Auburn Bike Works' skilled mechanics prepare bicycles for a season of smooth cement sailing with a deluxe bike tune-up. One of these two-wheeler techies begins by making adjustments to brackets, headsets, and hubs before dialing in the derailleur gears. They'll also check and adjust brake cables to ensure riders can stop safely and quickly, potentially preventing injury and head-on collisions with road-crossing dimes. Afterward, wheel truing and chain lubrication settle the nerves of wobbly wheels and keep links from locking up. Cycles are then washed, dried, and released into the custody of their responsible owners to ride, perform tricks, or train for velocipede rodeos.

The Ridge Golf Course and Event Center's 6,734-yard course—designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr.—stretches across wide-open, natural expanses, and up and over rippling foothills to reveal breath-taking views. The 18-hole, par 71 course offers challenges for golfers of all levels, daring them to evade the 48 bunkers, water hazards, and oak trees that have been known to hit balls back. Some holes are especially tricky, for instance, on hole 7, an uphill fairway precedes a 26-yard-deep rolling green, prompting golfers to pull their three-wood instead of their driver. But as Greg French—retired director of Golf at The Ridge—said, "It doesn't have to be a difficult course," according to their website. Each hole contains four sets of tees, enabling new players to set up closer, less-difficult shots.

When they're not testing their mettle on the course, players can settle disputes with their empty stomachs at the club’s bar and grill, where cooks grill burgers and sizzle up hot sandwiches.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,734 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 72.2 from the back tees * Course slope of 137 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Mother Lode River Center sits amid tall oak trees on a 19-acre plot of Sierra wilderness. Also adding to the site's natural majesty is a half-mile stretch of land on the American River's south fork. When guests arrive here, staff members welcome them with an open embrace and an encouraging smile, pointing the way along indigenous river rock pathways to the many camp activities and accommodations. With its perch on the American River, it's no surprise that the center's marquee activity is its whitewater rafting, which the center has been practicing for four decades.

Even with all the outdoor creature comforts that await guests?a commercial kitchen, modern showers, "glamour" camping?Mother Lode maintains a steadfast commitment to education and wildlife. A river science program acquaints students with the local riparian environment, and the gold rush/Native American history program shows youngsters what life would have been like here many years ago. The center also prides itself as a beacon of environmental stewardship, engaging in sustainable practices such as solar power, organic gardening, and yodeling to produce energy.

In 1988, the owners of a ramshackle golf course put it up for sale, taking out a small advertisement in the San Francisco Chronicle. But where others saw a lost cause, Gordon Morrice saw an opportunity. He quickly bought the course and set to improving it, clearing the rocks and trees littering the fairways, planting new trees, and adding concrete paths to keep wild carts from burrowing into the grass. Over two decades, Morrice and his family transformed Black Oak Golf Course into a facility worthy of a country club, with tiered poa annua greens highlighted by the signature fourth hole?a 131-yard par 3 featuring a dramatic tee shot over water. Along with a regular maintenance staff, at least one member of Morrice's family oversees the course on any given day, retaining a level of personal attention that keeps it from shriveling into a mini-golf course like so many before it.

Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole course with a driving range and practice greens * Total length of 3,164 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.4 from the back tees * Course slope of 128 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole
