    Well folks, it's that time of the year again!:wave Riding the Kern Plateau is something many of us look forward to each riding season. :thumb This riding weekend has something for everyone. Trails range from wide fireroads to narrow single track. There is something up there for everyone to enjoy. :ricky There is also sweet single track for both the intermediate rider and expert rider. The single track up there offers spectacular views of lush meadows and flowing creeks to dip into.

    We'll be camping at the same spot as previous years: Troy "OVERFLOW" (pull in and go all the way to the back).


    Troy OVERFLOW GPS coords:

    (entrance off main road)
    N36 03.825 W118 14.376

    (actual camp location)
    N36 03.809 W118 14.434


    Last year was a great time. Check out the ride report here:

    Who's the dummy on the 950 Adventure on that single track?

    I'm gonna miss so many people asking me where I'm going to ride since they want to ride "the easy stuff"

    Me and the 525 are IN ! Thanks M1

    looks like a blast, whats the arrangement for camping? Is camping free? im interested in coming down, Ill have a small truck and would leave friday afternoon. When does everyone plan on showing up? I can get their late friday early saturday and would go home sunday night/ monday morning.

    So put me down as an IN, just let me know what to do as far as camping and truck space. I wont need tent space Ill just crash in the truck.
