Greetings Fellow Cyclists,
First, but not last, RCMBA Board of Directors is meeting Monday, June 1, 2015 at Mad River Brewery. The meeting will start almost promptly at 6:30 p.m. Members, and the general public are invited to join us.
Next up – Forks of Salmon Century – Saturday, June 6, 2015. This is a SAG supported ride on some of the most amazing back roads in northern CA. For insurance purposes, this event is for RCMBA members only and there is no entry fee. Next year we are planning on partnering with Mid Klamath Watershed Council; the event will be open to the public, and there will be an entry fee.
We’ll ride in a clockwise direction heading out Sawyers Bar Road over Etna Summit to Etna. Right turn on Highway 3 to Callahan, and a right turn on Callahan – Cecilville Road. That will bring us back to Forks of Salmon. It is about 100 miles with around 10,000 feet of climbing. It’s not an easy ride, but it is less effort than the Tour of the Unknown Coast if for no other reason than the pavement is in such excellent condition. Did we mention that Etna Brewery is about mid-point of the ride, just in time for lunch? Riders need to be ready to ride from the Forks of Salmon Post Office at 8:00 a.m. There is camping available at Somes Bar, with showers, and cooking facilities Friday and Saturday night. For directions to camping, or more information about this event contact us at RCMBA.firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Tim at 707-668-1716.
And finally – Lacks Creek Trail Work Schedule. Our partners in trail love, Humboldt Trail Council Trail Stewards, have set a schedule for regular trail work days in Lacks Creek starting June 13, 2015. The new trail construction is on the east ridge of the valley, and though they are multi-use trails, they are being build with cycling in mind; meaning more smiles per mile. So mark your calendars as far ahead as you dare. Here they are: June 13, July 11, August 8, September 12, October 10, November 14, December 12. November and December days are weather dependent. Details for the June 13 trail work day will be coming soon.
Keep on ridin’
