    La Tuna Cyn: Looking for a Winter night riding partner

    Anyone interested in climbing up La Tuna at least once a week, every week (weather permitting) in the evening (night ride) through the Winter? I generally climb La Tuna and drop down Whiting Woods. Looking to climb La Tuna with somebody even if you just want to turn around and go back down once we reach the top while I continue on toward Whiting Woods. I can meet at La Tuna at approx 5:45-6:00pm. on any day between Mon-Thurs.

    There is a really nice single track up there too. You need to ride North on the Verdugo Motor way about 3/4 of a mile and the single track will drop of the right side of the road and pop out on La Tuna about a mile down the hill from the parking lot.

    I leave from my home which happens to be near the bottom of Whiting Woods fire road. I'm doing my local workout loop regardless, just hope someone can accompany me through the uphill section (La Tuna) at least. Don't wanna get bagged by a big cat on the slow climb in the dark. There's safety in numbers. Not afraid so much about it while blasting down hill (Whiting Woods). If that lion can catch me going down hill, I'm his, no last requests.

    Right on. I live in Granada Hills, work in Moorpark. I could probably hit it every other or every 3rd, but it'd be hard to get out every week. Usually I'll hit Las Llajas, Chumash, Johnson's, or Neon on the way home. Wednesday is a possibility for me, though...

    I'm down, Mon-Thurs. Can you do 6:30-7 Wed? I get home around 6p... I only have 1 handlebar light for now, thinking of picking up a headlight too.
