Historic Site
“Great spot to catch a shuttle to the world famous Downieville Downhill mountain bike ride. Check their website for latest departure times. They also have a decent cafe inside which is great for grabbing a bite to eat before heading to the top of the mountain.”

Locality
“This is an adorable tiny mining town that does not get enough attention. There is a small museum a couple of restaurants and small town bars, many have life size art/people, outside on the pavement. This town was built on the convergence of the Downie and Yuba rivers and the drive out is very scenic.”

Bicycle Store
“Local non-profit that provides shuttles to the Downieville Downhill drop-off point. Also our preferred bike shop for any service needs as they have well-trained mechanics that seem to be able to accommodate same-day repairs relatively easily. Super friendly shop team, and they also sell sweet Downieville swag!”
