2019 Ride Schedule

Cowboy Camp Date Change: rescheduled to June 1-2!!

We'll put links to printable registration forms for all rides in the table below. You can also sign up on-line at RMS, the NATRC Ride Management System, and many of our rides allow you to pay on-line.

Oh yeah. NATRC Region 2 (their rides are pretty much in So Cal and Arizona) isn't that far away and their rides are great, too - check out what they have to offer.

And most of our events will offer Leisure rides, designed to let riders figure out if NATRC is for them. A description of what's involved is here.

A "Welcome (back) to NATRC" clinic and 8- to 10-mile introductory ride will be held for the first time on the Pardee section of the Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail near Valley Springs.

Eel River Ride, June 29-30, Potter Valley, CA

We will be riding in an old land grant ranch that the Eel River runs through and borders the Mendocino Natl Forest. Our campsite is at about 1500' and we'll be climbing to about 3000', so it should be cooler than the valley floor, and the wildflowers should still be blooming. This ride is spectacular.
