    There has been a lot of demand to do WWD2016 early in the season, so probably mid to late May

    Interesting that sept is even better than june for numbers...at least from the random spot I picked.

    Either way, I'm hungry to ride cali at some point next season!

    Middle of summer is disgusting in NorCal, way too hot. Sept can even be over the top hot some years.

    I suggest when looking at areas, hone in on the ones on this thread or other WWD threads for reference.

    Could someone post a google map of the fabled RTIS .
    There's like 3 ways to get from Oroville to Quincy and they all look pretty fun on a map.

    one of the issues with rtits is the ride out after. i think last time there was some talk of simply doubling back to the 70 after. the good part is la porte road to little grass valley road.

    that edited route takes you right by a gas station on the corner of clark road and the durham-pentz highway. perfect spot for fuel and some refreshments if the weather is hot.

    transportation time to get there as it is from your house here.

    Los Angeles is a long way from riding in Norcal in the spring/summer/fall if you wanted to... that is the downside.
    so just store two bike then, one in LA and one in Redding.

    problem solved!

    I can understand the temptation to reverse, but the run down thru Forbestown and over to Oroville is pretty nice.

    or you could reverse, then come back from Quincy via Bucks Lake:

    we rode that on WWD 2011 (Rubherdown, Syncro, and I), with a detour at Bald Mtn. nice road, altho it was frikkin cold and actually blowing snow up top (Oct 5)

    the section to forbestown is good but the last bit to oroville is pretty crappy having ridden it a few times now,

    yes - totally forgot about that. the road wasn't as fun as it could have been due to the weather. i remember the road crew that was working and had us stopped for a bit near the top thought we were a bit nuts. we were worried we were going to get stuck in the blizzard that was moving in.

    "Day #3:

    This was the standard, yet always great, Hwy 36 to Coast, lunch at Eel River Brew Pub in Eureka and then down the 101 to Fortuna where we'd blast back up Hwy 299 towards Redding.

    36 was amazing......from old Wildwood store to the road towards Hayfork.......BRAND NEW UNMOLESTED pavement. All the really twisty canyon stuff was days old.

    No painted lines on the road, no street signs, just fresh black, perfectly clean pavement.....quite a treat.

    After lunch, heading towards Fortuna for our ride on 299......the skies were looking a bit ominous........well, for good reason.......we were rained on for about 75% of the way back.

    Stopped in Weaverville for a rest and snuck our bikes under the gas station eaves to get cover before the last leg back to Anderson.

    We did manage to get some super turns in down by the river, with dry roads and also had our own with the super tight downhill stuff near the end, which was great. "



    Fresh new pavement on 36 must have been heavenly. How is the traffic on 36? Last time i rode it we saw maybe a vehicle an hour. 299 was alot busier though, but tons of fun regardless.
    Sounds like a great trip.
