Lacks Creek Ride Day: A Podcast!

Out beyond the coastal fog, and passed the reminders of our day to day grind, there hides a special trail system ready for any adventurous soul to explore. Lacks Creek, BLM managed land in Redwood Valley, is a unique area undergoing some big changes. A group of dedicated trail builders have been working on a mountain bike specific multi-use trail system that offers a new flavor to the biking scene of Humboldt County. With flow-tech descents, precious single-track, and the most epic views, it is the perfect place to bring all levels of mountain bikers to have a good time. So that’s what happened on May 2nd… The RCMBA promoted a group ride out at Lacks with food and beer and a big group of happy bikers to share it all with. Being the evolving reporter that I am, I couldn’t help but document…Check out the podcast…and scroll down to see some fun photos and videos while it plays!
