RCMBA Forks of Salmon Century!

Greetings Fellow Cyclists,

Sadly, last year marked Bigfoot Bicycle Club’s final Forks of Salmon Century ride. Fortunately, RCMBA is not going to let it go so easily, but we need better participation. Last year we had a pretty low turnout, and it’s hard to justify keeping it going unless we get more riders. To help make the ride more enticing, we’ve moved the ride day to Saturday instead of Sunday.

So mark your calendar NOW! Saturday, June 6, 2015 we ride Forks of Salmon Century. If you haven’t been out there, and you like riding nice smooth pavement, you’re in for a treat. Don’t ask me why one of the smallest counties in the state has the best back roads, but they put our roads in Humboldt to deep, deep shame. And not only do you get to ride on some of the nicest back roads you’ve seen this side of I-5, but the event is supported by a SAG vehicle, and punctuated with a rest stop at the Etna Brewery about half way through the ride.

We have a private campground reserved just for us at Somes Bar for Friday and Saturday night, but feel free to come up just for the ride on Saturday. Saturday evening after the ride we’ll have a potluck barbecue at the campground for those who decide to stay the night.

This ride is open to all RCMBA members. Stay tuned for details as they develop.

When you know you’re planning on joining us, let us know right away at RCMBA.info@gmail.com so we know how many riders to plan for.

See you on the road and on the trails.
