    Coming down from Norcal to ride need help!

    As the title says I will be coming down from Sacramento and staying staying in wonderful Pismo beach with the entire family. To stay sane I will be needing a good mt bike ride. I am wondering what type of trails you guys have and where I should ride. I have heard of Montana Del Oro but have never ridden it, is that better with a hardtail or FS. Since I am staying in Pismo is there a good challenging ride that starts on that side of Montana Del Oro. It looks like most trails are on the other side of the park.. I would love to find a ride of about 20-30 miles with 3000 feet of climbing. Thanks for any help!

    Check out the rides in SLO - West Cuesta Ridge, Irish Hills, Madonna / Rock Garden, etc. You might have to string together more than one network to get 30 miles.

    There are some maps and info here:

    MdO is great too, but slightly farther to drive for you. I would bring the full suspension bike.
