I have been thinking about trying to get a late summer group ride together. Not sure where or when. Is there any interest? Toss your thoughts and ideas in the hat and let's see if it is possible.
Are there any other group rides coming up in your area?
Ride the Big Sur Coastline.
50/50,mix of dirt and back road blacktop figure 8 or simple loop from hwy20 above Nevada City through North Bloomfield hydraulic gold mining district up to Granitevile, then down to Washington on the Yuba River, then climb back to 20. Then east to Bowman Lake Road, back to Graniteville and then back to starting point. All intermediate riding but just south of 20 is Chalk Bluff with an alleged 100+ miles of single track trails.

Sierra Buttes and the Gold Lake District has awesome scenery with only moderately difficult roads. Located up HWY89 beyond Downieville and just north of Babbit and Sierra City.
The road from Sierra City climbing up to fire lookout tower is a steep multi-switchbacked road that will make you feel you have earned the views from atop the most spectacular fire lookout tower imaginable. sierra-city-ge.jpgSierra-Buttes-Fire-Outlook-38.jpg
From the lookout tower the views of Gold Lake Basin are very nice, and ridge line roads extend to the north then descend to several of the many lakes visible from up high.SierraButtesNorth.jpgimages-4.jpegimages-2.jpeg
I would love to get in a late summer ride. Maybe all camp Friday nite, long ride Saturday and head back home sunday whenever.

Wow, that's a pretty impressive fire tower!
That is some amazing terrain! Would make a epic TW adventure for sure.
I'm interested! I would also put in a suggestion of the Mendocino / Lake county area, I don't have any routes in mind, and I would be sure to get us all lost... Jomama knows a few great roads & trails that would fit all skill levels. (hint hint) m.
