    I'm out. Not enough time to get up there from work and then there's a strong possibility of a mandatory holdover for Saturday.

    Hey Guys,

    I'm going to postpone the ride due to weather.

    Looks like rain is going to start about noon but I'm
    more worried about the temperature. Cloverdale is
    forecasting 37 degrees between 9 and 10. Geysers road
    which is just east of Cloverdale goes up to 2700' and the
    pavement may be icy. We don't want any carnage.

    Anyway, keep an eye for a future date, hopefully sometime soon.

    On this particular ride Old Toll Road is easy dirt. It's used for accessing homes and
    ranches in the area.

    Cow Mountain is BLM OHV area and has everything from easy fire roads to
    knarly, tight, rock and root strewn single track.

    It also has lots of fun jeep trails that are fun and challenging on big bikes,
    but doable.

    Hope that helps.

    A few of us are riding dirtbikes at Cow Mtn tomorrow. We're meeting at
    the west side staging area at 8:30am.

    I'll organize some dualsport rides after Christmas to get ready for the
    4th annual Mendo Rally in May.

    You're welcome to join us Refer. I'm riding a street legal bike tomorrow on the trails but it's only a 450. A 650 is doable but a little big.
