    New Weekly Chico Rides?

    Is anybody else having trouble pulling up the weekly chico thread? Anyway, here are some cool shots from my ride tonight. The first is my new bike and a cool sunset. The second is Tim Olson trudging up frisbee golf on his Session 10.

    Good idea. I haven't been able to pull the forum up in awhile.
    Looked like a great evening to be out.

    I was lost for a bit thanks for starting the new forum. That other must have shut down. Come on over Thursday 5:00 at the Dam just above the bathrooms. We had a great ride last Tuesday. New guy name Phil likes to go Fast lot's of fun trying to keep up. Go ahead that the challenge. See you there?

    It was actually Tuesday night. The only way I can keep Tim in sight is if he rides his downhill bike. He was actually pushing his bike just before that picture was taken. I couldn't get my camera out fast enough.

    I was near the bottom of B trail and Tim passed me going up. I stopped to chat to someone for a minute on middle and Tim was ahead of me. Tim went up B-trail and down Old Live Oak just a minute or two slower than it took me to finish B and middle. He was on his Remedy...freaking insane.

    Apparently the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree. The first pic is 10 year old Eli Olson. The second is his dad Tim. I get stuck taking all the pictures.

    These are some random pics from the park over the last couple of years. That's not me on the 36er. I just think it's funny.

    Thanks

    I didn't realize it was supposed to rain until I realized why you said that conditionally. Oh well, *fingers crossed*

    A couple pictures from tonight, they didn't come out very well. Might have to invest in a better camera.

    Only if you are not there (and we hit up the other side)...not enough room in the park for the both of us! Let me know when and I will be there, with a sh!t load of little tires to boot.

    RE: Poison Oak...

    Has anyone tackled the massive bush of P.O. on Lower? It's at the top of a small climb (if I'm not mistaken - rocky), left-hand side, heading west, shortly after Middle trail JCT.?
    It's massive and really invading the left side of the trail on a left turn. I know P.O. very well (unfortunately) and I always have to 'double-take' there because it resembles one of those big holly bushes from a ways off.

    I, too, am one of those who gets it badly, otherwise I'd be out there w/ my loppers.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    B trail is like one giant tunnel of Poison Oak. I'm sure I'm going to get it after my ride today. Also, I saw the biggest Rattlesnake I've ever seen in the park today. It was at least 3' long and fat as hell. I tried to take a picture but by the time I got my phone out it moved to the bushes. Summer is a comin'

    I'm headed to Lowe's tonight to buy some shears so I can help too. The section of North Rim continuing up to the lookout isn't even passable right now.

    Hi all. I ride in bidwell all the time, and just ran across this forum for the first time. Now that it's getting hot again, I try and jump in bear hole after I ride if I think I brushed any oak. Seems to help. Anyway, I'm looking to do a little camping/riding trip next week, and I have been hearing about a trail out in Paskenta to the west of town. Does anyone know anything about this trail? I can't find much on the internet.

    Thats the stuff of legend. Those who know about it tend not to give a good description of where it is. Kind of like the other paradise trails

    From my understanding there are some nice trails but they are illegal now, don't know if they're enforced. Big fires over in Paskenta this year too.

    as for the information, the area became wilderness sometime in 2007. Have been there twice (first time not knowing that its legality was questionable)

    second time rode the bottom section which is a rutted fire road, (because the top was snowed in)
    AZ has the best mountain bike gathering ever
