Where: Movin' West RV Park (530-836-2614) (prices) (park map)
When: Monday, June 25th - Friday, June 29th (4 nights)
What: Cycling: 4 rides with a nice mix of terrain...flat (yes FLAT), rolling hills, long climbs/descents
What: Hiking: There are so many great hikes in this area, we'll try to fit in as many as possible (but at least two)
If you don't wish to camp, I recommend the River Pines Motel (price list here) that is only 1/2 mile away from the RV park. This is by far the best choice for lodging near the campground. Other options are Chalet View and Graeagle Meadows.
If Movin' West is full, there is Little Bear RV Park less than two miles away (although less than 200 feet from the railroad...). And further away, but a very nice park is Clio's River Edge RV Park (no tents allowed).

Sue Fry will once again run the BBQ / potluck at the Movin' West campground Tuesday evening. In the interest of having a "well-rounded" meal, we suggest the following dish assignment based on LAST NAMES:
U-Z: Appetizers (trying to mix it up for you who always have to bring dessert!)
Rose Asquith & Betty Bennett will coordinate the Dinner Out on Wednesday evening.
Here is the cycling route itinerary for Summer Camp. Please note that there are no sweeps on these rides but there will be SAG on two of the days. Also note that the routes are not finalized...rest stops need to be added and a final review needs to still be done.
Monday – Exploring Plumas Eureka State Park 4:00pm
Tuesday – Yuba Pass & Gold Lakes Road 9:00am (SAGGED) or flatter option The Big Flat Loop (short drive to start at 8:45am)
Wednesday – Indian Valley to Antelope Lake or Indian Valley to Genesee (leave Graeagle at 7:45am for a 41 mile commute to start location) SAGGED
Thursday – A13 & Lake Davis Loop – 9:00am (flatter/shorter option would be to turnaround at Hwy 70)
