RMB Info

Redding Mountain Biking meets every Saturday at 8:45 at Sunset Market. Tomorrow's ride is on the Westside Trail so if you don't know that area you should come on out. Next Saturday will be a long ride on the new Hornbeck/Sacramento Ditch trails with some "secret" trails like Rockamole mixed in. http://www.visitredding.com/documents/pdf/keswicktrails.pdf If you haven't ridden the Swasey Recreation area you should check it out too, great riding there and you can pedal into Whiskeytown:cool: http://www.healthyshasta.org/downloads/Swasey_BLM.pdf

I'm going to be up Redding next Saturday (12-27), what kind of mileage are you expecting out of that ride? I think I remember riding around there a few years back....well east of keswick dam atleast

Also rain or shine right?

Mileage will be 30+, but much of the route is flat so it goes pretty quickly. There are also a number of bail out points. Most of the trails we'll ride are less than a year old, so I doubt you've seen them before. A little rain won't stop us, but buckets of rain and howling winds will. Hope to see you next week!

Not hating on anything

But I would recommend if your only going to be in town for a ride or two, unless you are a beginner, not to waste your time on the hornbeck trail. Think, wide, flat, no flow. You would be better served with riding any of the stuff off swazey or out at whiskeytown. Or hooking up with a local and sampling all the really local stuff, i.e. twister, salt creek, clair de lume....

I used to live in Redding, biked quite a bit around Swasey--my friend lived right there and hit up whiskeytown quite a bit but I never remember where the trails were, I was a follower, not a leader. I do remember Boulder Creek though, fun stuff--that loop we had 5 flats for a 4 man group :eek:.

Clair de Lune=right off iron mountain road right?

Skip...I'm in Redding from xmas to saturday or sunday and I'd love to ride a day in between, or everyday :thumbsup:

I ride Walker Mine Rd trail (on lake blvd) up to Shasta Dam, like 9 miles. Also Walker Mine to Quartz Hill.
Walker Mine Rd to Shasta Dam is the upper Sacramento Ditch Trail. Walker Mine Rd to Quartz Hill Rd is Lower Sacramento Ditch Trail to Hornbeck Trail, or all Hornbeck depending on which route you choose. I like riding both the lower and upper Sac Ditch portions, they have a nice flow and you can a good 60 mins of cardio workout if you push it:thumbsup:

Rockamole is part of the old beltline that supplied the gravel for Shasta Dam. Its roughly beneath the scenic overlook. Its a steep place where a bunch of gravel fell off the beltline. Some days I ride it, most days I walk.

"Washout" back when I was a kid. WE used to ride out there on our bmx bikes. Thats where Ronnie Naylor probably learned all his mad skills for racing motos. Thanks for jolting my memory Ron.:D
