How's your ass, ass?
Ice axe needed?
Let's hope not, fresh powder? Extra gas is always good.....
We were thinking of riding out of JBone but if you're in we could meet at Piute Mtn rd 9am, let me know.
I noticed the webcam page has two new cams out of Kernville, cool.
dirtrider guy, you interested 2/1?
January snow in Sequoia, finally!
John & Ben, have a great ride guys. It's nice over here below sea level.
We will be riding in Nevada tomorrow.
I sent a few Washington hardcore singletrack riders to the Sequoias over the weekend and I got a text this morning saying it was some of their favorite riding. ever.
they were in Death Valley and making their way home, so we handed them a map of the area.
they plan on coming down this summer to ride the Piutes with us.
Yeah, One only needs to refer to the first post of this thread where I said "some of the best riding on the planet" If you like single track and the Gnar, this is the place.:eek1
lets do jungles back to the ussa ride!
koa feb 28-mar 2 get the boys back together
im sure he already has a plan in mind :eek1:eek1:eek1:eek1
Ok, let's go!
they have some gnarly shit in Washington.
I'll be up there this summer riding with them. stoked.
I would love to ride Feb 28-March 2 but I'll be visiting Seattle then. braaaap.
Shhhhh ... don't tell them about the Chronicles of Gnarnia.
I'll be up there in late August!
I wish I could ride that weekend also, but I'm coaching then so I can ride Baja for 10 days at the end of March!
I'm one of the 3 WA riders that RAZR sent to this gem of a riding area. Sweet Jesus was it amazing...and we only rode it for 1 day. Terrain seemed limitless with the Piutes south and southern Sierras to the north. You guys for sure have it good here. As I told RAZR this is one of the best areas I've ever ridden and despite having just got back from the ass-jarring 29 hr road trip I'd almost be convinced to go back down for some more.
Luckily we had a tour guide that we met at camp the night before, said he'd been riding the area for 20+ years (Scott or Steve?). Him and his crew took us down Kern River Valley trail for awhile then up something to snow-line, down something that eventually took us to Dutch Flats then home...great ride.
Nice meeting you and your boys RAZR, looks like a rowdy fun crowd that I hope to ride with soon. Thanks again for the map!
Scott? Happytrails maybe? Rayvon, were you up there?
I was the other loud mouth with RAZR going over the map with you. So you hit Kern River Valley Trail? Nice choice for a single day. Did you stay on long enough to hit the cliff section with no turnaround that we were mentioning
They'd know for sure, just about zero room for error, especially the 1 little drop off
It was Scott, Bob (73 yrs!), and a few other guys whose names I can't remember. One on a DRZ and the other on a Yamaha that started out the day real pretty.
I'd guess we did not go to the point of no return on the river trail as none of it we had hit seemed overly consequential...what a nice trail though.
Single day wasn't near enough for us, could've stayed until the snow cleared...just not in Lake Isabella...that place was weird.
Nice recommendation on the Kern River Brew Co. They had a IPA (Cittra) that even us NW'ers would be proud of.
I understand about drop off's...this one from last year in my neck of the woods. It was quite the aerial:
It's raining here in the Valley and snowing up on the mountain.
looks like his bike really needed a bath.
get your crew down here sometime this Summer or Fall.
in September we have an annual un-rally called the Freedom Ride. last weekend in September.
just received an email from Stewards of the Sequoia and they're having trail maintenance with Roger the trail boss on Saturday Feb 15 and Sunday 16, then again on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23.
anyone wanna carpool up?
i could do Feb 16.
possibly drive up Saturday evening, camp (or motel) then move some trees.
