What day are we riding?
Heading down Monday the 28th. Just wondering...
Big Daddy's right next to the G-ville/Minden border has maps. The owner Keith Hart is a good guy to talk to.rrivas11 said:Is there a place to get maps of the Minden / Gardnerville area? Come up from Vegas a few times a month, but have not ridden up there. One ride in South Tahoe this summer....
Peavine is all clay, it was completely covered in snow earlier in the week, lower flanks are snow free but it will be muddy for some time. You might be able to do some riding out of hidden valley regional park but even that is questionable.Lopaka said:I tried Evans Creek last week and it was so muddy the wheels couldn't turn after 100 yards. The mud was like glue, literally stopping the tire rotation. We just walked our bikes back to the car, spent $6.00 at the coin operated car wash to see paint again. It can't be any better this week.
While the preceding two posters are correct about the horrible daytime conditions on Peavine (too many similar experiences of my own on that mountain), you should have a window of opportunity tomorrow morning from sunup until about 9-10:00 a.m. to ride your legs off on Peavine. It's supposed to get down to 22 degrees F tonight, plenty cold enough to freeze the trails until they've seen direct sunlight for an hour or two. If you can get yourself into gear early tomorrow morning, you can get a great ride in. The same holds true for Hidden Valley, but unless you are familiar with the trails above the park, you're going to be restricted to some short (2-mile or so) loops in the park proper. I'd go for Peavine and plan to be off the mountain before 9:30.bikedrd said:Any reports on Peavine. I'm coming down from Tahoe Monday, Feb 1, to work and thought I might try it? Thanks.
