    Thursday Night Ride..............................................

    Here it is Wednesday night already I have been so busy I forgot about getting a Thursday night ride message out until Lori reminded me what day it was.

    How about meet at the parking just above the restrooms at the top of the Dam at 6 pm. Ride to the Saddle Dam via the lower route and back on the upper route and up the Man Way?

    See you there if you can make it.

    MONDAY NIGHT RIDE !!

    Jim called and said that due to severe weather and mud that he is not going to ride tonight. He wishes to cancel tonight's ride.

    Jim will be up at the parking lot at the spillway tonight at 6 pm to catch anyone who does not get the message.

    He also said that if a group wanted to go anyway that would be their decision. So, officially the ride is canceled however if anyone wants to try it, go for it.

    ... and if we just ... Thursday Night Ride

    I am thinking there will not be a Thursday night ride. The Weather Channel forecast earlier stated an 80% chance of rain Thursday day and a 90% chance of rain Thursday evening.

    The weekend may be our next opportunity to ride. I will pass on any information I get about any rides.

    Monday Night Ride.
    Let’s meet at the Saddle Dam at 6 PM Monday night. There may be rain so gear up and charge your lights. If it’s not raining we can ride around the horse camp area and then back and up towards the Visitor Center.

    If it is raining there may be too much mud towards the horse camp then we can ride to the Marina & up to the Visitor Center and back.

    Enjoy The Ride, Life is Short!..........

    Saturday Ride.............................................. ........
    I see on Face book there is a bunch going on a road ride around the Buttes on Saturday. I don’t want to take away from that ride and I don’t have a road bike but I want to ride.

    So if anyone is interested I plan to ride to the North Fork Saturday morning at 9am, meet at the spillway parking area (was still free parking last time I looked.)

    Thursday Night Ride II.................................
    Y’all missed a nice wet one. I rode up and over in a good rain and when I got back to the parking lot from that nice long down hill I felt pretty good. So I decided to ride across the Dam and back.

    There was not a car or person in sight, I got out into the middle of the road and headed across the Dam. I started going faster and faster and still felt good. Finally I am on the big ring in the highest gear I can get into and I am flying across the Dam. Just me and some rain, no cars, no people, just the sound of my tires speeding across the asphalt. In no time al all I made it to the other end and, you guessed it, I still felt good and was looking forward to a just as exhilarating ride back across the Dam.

    So as I got to the end I started my turn to head back and then, and only then, did I realize that I had been riding with a strong tail wind. I made my turn and there it was the dreaded headwind and a strong one too. I’m heading back and pretty soon I am not on the big ring in the front anymore but I am pushing as hard as if I was. I got another lesson, I realized that there are 2 kinds of rain, there is rain and then there is “face rain”.

    You can’t ride and look straight down because you don’t want to crash so when you look forward in a head wind there it is the face rain!

    Meet at the parking just above the restrooms at the top of the Dam at 6 PM. We will head up and over, probably take the horse trail to the Saddle Dam, back the lower trail and do the Grand Canyon loop and back up the man way.

    Charge your lights, below is the Monday forecast looks dry until really late tomorrow night.

    Just a reminder. With all the rain and now really nice weather mosquitoes could be a problem. Last time we were out near the Saddle Dam there were a lot of mosquitoes.

    Might want to consider some protection.

There will be a little walking and we will get wet. Meet at The Cal-de-sac 6:00 leave soon after. If we do this with few breaks no lights needed. But just in case bring maybe bring one.

    We will be offering all kinds of outdoor outings. It might be a good option to involve beginner-to-intermediate MTBer family and friends, in a safe group setting. Check out the web site:

    Due to illness I will not be riding tomorrow and Jim is out of town. If you want to ride I think the Saddle Dam to the Visitor’s Center is the least muddy. Someone will need to respond to all to set up a ride.

    The rain is forecast to end late tomorrow, there is a 50% chance of rain in the evening, sun sets at 7:40

    I will see y’all out on Thursday.

    How about the Saddle Dam tomorrow at 6 PM. Might be a good time to ride the Loafer Creek area before it gets too dusty. Weather sez about 71 degrees tomorrow at 6 PM, no chance of rain until Tuesday let’s mount up.

    I've never ridden Oroville trails, but I've done lots of biking in upper Bidwell park in Chico and want to check out some other scenery. Do you guys have scheduled rides, and are they open to newcomers? I have a friend that works in City Hall there that wants to check out the local trails also.

    There are a few groups here that ride regularly. I can only speak about one group that rides every Mondday and Thursday evening. We usually start at 6 PM and do a one to two hour ride, we meet at different locations and travel different rides.
    For these rides I post the meeting place and time, I post here and at LOBO (Lake Oroville Bucycle Organization) I also have a e-mail group that I send info to. If you want to provide your e-mail address I will add you to the group. I just send the info and we ride with who ever shows up. No obligation to ride or answer the e-mail.
    There are aother groups that ride sometimes with this group and ususlly they ride on Tuesdays and I think on Saturdays as well, I would call them advanced riders.
    Everyone is welcome, a helmet is required and we always ride with who shows up. The Monday and Thursday group rides year around, we ride the trails at night in the winter and in the rain. Right now we are heading into the best times.
    If you want additional info you can call me at 533-3575

    Let’s ride the Burma Road way out then cut up and over to the falls. Jim sez’ let’s meet at 6 PM. This will be a longer ride so we can meet at the gravel parking just past the first bridge on the left on Cherokee Road.

    See below, a slight chance of showers (probably our last chance for precip until we start the night rides in November), sun sets at 8:07. We can discuss parking at the meeting place, if we think we can make it maybe we can park at the diversion pool access.

    So, 6 PM at the gravel parking on Cherokee Road just past the first bridge.

    Due to a sudden downpour and I think Jim was concerned that he may get mud in his chain or his teeth we will ride tomorrow at 6 PM.

    Same Bat Cave, same Bat Location just a different day. Meet at the gravel parking on the left just past the first bridge on Cherokee Road at 6 PM. We will ride way out the Burma Road then cut up to the falls and back via the trails on the hillside.

    No rain, sunset at 8:08 PM should be around 69 degrees at ride time

    Cul-de-sac tomorrow at 6 PM, North Fork it is.

    Jim sez’ Ok, Rider Bikes,
    It’s a ride out to the North Arm. We may have a new b with us Monday so it might be easy for some and go for others. All I ask is ride with the new b for a little bit to say Hi, after that you are on your way to an adventure you make it. So we'll see you at the start and maybe on the way back out. Monday 6:00pm at the cul-de-sac at the Dam

    Thursday June 10, 2010 Ride


    We have not done the Visitor’s Center loop for awhile and we have not done the Loafer Horseshoe loop for awhile. Might I suggest we do the Visitor Center tomorrow evening and consider loafer Creek area for Monday?

    Let’s meet at the parking lot just above the restrooms at the top of the Dam and head up to the Visitor Center, down the long way to the Marina, take the high route to the Saddle Dam and than back via the lower trail and a mini Grand Canyon (if not underwater) back to the Marina. Last but certainly not least let’s do the Man Way up and back.

    See you at 6 pm tomorrow.

    Sunday coming out of Potters, Lots of squirrels on the trail that day but they all scooted off, except for the last one. He just sat there on the side of the trail watching me approach, then at the last possible moment he darted across the trail and under my front wheel. Hit the frame and my leg, then finally took off back the way he came. Great fun!

    Let’s meet at the parking area just above the restrooms at the top of the Dam tomorrow at 6 PM. Plan is to ride down the Brad Freeman trail, a short way along the flume and on over to Gary’s crossing, back out and up, cross the road and ride up past the green pipe. Lots of down hill to start and lots of uphill to finish.

    See you tomorrow.

    How about the ride we talked about Thursday, leave from lot across from Green Line, out to Spencer and down the other side, then take the Trail of the Unknown.
    All we can do is try it.
    Biking Buddy mtbr57jim

    Here is the scoop. Last week when we came down Sycamore Hill Jim spotted a new trail that went off to the left, no one knew where it went. So being the Commander and Chief that he is Jim said let’s ride it! See you at the parking lot across from Green Line Cycle tomorrow at 6 PM.

    question about North Fork:
    I thought from the maps that it is a simple out and back, but ~3 miles or so after Cut Across I ran into a split in the trail. Turned around and didn't explore further, but where do the two forks lead? Is there an updated map that shows the latest additions?

    North Fork

    Not sure about a map update, they have been working on the trail. I have not been out to the end for awhile but I hear it is all the way through to the camp.

    Not sure where you hit the split I assume it was a sharp right turn that crossed a rocky creek bed that is dry right now. That is where you can go straight or make the 108 degree right. Make the right, cross the dry rocky creek bed and continue on I suspect it is another 6 or 7 miles.
