California Bit o Downieville pucker factor

Recommended Posts

I like everything about that video!  :thumbsup:

 

The speed.  The commentary.  All the Orange.  The Club. The gloves.  The Maps. The booths. The people.  The faces. The GPS. The trails. :goofy:

 

I even like the car in your Avatar.

 

Oh, I'm whipped.  I wanna ride with you! :ride:  :lol: My only concern is the plate.  100 miles is huge but I didn't see any roads.

 

Now I've got to do some homework, I WILL be on that ride next year. :foul:

 

http://www.woodsriders.org/  Oh the INTERNET is a beautiful thing. Dirty,  you get front page space.  Do I have to become a member to do this ride? I live by Groucho Marx's comment about clubs.

 

I'm on it! http://www.woodsriders.org/content.aspx?page_id=87&club_id=462551&item_id=275427 and the answer is NO! I can't do this.  The video provides a very good idea of how you went and where you were but how about a GPS track?  Here is a great resource http://www.gpsxchange.com/ Is it already on there?  The Downieville Duel Sport posted?  The post is March 15th by robnmp.  I've been eyeballing that loop on the map.  That's a whole day's ride! Nice!

 

I've got the map, I can pencil it out. ;) But you didn't stay on the highlighted map.  That's how to post a video! :crazy:

 

 

 

P.S. I don't have a plate & 4 strokes, with the magic button, when I get old.  :p

 

 

Thank you.

At 3:27 you could have stayed on the trail.  But nope you go down the bank, on a section of trail that was rerouted several years ago.

I got it all mapped out. I was eyeing that loop before but didn't know.  :thinking: Your video confirmed it.  I'm gonna try 1 more ride before the snow comes. But there's no signs!  I'm gonna get lost! :lol:

 

Thanks Again!

Hi Scott, The Dual Sport is open to all riders. That is our annual club fundraiser event. Our next Dual Sport event will be held the last weekend of September, 2014. Most of our other rides throughout the rest of the year are indeed club rides and would require being a member or being the guest of a member to participate in the rides. Annual membership dues are $30.00 for the first year and following years can be reduced to $20.00 in exchange for a minimum of 8 hours of work on our local trails the area. We are in charge of maintaining the trails we ride so the forest service does not close them down due to erosion and lack of maintenance.

 

Thank you for your interest in the Woodsriders.

I was like " why does He need a locator "  until i got to 11 = Min LOL

 

Geeez, the first bit of single track was waaay out of my ability, 11min was tougher and 13min I would have trouble hiking on, especially that look back shot!
