Saturday, December 5th, 2009 9:00 AM One Mile Recreation Area

The classic ride of Table Mountain, Oregon Gulch road and Pentz. From Chico we roll
past Butte College and hit the foothills up to Cherokee Rd. We climb and descend
Cherokee all the way across Table Mountain before backtracking a mile or so to the start
of the dirt on Oregon Gulch Rd. This five-mile stretch of good gravel has a few ups and
downs before a steep kicker up to the first KOM at the Covered Bridge. Descend back
down Cherokee and head straight up Pentz Rd into Paradise for KOM # 2. Work our way
through town and descend Neal Rd for a sprint before 99, cross 99, and finish with a
second sprint on Chico-Oroville HWY.
Notes: These rides are organized for fun(?) and are open to all who are willing to try.
Some rides utilize out and back portions and regrouping is encouraged! Road bikes with
sturdy tires should be fine. We will try to have a support vehicle(s) but please come
prepared, ride with a partner and have a plan to get home. Please dress WARM and bring
plenty of food, water and supplies and take responsibility for yourselves. We will
describe the route, but there will be minimal course markings, no road closures, aid
stations or coffee stops, just dogs, squirrels, pickup trucks, and a bunch of bikers on a
sweet ride in the cuts! For more info on the Cutty Series or other Chico area rides contact Aren at or (530) 892-9868.
