ride to Placerville?

Wow, I would be interested in doing this ride to P'ville. I'm usually limited to just one day rides however, with Sunday being my best day to ride. can do weekday rides with advance warning. will usually be riding a Cagiva GranCanyon. JB in Oroville

I think I am going to do a little pre riding to make sure this route is big bike friendly. I' ll let you know. Don't want to have riders tag along and start throwing rocks at me because it is no fun.

I went and did the pre ride this passed weekend. Lots of twisty back roads, easy fire roads, one lane bridges over beautiful rivers. Stoped for gas and lunch in Foresthill. Good ride.

I was out and about on Sunday(my B-day) I rode from Chico up centerville road, popped out above Magalia,up skyway then to Stirling city,then P line road over to Concow(dirt) county road,then took Concow road to R line road back over to Stirling city. I visited a friend there and then mostly pavemento back to Chico and down Honeyrun. Nice 105 mile jaunt with little or no traffic on the dirt roads luckily. All pretty easy roads. I took my DRZe 400 as it slides much better then the DR650. Some great swimming spots where the roads cross bridges and creeks.

Heres a pic of a local race that happens in Cohassett every year right after thanksgiving,great spectating at the mudhole!

still hope that Sunday will be open for me.
I didn't think there was any pavement west of Paskenta, but there seems to be at least a few miles of pavement headed west of Elk Creek area on Alder Springs rd. I have not been west of all those big towns out there like Chrome and Newville.
