    Coming in from Austin, Tx. Good Place to Ride in LA/Pasadena Area?

    Will be in town for the BCS Game on the 7th. Would like to sneak in a ride before the game on Thursday or potentially Wed.

    What suggestions for the Pasadena/LA area?

    LBS to rent from?

    We are both fairly aggresssive "all-mountain" "light freeride" riders. We ride Canfield One & Knolly Delirium T

    Thanks

    When you are 6'2 240, not so much. also ride outside of the state as well. just never cali..yet.

    Its the hill country with rocky ledges and rock gardens. technical climbing and short techy downhill runs.

    Keep'em coming! I wonder if the 'Horns should even show up. This Alabama team is great. We dont have a shot, just an excuse for me to go to Cali.........

    We will see, but I like our chances playing at our home away from home.
