    Riding the Black Rock Playa almost became a really big problem.

    Maverick (aka Steve) the not right dog chasing embers.

    Home. 600 miles and change from Cedarville to Ely on Saturday. Then a quick 200 to Cedar City today. Wanted to push on home last night and do the full 800 (never ridden that far in a day) but my tire was sketchy and didn't want to risk a blowout after dark a hundred miles from anywhere. Showing chords when I rolled into my driveway.


    Anyway, nice meeting you folks. In a while I'll post a picture or two of my little ride.

    Home in the tub. Sounds like Mr. Hobbes is cooking up something for us in the kitchen. Dog is happy that mom is home. Thanks Cootz!

    @oldoval, did you take Janesville grade? I ended up over there and realized that was where you had been headed.

    I did, wasn't impressed. Tar snakes, crackheads in blind corners, meh. Pretty scenery but not much else. Not sure how that road ended up on my "Gotta ride list".

    Got home an hour ago. Didn't melt crossing the Central Valley.
    It was an experience meeting you. Might do this one again.
    Cootz, thanks for brewing this thing up.

    Who did win Steve in the raffle? They left their prize.

    You really give your tour customers their money's worth! :lol3 Spent some of the drive home thinking about all the ways that could have gotten ugly.

    Yes the tar snakes sucked. With a good pavement I could see it as a must ride. Especially if you follow the various roads out to Beckworth.

    60 mile-per-hour sweepers on fresh clean tarmac, no traffic.

    IMG_20190609_124111187_HDR.jpg

    Of course good tires would be key because I hit several miles of this.

    IMG_20190609_120447921_HDR.jpg

    I am marking this area as a spot to investigate. Lots of side roads, and super beautiful.

    IMG_20190609_122832956.jpg

    But back to Cedarville.

    I thought about making my way down to Beckworth, but by then I could see through my tires... thought better of it and turned around. Looks like I missed some good stuff. :bluduh

    If good stuff is a flat tire, yeah. Next year you can route through Nevada City and ride up with me and Mr. Hobbes.

    Home! Had a pleasant ride home. Left at 9:30 after a quick sweep of camp. It was in great shape, thank you all. Home at 7:05.


    A big thank you to @m0t0-ryder and @Mofrid for their contributions to our comfort. This is the no stress rally.

    I rode out to Ft. Bidwell to Adel then we took Coleman valley to 34 to the vya cut out to 8A. Very fun and chill. Thanks to @nony mouse and @tag3.

    TBC.

    I went to a roadside hot spring with @Hobbes950 and @SFMCjohn. It was a sweet little spot. MVIMG_20190608_185426.jpg

    Here's the tow of shame... IMG_20190608_174421.jpg IMG_20190608_174439.jpg IMG_20190609_091718.jpg Steve the tweaker dog. I'm tempted to have a bag of dog chow mailed to his dad's work.

    I got back to Sac around 4:00. Took the scenic route around the west side of Eagle Lake. I turned west at Lake Almanor and rode some dirt past Butt Lake to Caribou and out to Hwy. 70. Finished up by riding down the Feather River, into Oroville (saw the south edge of the Camp Fire burn (sad)), and down to home. I was not cold.

    Thanks @Sfcootz for organizing. Nice to see/meet everybody.

    I hope Steve will be ok.
