Let me introduce myself. I'm Seth and I just moved from the Bay Area (Berkeley) to Irvine this past week due to work and looking to learn about the mountain biking trails around Orange County. I'm a long time MTBR member but haven't been too active on the NorCal board for some time.
A little more about myself. I'm a civil engineer that designs roadways for a medium size firm. I transferred offices since the northern california market is a bit slow at the moment and we wanted to see how we would like SoCal. If we hate it, we can move back
I started racing XC full time in 2009 and moved my way up to Cat 1 last year. My season didn't end very well, I crashed and smashed my face, knee and broke my thumb in September, so I decided to take 2013 off from racing and just ride (orthodontia is expensive!)
Anyway, I was down here for a 2 months before we moved, staying at a hotel so I only brought my road & commuter bike but I saw a lot of mountain bikers while biking up Santiango Canyon and looked like I passed several trailheads.
That being said, anyone interested in a early weekend ride, like 8am for a couple hours? Seems like theres some trailheads off Portola Pkwy or Santiago Canyon? I could use a guide, I'm not too concerned with pace, slow or medium, whatever, since I haven't been on the mountain bike since my spill in September, might be a little rusty.
