    Riding in and around Simi?

    I'm not usually one to post these kinda threads since I'm a huge advocate of keeping stuff on the DL, but...

    I haven't been "home" in SoCal with my bike ever since I've moved up to The Bay for college. I'm debating whether or not I should bring my bike with me when I visit my parents' down in Simi (they live right off the Lost Canyons country club). I've always assumed there were sweet trails in the area, but since I've never had my bike with me, and I'm never there for more than a week at a time, I've never bothered looking/asking.

    I grew up in Oak Park and stayed there until college (at which point, my 'rents sold our grossly over-inflated house...which came about 20 feet to burning down a year later) so I know my way around the area.

    I'd like to keep whatever riding I do around Simi, TO, Westlake (haha..), Agoura, Newbury, etc. I'll be riding my Banshee with a Domain... I don't mind pedaling up so long as the ride down is cool (can't imagine there's anything to shuttle...).

    Drops, doubles, sketch DH, whatever, I'm down.

    PM me if you wanna show me around or know some cool sh!t to ride.

    The North Ranch(website above) guys have one of the more comprehensive trail sections.

    If you're looking for "rogue" trails, I'm not in the know.

    The Backbone trail between Kanan Rd and Corral Canyon is fun trail with some technical sections, but I haven't been on it since the fires. I believe there are some "illegal" downhill trails coming down off of Rocky Peak(as well as the legal Chumash and Hummingbird trails). "Suicide" is another one(starts near Simi Peak), that's supposed to be pretty good, but I've never ridden it.

    Good luck!
