I'm pretty sure I have your ride report bookmarked from that ride, along with about 1000 others It's a neat area, I'd love to explore it more and get up to California Hotsprings, but fires, smoke and closures. Hopefully the air will be better tomorrow.

The unrealistic plan for today, was to take Breckenridge Rd, cut in at Democrat Rd (cow flat rd) and take dirt to the Kern river, but of course Democrat Rd was closed. A moment about Breckenridge Rd, it's awesome! It's goaty, tight and twisty, has loads of gravel and sand everywhere and tons of cows and other wildlife, but it's a great road. And the dirt potential seems great, once the forests open back up, lots of forest roads up there. I even glimpsed blue sky at the top. So I continued on Breckenridge to Havilah and onto Bodfish, where I connected with Old Kern River Rd (another neat road, but only like 15 miles long before it connects with 178). Took a quick dip in the Kern River and finally found dirt in....Bakersfield. The very east side of Bakersfield has tons of homemade trails, hill climbs and jumps. It's like an OHV park, except with oil wells, lots of illegal dumping and broken glass everywhere
