So any first hand knowledge, or who I can contact?
I'm hoping to go before this summer weather ends.
Thanks
Did you call the FS station in stonyford or the district office? I'm surprised the stonyford station wouldn't know, but I guess they don't have much field staff this time of year. Someone in Covelo might know, if there's anyone at the black butte store they would know, or maybe the covelo FS or gas station. I would guess it is passable with as little precip as we've had, though it's almost always closed this time of year.

Thanks, I called the main office on the FS website, I also called some place in Covelo that was on the FS website that sells FS maps the lady didn't have any idea.

Anybody else I could check with or a number would be appreciated.

Looks like rain/snow next week.

Hit Clear Creek and Pinnacles the last 2 days. Fun times, no traffic, lots of dirt.

Hey guys!

I started a Group Buy for a Unifilter pre filter. Just check out the thread and post in there if you are interested. As said in the thread, it is not only for the tigers, i can add any other buy in there but YOU need to send me the link of your filter.

Please pass this on to other NorCal riders if they are interested! They ship from Oz, so shipping is kinda high... hence then group buy!

Ride safe!

A little late to say "Happy New Years" but thanks for the great ride reports John - that Morroco one especially looked really cool. Hope to see you guys out on the trails again this year - after I finish healing up my collarbone. - cheers

Thanks for sharing this cool CC ride report, Chris. Also I've always wanted to hike in the Pinnacles - looks like a neat place. Can hardly wait to get out with you guys riding again. Need to heal up a collarbone first.

Hey Mike Z!

Broken collarbone? Ouch ... guess I'll have to go poke around Orange Crush to get the story on that ...

Did you guys go on a Thanksgiving Ride again this year?

Thanks for the kind words about ride reports ... I did a Morocco one on BARF:
http://www.bayarearidersforum.com/fo...d.php?t=446727

I'd have done it here on BAARC, but there were too many photos ...

The SFMC is going to have a crew in Death Valley at Furnace Creek campground Jan 29th - Feb 3rd ... Bicycle Phil and DaveRMS from ADV Race forum, kallehof from Old's Cool ... think that overlaps DVDAZE 2014 ...

The SFMC will have a crew in Baja starting down on Feb 22nd, too ...

Hope your collar bone heals up and that you're back riding again, soon!

BAARC Forever and
Happy New Year!
-- Cary and John A

Hey, you guys are home! Welcome back.

Loved the ride report with the nice BIG photos. Looks like you guys had a great trip!
I'm so happy that Cary got to wear her scarf in Morocco/Paris...
It's like summer here in the bay area! Way too warm for knitwear.

Oh no! Sorry to hear about your collarbone, Mike!
Which one did that to you - big bike or little bike?
Hope you heal up quickly!

Hey Kelly!

Hope you and Matt had a happy holiday season ... Cary looked great in your scarf, and she wore it every day in Paris, where it was cold and rainy!

Hope to see you guys around a campfire this spring,
xox,

Thanks Kelly,

got pitched off the little bike when the front hit a big hole in a cut grass field. Healing is going well - be back on the bike in Feb. Hope you guys have a great 2014 - hard to beat 2013 from all the great riding you guys did.
