Last couple years I've posted up similar threads and found that saying where I want to ride at the beginning of the year is just the added motivation I need to get out for a road trip to some place new.

This year's list:

1) Punisher
2) Skyline
3) Waterdog
4) North Coast riding with Trailseeker and Norton55 (paging Trailseeker, Norton55, Baycat :thumbsup: )
5) Something east of the Sierra, i.e. Moab, Fruita or White Mountain out of Bishop (been thinking of that one for a couple years now...)

Need some inspiration? Check out hit list threads from years past:

2008
2007
2006

Happy New Year's In Advance!

Well shee-it, I'm looking out my window at China Camp right now. Sounds like I can return the favor. I'll be in touch next time I'm free for a road trip, but in the meantime, pm anytime you want a tour of cc. :thumbsup:

Arizona. Ive been but not since 06 and am suffering a bit of withdrawl .... Palm Springs, CA also falls into that boat. Theres still a small chance that ill be MOVING to arizona in February, but unless a miracle happens with the paperwork required, i dont see it happening.

Want to make it down to Mammoth at least once, and I want to race Fontucky.

Otherwise, plan to do at least another week's worth of riding at Northstar, along with CCCX races, Santa Cruz, Demo, and all my other favorite usual spots.

1. Reggae Rising and back, all hot springs and dirt; 500+ miles in August.
2. Lassen to Shasta P.C.T.; freaking knarly, ultra-lite groveling, push-wack.
3. Tam to Diablo; all dirt connectors and single-track.
4. BayLa; Bay area ridge trail; 400 miles around the Bay. Haute-poach.
5. Lake Sonoma to Gualala hot springs. Mega 20,000' climbing, then warm 2-day soak.......

Love and Wheelies, G.
