Trials event info

The Rocky Ridge Trial is this coming weekend.
Saturday is the Vintage/beginner trial. {This is the day I need checkers.}
Sign ups are at 11:00 and Riders meeting at noon. Trial starts 12;15.
This is a shorter day with sections starting to get shut down at 3:30.
Very good way to see the sport at a level that anyone could participate. There are 5 to 6 lines at every section. Different degrees of difficulty.

Sundays event starts at 10:00 with sign ups at 9:00. This Event is more tough and riders are expected to be able to ride at a much higher level. This is maybe more spectacular to watch and sections are a little higher on the hill. But we are on a fairly small piece of land and you should be able to make it to most sections.

My work hat comes off for the Sunday Event as I plan on competing and my buddy from Chico will be in charge. It is a very relaxed time and you can stand just a couple of feet from the riders as they compete. if you want more detail get a hold of me.

This is from the last ride up to Ball Rock, a lot of paddling through snow (I fast forwarded some of that) this was the first time the GoPro started fogging up so that's what you see in the video, this was the first year they left all the gates unlocked and open year round that I know of since I started heading up there.

I hear this all the time. I tell people where and when and they don't show up. {except Matt } But if you are serious about it. Then you can come to the next Sac Pits event. It is East of Petaluma, out by Marshall.
Directions: Hwy 101to Novato. Take the San Marin Exit. Go west on San Martin Dr ,right on Novato BLVD. right on PT Reyes/Petaluma Rd. Left on Hicks valley rd. Left on Marshall-Petaluma rd.
May 17th and 18th. It is a very private motorcycle club M.C.M.A.
Overnight camping available.

This is the only event anywhere close to the coast. And not to sound rude but I bet no one reading this comes. I challenge you to show up and enjoy this great spot. No riding is allowed other than the competitors. But you could walk to several of the sections and we have a killer dinner Saturday night. Flyer at www.sactopits.org

Not sounding rude....

"And not to sound rude but I bet no one reading this comes."

...but maybe a little bitter.
But I understand, there's been more than once where I've been stood up by guys that I've made arrangements with to go riding, no phone call, no e-mail, nothing. I've never let it keep me from having a good time, just mildly changes the ride.

That figures. I have a kayak fishing tournament in shelter cove that weekend. I dont mean on the coast. Redding, red bluff, shasta are all a doable drive from arcata. (Actually closer than petaluma). Ill keep my watching for the events.

Who wants to ride their dirtsickle?

My wife and I moved to Chico, ca 6 mo ago and I haven't been able to find someone to ride with. I'm a little bit of a chicken when it comes to ridding alone.

I like fire roads, single track, sand, mud, maybe a jump or two.
So if anyone wouldn't mind to add me to their next trail ride my email address is:

untried.cadence@gmail.com

Welcome to the Chico area...

You should be able to find some riding partners in the area. I'd be glad to show you around but I'm laid up for about another month. I'm expecting to be back in the dirt in a couple of months. Nothing wrong with riding on your own as long as you lower the risk factor.

I ride local singletrack a good amount,but some people hate it when I take em up to the trails. I ride a 300XCW and that's the sort of bike mostly seen up there.

Also the paradiseridgeriders.com are the only local riding club,there are dualsport riders,singletrack riders,all ages and abilities show up. And then check out ironmandualsport.com online,Bob's a local guy and puts on great dualsport rides starting in June.

Hey dude,
I'm ready to ride and looking for a riding buddy as well. I'm in process of planning a ride this weekend with another dude who just moved here from Sierra Nevada area. I'd like to check out Hogsback Lane from Red Bluff up into the Lassen Nat. Forest but I haven't met anyone who can ride that trail with me yet. I like long but fun rides from Chico to Covelo, or Redding to Lewiston and they're mainly 50/50 dirt and pavement. I'm interested in single track and also realize I'm not 18 years old with a full throttle 2 stoke anymore. I'm a Euro Thumper middle aged dude who hauls ass and been riding all my life. email me back and I'll keep you in the loop. Welcome!
