There is a great deal of riding in Northern Nevada. What kind of terrain are you guys interested in. Just north of Winemucca, NV. there are quite a few old
mine camps, and even some old ghost towns.
If you guys come this way let me know.
How far is Stonyford from Reno, NV. Just curious not wanting to invite myself.

I would love to go riding after christmas but will be snowboarding in Jasper for the holidays with my wife and daugter. My daughter likes going for rides on the WR but my wife would like to blow it up.
There have been alot of post on stonyford lately, what are the condition like? We like it all. We have sand, hardpack, musgeg, and rock all with in a few hours drive. The riding is still good, with a light dusting of snow but highs off -5 deg C is making it hard to start old blue. Now I know why Yamaha made the plastic blue, To match my face after kicking it for 20 minutes!
We are also interested in Nevada because it is closer? My friends were thinking of sand because we do not use paddle tires much at home. I perfer trails but would just as happy to try the paddle tire.

Here is a link to the Burro Bend Café just outside the riding area:
Here is a link with maps and pictures and links to other SoCal riding areas:
If you’ve never ridden large dunes with a paddle tire I think you should try it. I’ve been to Glamis once and have been wanting to go back ever since. I do prefer a good, hard trail or sandwash but Glamis is such a huge, strange and fun place that everyone should try it (or something similar) at least once. Riding dunes (a paddle is necessary equipment) is totally different from trails, it requires different skills and is fun in a different way.
But for my next trip to Glamis (probably in Feb.) I’m planning on spending a day at Ocotillo Wells (it will be worth the tire change).
