    San Diego this week

    I'm heading to San Diego this week and I'm planning to get some warm weather trail riding in (from Illinois). Two questions. Where should I spend my three available days riding? Anyone planning to ride wed thurs or Friday? It would be great to find someone to ride with.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    Where are you staying and how far are you able to travel?

    Manchester Hyatt i believe. Tagging along with my wife for a convention. I have a rental car though so I can get just about anywhere within reason.

    If you want to ride with some San Diego folks there are two regional sites that will get you a higher response. Go to either

    Dirt Treaders Mountain Biking Community • Portal

    or

    San Diego Mountain Biking Association • Index page

    You should be able to find all sorts of folks to ride with. It is always more fun if you can have a local show you around.

    Exactly what I thought. It would be a lot more fun with a group or at least someone who knows their way around. Thanks for the heads up on the local sites. I will check them out.

    Check out mountainbikebill.com for details on trails.

    Some suggestions for SD and north county XC trails:

    Mission Trails Regional Park-most of the decent mtbing in the park proper is on the west side, though there is fun ST on the east side north of hwy 52.

    Los Penasquitos Canyon-fire road and ST with options for much longer rides by linking to Black Mtn and Lusardi Canyon.

    My favorites in north county are La Costa, Elfin Forest and Lake Calavera.

    Farther away are the 'must do' trails, the San Juan Trail up in Orange County and Noble Canyon/Big Laguna east of SD (snow on the ground right now at the top)

    Maybe someone else can suggest some south county trails and rental options.

    Sounds good. Packed my bike on the bag last night so I don't think I will need a rental

    So I just landed. I think I will take your advice and try mission trail tomorrow then move to something else for Thursday and Friday.
    Thanks for the advice,

    Noble Canyon the Best

    Noble Canyon is the best ride in San Diego County.

    I have a page on my website featuring many of the best San Diego rides, including directions to the trailhead.

    Sorry Kirk, I got the PM too late. We started at 6 A.M and finished at about 10

    I'll be riding PQ on Friday. I sent you a pm about it. I start early at 7 if you or anyone else would like to join me.
