    BONC Gala ride this Saturday 5/11 10 am - South Yuba/Malakoff Area

    BONC Gala ride this Saturday - South Yuba/Malakoff Area

    Ride Start Time: 10 am

    ***Allow plenty of time to get there***

    We will start rides from the South Yuba Campground.
    It is a solid 30 minutes to drive from Nevada City to South Yuba Campground. It
    does include some dirt/gravel roads on the way. My Honda Civic makes it, but add
    a little more travel time if you have a low-clearance car. Once you go over the
    South Yuba River at Edwards Crossing, the road turns to dirt and climbs the
    ridge (couple miles). You will reach a 4-way intersection, stay on N Bloomfield
    Rd. Heading down the road a bit, you will see the South Yuba Campground sign.
    Turn right there, then look to your left and there will be a big parking area
    with restrooms. Meet here at 9:45 am, ready to ride at 10 am. Bring plenty of
    water and food.

    Directions from Auburn

    Depending on the turnout, we will try to have 2 rides.

    One will be a solid beginner/intermediate ride around Malakoff area. This ride
    will include 12.5 miles and 1200' absolute climbing.

    There will also be a solid intermediate/advanced ride which will be a loop that
    includes part of the South Yuba Trail. This ride has exposure and requires good
    bike handling skills. Poison Oak is prevalent on the South Yuba Trail, so plan
    accordingly.

    Hope to see you there!

    If you've wanted to ride the South Yuba, here is an excellent opportunity to check it out. The BONC ride leaders will show you the way (it can be confusing otherwise) and the trail could not be better IMHO.

    I just did the ride for the first time yesterday (I've been meaning to do it since, oh, 1998) and... wow. It delivered. Get out there if you can!
