    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    I was up there Wednesday and there was still lots of snow. I flew in yesterday from the east coast (typical flight path from the east into Lindbergh) and there appeared to be plenty of snow in the Cuyamacas and Lagunas.

    Mission Trails

    Is still too muddy. I rode Sweetwater yesterday from the bridge out about 1 mile on a suspension test run and it wasn't bad. Sweetwater is usually swampy, but if you head away from the river, it wasn't bad. Like I said, I only went about a mile, I have no idea about the rest of the trails condition.

    I saw a lot of cars with racks parked there today. I live near Sweetwater, so I'll try it tomorrow morning. Thanks!

    I rode Sweetwater from my place in Eastlake to the horse gate and back. The water has done a number to the trails. There is some big time erosion and the trails are rockier than before with big ruts. Wasn't a lot on fun on a rigid SS.

    snow, mud, and all around great ride

    So I was talked into doing Noble this morning, we were going to shuttle it, I know there is a first for everything. We were actually going to do Big Laguna then down Noble, but the snow was a bear to ride in so we opted to just go down. Snow at the top, then mud, lots of mud, then perfect trails. I owe Noble some trail work after ridng in the those swampy conditions.

    On a side note I rode my rigid 96er SS and it handle the rocks perfectly. That big wheel is the ticket!

    Sweetwater was great today. There were only a couple of puddles. Most of the trail survived the rain even with all th fire damage to the ground cover. The winter grass is popping up everywhere. If it doesn't rain hard for a while, the area might survive the fire with very little trail damage. After being so dry for so many years, most of the water was absorbed into the ground.

    Stupid and inconsiderate!

    This is a great example of riders being stupid and inconsiderate.

    Please stay off of upper Noble until it drys out.

    If you must shuttle Noble this week, it would be best to ride Pine Creek road from Penny Pines and drop in at the last road crossing.

    Dude, trashing Upper Noble is bad enough, but then you post your tidbits in lycra on this site? Come on man, have some restraint!
    If not biking, then what?

    I was waiting for Aqua to chime in on this one. I knew he was gonna be peeved. Give the trails a chance to dry out. I have been stuck riding my bike around the bay and beach. The scenery is a bit different but there is plenty of eye candy if you know what i mean. Daley ranch is ok to ride and PQ's north side is ok. Sycamore Canyon is good also.

    OH MY GOD....what a bunch of friken GAPERs/
    What the Fu*k are you guys doing ?
    So much for the perception of SS'r being experience hard-core riders.
    And the cluess act of actually posting photos of it. Are you frken joking?
    These gapers should be banned from the friken sport.
    PATHETIC
    way to F-UP the trails you goons.

    I understand that I am guilty in the court of public opinion. But to my defense I wasn't the only person riding up there. The DH crew was well represented (I counted 6 at one point) and the lot at both trailheads had plenty of cars including a local bike shop van. Between the Hikers, Equestrians, and the bikes that had torn it up well before I came through, it was a mess already. I said I owe the trail some work, I admit when I F up. I'll be the first person up there when the call goes out.

    Is so very,very wrong. Way worse than some newb who is truly ignorant of environmental impact and trail user/ land management relationships. To KNOW better and still proceed to leave your mark on the trail like you have done blatantly screams that you just don't give a sh!t. And as far as your, " but to my defense" BS, you sir, are an ASSHAT.
    But wait, there's more: You posted pictures!

    All right, he screwed up. If he does trail work up there when it dries, sweeps the parking lot, re-stocks the toilet paper and eats some horse meat, he should be forgiven.

    Oh, and gets some baggies.

    Jesus you guys are unrelenting. I was only a very small piece of that puzzle. None of you know really where I rode at and what I did and didn't ride through. Maybe I should be more specific next time.

    If everyone is so concerned with the trail why don't you get off you computer and go hang out at the trailhead giving everyone that rides there crap. I would almost guarantee someone is riding there right now. It is easy to sit at home and give one guy crap.

    If I would have worded my title: A-Holes at Noble, and posted about what others had done you all would have applauded me and ranted about staying of Noble until Aqua gives you all permission to ride. But I am your target and i'll take my beating.

    BTW that is not a pic of me. I laughed at that dude the entire ride.

    The moral of the story don't ride Noble wet, or at least if you do don't post pics and a thread about how *****en it was.
