This is a great way to meet a few!

The rides are not gnarly. I try to make them fun without getting people in over their heads.

If you would like to be on my email list, just shoot me a PM with your email address.

Cheers!
Gail
That sounds cool. Good on ya!

Bucks Lake DualSport ride

I want to go do the Bucks Lake Dual sport ride again, but I don't want to ride it alone. I laid it out a few years back and did the ride with a group. It has been about five years since I rode it. There may be down trees and what ever so some trees may need to be cut. The ride starts at my place in Brownsville and goes through Forbstown, the back of Oroville Res, to the Cascade area, across Milsap Bar, to Bucks Lake, (Half way Point Gas Lunch) Back into the woods, across Claremont Ridge 6,994 ft. back to LaPorte (pavement/dirt then Brownsville Pavement/dirt). About 184 miles. May not be able to complete the whole ride in one day if there are lots of down trees. But can do it over a couple weekends.
Anyone interested? It's not that difficult mostly Fire Roads, Trails and old log skids. Nothing butt puckering.

I have ridden a lot of the area in the past. If any of this interests you let me know.
