What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Beat the heat this July and join us for some of the best summer ridding on the West Coast. You can expect mid to high 70's during the day and mid to high 40's for an overnight low.
We'll camp and stage from Glass Creek Campground. Glass Creek is a first come first serve campground, no reservations and no hookups. You can fill your water tanks at the Crestview Rest Stop which is halfway between Highway 203 and Glass Creek Rd or at the Mammoth Community water district office just off 395 on Highway 203. I'm planning on getting there that Tuesday to secure a campsite. Some of the sites are large enough to accommodate 2-3 rigs, therefore if you can get there mid week you could possibly secure a spot for multiple rigs for our group. The campgound will likely be full by that Friday. There is also Deadman campgound about 3.5 miles from Glass Creek and dispersed camping in the area, both of which you can ride from to the staging area.
I plan to lead full group rides on Friday and Saturday. I will be pre running on Wednesday and Thursday, if you would like to join for the pre run, let me know as I'll want to limit it to around 5 cars.
Preliminary route details for Friday and Saturday group rides are as follows. Drivers meeting Friday morning 8:30 at the info sign. Leave at 9:00 heading north around Obsidian Dome toward June lake look out for first stop, then on to the 158/395 intersection were there is a Shell station if anyone needs to gas up. From there we'll head accross 395 to check out the Sandy flats/Moon Crater area, from there we'll loop back and cross over 395 back to camp for lunch, estimating around 40 miles. After lunch an afternoon ride to check out the Inyo Craters, it's about 1/2 mile walk from the parking area to the craters. Then ride back to camp. I'm estimating 15-20 miles total for the afternoon ride.
Saturdays ride, drivers meeting 8:30 at the info sign and roll at 9:00. From camp we'll head South to the tunnel under 395, were we'll check out the Lookout Mountain loop and continue on to the hot springs and Lake Crowley. I expect this to be full day ride somewere in the 70-80 mile range. So pack a lunch. I'll have more details after pre running.
