    New question here. MTBR So Cal forums group ride

    Anyone interested in getting together for a forum ride?

    We are kind of spread out but maybe somewhere centrally located in LA county?

    I don't know any of the trails in LA or even if that is a good choice (I'm in Ventura county) but I'm down to drive for an hour or two to hang out with you all. Perhaps there is a nearby place we could all procure a fermented beverage after this ride.

    Thoughts?

    I'm way down San Dieggo way, but I might be tempted by a emptybeer-discount day at Big Bear, that would be cool. Maybe the owners could work some kinda deal for us all.

    I second that motion, unless we decide on a mass group night-ride. Just imagine the dust.....

    That's what so nice about Durango and Crested Butte, CO in the summer.... Monsoon rains, while humid, cause rain and soak the trails and keep the dust to a minimum.

    Hopefully, TurtleHawg, you can experience new dirt out of state that has fun, and great aesthetics where you ride. CO is one of those states. It has the goods, in spades.

    Really fun idea; not-so-fun timing.

    I'm with Boyo–this time of year I think elevation and further from equator. SoCal is awesome starting late October IMO, but now riding here more to keep sane than plunder great conditions. We're on the cusp of a CO mission to get some of the goods Boyo mentions.

    Hope to hook up later...

    Buncha fair weather riders....

    MichaelScott I'd be down for something in the Conejo or Simi areas.

    Heat isnt really an issue in Sycamore Canyon, although I try and stay away during the weekends due to the "Popularity".

    Cheeseboro is a good summer option too due to the shaded climb up the canyon.

    LMK!

    Fair weather LOL. I ride Santa Anas all year and see no one some days. If I'm gonna load up my gear and burn gas, it's gonna be for the prime ****, not regional dust. Cheers...

    Count me in. I don't mind the heat, and as long as it was an earlier start we could get the climbing done before it's too hot.

    It's kind of short (13 or 14 miles) for a group ride, IMO.

    We need an "all dayer" for the group ride...

    Naw I was messing with ya because that is where we are heading Friday. For a ride of this Scope, I vote SART. Truly epic riding for So-Cal, as long as you want it to be, enough elevation to help with the heat, and a great meet spot. IMHO, some of the best riding So-Cal has to offer. Or what about San Juan trail? Also world-class riding!

    I'm not that familiar with the trails in the LA area so I could not make a poll unless someone offered a list- SART looks totally cool though. Anyone familiar enough to lead it?

    I've never set foot nor wheel on it. Therefore, I think I would be the PERFECT leader!

    Lmao...on a related note I've always wondered if when it rains, does SART then turn into SHART?

    Backbone. Kanan to Circle X and back. ~30 miles round trip. Not an easy ride, but not super challenging either. Spectacular views to say the least and then there's Rustic Canyon General Store for post-ride eats/drinks.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    SART is perfect for a big group ride and trmn8er knows the way through there.
