The City of Redding needs someone on point for bikes, and this is how you can help.

The City of Redding needs someone on point for bikes, and this is how you can help.

That fundamental cornerstone, the crux of the City of Redding’s ability to progress, is at the very least, a single full-time staff person with a focus on getting the human-scaled details of roadway construction and maintenance projects right, work with the community, identify priorities, plan for the future and get the cash to do it. 

The Pain Train

The Pain Train

On Sunday some riders did 65 miles and 14,500' around Whiskeytown Lake as part of the Pain Train Endurance Race. I road my moto around to get some shots, the day was epic and warm to say the least, I only shot until around 2pm because of the 3hrs of sleep that I got the night before, maybe next year I will be able to get up Shasta Bally for some more epic scenic shots.

Grassroots events like this is how Mountain Bike Racing got started, part of this course even touch on one of the first organized Mountain Bike events, The Whiskeytown Downhill.
