This is a big crew, we'll need at least three groups with the tracks.

Plan is to get as far as Burney, CA, on Wednesday. That's just north of Lassen NP. Head up through Napa, past Clearlake, east towards Chico, then into the mountains.
There is hotel and camping options in Burney.

Second day we'd head into OR, and hopefully find some good dirt roads to ride on our way to Bend.

Return trip is open, I'll probably leave in time to get to Yreaka, then finish the trip on Monday.

If you're interested, let me know, and I'll put a mailing list together.

Cheers,

Luca

Put me on the list.

Probably not.
Man, I coulda used a winch yesterday, pre-riding the Southern end of our Cascades Route.
I was riding on a trail of what was left over from a 150+yo wagon road ....a section that I WON'T lead any of you on....

It took me 3+ hours to get outta what took me 20 minutes to get into.
Dog, I love that EXP autoclutch; but I'm betting my hot clutch plates hate me now....

REPAIRED???????
Whadja do now, Ernie...???




....and the only reason I would be skeptical about letting a lowly 690 tag along with the big boys is that....well....um....you'd likely kick our asses on that bike

It's OK. You KNOW that I understand........
I think KaTyM LIKES the abuse.

Mine seems to love me more, the worse I mistreat her.
All she seems to want in return are new shoes several times a year,
and good quality juice to lubricate her soul.

I've been talking to the fine folks at Giant Loop, and they're hooking me up with some good dirt to ride on our way up. Should be awesome.

For you Bay area/NorCal guys looking for a route up to Bend, check out the Pacific Crest Quest. I have ridden this from Yosemite to the Oregon border and it is a good, big bike friendly ride. Lots of dirt North of Truckee. Good 950 roads with some pavement that is mostly paved forest service type stuff.

Check it out here;
http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...ic+crest+quest

Last time we rode it, we went from Truckee to well above Lassen NP in one day (you have to slab on Hwy 89 through Lassen). We will do that again this time, stopping at Medicine Lake to camp and then heading on to Bend the next day.

From I-80/Truckee on up to Oregon is days 7,8,9 of the Quest.

I am thinking that we will be going up this way on Wed./Thurs. to arrive in Bend on Thurs. evening.

Brents347 - The PCQ route from Truckee north sounds pretty amazing from the ride report you linked in. It seemed to take them 4 days to get to Bend. Do you know ways around the trouble sections and dead ends they ran into?

Massive fires near Lassen and Shingletown/Manton may have an impact on your routing...
