If you’ve made it here, then either you are a very good password guesser, or you belong at Shrimpfest.
Bike Ride with Fossil Foo
We’ll all be meeting at Xtracycle HQ (Willow Springs) in North San Juan on Friday between noon and 3pm. At 4pm promptly we’ll start heading for the river, with Fossil Fool and his SoulCycle leading the way. Those who wish to meet us along the way can do so at the Mother Truckers parking lot at 4:45p. Those who want to meet at the river at a later time, of course can! But parking will be extremely limited. There will be some sport utility bikes available to borrow for the group ride to the festival.
Directions to Willow Springs:
Take highway 49N from Nevada City 16 miles. Willow Springs is on your right as you come into North San Juan. You’ll see the magic bus and a bunch of white buildings.
Directions to Oak Tree Swimming Hole
At the intersection of Highways 49 and 20 in Nevada City, turn onto 49N (towards Downieville). You’ll quickly come to a light. Turn right onto North Bloomfield Road. At the top of the hill, turn left onto Lake Vera/Purdon. Go several miles to the bridge over the South Yuba River at Purdon Crossing. Don’t cross the bridge. Go straight past it to the parking lot. Take the lower trail by the garbage cans a third of a mile to the fiesta!
Also, you can get to that same bridge from Mother Truckers by going south on Purdon Road (there’s only one way to go on Purdon Road from Mother Truckers, but hey). When it splits in two, take the left dirt road down to the bridge, cross it, and turn left to the parking area.
