    NORCAL: River Riding

    Chris, Keith and I hammered out a semi-epic on a lesser known section of the South Yuba Trail, found some rocks to play on and gawked at the river a lot. The trail is maintained by Bicyclists of Nevada County - http://www.bonc.org

    Very nice, how warm is the water?
    Your bike can take you anywhere, anytime, over any terrain but, you have to force it to GK 2004. BB1, who started it?

    Cold enough to kill you. I'm serious. Every year, 3-4 people die on this river because they try to swim in it before it warms up. It is largely snow melt.

    Awesome ride

    This really was a superb ride. It has a ton of very steep, but short climbs in it (think granny gear, out of the saddle, suffering The technical aspects of the South Yuba trail are awesome though (the exposure exaggerates it). Very scenic, perfect weather, just a great day.

    in the summer you can swim in the river, it's a death trap now though.

    Good job! Great pictures!

    John, nice job with the pics! Bummer I couldn't make this ride. I don't think my legs could have taken the climbing after Saturday anyways. Hopefully we can get up there again soon!

    It's a good singlespeed ride too. Tree still down just before RM switchbacks intersection? Poison oak leafing out yet? Dogwoods in bloom between RM switchbacks and Purdon?
    Take a look at and consider "liking" my Vegan Athlete Facebook page.

    A few smaller trees down that could easily be taken out with a handsaw. PO is EVERYWHERE and leafing big time. Didn't notice any dogwoods.

    The big up and over log obstacle at the top of Round Mountain Trail needs a little work. Want to do a ride/maintenance trek out there?

    LOL! We started at Edwards > Purdon > up the road > Round Mountain > back to Edwards. I like this route because you start and finish on my favorite local trail.
