    Norcal TW group ride #5- the "Red Bluff Gives You Wings" ride

    Ok, initial planning stages for the next ride:
    Start location: Red Bluff, California Intersection of Hwy 36/99 at the start of Hogsback Rd (Belle Mill Rd)
    End location: Red Bluff, California
    Ride will start on Hogback Rd (approx. 22mi), becomes dirt head out and eventually join Peligreen Jeep Trail loop (36 miles) and return via Hogsback Rd (22mi) or something similar in mileage.
    At least one water crossing, possibly more
    Decisions:
    • Does this become a camp and ride, i.e. camp the night before ride to get an early start or a camp after the ride or do the normal out and back in a day? (note: Red Bluff is roughly same distance/time as driving to Lakeport for those Bay Area folks)
    • Timing, pretty hot right now may need to wait until early October (note last week of October is hunting season)


    More info coming soon:
    Any thoughts from potential riders?

    I'm in. Any date, except July 15, any option. On a map this may look further than Lakeport, but Josh is right. Easy freeway drive to Redbluff. Have you riden this before Josh?

    @ Joemama -haven't ridden those trails specifically, but they are covered in an off road trails book I have with maps and gps way points. If you go to google maps, type in Hogsback Rd, Red Bluff and follow that road out you'll see where it intersects with a number of forest service roads.
    @ evan, yes that sounds like a great idea Fri-Sun but for me it's pretty hard to clear more than 1 night away from home with my little gremlin, errrr I mean daughter.

    October is good for me, plenty of time for me to get my act together. September is Boonville fair time.

    Camping sounds good, & that area is nice in the fall. m.

    And I thought Santa Margarita was hot -- I just checked weather dot com and Red Bluff is much hotter. I can't commit right now for Oct. but I for sure will try to make it. Camping is good for me too. Tony

    Yep, that is why we need to wait until late September or October, squeak in as the temps begin to come down and before the winter closures.

    Well now you folks will be in my neighborhood. Maybe I can set-up a 'toll booth'. Perhaps with the money I make I can afford to have an updated dual front manufactured.

    Kidding aside, the Hogs Back area is one hot little piece of heaven this time of year. I have ridden it twice, once on the TW and many years earlier on my mt. bike. September would be great. Here are a few pictures. Gerry







    With tongue firmly pressed against cheek, I refer to this as the Hogs Back hiway. Might I say, 'aggressively textured'. As this is the section that cuts off from Paynes Creek down to hwy 99 it will be avoided (I think).
