    Smile Weekly Chico Rides

    The Oroville thread seems to work pretty well to get a group ride together so I thought I would start one for Chico.

    Park was closed today, the outlook for tomarrow and thursday is unknown until tomarrow morning.

    If it opens up tomarrow then here is what I have planned.

    Wednesday lunch Ride. Depart Parking area on East side of 5 mile Bridge 11:45am
    We usually make a quick run up middle trail to Bear hole then back down lower trail.

    Thursday North Rim. Depart 1 mile (across from caper acres/softballl field) 5:15pm
    Usually about 1 Hour 40 minutes round trip. Can possibly leave earlier if everyone can make it, and its decided by wednesday afternoon.

    Sounds good. Looks like today will be a solo ride. Travis wont have his fork back till tonite or tomarrow.

    Update: finally got aholf of Park division, said ranger was going to try to open trails up this afternoon. So the lunch ride will be out. I may try to go at 4:00 or so, if work hasnt got me tied down.

    The seals were leaking a bit, not unrideable, but noticeable sepage.

    Here is what he got when he called around. Its a Fox F100 RL fork, so 32mm Parts

    Sports LTD: *Neither in Stock, No price given

    North Rim: $30 Seals, $30 Wipers, $50 labor Total $110 *Neither not in stock, may order some soon

    Cyclesport: $13 Seals & $13 Wipers, $30 Labor Total $50 *Wipers not in Stock

    Pullins: $15 Seals, $25 labor Total $40 *Both in Stock, said wipers not usually necessary, but will inspect.

    Cyclesport said the shock tech only works a couple days a week, so it could be 4-5 days to get it completed.

    Dropped off fork to Pullins Monday. Shock tech not in, would hopefully do it today. Tech was not in as of 10:30 am today to get an ETA.

    we shuttled south rim yesterday and the trails were open ... maybe they forgot to change the signs?

    props to the other kids in the black subaru with the black rims that also passed that slow ass vette on the way up if you guys are on the board. We were the crew with the black ranger drinking tall boys at green gate.

    Ill put some good pics into this thread when i get home from school ... if anyone sees a kid on a bmx holding onto a trek fuel going thru lower bidwell its me ... supposed to get it back from north rim today. BB install (its a dual cup and my dumbass tried to put it in and screwed one of the sides in too far, then put everything togther and then couldnt get the crank back off to center it) ... hes also fixing my rear brake cause the pull sucks .... and my front fork may need to be rebuit.

    At least the singlespeed and faith are still in good shape

    I dont think I have ever seen the South Rim sign say anything but open. I dont know if they just dont care if people ride it when its wet or they just dont go change it. I know that side of the mountain takes the water alot better.

    Lets see some of those DH pics

    Im glad I went later. Instead of seeing you shirtless, I got to enjoy a fully nekid Hot chick at Horseshoe Lake. Someone must have done alot of talking to get that to happen. There was 2 guys making a nude painting or something of this girl right at the maidu/middle intersection.

    more than likely not for me, but when you taking off, and where you heading?

    Oh yeah, B tail is fully engulfed in PO now. I bought the big jug of technu last night, and still ended up with a few spots.

    Top of north Rim @ B Trail


    No Mud!! Nice change
