The Cache Creek Ridge Ride is hosted by the Stalley family on BLM lands west of the town of Williams. It is a scenic ride through golden oats, green oak trees, and rippling creeks. The ride was established in 2009 and has been held each year since. (There was no ride in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.) There are some very important groups who assist with the ride each year. Rick Littlefield and his team of AMAZING radio operators have ensured the health and safety of our riders each year. There is also great support from local first responders with representatives from Williams Fire, Yoche Dehe, and Cal Fire on site each year. This ride would not be possible without the vision and support of the BLM Ukiah office. We would like to publicly recognize all the support we get from these organizations. 

There are beautiful vistas of the surrounding mountains as well as Cache Creek and Bear Creek below. There are creek crossings as well as water troughs along the way. Temperatures at CCRR can run from the low 70's to the low 100's.
