    It/s probbaly some FOOLS making the trails more "enduro friendly" because they CANT HANDLE the technicality of the original lines. COMPLETE B.S.!!!!
    Either that OR the local deers' hooves have evolved to contain MAXXIS High Roller tread patterns.
    Simmer down... If the trail becomes too extreme, access to it will get axed... Or paved... It's a trail for everybody, keep that in mind.

    Moving on.

    Mountain Lion sighting in the park last week:

    Mountain Lion reportedly kills dog over weekend, owner says pet saved her life - Action News Now

    Does that change anybody opinions on riding some of these areas alone?

    I was there riding with a big group on Saturday. I love riding here in Chico that's why I never come back to visit without my bike. These trails have been here for a long time and they will be here for many more years to come. We all just need to take care of them the best way possible and always remember to be curtious to all other trail users.

    In regards to the mountain lion, man i was really bummed to hear about that girl's dog, I saw the news after I got back from our ride. At least she was safe, just shows how much dogs love us and will do anything for us. Kind of a trip when you hear about something like that happening on a place you're so familiar with. Just have to remember that mountain lions are always around us when we're out there, we are in their territory. They are mostly shy and stay away from us but once in a while things go wrong. I never ride solo at night, and in the day, well hey I just take my chances. You can't let things like this take you away from what you love most. Just always be aware of your surroundings and think about scenarios and what you would do in them. We have to go through wilderness first aid trainings for work and some of the scenarios that they use sometimes seem out of this world but they do happen, we just think it will never happen to us. Be prepared!!! Anyways...Happy Trails everyone! See you again soon Chico!

    When people start bringing hammers or sledge hammers up to the trail to break rocks that are deemed "in the way" of the fastest line, THAT is crossing the line.
    I had no camera with me today but saw numerous spots on Guardian trail where some assssholes chiseled at some rocks. THAT IS COMPLETE BULLLSHITT!!!!
    A lot of people know who these chumps that are doing this are...
    If you ride with these punkasss kids let them know people are watching.
    They best stop while they are ahead...

    This is exactly why I have been posting, can you seriously not see it?
    It is because a few TARDS feel it is OK to screw with the trails that will eventually give a bad label to the entire MTB community.
    Long story short, so as to not get your panties up in a bunch again....if you know of, see or ride with the fools, let it be known to them that this behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated to the rest of the MTBers here locally!
    Stay apathetic and tolerant, my friend!

    I would venture to say that you do not speak for the "entire MTB community". Just saying. I have no idea what is that got you so AGITATED, but those are just rocks in dirt. So often people whine when some bit of a trail is reworked to be exactly as it was just a few years ago..

    One step forward, two steps back?

    Anyone know who the genius was who screwed with South Rim trail?
    That hack job of trying to make drainage routes has already started causing erosion of the trail.

    Every time I see this thread get bumped I get excited to see some pics of back home or some good news but instead its always something negative here. Post some nice pics of your rides or something! Remind us of how beautiful Bidwell is, so there are issues, big deal there are issues everywhere on every trail at some point or another. Horses, hikers, jerks on bikes, trail erosion, too much trail work, too little trail work, ticks, poison oak you name it! Is a little messed up water bar really worth ruining the ride? Or make you post negative stuff on mtbr? I'm starting to see our locals here in the bay area chime in on things, gotta show them that Chico is a great mountain bike location, not just riders who get worked up over every rock moved....Rant over.....Go ride a bike!

    You are trivializing it. You don't know the situation.

    Seriously? Or this that a joke because he hit two parked cars.

    On that note, I'm happy to report that I recovered my Kona Satori 29er stolen Superbowl Sunday. Posted a Craigslist ad reward, got a tip, stalked three locations over four days and grabbed him solo from Vagabond hotel. Although I have the thief's confession on an audio file and witnessed him with possession of stolen property....his probation officer will not return my call. I'm declaring war against the transients in this town.

    just a joke...sorry. i know it was not too funny.

    you are one of the very few who lucked out on getting stolen bike back.
    that's some serious dedication on your part. some real P.I. shitz!

    on another note, its prime time to do some trail maint'nence. seen sum reel chewed up BS going on up in upper Bidwell. must be all dem damn rookies from the high skoolz and chico state.

    i always loooove the rain. Especially cuz its prime time for upper park users to make single track into double double track, by walking/riding around majorly wet/muddy spots..................who here thinks the park should be closed to all users when muddy conditions exist????
    anyone have some experience confronting bikers riding closed park trails ?? a few four lettah wordz would be in order i s'pose.

    I'm VERY lucky someone responded to my add and pointed me in the right direction. I cannot tell you how pissed off I am at Butte Country Probation. I had their guy with audio confession, in possession of stolen property and Officer Duenas didn't return my phone call. The cops in this town are a JOKE. I was also informed by a bike shop about their auction and how they make money off stolen bikes.

    Regarding Bidwell, I still consider myself a rookie. South rim, Guardians and B trail....incredible challenge and tons of fun. I'm just going to hit the technical sections over and over until I get it right.

    With the 70-degree temps in the forecast, the trails should be really good soon.

    Our in-house videographer just finished the Bidwell Bump race video. Here it is if you want to check it out: http://youtu.be/i_8thowLT-0

    I rode this weekend too, on Sunday. Middle - B - North Rim - Live Oak - Upper - South Rim - Guardians - Secret - Disc Golf - Humboldt - Pine - Guardians - Bloody Pin - South Rim. Made it home after 4 1/2 hours covered in mud, tired, and happy.
    Take a look at and consider "liking" my Vegan Athlete Facebook page.

    New Weekly Chico Rides?

    Hi ! I am planning an MTB visit. Can you recommend me any place to stay to maximize riding hours and the best rocky routes in Bidwell? Can be motel or campground, does not matter that much...
