About This Club

We'll ride anywhere as long as there's a chance to find something interesting in the end....

  1. What's new in this club
  2. If anybody rides out here in Spanish springs and looking for another rider let me know. thanks
  3. yes we went. 1 guy new it like the back of his hands and took us through a bunch of single track. 3/4 of it was single track. We climbed up to the Top of sister mountain. Once on top, we saw a trail down the back side. That may have been the most challenging thing I've done in the past 10 years. It look like only 2 or 3 bikes had gone down this trail. it was a side hill, in shale, almost straight down. That trail dropped about 1,600 ft in about 1,200 ft. into a single track in the woods. Its a down only trail. EPIC 73 mile loop in about 5 hrs I'd do it again, but I may have to wait a while
  4. derp, seems I never get emails for posts here.. guess you've already gone before the cold and snow hit.
  5. If you're not sure of a route.. I went up there a few months back.. route I took was through some decent waterfalls... lots of dry creek bed. could post up GPX if that's helpful. Cool place
  6. A couple of "non Thumper talk" friends are riding on Thursday, starting somewhere around Lake Topaz and going up to 11,650ft Mt Patterson. Details are still in flux, but I thought I throw it out there and see if anyone else wanted to go.
  7. Yeah it's OK right now but super dusty. Plan to some out after a good rain fall
  8. Forest single track but way less rocks than Stoney
  9. I appreciate the invite. I'll tag along on the next ride there. What type of riding is available there ?
  10. A few of us are writing Middlecreek if you’d like to tagalong on Sunday
  11. I might, its almost 3 hrs away, so its a bit of a haul. especially since I'm in the middle of some really cool stuff that I could just ride my bike to.
  12. @SmokeX Im booked this weekend 31st, for GT and Moon Rocks nov7 next weekend. the next weekend im open. Come out to GT on the 31st! it should be a solid day of riding. likely to be 7-12 riders.
  13. Ok, I'm trying to get one of the other guys that knew the area, to go also. or we could just go and wing it. What day is good for you ? I can go just about anytime
  14. I need to ride. I could go back over to Georgetown, and Ride with BigBob, but I would think I could get a ride going on the eastern side of the Sierra's. I have some virgin single track that a friend has shown me, but I hate to go back and do it alone. He's older and doesn't go out as much, so I need a riding partner.
  15. something else came up... seems to happen a lot.. I think I'm not good at planning things...
  16. Cross post from NorCal Trail Riders Hey NV Guys, Wanted to share this clean up day if you haven't heard of it yet. let met know if you are interested and if you would like join our group as well. We actively post rides in he Sacramento to Truckee area and you are more than welcome to join!
  17. Meet here on Pinenut Road: https://goo.gl/maps/NaefjQqtXCRcsJdu8 I think there's enough parking there. A bit further down the road is Pinyon Trailhead, but that looks more like hiking. I have a roughly 30 mile route planned out. Lots of mines in the area. Don't be surprised if the riding is easy, and lots of stopping and poking around old mining dumps. and don't forget the time change.
  18. I'm afraid your correct about a ride this year. I want to ride, but at what risk to my lungs. Once we get some rain on the fires it should be better up here. I'll stayed tuned for a group outing
  19. Dang smoke makes planning rides rather difficult. Been nice out here that last several days, this morning took a ride up Peavine and then the smoke moved in. This pic is from the NW hills of Reno looking into town.. After maybe 30 minutes of riding, my throat was already getting raw.
  20. some info on possible route up... https://www.utvguide.net/ride-spot-mt-patterson-california/ That's aimed at UTVs, we might be able to find something a bit more interesting.
  21. Bodie is easy to get to, I'd think a D/S ride to Mt Patterson should be easy to figure out. Coming out of Topaz seems likely to mean 100 miles of pavement/fairly nice dirt roads... albeit the last time I was at Bodie the washboard was just horrid! I'll see if I can find good into of routes up to Patterson, probably nice and cool.. if maybe a bit sun-burney.
