Notes:
This will be a sort of a “Wild Goose Chase” ride, but we’ll be riding hard and riding fast!  Bring your dogs, as we will have a fire for lunch. Plan to be flexible because I will not do a pre-ride so what you see is what you get. I do not recommend two-wheel drive ATVs or dirt bikes due to terrain, snow and mud.

    On President’s Day, 16 riders from all area clubs gathered for a TBD ride coordinated by Travis Tyson. After a breakfast discussion, it was decided to begin at the End of Pavement on Silver City Road, ride to Sink-er Creek and Pickett Creek with Ed Hartsock in the lead. Most expected to find mud and/or snow given the Owyhee’s weather forecast. Instead, conditions were good with only a few snowflakes in the morning, very little wind with some afternoon sunshine.

    Sinker Creek, offered at least 30 crossings, was interesting, but not difficult. One rider slid into a hole at a crossing and received a boot full of water. The machine was pushed from the hole and all continued on to an old log cabin and corral area.

    Lunch at Pickett Creek was pleasant with a fire to roast hotdogs and a little sunshine. The ride back skirted Sinker Creek Reservoir, but the nearest portion was underwater. We returned along Sinker Creek, repeating the crossings and stopped to enjoy some unique lava formations.
