It's almost the end of another year's riding. Downieville, Whistler and trips to Northstar are fading into fond memories. A few pictures and one or two scars are all that's left. It'd be easy to think the best of it is over and done with. Just get on with the weekly rides on the local trails until next year's season kicks in. But northern Cali' still has some real treats to offer, and this weekend they were indulged in. The tinder dry, talcum powdery trails have been doused with some intense, but scattered rains to create the best, cake batter-like singletrack. Mix this with some loamey earth and a carpet of fallen leaves and you have a recipe for some epic riding.

It won't be long before the woolly thermals are needed and more rain turns the cake mix into muddy goop. Then we'll be grinding the fireroads of Tam' as we wait for the usual haunts to dry out. Until then, we've got a few more solid sessions in perfect conditions to enjoy. Gotta love California riding!
