Feather River Canyon Loop, March 31st

Our first one day event is scheduled for March 31st. The plan is to meet at Mimi's Cafe (Natomas area) at 7:30 AM and enjoy breakfast, getting on the road about 8:30ish. We will head up 99 to Hwy 70 thru Oroville to the Feather River Canyon. We will have lunch in Quincy and then drive Hwy 70 to Hwy 89 then on to Hwy 49. Hwy 49 starting west from Hwy 89 is a nice twisty road. We will follow Hwy 49 thru Nevada City ending up on I-80 near Auburn. The round trip is about 300 miles, so if you would like to join us, plan on a good 7 to 8 hours including lunch and breaks.

DeChief and I ran this last weekend and it goes through some beautiful country. In the event, we have bad weather on the 31st, we will reschedule for April 28th.

While this is a club event, any one wishing to attend is welcome to join us. We will post directions to Mimi's as we get closer to the 31st. If you have any questions, please let one of us know either by PM or a post to this thread.

This one seems to be getting a bit ignored at this point. Crystal and I plan on making this one also. Any opportunity to challenge the roads are welcome.

I would like to participate on the run March 31st. I'm new to this site and not sure how it really works yet. Do I just show up at Mimi's?

Thanks

Man, you're just a traveling man! You're coming down to So Cal for the weekend meet up at Pine Mountain Club in the Los Padres National Forrest this weekend March 24/25, AND you considered going the following weekend to Feather River?

Well, all I can say is wow! NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL ENTHUSIASM!!! :thumbs:

Welcome Borg60,

We would love to have you along. What area are you in? Pretty much the way it goes is to state here on the thread or by PM to Chance or DeChief that you will be joining the event and then just show and go from there. We have a great group and a great time.

I'm in the Elk Grove area. I would be interested in going.

Thanks.
Gunny is totally correct! You are more than welcome to join us. I will get directions to Mimi's in Natomas as soon as I can find the correct directions.:(

Now you see my problem.:lol: There actually is a Mimi's at Natomas, Dechief and I ate there the day we scouted out this drive. But Mapquest keeps putting it in the wrong place when I look it up, so I guess I will have to drive there this weekend and write street names down.

Stay tuned.

Cool! Thanks borg60!

The directions are pretty easy.
From I80 go west at the Truxel exit, turn right on Gateway Park Blvd, Mimi's is on the corner of Gateway Park Blvd and North Freeway Blvd. (You can access the paking lot by continuing thru the light past North Freeway Blvd. and taking the first right into the parking lot access).
From I5 go north on Arena Blvd, turn right onto Truxel, and left onto Gateway Park Blvd.

Will see you all there!

Chance
