Ride the course that is used for the Bidwell Bump XC race. Start at 5 mile and head up North Rim Trail to B trail. At the bottom of B trail, follow the dirt road out to the end. Carefully cross the very cold Big Chico Creek and climb up the difficult Ten Mile House Trail. Once you reach Guardians, follow it all the way down continuing on Lower Annie B Trail. The race usually ends at the end of Annie B, but to complete the loop continue out to the pavement and follow it around a couple hundred yards back to 5 mile.
