Colfax DS Ride...any interest?

Don't know anybody here, just throwing this out there...

A fun water crossing, sand, interesting doubletrack, short but sweet singletrack, many many miles of fireroad, nice scenery, fun paved canyon roads...all in one day. Would like to get some other klr's together for this classic ride i've been enjoying. The dirt portion starts near Colfax and ends at Hwy 20 - but pushing through to Downieville is entirely possible (depending on the snow level). I have a solid group I ride with here, just thought it would be fun to run a large group of klr's through there POST UP IF INTERESTED and I will set date. Some photos to hopefully entice some of you.


nice fire road


nice doubtrackle


fun creek crossing


for a deeper and more challenging crossing you can cross here.


short but sweet.

It's all jeep and fire roads to Hwy20 from the top of the singletrack...

HERE TO RIDE

We used to have a groop of KLR's riding around there and south once a month... that was 2 yrs ago....

I'd like to do somemore of that. But, my bike needs alot of work (as in $) to get ready.... maybe someday soon...

I am very interested. Looks like a great ride but I don't know that area at all. Let me know when you are going next. I can generally make most Sundays & Mondays.

Dave,

Great. Maybe I can round a few more klr's up and we can make a day of it. I will post a date soon. It will probably be 2-3 weeks out as I am riding Death Valley or Jawbone next weekend...staying local after that for awhile.

Talk to you.

Sean

Ridgerunner-
keep posting the rides- I will eventually make it over there. This one was tough, wife's birthday on the 5th and mine on the 6th(true story)- can't get away with forgetting. Lots of drinking and potential for grief in two days. I will make the next one.
