    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" my Vegan Athlete Facebook page.

    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

    Great bring your night lights it's very dark out on the trails. We had a 16mile ride last Monday a bit longer then normal most of the time it's a 10 or so. I/ll be watching the site.

    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,

    Mike...................

    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.

    Rode North Fork this morning. State Parks has been out there extending the trail. They made great progress probably punched through another quarter mile or so. Ok ride right now but when it rains it will be mondo mud.
