We rented awesome bikes from Yuba Expeditions and those fabulous bikes did for my mountain biking what shaped skis did for my skiing. I was just a little more awesome. Its a great long ride with challenges for everyone. I feel no shame for walking the parts that looked scary to me. We had the trails after a little rain... More

Just rode it this past weekend. Started in Sierra City and rode the climb and downhill back to Downieville. If you are a mountain biker you need to ride these trails - some of the best in the world. If you do not want to climb that much you can catch a shuttle in town for about $20. I flatted... More

Came here for a weekend riding trip and was really blown away with the place. Quaint town set along the Yuba river and very MTB centered. Downieville Outfitters has friendly staff that will orient you to the area and offer a great shuttle service to allow for a 2.5 hour downhill ride. Gorgeous views of the Sierras, fantastic downhill riding... More

The operation was very well organized (Downieville Outfitters). The shuttle is the way to go, and the trails are endless.

This is a great bike ride, alot of elevation changes and a challenging course. It only serve on the support team for a friend of mine, I'm to old to give this a try and it is best to be in good condition to attempt this one.

Incredible world-class downhill run with multiple variations. The standard course is Sunnyside, Butcher, Third and First Divide trails and it is 2.5 hours of hair-raising intensity. Just hold on. Also plenty of outstanding trails nearby. Downieville is a great destination and friendly town well worth the drive. Check out Yuba Expeditions for a bike shuttle to the top of the... More

Attended the Sunday Final and had a blast. Great event to get out with like-minded folks. Charming town and a fun festival feeling. Plan to go every year.
