Climb Descend Repeat -in and around Redding

Here’s a locally produced film of a couple of mountain bikers enjoying some local trails around Redding. The terrain will look familiar to northstate viewers, even if you haven’t actually been on these particular trails. Nice production. Nice riding.
We boast an amazing system of trails throughout the Redding and Shasta region. A strong culture of riding has naturally followed. You can learn more from the good folks at Ride Redding, who are committed to promoting all aspects of our local bike community.

Riley rides Redding

In Redding, we are blessed to have Whiskeytown National Recreation Area literally a few minutes drive to the west. In addition to being home to a beautiful lake, the area has numerous trails to explore. Below, my friend and colleague Riley Johnson of Shasta Home Inspections quietly rides a single track section of the famous 10 mile Chimney trail in this brief video. Check it out:
It offers a glimpse into the adventure, but also the serenity of the ride. There are lots of trails at the park. This website details local trails and offers an interesting 3D view of the path. 5 miles uphill, and 5 miles downhill.

Mt Shasta gets light cloak of snow

A gentle dusting signals our Fall season. The mountain has looked stark and barren all Summer. This light snowfall is so very welcome.

Mt Shasta ToyonThe Toyon berries above are still more orange than red. But Fall has begun. Let us hope it is a wet season.

A few soothing minutes from Patrick’s Point

Patricks Point 3

Patricks Point 2This brief meditation is brought to you by Patrick’s Point State Park, which is just about a 3 hour drive west of Really Redding. A very beautiful drive, one might add. One of my favorite spots in Northern California, and a real treasure to have available just a few hours away.
