JULY 13 & 14                           GREENHORN RIDE

Unlike our 2017 ride, this ride is 2 completely different 1-day rides that start/finish each day in Colfax, with trails from Nevada City to Hiway 20 to the Foresthill trail riding area. A lot of fun single track, nothing difficult. Ride and learn the best way to connect it all.



AUG 16, 17 & 18                      BORDER RIDE

This is 3-days of great high Sierra dual sport trailriding thru Tahoe Nat’l Forest and forests of Nevada.  Each day is a different independent loop that finishes at the same location it started, so you can ride just 1-day, or Friday/Sat or Sat/Sunday, or all 3 days. Ride it this weekend or get the roll charts and GPS by mail and ride it at your convenience. No gear transport, no gas truck needed.  Starting in North  Lake Tahoe, but that’s all we’re telling you here. We a have private group buffet dinner Saturday, and your sign-up payment pays for the cost of your share.


SEPT 14 & 15                            WILDSIDE RIDE

This looks to be  an even better ride now than last year. Its still a new area of trailriding for ACT rides, so its back on the Calendar same date as first scheduled for this year, weekend before hunting season. With the long term loss of Stonyford, all of Penny Pines area and Cow Mtn riding, and overcrowding of other areas, I want to give ACT riders the opportunity to learn this lightly used area before my last year is over. There is no better or easier way to learn a new area with so many trails than on this ride. It would take an average rider years to learn what you get in 2-days. This is a camp-out with bar and restaurant nearby. There is lodging nearby but we’ll start/finish each day at an undeveloped free creekside camp.  Each day’s ride is a separate 1-day loop thru the northern Coast Range Mountains of the 6-Rivers and Shasta Nat’l Forests.



OCT 4, 5 & 6                            BONANZA RIDE

This is a 3-day ride Friday thru Sunday, or you can ride Friday/Saturday only with the 3-day riders on the same route.  Either way  has a great combination of  routes from  several of our favorite rides. Awesome scenery each day across a huge diverse area of Northern California into Nevada at 5 to 9,000 feet. From Kirkwood ski resort to Virginia City, where you’ll step back in time in this historic tourist town of Bonanza TV fame. Ride the big hills of Yerington, razor back ridge trails, and sandy barrel-ride gullies to Sweetwater. Lots of fun desert single track winding thru Pine Nut Mtn forests, even an abandoned ghost town. High Sierra colorful aspen and pine forest trails, lakes, meadows, creek crossings, annoying rocks, but an overall great balance of paved and dirt roads, trails and rugged 4x4 routes each day. You’ll ride sandy granite single track from South Shore Tahoe up to 8,000 feet overlooking all of Lake Tahoe. We’ll stay at a lakeside casino lodge, hotel/motels. 3 days of great riding, fun entertainment. Giveaways at dinner. This ride is designed for average experienced dual sport trailriders. It has challenging options but nothing killer and some easier, shorter bypass options for less experienced riders or anyone, but not ADVs. It’s all on the same GPS download and roll chart each rider gets for each day. Full route averages 120 miles per day, but Sunday has the option to ride just a half day.

Limited to 75 riders

Ride is free; your reservation sign-up cost is not payment for the ride. It is your advance payment for these amenities that ACT pays for you:  Your share of our group buffet dinner, lunches, T-SHIRT, gear transport each day, 3-days parking, GPS track, unique ACT roll charts, etc. 


OCT 19 & 20                                                                BLUE MTN RIDE

Text Box: 2 different 1-day rides for dual sport or non-plated bike routes each day. Start/finish each day from motel or trailhead campground. Its mostly all unique, old school, deep woods trails for good riders. Don’t have to be fast, that doesn’t matter but trail experience does. Made changes to last year’s route so no one has to ride “AA” option and we’ll bypass other trails so no one must ride any killer stuff. About 75 miles each day.  No one has this much riding, this good in this area of the Stanislaus Nat’l  Forest.  Lodging info and directions are emailed only after you sign-up.



MORE DETAILS about lodging, locations, routes, etc are sent to you AFTER you sign-up for a ride.
