Lake Natoma Overnight Campout and Dinner
Saturday, July 16, 2011 - Sunday, July 17, 2011
(Repeats daily for 1 day(s))

Join Don Bybee of Transpocycle and John Boyer of Edible Pedal on an overnight bicycle camping trip to the group campsite at Negro Bar State Park, on Lake Natoma.  Joining us this trip will be Rick Mahan, renowned Chef/Owner of the The Waterboy restaurant and One Speed Café, to give a camp cooking demonstration and to cook dinner for us.  Beer and wine will be provided with dinner. A self-serve continental breakfast will be provided on Sunday morning.  Also included will be a pre-ride session to discuss additional information about the trip, how to carry your gear, touring bicycles, and other information for those new to touring or who would like to attend the ride.  The ride will be approximately 22 miles each day, predominantly on the American River Bike Trail.  Most of the ride is relatively flat but there a few moderate hills as we pass Nimbus Dam and ride around the north side of the lake.
