    large amount of great mountain riding right above Pasadena in the SanGabriels.
    Technical, exposed rocky descents, long fire road climbs.... Unfortunately most is closed right now due to last Fall's fire but hopefully opening up later this year????
    PM me when you get into town, I live at the base of Mt Lowe, just above pasadena.
    search JPL, el Prieto, brown mountain, Merrils, sunset ridge, Chantry Flats, lower winter creek, sturdavont trail, cherry canyon.
    Intense 6.6..... Demo 9.

    Hey, welcome in advance. Pasadena and Altadena have some of the best local riding in SoCal, certainly the best in LA. Unfortunately, you missed the pre-burn sweetness of the San Gabriel range, but lots of stuff is unburned and still open, with many post-burn areas set to reopen late in the year. You're welcome to PM me when you're in town; looks like I live not far from Matthew.

    BTW, if you've got a road bike too, you'll find some seriously world-class mountain road riding in Malibu, which isn't far.

    As a stoke photo, here's a shot from March 2006, on a ride out my front door.

    You'll also have the Santa Monica mtn range to romp around on. Great rails there, too.

    I sometimes use GeoLadders for trail info...
