    night rides in SD county?

    Hey, as the daylight is waning and my new lights are charging, I ponder where I can go for an evening/late night ride. I understand that most of the county/state parks (tri-canyon) will be a no-go, because they are not legal and high-risk for tickets. Now, Flightline is not really that legal to start with, so I figure that a night ride there is permissable. Um, other than that, I can think of the stuff out in CNF, ie, BLT and Noble. Any other suggestions out there? I work off of the 78 and reside in PB, so I have my choice from Oceanside/Escondido on down to central....Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Let me know if you are interested in going!

    20-ish mile night ride through the undocumented trails of Penasquitos Canyon. WE ride Wednesday nights at 7:00 starting from Carmel Valley.

    ride follow up

    OK, so the new Sigma Mirage X (revised to 10W by them) was still pretty impressive out at flightline last night. Saw a couple of riders going in, but that was it for the whole ride. It was incredible, a completely different world out there. I even managed to endo and break part of the light mount going up the west side of bridges before the first straight 10' bridge (small stump on the L caught my pedal, down I went). All in all, I think I have a new favorite hobby...
    Thanks for the responses. I will have to work on the power issue before I try and join y'all for one of those 20mi rides. Both the light and myself face endurance constraints that limits power output to about 2 hours.

    Lake Hodges is a popular night ride as well - and Elfin Forest/Mt. Israel works pretty good at night - both offer vigorous rides that can be completed in as little as an hour (if you're worried about your light going out). Besides that - one could ride around the back-side (north) of Daley Ranch - but going in up near Dixon Lake is definitely prohibited (at night).
