    Hey Tinercom,
    I don't think that any of this crew is into steroids. I did have four Pale Ales and four slices of Pizza last night = 7:51 on B Trail this morning ( good carbs )
    Hope to see you out there Tiner ...

    Just want to clarify, I was joking about steroids. One look at Lowell Moural would tell you there are no steroids involved. So Marty, the secret is to drink a bunch of Pale Ale the night before? I'm gonna try it.

    Sorry Tiner .. Little slow sometimes on the dry humor. Yea you know Lowell has a 7:20 but he will kill that soon. Don't know if he will have to wait for the Carbon Nomad to show up first but we know he will be in the 6's. Yea Pale Ale should do the trick... Ha Steroids I thought you were serious ....



    WE RIDE !!!!!!!!!

    Ok, Marty, I'm not gonna say my time, it was not even close to yours. It was light years from Nicks. I went over the bars once but all in all I put in a decent run for me. I lose tons of time on the brief uphill sections. I have tons of respect for anybody who can do it in under 8:00. We should ride sometime.

    A big THANKS to the trail gnomes who have done some nice trimming of the oak and various overgrowth.


    Upper Middle was especially nice this morning.

    You're welcome! I was up there last night for a night ride, and I'm sure my front wheel and shins contributed to the trimming. My buddies and I joked that we should strap a couple of weed eaters to our bikes the next time we go out. Upper part of South Rim is ridiculous!

    Anyone shuttle Guardians regularly? I could use a lift up there more often and I'd chip in for gas or I can drive (only a 2 seater though, better for the return trip)

    Very cool! Looks like you started the clip right after the two steep ravines after coming off B-trail? I want to see some footage from the big ravine right above Bear Hole.

    Yep. It was a mellow cruise... just up the road to B-trail/Middle intersection. There were several stops as I was messing with the cam, so I cut out that stuff and the uphill sections. Had to trim to under 10mins to make the youtube requirements.

    Just wanted to get something on tape for now. Hadn't seen anyone post vids of these sections yet, so I figured what the hell.

    Which "big ravine above Bear Hole"? North side or South?

    ah, i meant below bear hole. As you're going up it's a pretty technical section just past the power lines on middle trail. Going down I do all right, but going up I've still had trouble cleaning the whole thing. Actually heading out tonight around 7:30 with a buddy, probably hit middle trail and that "other" trail up by devil's kitchen.

    nickelbot...nice! (You guys suck for letting that jealousy be induced in me.)
    *Sadly, after riding there for 3 years all I'm thinking in the back of my head though is "tick? tick? tick? tick?" and not in the cool freewheel noise kind of way.
    I miss Bidwell...

    How bad are the goathead thorns anyhow? Trails are looking actually really nice despite the recent weather?

    A friend just moved up there and I'm cc'ing this thread to him. If anyone goes "Hey, I know Obi.. can you show me some trails" be nice to him.

    Obi..

    p.s. Melty, don't feel bad about the layoff, lots of us are there right now. Been back to school myself, earned another degree with the added funds to unenjoyment coming from a B.O.G. waiver and some grants. Give it a shot, free education is always good.

    ouch. That's what hydration packs are for... they're body armor for the self-respecting xc riders who never wear such a thing

    I did that once, when I first moved back to Chico and started riding again. It was one of the first times I ever rode while clipped in. On my way up Middle... got to the bottom of that toilet bowl... swung around right... and my front tire slammed into that little dip. I stalled, figured I was going over... so I clicked out (barely)... threw my bike as far left as I could... and then I slid down into the pit. My entire left side of my torso scaped along that cliff as I went in. That hurt. But I was more worried about the snakes that might be in there. So I got out, licked my wounds and finished the ride.

    since then I've learned to just keep pedaling when you're coming down and all the way through that spot. Stay focused on a spot about 20ft up the trail and keep pedaling no matter what.

    I used to call that spot 50/50. But now I'm pretty much 100% every time unless I have a mechanical.

    Yep, that's the one. Last time I got to the very last hard part and then stalled out. My buddy fell right at the bottom, he landed on the trail, and his bike went over the side down the hill. Better than the other way around! So far I've been able to keep it sunny side up on that section.

    No ticks so far, and I've been riding some pretty overgrown trails; upper middle, B-trail, upper annie bidwell/south rim. Always good to check yourself afterwards (or have a good friend do it ). As far as goatheads, they are not quite hard enough yet to make it through the tires. Another 1-2 weeks and they will be though, so break out the slime or whatever, or just be very careful to stay on the main part of the trail.

    I picked up my first goathead flat last Saturday. BUT, I was riding a bit trashed and may or may not have stayed on the trail at some points. I blame the chico brew fest...

    Nope, not at all. It actually looks very rideable until you get into that toilet bowl and have the hard right hand turn. Too hot coming down and you can't make the turn, too slow and you don't have enough momentum to get out. I used to ride with a buddy that could do that no problem each time...but he could also ride up tennis ball hill.

    from my first attempt - I ended up with a tennis ball sized lump on my knee - how fitting


    to top it off, as I cleaned out my wound at nude beach, I noticed something glaringly missing

    My family is having a reunion in Chico mid July. We'll be camping out at the Elks Lodge for a weekend and I want to take a few of the MTBers on the middle trail on that Saturday. Problem is most of them are flying in from out of state and can't bring their bikes. I can only bring two bikes with me. Is there a place in town that rents decent mt bikes?

    North Rim Adventure Sports usually has current year Trek and Fisher Demo bikes, you may want to call them soon to see what they have and reserve what you can.

    Beautiful afternoon for a ride, esp when it works out so I'm coming back through when the sun is lower and the lighting is more dramatic.

    Here's to summer riding and refreshing creek crossings

    Looks great boomn! I need to hit Guardians again, I've been sticking to the north side for the past few weeks except for one ride up and down Annie Bidwell/South Rim. I did some crazy forest rides up along deer creek this past weekend, and it was quite a difference between the rocky/dusty Upper Park trails.

    Ha ha. I linked my brother to this vid trying to convince him to do the ride with me during the family reunion I mentioned before. He doesn't tolerate poison oak at all. He said "Sure, I'm in...if you ride the wall." I told him I'd ride the wall if he'll wheely the wall. He said "Front wheel okay?"

    Not sure if you guys use MTBR, but...

    ... a big thanks to Josh (on the Blur?) and Antone (Intense?) Met you guys on Guardians today. Good riding with you for a while and I appreciate the hookup on the pump. Would've sucked walking home. I owe you a beer. If you do use this site, post before you ride and I'll try to get out with ya some time.




    PS - Yes. Guardians needs some work. Or maybe I was just close to the bonk zone.

    I haven't ridden Guardian's since the spring, but I did the North Rim/Middle Trail loop around noon today. HOLY hell that was hot! So what is messed up about Guardian's trail? It seemed pretty rough when I rode it, but no more than usual...is it getting trashed?

    Just felt like there were more blown corners than usual. But maybe it was my line choice that was bad. Or could have been that my front tire wasn't holding air by the mid-way point and I had to find out the hard way... then my pump took a crap... and my valve stem was jacked up...

    ... but other than that... had a great ride!

    That was me (on the tracer). No one should get stuck out there w/ a flat in the heat; it was the least we could do... cheers. Just put my C02 kit back into the cambleback.

    I'm going to hit Guardian's trail with a buddy tomorrow around 5:30-6:00pm. His GF is going to give us a shuttle to Green Gate and then we're going to take a quick trip down. Should be an interesting ride, and the first time I'll take the 29er HT down it. Anyone who wants to ride with us is welcome, neither of us are fast riders but we're not slow either.

    Hey, been going to CSUC for the last year..finally found the funds to buy a bike that will let me actually go trailing, so expect to see me out there I've just explored and the only real trail I found was North Rim.

    Welcome to Bidwell. Let us know if you find any other real trails out there.

    For trails in upper park check out this map: http://www.bcag.org/documents/transi...P_back_web.pdf

    Middle Trail all the way to where it hits the park road is a pretty good "tour of rock types" for Bidwell Park. You've got powdered dust, sand, sandstone, some weird chalky stuff, baby heads, tennis balls, boulders, lava cap, and some smooth hardpack. If you turn around at the top and come down Middle Trail it's a pretty fun ride. After riding Middle Trail almost to the end, you can jump onto Lower Trail, which has some pretty fun smooth singletrack and a few good technical spots. North Rim is a great trail after you get past the power lines, but below that I don't care for it...just a big rocky road, but it's a good workout.

    On the south side, definitely ride up and down Annie Bidwell (formerly known as South Rim). Guardian's trail is also a great ride, and is fun to shuttle if you don't care for punishing rocky climbs uphill. If you drive up Highway 32, on the right side of the highway about 10 miles up is "Ten Mile House Road". On the left side is a parking area and what's known as "Green Gate". You can ride the dirt road a short ways down to Guardian's trail, or go almost to the bottom and catch Annie Bidwell trail to ride back down. Guardian's is probably the most difficult trail in the park, but once you learn a few of the hard sections it really is a blast.

    I'm going to ride it tonight actually, getting a ride up there and will be at Green Gate around 6:15-6:30pm. I'll be there with 1-2 others if anyone wants to join. Cheers!

    Nice, thanks. I'm completely new to mountain biking. Usually jacked my mom's road bike for trips through the Buttes when I went home, but after finding out about all the trails here in Chico I want to start doing that WAY more.

    Forget what I said about Guardian's previously. It's fine. It could use some love, but nothing major. I was just having a bad day last time I guess. That log across the trail at about midway section is not a great feature. Needs to be built up or removed.

    Went through Canyon Oaks-->Hike-a-bike'd it up to frisbee-->rode along 32 up to green gate-->Guardian's. Pretty stupid considering the heat @ 5pm... I suffered a bit. But once I was up top there was nothing else to do but complete the loop.

    Anyone got details on The Bump this year?

    So are there any group rides scheduled, or did that fall apart? I'd be up for getting together once during the week in the evening and once in the morning on the weekends. Anybody interested?

    Personally, I'd take the Nomad, but the Blur would do just fine too.

    my self? or the nut-jobs?
    I like a big cushy bike - I'll suffer on the ups for the bombin DH

    Nut-jobs? Well, if you know upper-park - it's buuuumpy. It beats ya to hell - especially at speed.
    I know, I've ridden a few times with my rigid SS.

    (people call me a nut-job either way though )

    When I started riding in the late 80's, all we had were fully rigid bikes. Now I'm on a 6" Commencal and I wonder how the hell we rode the park then. As far as the fully rigid SS goes, my friend Tim did a B trail time in the mid 7's on a fully rigid SS.
