    I wouldn't be too concerned - there are a lot of options from the shuttle drop-off point, and no doubt there will be lots of different groups heading down different ways...

    dang, buddy reserved shuttles weeks ago for this weekend and yuba called and said they're overbooked and bumped him.

    I'd call and make sure you still have a spot!

    Does anyone have space left at their site for a girl and her toaster...aka honda element? Was able to make some last minute shift changes at work so Downieville here I come! Was hoping someone could give me a hand with the compression settings on my new fork too? Its the 36 Talas 160 with both high and low compression setting. I've only had it a few days, with one 5 minute DH run and I need some help?

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there,

    You guys planning a potluck or anything? or just massive cook your own? need some ideas of what to bring something besides beer and meat...those are a staple of the event. Any thoughts let me know? I know you guys are heading up tomorrow lucky bums but if you forget anything shoot me a txt or call and I'll pick it up no problem. is beer in bottle or cans better...i proffer bottle but the me, Any requests?

    Am new to MTBR but saw this thread and booked myself a camping spot. Hope you don't mind. There should be plenty of spare room at site 15 - even has room for a horse! Booked Fri, Sat and Sun nights.

    Hey everyone!
    Wanted to drop a quick note to let folks know that we have expanded our shuttle offerings for tomorrow. Due to high demand we have added a 10am shuttle and a 3pm shuttle, 11 passengers each. Hopefully this helps out anyone that was not yet able to get a shuttle.

    fer sure. I plan on doing all my riding on the Lakes Basin side. Depending on snow, I might dip into the western slope off Lavezolla Cr. Trail, but don't have any plans on "ending up" in Dville proper.

    we got there kinda late today, but I managed to talk four others into a loop from town. I saw mr crash, dbug, raf, and a few others before they left for forest city.

    Conditions were great!

    Did anyone else up in downieville this past weekend hear about the guy who RAN into a bear, and broke his bike and collarbone? I didn't believe it until I heard many confirm the rumor was true. I saw the ambulance but didn't know it was carrying someone off due to running into a bear!

    Wow! Did not hear about running into bears.

    I did chase a mule deer on 1st divide today. These deers make good pacers!

    Waking up in my own bed today with memories of the great experience is A+.

    Plus I don't have a scratch on me which is unusual

    Here's the bear story:
    A rider was going down Lavezolla trail at high speed when a full grown black bear shot out in to the trail and hit the rider from the side. The bear took out the wheels of the rider and ended up under the bike. They were tangled for a bit and the bear finally broke free and ran off. The rider ended up with a broken collarbone and the story of his life.

    Epic weekend. D-ville holds the best downhill runs I have done in continental US. It was also wonderful to hang out with all the familiar mtbr friends and meeting new faces. Thanks K-Max for organizing such an amazing event and everyone else who was there to make it all ultra spectacular.

    Fc- love the new mtbr bottle. You're always so generous! Thanks!

    It was great great weekend!

    My memories include:
    -- hiking loops on the Packer Saddle campground begging for a tea bag
    -- Mills Peak! Fooking Super Awesome!
    -- 3rd Divide - the more I ride it, the wider and faster it feels!
    -- FC's socks - 3 minutes after dipping legs in Pauley Creek, the feet were warm! Wooool Power!
    -- Jan and firestarting kung-fu
    -- K-Max's drumming was fantastic. The guy knows how to add spice to the song.
    -- Mountain Men Barbells, or "Strenght training with Bruce, in which I learned that a log can be broken by a rock"
    -- Stan's strips are great. Many a "ka-clungs" from the rim area, and not a single burp.
    -- Fixing torn tires with dollar bills
    -- Trying to keep up with people who were faster - that's a good place to stretch some skills (within reason)
    -- The beeerz! I gained some 3 lbs just by having the beerz!

    Good times...

    Super bummed I missed the shenanigans. But I am just a stoked that everyone had a good time. Downieville and its surrounding are a great place. Yuba Expeditions, SBTS and MTBR Norcal are role model stewards for our sport. It is exciting to hear about all three coming together for an Epic weekend.
    Kmax don't let me miss another cause all I know is there aint no party like a Kmax party and a Kmax party don't stop.

    So why I did not come?

    I was getting a new family member( it was worth it)

    It was a delight to finally check out Mills Peak with a great crew! It's refreshing to ride a purpose-built flow trail at Downieville, rather than a mining extraction route. It was also fun sharing camp site with Rhynolite who is a bit more charming than his moniker would suggest! Thanks K-Max for springing the party on our campsite, and to Jan and Bruce (aka Mr. Shred) for stoking the bonfire without burning the whole forest down. And of course thanks to Francois for providing the mtbr stoke and beer stoke... and Aaron for the sip of the row 2.... thing... from Russian River - that is the pliny killer, IMHO. (I have not tasted pliny the younger yet).

    Good times! Nice to see familiar faces at the bonfire, and meet new ones.

    Our crew just rode on the Lakes Basin side... some typical early June adventure riding in the Sierra



    Thanks Andy for the spontaneous, bonus Mills Peak shuttle yesterday!

    Bear story from the person himself:

    Scott Steinwert
    Hi Francis. Heard you guys were up here this weekend. It was crazy. The bear came out of no where running at full speed on a collision course for me. I could 't do much. I was coming down county rd 93 and we collided. I thought the whole time he was going to turn around and eat me. He took out my front wheel. I fell on the bear then the ground and broke my collar bone. My wife is sending you the entire story we submitted to the mountain messenger.

    I only took a few photos during the entire trip as I mostly enjoyed myself and the company. The photos below were taken on the Friday's evening. Jan made amazing camp fire and Viv's roasted marshmallow is to be remembered.

    Hi Francis. Heard you guys were up here this weekend. It was crazy. The bear came out of no where running at full speed on a collision course for me. I could 't do much. I was coming down county rd 93 and we collided. I thought the whole time he was going to turn around and eat me. He took out my front wheel. I fell on the bear then the ground and broke my collar bone. My wife is sending you the entire story we submitted to the mountain messenger.

    Here's a professional re-enactment of what sort of happened, starring Simba as Yogi:



    p.s. Glad Scott survived the encounter. Wow.

    Lost Jacket

    Did anyone find a dark blue north face jacket? Kyle, I think I might have left it in your camp.......

    I can remember slinging it on the back of a chair somewhere, but I know it's not here in Santa Rosa with me.

    Great riding and hanging out with everyone. I enjoyed the late night jam session with Kyle, with Monica and Eric performing dancing duties.

    If someone finds the jacket, please PM me.

    Your welcome Francis ! Thanks for letting me try the new bikes and the new tire.
    I left this weekend with a thought from my Burning Man adventures a few years back .
    There is a saying at Burning Man that goes like this.

    You better be prepared out in the hot desert and plan well at Burning Man or it's going to be a miserable experience for you and on the other hand if you show up with just the shirt on your back you will survive and be taken care of.

    There is a spirit of giving at BM like no other.

    Well, the MTBR Kick Off has the same flavor.
    I showed up with no bikes and ended up having two awesome bikes and new tires and lube and great beer and free shirts from the bike shop
    And great trail guides and food given to me that was very tasty and heat at night ( Great camp fire) when it is was damn cold I even broke my XTR pedal and Troy from Oregon took is pedal off and let me use it the next day.

    Yep I think you could say this event has the trails and the beauty but the real draw for me is the spirit of the people !

    Looks like it was a good time. Hopefully my schedule works out for next year.

    I'll be heading up next week. Any specific trails to avoid for now?

    when we headed up to the top sunday around noon, there were rumors thats sunrise still had snow patches on it.

    It was open, clear, and riding perfect except for 2-3 5ft sections that were easy to ride through. I'd imagine they've melted. Enjoy!
