Or maybe a Knoxville-OHV + Buck Island + swimming in Cache Creek DS ride if its too hot for Stonyford?

Looking forward to getting out there. I am doing everything I can to protect that date!!

I might try to sneak out next week as well if I can do it. I will post up to see if anyone is available in the next day or two.

Did you get out for a ride last week?


I had a nice ride with some of the local crazies recently. It started on Friday so it counts, right?


Friday evening in Ukiah ...


Safety break after Cow Mtn & trail 14...


A FAST ridgeline above Clear Lake...


A break after Middle Creek and trail 7...


Ms.Beta on Hull Mtn...


Men will be boys...

Tommy Turbo & his 1000 Vstrom on the Hull Mtn stairs ...


A few big trees ...


Wade heads the gas line at the Honeydew store...


A day for Pacific views....


Usal Creek to the ocean...


Locals getting some sun...


At the beach...




A gorgeous day...




The things you can find on Sherwood Road...


And many great creek crossings to finish off the ride!





Ms.Beta finally needs a valve adjustment (6100 miles, 246 hours).
Both intake valves have tightened up to minimum spec. If I can
find the right 10mm shims tomorrow, I want to ride THIS
Thursday somewhere.

Thursday forecast temps will be HIGH (86 or higher) everywhere,
except Hollister at 78 mid-afternoon.

Where would you like to ride on the 13th? Early for some cool morning?

Hey Catfish thats looks like an awesome ride. Weekends are tough but that would have been a good one to try to get out for!

I didn't make it out last week. I am still healing the ankle and I needed to give it a rest that day after a setback in physical therapy.

I have kept this Thursday open so I am ready to go. We were originally thinking Stonyford? But as you point out it will definitely be cooler in Hollister.

I am in either way. Let me know.

Ed
