    New Weekly Mtn-Bike Training Ride:

    6PM on Thursdays: We have a strong small group of guys that are meeting in the parking lot at the top of Mtn. View Ave in Loma Linda, CA. Goal is to get a decent thurday evening training ride going in order to give riders a venue where they can train hard and learn racing techniques in a challenging setting.

    The course is appx 1 to 1.5 miles long w/ appx 400 ft of climbing per lap. For those of you familiar w/ the area, the course basically goes up the canyon from the parking-lot east to '4-corners' about 1 km up, then left which climbs quickly, then quick descent to the north which puts you on the front ridge along Beaumont Ave. Then along the ridge west to the power-lines, a quick left and screaming straight descent north back down to the canyon which picks up right above where we start.

    If enough riders want to do a specific distance, we can warm-up to the top of the climb slowly, then have 'start/finish' up there. Seems 5 laps is a good distance so far usually taking close to an hour.

    Right now we've got a couple semi-pros, a few roadie cat 1/2's, and novices mixed in.

    Goal is to get 15-20 guys a week. This isn't anything formal, just an opportunity to get out and push it with other riders.

    When: Thursdays 6PM
    Where: Top of Mtn View Ave off I-10 in Loma Linda, bottom parking lot.
