Just came back from a 2 day ride in the sierras out of Boomtown Nevada just east of truckee on Interstate 80. Great riding lots of singal track and duel track trails, creek crossings, and hills. We rode from Boomtown to Border town, which is on 395 in Nevada. It's about a 50 mile ride across the sierras, to Border town. You can gas up have lunch, or even gamble if you want. the altitude ranges from 5,000 to 8,000 feet, nice and cool, even had some thunder storms. Great riding place to get out of the Valley heat for all the northern Calif. riders.

Sounds like an excellent ride. What about a future ride up there with the No. Cal boys? This weekend I'll be going to Grizzly flats in the El dorado national forest. Have you ever been there?

I have never been to Grizzly flats but my riding buddy (Howard) who has says it's excellent. We'll be staying at his friends house which apparently borders the national forest. Since I don't know the owner it wouldn't be appropriate for me to invite you to stay at his house. But that doesn't mean we can't meet up there and do some riding! We plan on riding both this Saturday & Sunday. If you want to meet let me know and I'll talk to Howard about where a good place would be.
