    Downieville gathering this year?

    Did not see any thread on D'ville gathering 2013 so decided to open one.

    Anybody going to Downieville in May?

    Was wondering if it was going on this year as well. Last year was my first - in a year filled with awesome riding, it was one of the weekends that stood out

    That is has been my favorite D'ville/Tahoe riding time for a long while.

    No way to know the timing of the first rains at this point. However, late September to mid October is often prime hero dirt time up there.

    some stoke from last year

    Hopefully this will happen again. Mills Peak is too good to pass up! It was my first time in Downieville last year and I had a blast. Maybe if we post up some pictures from last year, K-Maxx will begin to feel the inspiration.
