    Big Bike Adventure Challenge

     Mendocino National Forest

     


    This is a 110 mile 2 day off road ride on forest service roads with single-track options along the route. The route will have both skill and navigational challenges along the way. GPX files will be provided.  All riders and bikes are welcome!  Here are all the details:

    • The ride begins Saturday morning June 10th at Middlecreek Campground near Upper Lake. 
    • Plan to arrive on Friday night and "check-in" with the ride organizer.
    • Camping Friday is "no-host" so you'll need to pay the park (price ranges from $8 to $14) 
    • Sag wagon for gear and chuck wagon style dinner Saturday night will be provided at the remote camp sight.
    • Sunday you navigate back to Middlecreek Campground and retrieve your gear.

    The entire ride can be done on forest service roads if a rider chooses not to do the optional trails. A stream crossing is included. The optional trails will have hill ascents and descent, mud and ruts. The stream crossing is not optional. The optional trails require intermediate to advance riding skill level and all riders must ride in pairs.

     

    Registration opens to club members on April 3rd, 2017, $35, & April 17, 2017, for the general public, also $35.  For any and all questions, contact Buddy at historian@bmwnorcal.org!

    One of the outstanding water-oriented recreation areas in the world, the area offers great fishing, including striped bass, sturgeon, catfish, bluegill, perch and bullhead. Frank’s Tract, a protected wetland marsh, is home to beaver, muskrat, river otter, mink and 76 species of birds.

    The park is on Highway 160 a few miles south of the city of Rio Vista in Sacramento County. The park is located on the lower peninsular extension of Brannan Island, and is surrounded by the Sacramento River on the west, Three Mile Slough on the southeast, and Seven Mile Slough on the northeast.

    The park has a ten lane launch ramp, over 140 campsites and areas for picnicking and swimming.

    Day use areas include the Windy Cove windsurfing access, the group picnic area located at the Ramadas, and Seven Mile Slough picnic area. The group picnic facility and Seven Mile Slough day use area close at sunset. Windy Cove closes at the hour posted at the entrance road to Windy Cove.

    Seven Mile Slough picnic area includes picnic tables, barbecues and drinking water. New restroom facilities were completed late in 1997 and include flush toilets and outdoor cold showers.  NO LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY for the 2011 season. A Life Jacket Lending Board will be available.  Ample parking is close to the beach.

    The Ramadas have shaded picnic structures with large barbecues, picnic tables, water and trash receptacles. A large open grassy area is adjacent to the site for games. The closest restroom to the Ramadas is located north of the swim beach along Seven Mile Slough.

    In all of these day use areas possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

    At Seven Mile Slough and Windy Cove, beaches are off limits to dogs. Dogs are allowed in the picnic area north of the restrooms, along Seven Mile Slough. Dogs must be on leash and in the owners control at all times.
