    Me and a friend of my wife's are working it out, but I'm thinking we'll shoot for getting to the school between 10:30 and 11:00 and ride from there.........I'll make it a set time if anyone else wants to meet us........

Also, since I use my bicycles for transportation and utility, the last thing I need is to be off the bike with a broken collarbone or other injury.

    Why am I talking like this when I'm a mountain biker, you ask? Because I don't take too many chances on mtb rides either.
    I agree, there's a line........I don't wanna cross........

    I'll be there at 10:30 at the school. Keep in mid there is a church that uses the school on Sun A.M. so the parking lot maybe packed.

    St Marinellos built themselves a church home up the road on Folsom Auburn Rd. The parking lot might br crowded with lacrosse or soccer players, but its nothing like what it used to be

    TBF is doing a triathalon at GB. There will be trail runners on the trails and fire road south of the beach. Make sure to give them room.

    Oh that's right about the new church. I live down the street from the owner of TBF so yes they get plenty of room and encouragement from me when I'm out there as well. I pick all the trails I can to keep off the race course but at times you can't.

    Sorry to hijack the thread - but I am just planning a trip to the US (from the UK) and we are looking for new areas to ride in North California, I think we drove through Auburn last year on the way to Downieville? Is there much riding around the Auburn area that is worth stopping for? Cheers. Leon.

    Yes, but when would you arrive? It gets pretty hot in the summer. Here are some photos. Lots of photos, maps, GPS tracks here.

    There are plenty of trails in and around the Auburn area. September can be hot as well, last year was unseasonably cool. Stagecoach, connector, Foresthill Divide trail, back on connector to culvert to confluence for an Auburn "in-town ride." If you want other rides near Auburn that are others that worth hitting.

    We are actually in the minority of mtb riders.
    Its actually rather inspiring that there are so many more mtb riders running around than just the few that show up here on mtbr

    Tahoe?

    Skip Auburn. Tahoe is not much more than an hour away and it is by far the best place to ride in northern California in September.

    September, Tahoe is much more comfortable because of the heat. If you want to ride Auburn (many great trails), do it early and plan on being done riding before 10am; past 10am the temperature really starts to climb.

    Hey Dexter do you happen to have a Garmin file for this ride? Don't ask me how but I tried to do it on sat morning and somehow I ended up at Biels Point lmao ... I eventually found it though but so many little trails going left and right
