Ride

Sunday is no good for me. Kid duty. I am going to leave sat at 8:00am from chico. I think I am going to go to Chester via paradise, Philbrook lake, Humbug summit. Returning after food, gas, etc through lassen trail, Ishi forest, Ponderosa way to Cohasset/chico. Let me know if you want to come and we can pick a meeting spot.

Great ride

You guys missed a great Day of riding. 180 mi when all said and done. Went to Philbrook lake via sterling city. We use to own a cabin there when I was growing up. Haven't seen it for 20 years so it was cool. Then on to lake Almanor for a mid day swim and some lunch. Then it was back to chico through the lassen trail/Ishi wilderness area. Beautiful but VERY rocky into and out of the canyon. Sorry everyone was busy with chores. Today was my day to work at home.

Did yo really have to post that? After concrete, we had to do the next weeks shopping.......blah, blah, blah.......

About all I got to do with my bike is adjust the chain in between finishing the concrete........

I was cursed also. $45 in parts just to find I will have to replace the shower valve by cutting a hole in the wall behind it. no joy here. I did look at my bike when getting tools out of the garage! JB

I was on deck repair duty...

so no bike this past weekend. I would love to do the ride cycleman4 did someday. I always want to ride when I'm up that way. I remember camping when I was little (4-5 years old) up around Philbrook. That was the mid 60's, there was nothing there at that time. No camprounds, no boat launch, no cabins, nothing. All primitive camping.

Paskenta to Covelo

I keep watching this thread hoping the timing and destinations will match up with my availability. Like so many others I had other responsibilities lately that keep me busy. FYI- the road between Paskenta and Covelo has 32 miles of easy to ride Forest Service roads. From Covelo to Laytonville you can go paved or take a shorter dirt road. Any bike should be able to make that ride as long as the road is open. There are always signs up saying road closed but I have always got through without incident. Haven't been that way in a couple of years and there are now larger signs saying road closed. When I have gone this way in the past there were never any signs or blockades along the road, just at the beginning.

Road Trip

Made it home from my weekend visit down to Ventura. Total of 1,020, most of them on the I5. It took me about 9 1/2 hours on the way down, and about 8 hours on the way back. I was averaging 75-80mph today, and stopped about every 100 miles. No problems with the DR except for a tail light bulb going out.

Howdy y'all NorCal brothers... The (WRR mounted) gal and I (KTM LC4-E) were up that way and wanted to venture out from Eagle Lake (my friend's house). Our last ride (early September about the time it rained) was all slab down the 36 to the woods and then south.

I'd really like to find the nooks and crannies in and about the Lassen area and out into the NE desert area as well.

If anyone with any GPS maps in the area could provide that'd be great.

Also... We'll probably do this again next year if there is a couple that'd like to join us. She's a beginner, but she gets through most stuff until it gets REAL rocky. We don't get too far off the beaten path due to the risks of not having back-up.

Any recommendations would be great !

Thanks !

Brownsville to Placerville ride

I am doing the Brownsville to Placerville ride Oct 23rd and 24th. (big bike friendly) Ride to Placerville on Saturday (175 miles) and ride back to Brownsville on Sunday (125 miles).The Mosquito Rd. Bridge that crosses the south forkis of the American river just north of Placerville is under repair and won't be open until Oct 22nd. I wanted to wait until the bridge is open. Neat bridge and the approach to the bridge is cool. Should be good for Fall Colors by then.

If anyone is interested in the ride, PM me for more information.
