At a Glance
Master, why do we ride this DH? Ah, close
your eyes and look inside your mind, Grasshopper. Can you not
sense the movement of wheels on smooth, contoured pavement as
you leave the mundane, Sacramento-induced bustle of Nevada City
and wind sharply down to and back up from the South Yuba River?
With training and self-discipline – or by taking one of the
bypass TEs – you can overcome your impatience with the
straightaway through the long suburb of North San Juan. Whatever
path you take, your mind will quiet once you enter the stillness
of the Tahoe National Forest. Mile after mile of sublime rivers,
trees, mountains and corners prepare you for the road’s “Dead
Man’s Curves” – a steep, tightly essing culmination that drops
steeply off the Yuba Pass and down to a simple farming community
in the Sierra Valley. Finished meditating? Snatch this chain
lube from my hand; it will be time for you to go.

'Sure, Pavement and Engineering are a little suspect in places, but I loved this DH!! A great ride, very remote near the Yuba Pass, busier on the south 1/2. On my top 10 ANYWHERE!!' --Paul Mackie
'Rode this after connecting from DH7. This is one of our favorites (I learned about DH NorCal during a rest stop here last year). Great road and scenery.' --Rick Brown
