Only if we take Iowa hill road at least on the way back. I've only rode it eastbound in the past.

Oh hell with the dirt. I'll take the Duc and we can go carve up some pavement. Iowa hill's good with me (just cant miss any of those corners going down that 15% grade or they'll be fishing you out of the North Fork of the American). Maybe Mosquito Ridge, foresthill, whatever. How about the same Foresthill exit Starbucks at 10:00?

Ahhhhhh, Screw it! The bikes will be fine. I'd rather ride than change tires, etc.

I'll be there at 10.

Today's Sat...
Looks like the weekend is gonna be good weather. I said I'd post up if I got a ride going. Still not sure on that, but I can tell ya now...
It would be sunday if it happens. And yes, I'm still considering the route would be from roseville, north, then round and back through foothills and folsom.

So I think Nytro was on that ride the other day. I just saw a couple huge wheelies then he was gone.

Great ride guys. I forgot how much fun paved rides can be. Thanks again to Steve and Trevor for waiting on my slow ass.

Yep, a good ride. My map says we were at 5,000 feet where MRR was covered with snow.

Mosquito Ridge Rd



Iowa Hill Rd

RocknTroll...
Good to see ya chime in on this...
Like I said in the previous post it's not looking like it's coming together. And if so, what about a 1 week postponement?
Like sunday march 10th?

Here's a better feel for what I had in mind.
Meet at A+S or something. fydiment rd and such to get up to lincoln and mccourtney.
Cut over on long valley and get to wolf road. cross 49 and get out to red dog. get over to colfax and down yankee jims to shirtail. Up to iowa hill road through sugar pine to finning mill road. Down to michigan bluff and Gorman ranch road out mosquito and foresthill to the confluence. through cool and back on salmon falls.

That kinda ride. Little bit's of dirt in there...
Anyone in the sac val area interested?

Although I have a plated XR, and road bikes, I'm thinkin I'll take this...
Street and dirt...

Took a little ride yesterday and tried to avoid (most of) the snow and ice. Turns out on of the riders on the ride (who put the ride together actually) made a video of the trip. Have a look:

Yeah, Good ride on Thursday Gents. A bit of twisty tarmac is always a hoot!

Looks like you had a good ride too SierraJeep.

I got a good dose of dirt too this weekend. A couple buddies from up north came down to do a tour of the fun stuff we have around here. Only problem is we found a lot of mud, and now I have three orange bike that are ten times more orange as they're covered in our wonderful clay mud from top to bottom! What a horrible problem....

A couple pics from from Thursday on Mosquito Ridge
