    Mendocino Vaca rental & ride

    Visiting Mendocino, CA in early June. Can anyone recommend a shop to rent bikes from and some good trails to ride? I saw Bike Magazine had a thing about Jackson Demonstration Forest. Is there good beginner/intermediate biking there that my wife might be able to enjoy? (she likes less technical, more flowy stuff).

    Conditions in early June will be perfect! Catch-A-Canoe (707 937-0273) at Stanford INN in Mendocino rents Cannondale bikes. They have a number of hardtails plus, two full suspension bikes, a medium and a large.

    We have 120 miles of great trails here where even beginners can have fun. Big River Road will take you to the Woodlands and back for a 20 mile excursion. For single track trails in the Jackson (JDSF), buy a copy of "Mountain Biking the Mendocino Coast and Beyond". PM me for details.

    Unfortunately, none of the trails are signed except in the Mendocino Woodlands State Park, so having a good guide book and map are essential. GPS devices are spotty due to tree density in the JDSF and State Parks. Trailforks.com has a great app., but is subject to signal interruptions. Some GPS devices can lose signals up to 20%.

    Hope this is helpful.
