    2nd Sunday of the Month ADV ride

    Informal ride to Lake Berryesa/Knoxville OHV area. ADVrider ride report We schedule this ride on the second Sunday every month...same meet up place, same meet up time...pending weather.

    Fear not! This is not hard-core dirt bike riding and knobbies are not required to ride this jeep trail. So it is okay if you do not have a dual-sport or ADV bike. All are welcome but you should feel comfortable riding your bike in the dirt, which is the same technique as wet pavement.

    For the truly adventurous looking for a challenge: We've seen this terrain handled comfortably on H-D Sportsters, a Ural with side car, vintage Triumph Bonnevilles, and sports bikes (See Sjaak Lucassen on an R1: )

    NOTE: This is an INFORMAL RIDE. There is no assigned lead or sweep. For those that would like to join the ride but skip the dirt portion of the route, you have the option of continuing on to the gas stop in Lower Lake on CA-29.

    Gas stops are sparse on this route so please have a full tank of gas when you arrive at Starbucks.

    So if you're feeling adventurous to join this ride, meet at 8:45am.

    PLEASE READ GUIDELINES BELOW. THEY WILL APPLY.

    Meetup: March 11, 2012
    Starbucks
    4470 Central Way Ste 100
    Fairfield, CA 94534

    Morgan Valley Rd. to the South Entrance of the Knoxville OHV area (N38.79.013 W122.21.182 or 38.829010 -122.347183 ). Turn left into Knoxville Devil's Head Rd. then follow signs to "Lower Camp" (38.810018 -122.374649).

    Oh man! This is the perfect ride for me, but the wrong Sunday!! It's the 1 Sunday this month I just can't get away.

    Subscribing to the thread and hopefully I can make the next one.

    Looks fun but don't think my Kingpin wants to go there! Maybe someday I can get a dual sport. I ride alone so much tho I'd be afraid to take on places alone.

    Take lots of pics & report back!!!

    Re: 2nd Sunday of the Month ADV ride

    Thanks, Dunc. The original post seemed to indicate it was going to be a regularly scheduled ride on the second Sunday of each month so I was hoping it was still happening.
