I'm going with "Hours". Oakland --> Santa Cruz is definitely an hour.

My last big ride was down to Pismo Beach, and it was serious suckage: had a flat on the hwy, and my motor did some weird at high RPM that I didn't much like.

I'm throwing my vote in for "SCAR". Steeeeekers! Heck yeah. If you need a graphic designer, hit me up.

Ok, how about a trip down to Big Sur area January 9-10. The riding will be fairly easy fire road stuff, but the veiws are amazing. Anyone and any bike is welcome. A more dirt oriented tire would be advised, as the roads will likely be wet and a bit muddy.


My plan is to camp at Kirk Creek CG then ride Los Burros Rd to Coast Ridge Rd, and up to Cone Peak on the first day. Day two we can ride through Hunter Ligget and the Williams Hill BLM land, then head back north to home.

Another option on camping is to camp along the ridge. This presents a problem with getting water and there will be no bathrooms or tables, but will be warmer and have less morning dew.

You will need to bring food and camping stuff (remember it will be COLD).

If there's interest I will put together a much more detailed description for this tip.

Cheers!

That's a good point Scott. This ride is dependent on weather and will be canceled if rain or snow is expected.

Williams Hill BLM - hmmmmm...

Don't know much about it - but I think I've been through there on 4 wheels.

From the BLM site:

"Williams Hill - About nine miles west of San Ardo on the Lockwood-San Ardo Road. Access is off of highway 101. Eighty-five hundred acres of public land are accessible, mostly along ridge tops. The area has fair hunting opportunities for deer and pigs. No facilities."

Todd, how are the roads/trails in there?

I am up for this!

Hey all

I live in Little River, some of the inmates have stopped by a few times, especially the Sheetiron wackos.

We could use my place as a base camp for attacking the area's dirt, Usal, Mattole, etc. I want to go more east of 101, I've done most all roads west of it.

But hey, everyday is a new day, right?

Little River is just south of Mendocino, 2.73 acres of redwoods and lawn

keep me in mind when planning north coast ADV rides

Mendo

I must have passed by your house a few times. Ex's in-laws live down that way :)

It's a great place and worth considering for a ride or two.

It's not closed yet. The rangers that work there are doing all that they can to keep it open and will definitely keep it open this coming weekend.

There have been quite a few different stories put out about Carnegie, but if you actually call there (see: http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/default.asp?page_id=1172 ) you can verify if they'll be open when you want to go.
