Just a reminder about a couple of upcoming events...
This Saturday is our annual Hells Canyon Ride. We plan to start riding at 11:00am which means you should probably leave McCall around 8:30am. For those who haven’t been, there it’s an old jeep road that sort of parallels the Snake River for about 15 miles making it a 30 mile round trip. The ride is really fun. Scenery is amazing. Dual Sport bikes are fine but I’d say it’s an advanced dual sport ride.
Directions: Continue north on the highway from Riggins and turn left just before Whitebird. Cross the Salmon River and follow the signs over Deer Creek Summit to Pittsburgh Landing. Just before you reach the campground and the boat ramp look for us in a grassy area on the right. If you get there late you’ll see two trail signs. Follow the right or Eastern trail.
Reminder number two is regarding our Forest Service chain saw training. Those of you who have responded please disregard and those of you who haven’t please pay attention! I need a head count and I also need to know if any of you have had previous Forest Service training. I also need to know if any of you have current first aid cards. Susan Jenkins is trying to set up a first aid course as we’ll need it for our saw certificates. The training will be Friday Apr. 20th through hopefully Sat. Apr. 21st . There is a chance that it will run into Sunday morning but it’s doubtful. Location is TBD. I’ll keep you posted.
SIGN UP FOR TRAINING
Also I’d like to announce that one of our young members, Porter Hamblin, took a third place in the Oreana 100 Race last Saturday! Porter is an amazing rider and this was his first race ever. I for one am really proud of him. Make sure you pat him on the back on Saturday.
Thanks and hope to see you on Saturday,
