    If you can get a shuttle ride to Pinyon Pines (top), do the epic!
    In my opinion, it just might be the best ride in southern California. Bring leg armor because there's lots of sharp pokey plants hanging over the air space of the trail. Most people meet up at Vons (4733 East Palm Canyon Drive) around 7:00-8:00 am to organize shuttles.

    Check Mountain Bike Bill for route info for the palm canyon epic and other rides in the area.

    Bring your all mountain tires. The trails haven't seen rain in way too long. They are loose and dusty. We need rain!

    I'm local and will be riding Sunday. Palm Canyon is a possibility -- definitely riding somewhere around the desert. Message me if interested in riding.
