I am planning a Club Fall Colors ride for October 21st!
Will leave BoomTown Chevron at 9:30 am
Travel through Verdi and Dog Valley to Babbit Peak, then over Sardine Peak, and down to Sierraville (via Bear Valley Campground-Lemon Cyn Rd/CR 650) for Lunch. Will travel from Sierraville via Old Truckee/Sierraville Road to Little Truckee Summit. Over the Trestles to Kyburz Flat and then into Sardine Valley. Then Henness Pass Rd. back to Verdi.
Plan for a day-long trip. Gas at Serriaville.

Great ride idea.
What does “C-level ride” mean?
Is this an on road “adventure bike” or dual sport/motocross bike ride?October 12, 2023 at 5:37 pm #2704
James – scroll down the homepage and you will find DDMC ride ranking. This should answer your question

I’m pretty sure I’m coming.October 13, 2023 at 10:38 am #2766
Some rocky roads, especially up to Babbit Peak Lookout, but no bad. Other than that the roads are good Forest Service roads. Here is a Garmin/GPX track of the planned Route (??).

I’m in. Let’s see if I can get across Merrill Creek without wadding it up this time.

Sounds like a great ride, but I am riding MX this weekend. My wife might notice if I disappear on both Saturday and Sunday. Have fun everyone!

My neighbor did a pavement ride through Sierra and Plumas counties and did find a fall color:
