Come on out and join in the fun! TVTMA is hosting the Annual Chili Ride.
This year the Chili Ride will be held in the Oreana/Grandview area -- specifically in the Birch Creek Wash for those of you in the know. Directions are posted below. Weather forecast is sunny with a 100% chance of fun. Come out early to camp on Friday -- folks should be arriving late afternoon into the evening.
Saturday at 10:00 am we will have two (2) rides. The first will cater to the less experienced riders and should be about 30 miles in length and cover moderate terrain rideable by all. The second ride will cater to the more advanced rider and will probably be around 50-60 miles and will throw in some more challenging terrain.
Sunday at 10:00 am we will have Two (2) rides again. The first will be a kids ride. The second will be an all hands Chili Ride -- big group, slower pace -- lots of fun and pictures.
We will also mark out a beginner kids type course so the kids can follow some ribbon on a safe and accessible course.
As always, TVTMA will have campfires in the evening -- please bring along firewood if you have it!
Hope to see you all there!!
Here is a Google Map link to the location, known to many as the Oreana Wash -http://goo.gl/maps/ABqUW
Birch Creek wash is about 25.5 miles from the town of Murphy.
Start out by driving to Murphy from the Nampa/Boise area via highway ID-78. Then continue traveling southeast on ID-78 towards Grandview and go 13.4 miles to the Oreana turn off.
Turn right onto the Oreana Loop Road/Oreana Road and continue to follow Oreana Loop Road for 7.05 miles. The road will start out South and then veers Eastward.
Turn right onto the Castle Creek Road/Poison Creek Cutoff dirt road and go 5 miles to the Birch Creek wash. There you'll see the TVTMA sign. (Castle Creek Road is 0.3 miles past Castle Creek Cutoff South; If you reach Wolff Rd you've gone about 3.1 miles too far)
