    Are there any long term AdvRiders that remember this ride? I remember it happened about 10 years ago, when I was still in SoCal. Are any of the old timers that may have done this ride, interested in doing it again? If it's still an annual ride, please post up and I'll be in on the next one :deal For those that don't remember, it was 500 miles in of Bay Area twisties, in one long ass day :evil

    Let's hook this up!!!!

    Haven't done the ride for years, as you mention. A spectacular route, but very difficult to accomplish in one day. Don't even attempt on a weekend. I kind of gave up on it, only because of the danger.

    Here is a link to the thread with GPS file:

    Never heard of this, but now I am interested. I am thinking of a three day work week weekend this summer. Turn it into a two dayer to make it more fun, with an extra day to travel from Nevada City. Thanks for bringing this up. With my flexible schedule, and my sweetie joining the ranks of the unemployed this spring, we will have more time for rides!

    I just read the thread from the very first year... That was some pretty funny shit. When this place first opened, we all knew each other. I still count some of my best friends in that group!

    You could use my place as a mid point camping spot should you choose to do it in 2 days. Also, this is more of a June 21st time frame thing as opposed to a Dec. 21st time frame. Just sayin

    Oh Yeah,Im in Chico and have ridden all over hell and back on the coastal twisties. It would be fun to hook up with other like minded loonies.
