    Lake Oroville Biking Buddie's

    Ok someone from VA was wonding why I have a Thread in All Mountain for a Monday Night Oroville Rides instead of The Cali.-Norcal so I thought Ok, that makes sense, I should start a New Thread in Calif-Norcal for the Monday Night Rides not in the AM (All Mountain) so here it is, (I think the reason is I wasn't looking at the right forum.) No wonder I wasn't getting any response from my Monday Night Rider's. Thanks to the guy from Va.
    So if you want to do some Monday Night Riding come on and check this site out. We ride just about every night rain or shine these guy's love to ride. Most of us go to the same church, we Welcome all rider's

    Are atheists welcome to ride? I just moved to Chico and have been riding Bidwell Park pretty consistantly. I understand that Bidwell gets closed when it rains too much and I hear great things about the Oroville trails.
    Take a look at and consider "liking" our VAR Facebook and VAR Instagram pages.

    We will need help at the lap counting desk, food serving, course marshals, course marking, registration. All of this is pretty simple, but many hands help spread the load and keep it fun for the organizers as well as the riders.
    Since there is a major horse event the weekend prior to our event, we may need to clean up the trails. Maybe the Tuesday and Thursday rides could push some poop off the trails?

    Ride On! Monday Night Ride will start at the cul-de-sac at the Dam 6:00pm leaving at 6:05 like that's going to happen. Out to the end of North Arm with the Range Rover Trail on the way back, have your lights ready to shine "This little light of mine I'm going to let it shine da da da da da"

    Thanksgiving Weekend

    Nice to hear from you. I will be here on Thanksgiving weekend and plan to get in a ride on Saturday and/or Sunday. When we ride it is usually about 1 to 2 hours.

    I am not the best rider around here maybe an intermediate rider, slow but steady uphill but make up for it on the downhills. Our rides are not technical, most trails are footpaths and there is a fair amount of ups and downs. Pick a day and approximate time and I can get an e-mail out and possibly get a small group.

    So, if you want to ride you can reach me during the day at 530-538-7639 or at home at 530-533-3575 or e-mail to mlmorgan@buttecounty.net.

    Mike

    Thanksgiving Ride

    Looking forward to hearing from you. We have several trails to pick from and we can ride anytime day or night. We have a cool group here and we ride all year, we have lights for night time rides during the week and rain gear for the wet weather. The only thing missing is windshield wiper blades.

    Call when ready,

    We'll be meeting at the parking lot across from Green Line Bike Shop. It will be a bit harder then last time, We're riding out to the end of the trail to where we are across from the spillway, then over to Gray's Crossing up Spencer Hill, (there is some up hill climbing with switch backs) and down the other side with more switch backs only down hill this time, one of two ways to go back, we'll talk about it after we get down the switch backs. Bring your good lights you will need them for this ride.

    ... and if we just ... Wednesday Daytime Ride

    Itís a Holiday Wednesday and some are off, how about a daytime ride? Letís leave from the cul-deĖsac at 9 am and head for the North Fork. We can go to the bench or all the way to the end, depends on what the group wants.

    Last week we saw new tracks going out the North Fork trail, State Parks had unloaded some equipment and it looked like they headed out that way. I wonder if they are working on the North Fork some more, only one way to find out.

    The weather calls for rain later in the day Wednesday so we should be high and dry in the morning.

    I will be out of town tomorrow and will not be up for a Thursday Ride when I get back. I sent an e-mail message. Maybe you can post something there by reply to all and schedule a time and place. Think about me when you are out there. I will be open for rides this weekend and Monday night for sure.

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

    Last Monday night ride was terrific. Rode from the Saddle Dam to the horse camp area then back to the Saddle Dam and on over to the Marina and on up to the top of the Man Way trail and down the Racetrack. Good ride almost 2 hours and the temperature was not bad. Jim got out manuvered by a bunny.

    Thursday let's meet at the parking above the restrooms at the dam. No rain forecast until Friday but warm clothes is a good idea. Charge up your lights, see you there.

It may be a little cool also. Sat. 6:45 Lakeside Mkt switch backs and thin trails nothing you can't handle :O

    You might want to look at these first: http://www.geomangear.com/index.php?...roducts_id=138

    Over $500 less and if you get the "Racer" kit it comes with an extra battery. I am thinking about getting two Racers. One for the bar and one for the helmet. Each one will have an extra battery. All for $250!

    ... and if we just ... Thursday Ride!!!

    I am up for a Thursday ride at 6 pm tomorrow. How about the tried and true ride from the parking lot above the restrooms at the top of the Dam up and over past the Visitor Center, to the Marina, maybe to the Saddle Dam and back via the Grand Canyon? Iím flexible. Good weather, no rain, cool temps and lots of dirt trails awaits. See you tomorrow night.

    For those that want to ride in the Downtown Oroville Light Parade, we are officially entered. The Parade is Saturday, December 12, 2009 and begins at 6 pm. We should sign in on the levy behind Dirks Transmission around 5:30. We will move down the levy and then down beside the Municipal on Huntoon. See below for the parade route. It will be a relatively short route, they will allow the kids to go first, and I just hope they donít put us behind a bunch of horses, Jim hates brown tires.

    Walgreens has battery lights for $3.99, they have white lights or green and red lights. They run on 2 AA batteries. Rite Aid has battery lights at $1.49 that are multicolor and require 2 ďCĒ batteries.

    Event Name: LIGHT PARADE in Downtown Oroville

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

    I am up for a Thursday ride at 6 pm tomorrow. How about the tried and true ride from the parking lot above the restrooms at the top of the Dam up and over past the Visitor Center, to the Marina, maybe to the Saddle Dam and back via the Grand Canyon? Iím flexible. Good weather, no rain, cool temps and lots of dirt trails awaits. See you tomorrow night.

    For those that want to ride in the Downtown Oroville Light Parade, we are officially entered. The Parade is Saturday, December 12, 2009 and begins at 6 pm. We should sign in on the levy behind Dirks Transmission around 5:30. We will move down the levy and then down beside the Municipal on Huntoon. See below for the parade route. It will be a relatively short route, they will allow the kids to go first, and I just hope they donít put us behind a bunch of horses, Jim hates brown tires.

    Walgreens has battery lights for $3.99, they have white lights or green and red lights. They run on 2 AA batteries. Rite Aid has battery lights at $1.49 that are multicolor and require 2 ďCĒ batteries.

    Event Name: LIGHT PARADE in Downtown Oroville

    Description:
    "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" at the annual parade of lights on the streets in Downtown Oroville. Bring your family and friends to this great family event. Come early to enjoy dinner and shopping before the parade begins.

    Location: Downtown Oroville, Oroville, CA 95965

    Tomorrow night letís meet at the parking above the restrooms at the top of the Dam at 6 pm. There is no rain forecast but will still be cold.

    How about the Saturday night Light Parade? There is rain forecast, slightly warmer temperatures. I plan to don my rain gear and participate. I have not got lights attached to my bike yet but plan to do it Saturday during the day. If anyone wants to come over and get their bike ready I can move that cars out of the garage bring your bike and we can put the lights on. If itís cold I have a heater. I am hard to find here in Oroville just off Acacia Avenue but call and I will tell you where to go.

    What's with all the rain I'm going to do some hard thinking about the parade tonight. I just don't what to freeze, have my wife freeze and yell at me all night, I would reather take a ride in the mud get all wet and freeze then to ride in the parade we'll just have to wait and see about the weather. Mad Dog I'll give you $10 next time we ride.

    Monday Night Ride..................

    We will meet at the cul-de-sac Monday night for our 6 pm ride. Jim said that we might be able to park inside the parking area because last time he was there the pay station was all covered up.

    At any rate we will leave from the cul-de-sac area at around 6. The plan is to ride around towards Potters Ravine then up Killer Hill and then on up to the top of Gobblers Knob. There will be no moon and the view could be spectacular.

    From there we will ride down, make a left and go down Dead Cow and back.

    No rain forecast for Monday night, lows in the 40ís so it should be a tropical wonderland bring your Hawaiian shirts.

    See yíall Monday.

    Mo Info!
    Awesome time in the Parade, all of the bikes were pretty cool, Jimís tandem with Joyce on it and with all of those lights it looked like a stretched limo. Good luck was with us as we missed all of the heavy rain and it appears all went well.

    The ride for tomorrow is still on, there is some rain forecast for Monday night but it is scheduled for some time after 9 pm so we should be ok. See you at the cul-de sac.

    MONDAY NIGHT RIDE! 12-21-09................................

    I say "Sorry to Toby and Biking Buddy Drew, I changed the ride last Thursday last moment notice."
    This Monday Saddle Dam out to The Carals we'll take the ride backwards like we did one other time. Check out the Christmas lights on the ridge. We may see how everyone feels about taking the long loop back, that means Down Horse Shoe Hill. It's just a thought. Get those lights charged up and "Let's Ride On".
    Biking Buddy mtb57jim


    Charge those lights, there may be a chance of rair so be sure to bring your umbrella, see you at the Saddle Dam at 6.

    ... and if we just ... Saturday Ride?

    Anyone interested in a Saturday ride, maybe do the North Fork? Saturday Dec 26 weather forecast now is for 53 degrees and a 50% of showers, did not say rain so that leads me to bekieve something passing through with a 50% chance that it will not rain.

    Let me know if anyone is interested and we can set a time and meeting place. Right now I hear the parking is free at the launch ramp.

    Letís meet at the cul-de-sac Saturday at 2 PM to ride to the end of the North Fork Trail. We may be able to park for free inside the launch ramp area so check that area out. Last few times up there the Rangers covered up all of the self pay stations because the lake is so low.

    See you Saturday,

    I went up to the launch area today and verified there is no parking fee required. They have a sign up that statesĒNo fees are required due to low lake levelsĒ. So if you are riding up that way you can park for free.

    Saturday weather update states 53 degrees with a 40% of showers in the PM...............

    See you at 2

    Saturday North Fork

    Any ride is a good ride.

    We rode yesterday 3.5miles past the picnic table out on the new section of trail and the rutts and mud got so bad and deep that we did not make it to the end. State Parks has made great progress on this trail. It appears that they are done for the winter, we saw tracks where they took thrie equipment out.

    See you soon.

    Still no information confirmed on when and where. I just checked weather forecast and it is calling for rain tomorrow (Friday) but not for Saturday. I do not have any additional info, I checked MTBR and LOBO and there appears to be conflicting information. I plan to check my mail first thing in the morning, I believe any ride, tomorrow or Saturday will not start too early

    ... and if we just ... Saturday Ride

    Here is the latest information I can ascertain.

    Saturday ride at 9 am. Meet at the parking area just above the restrooms at the top of the Dam.

    I believe Jim and Steve are out riding now so I am waiting for a phone call for more info.

    I suspect the Saturday ride will be a long and challenging one based on some of the suggested destinations I have heard. But as always any ride is a good ride!
    Unfortunately I will not be able to make the Saturday ride because my daughter and grand kids arrived here last night so I will see you all on the next ride. I will be thinking about you all as me and the 8 and 5 year old are making brownies and drinking hot chocolate!

    As soon as I get mo info I will pass it on.

    Yes,We Steve and I did take a ride 10:30 and also found out that there was about 10 other ride's out doing the same thing. It rained a bit but all and all it was good. We went up to the Visitor Center to the Grand Canyon and around the corral's found a new but it will be fun trying to ride trail. Did not get to ride with the other ride's just saw that their trucks or cars were there so they had to be out there.

    ... and if we just ... Monday Ride

    The ride for Monday Meet at the parking lot across from Green Line we will be go up Sycamore Hill hard ride for some, but it's a Monday ride and "We Ride With Who We Go With" does that make sense.
    Meet at 6:00 see you there.
