Trail work in King Range

Looking for a new place to ride? Looking for a new place to ride nobody is riding yet? Come out and help us build some new single track in King Range National Conservation Area tentatively known as “Fools Paradise´┐Ż. This will be a great weekend getaway for Bay Area residents who want to get away from the crowded Sierra and local trails.There is great camping available, the scenery is magnificent and the trails are going to be world class. The BLM office in charge of the project is estimating the initial loop will be completed within a year or so. They have scheduled CCC www.ccc.ca.gov and www.ccc.ca.gov to be out there this summer. These groups will be working on the harder to access Paradise Ridge. We are working across the valley just off King Peak Road with easy access and the campground just up the road.

We have scheduled our next work, camp, and ride weekend for June 24th and 25th. BLM is letting trail workers camp for free and are even feeding us dinner on Saturday night. They BBQed up a bunch of burgers (veggie too) at our last trail work day and will be doing it again. Somebody brought a bunch of north coast micro brews to share and there will be some this time too.

If you wish to join us, directions and contact information can be located at www.bigfootbicycle.org or, you may contact me directly at TwoWheelinTim at earthlink dot net or (707) 445-1738. A head count helps with food and beverage logistics so an affirmative response would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.
