North Tahoe Camp trip with MTB Tahoe and ROMP

North Tahoe Camping, Trail work, and Ride.

 

We're heading up to join good friend of San Jose Mtb, Linda George (Organizer of R.O.M.P.), for a weekend of trail work and riding.  The plan is for everyone to begin arriving Thursday, however because of my work schedule I won't be leaving until after work on Friday.  We'll figure out a convenient way to meet so that we can all carpool together.  If you can leave early and want to get in some extra riding then head out Thursday morning and hook up with the group for rides both Thursday and Friday.

 

If you're coming up with us then your weekend will start with getting settled into camp on Friday evening.  Saturday morning will head out to Hole in the Ground for some hard work.  The plan is to work until the early afternoon, so there may be time for a short ride afterward.  Sunday is all about riding.  We'll let people hook up with the ride they want to try out.  I think Jason and I will be doing a pretty long/more advanced ride, but there will be options for Intermediate and Advanced riders alike.

 

Hope to see some of you out there with us.

 

Cheers,

David

      I don't get off work till at least 5. A relative recently passed, and I'm not sure if funeral is this weekend, in which case I would not be going.

    yup, finally officially not going. Sorry folks. I hope we can put together another trip like this soon though.

      actually, I guess it's only one other, but still

    • David

      Yeah, sorry man. I'm hoping this is the last of my bike issues for the year.

      August 14, 2013

  • David

    I may not be able to make this happen for me... My bike is still in the shop with no word on when parts will all arrive and be ready.

      Was thinking about staying at my brother's place in Sacramento Friday night. Meeting up with them sat morning.

      I was worried I was going to have to go with my SPD's, but the good folks at Atomlab shipped me new bushings for my flats at no cost. Quite happy with them.

      @Leah it's tentatively on the schedule for Saturday afternoon if there's interest. @Jason it's near Northstar.

      August 6, 2013

    • Leah

      there's interest so far (from me). : p my friend can make it, so i'll see you guys there. we registered thru the other groups & to not take up your couple of spaces left.

    I had made reservations for this a few months ago, but didn't realize there was also a meetup for it. See you there.

    Hey guys here's the link to register for your camp site... http://www.romp.org/donner-event-registration/

      Hi Alex, good question. It's $35 for camping even for a night or two, because each campsite holds more than one camper - we don't get a discount if some of us get there later. But on Saturday there'll be bagels & coffee courtesy of REI, Deschutes beer provided after trail work, and some sort of snack/food/social thing around dinnertime - maybe that'll help you decide (that plus fun rides, great lake nearby, ... :) The other possible expense is $6/car per night for 2nd+ car(s) at a site; we're checking on nearby parking that would be free. Oh, and quarters for hot showers at camp.

      August 5, 2013

    • Linda G

      oh - p.s. we have the sites through Monday morning, so we don't need to check out by noon & can take showers, pack, etc. after riding on Sunday. so it'd work to camp Sunday night too, if anyone's interested!

    I'm not going to officially sign up (I don't want to fill one of the 6 spaces - I'll already be there!) but I'm excited that you'll be joining us! Should be a great trip. We'll be posting a ride schedule soon; the organized group rides will be in the North Lake / Truckee / Donner area, some from camp. & yes, you might definitely like Missing Link (it's an option for the Friday group ride) and some others in the area...
    @Alex, hard to say. Not sure if they're irrigating beyond LW, but in general (around Truckee) the trails haven't been as dusty as I'd expected given the non-snowy winter.
    @Marti, we'll be camping Donner Lake State Park - good amenities, including hot showers and the lake nearby, great for post-ride swimming!

    I'm worried Northstar might be super dry and dusty this time of year. You guys interested in riding Mr. Toad's?

    July 29, 2013

    • Jason W.

      Toads would work. It is in south lake tahoe. Also there is a trail called missing link which might be fun.

    • David

      So romp already has some rides planned. I'd like to see what they're up to before just doing our own thing.

      July 29, 2013

  • Holly W.

    Sorry, we had to cancel due to scheduling conflict. Have a great time!

    July 29, 2013

  • Jason W.

    So I just got my downhill bike. Should we go to Northstar on SUnday? I know you guys don't have that kind of rig, so if not I'd be down with other ride as well.

    July 29, 2013

  • Marti

    I meant Donner, stupid spell check

    July 21, 2013

    • David

      Yup it's tent camping... I'll post up more details about the camping itself when I get them.

      July 21, 2013

  • Marti

    David, are you camping at dinner? Is it tents?
