2 - Basic Skills


Slightly more challenging than a level 1 ride. A rider with minimal experience will still feel comfortable riding a larger bike (such as a V-Strom 650) on a level 2 ride. Level 2 routes include primarily gravel roads with tighter corners and steeper grades. You may encounter some very easy double track. You should be comfortable with steady speeds on straight gravel, averaging 40 m.p.h. when appropriate.

Ride Description:

 Weather permitting, taking a quick roundabout ride to the club picnic.  Thinking about warming up on Bogus Basin Rd, heading out the backside and maybe looping up through Placerville, New Centerville and back down to the picnic.  All open to suggestions as I'm not sure how long that will take.  I figure 3 hours should leave plenty of time.  Hoping to keep it Level 2 so anyone can feel comfortable on whatever they ride, but one never knows.  As of now the weather doesn't look too promising for Saturday, so I may cancel if it looks too ugly.

Friday, September 11, 2020 - 9:00 a.m.

This ride will go to the top of two peaks north of Idaho City.  I've been to the top of Pilot Peak - the hard way.  This will be coming in from Highway 21.  We'll then come back down and go up the other side to Sunset Mountain Lookout, which I've never been to.

Ride Description:

Tenative plan is to hit Weiser Hot Springs, the sand dunes and Mineral challenge points. Meet at the Star Chevron and kick stands up at 9. If Im not there start without me,  probably means the Husky balked after a lomng winter nap. We'll find food somewhere enroute. Ive posted this as 2 assuming roads in to Mineral are in good condition.

Ride Description:

 It's Spring, so it must be time for the annual Prairie Run.  This is a casual, not difficult, club get-together.  It's a great opportunity to get out, meet some friends both old and new, and get the kinks worked out.  If you're new to riding, the club, or just the off the pavement aspect, this is a must-do.  Or if you've been riding for decades and just want a nice day out, it's for you as well.  Any bike size or experience level is fine.  The pace will be liesurely and the terrain not difficult.  Not an all-day butt-buster either.  Have some br
