URGENT! Support Oregon Gulch for Trails & Open Space!

385 acres of City owned property and possibly an additional 160 acres for a total of 560 acres could be preserved as a Natural Area with hiking and biking trails.  This would preserve a wildlife corridor and protect the habitat.  It could also lead to connectivity with other Redding trails.

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.
