    I saw a sticker that said "MountainBike Mafia" on the back of a truck at Fullerton one day. Maybe that's a team with some members here?

    I never heard of that but I'm down to start one!!

    Maybe just a group of guys or girls who ride every weekend....I'm totally for it!

    Would be a awesome of meeting new riders and finding new trails.

    Anyone else in the OC down for this??

    Count me in

    I'm in Yorba Linda.

    A couple friends and I ride the Fullerton loop Saturday mornings around 7:30 am.
    I ride Chino Hills during the week at lunch time (usually around 12-13 miles).

    I'd love to be able to hook up with a group and try new trails.

    I think I can make it. What is cost for parking? Where is everyone going to meet?

    I'd classify myself as a good intermediate rider.

    I'd be up for it but I work on Saturdays I usually ride Sunday mornings with Bdee. I'll say this about El Moro.....I rode there about a week and a half ago and the conditions are terrible on the singletrack....very sandy and loose. On top of that they are charging $10 for parking now which is ludicrous (but avoidable with some "recycling"). If you head over into Laguna Coast Wilderness park adjacent to El Moro you can make a fun little side loop to ad a good downhill singletrack (Old Emerald)....but then you have a mile long uphill climb to get back into El Moro. If you know where the good singletrack is around there then El Moro is ok, but Aliso/Wood Canyon is far better.

    If any of you guys want to hook up for a Sunday morning ride sometime let me know.

    I can make it most Saturdays, but this Saturday I have to work. Maybe someone could make up an email list and notify us of planned rides.

    I"m down for this, i live in Long Beach, belmont shore area, so I'm close to "the OC". Anyhow, I would have to say that I wouldn't be down for Fullerton Loop, I'd rather ride elsewhere, for me, its not worth the drive.

    Like FXrob said, El Moro is pretty haggard right now, and it is mainly fireroad with some pretty cool singletracks that are a little more less known. I work in Newport, so, tonight after work i am going to hit el moro around 6:15 or so.

    As far as the weekends go, FXrob and I usually ride sunday mornings, I'm down for a saturday morning ride this week though. I'll email "aztec" and get in on this group ride. My vote would have to be for Aliso/Woods over El Moro for this saturday's ride.

    I'm in Yorba Linda and willing to drive to the south to meet up. I have no preference as to which area to ride.
    What mileage are we looking at here?

    Actually...

    ...that radless ride could be a waste.

    I think most of the regulars are going to be at the 12 hour in big bear. I would probably wait until the next friday..the 20th. There definitely won't be any BOB trailers this friday night, so food and drinks will be lacking in a big way.

    But, come on out friday the 20th, 5:45 ride time. Bring food and drink.

    Hope you don't mind if an old fart tags along.
    Never been to Aliso Woods. Are there any directions? Is there a charge to park?
    What is the duration and mileage you are thinking about?
    Do I sound like a clueless idiot or what. Don't answer that.

    I'm driving a black Highlander with a silver Epic hanging off the back.

    Its 2 or 3 bucks to park in the lot, or you can park free on the street, street parking usually fills up quickly on the weekends.

    I was wondering what trails we are planning on doing. When I go, i usually ride the main fireroad from the bottom, hang a left and hop on the Coyote singletrack, back out to the fireroad, up to Cholla, up Cholla then down Lynx, back on the fireroad up to Cholla again, up Cholla to Rock-It, down Rock-it, hop back onto Coyote to the main fireroad, hang a right and hop on Dripping Cave, up and over Dripping Cave back to the main fireroad and back out to the truck. This ride is typically 14 or 15 miles.

    Anyone have any other suggestions? ( i hate mathis, it is rather steep and boring )

    Directions

    Directions from LA 5 FWY exit Alicia Pkwy make a right go down about 5 miles pass Aliso Creek intersection make your first right and you will see the main entrance on the left hand side where there is a dirt parking lot.

    Directions from San Diego 5 FWY exit Alicia Pkwy make a left go down about 5 miles pass Aliso Creek intersection make your first right and you will see the main entrance on the left hand side where there is a dirt parking lot.

    This will be about a 10-12 mile ride.

    We usually park next to Arby's, in between Arby's and Washington mutual in the spots that face Portola.

    Well lets just say I've been off the bike for a couple years and out of sports entirely and need to get back in shape. I was in Big Bear this weekend and fell back in love. I have time in the morning on mondays wednesdays and friedays and I'm going to try to ride aliso at least once week with a goal of 3 times. starting off easy and picking it up. gotta work myself back into it. I'm totally down to ride with people if anyone wants to meet up, cause at the moment I think I'll be riding alone.

    PS cool to see fullerton riders, I used to go to CSUF as a ME major, back at Saddleback now though, it wasn't my thing.

    PSS, Just noticed cappykid's post, thats fawkin early but I'll try to make it to some of those. I drive a lifted red JEep Grand Cherokee and have a blue and chrome SC Bullit, so keep an eye out

    Team Zoom

    Hey guys,

    My buddies and I ride every weekend at various trails. Just this past weekend we were at Turnbull Canyon. But our home trail is Fullerton Loop.
    We have a group site on Yahoo that we all subscribe to keep us informed of all the rides and events we're doing.
    We've been rider for over a year now and we're out to have fun. A few of the guys have done the Rosarito Ensanada Road trip in Mexico just this past May and I think they are doing it again this month.

    Come check it out go to the link and join, we're always looking for people to ride with.

    A friend of mine and I have been thinking about starting a mtb club in socal based around OC/north OC.

    Club will be mostly for fun and meeting new people, mainly aimed towards the intermediate crowd. I would be making the website which would include a calender, section for rides (weekly/road trip/etc), forums/message boards, maintenance days, media section (pics + vids(?)), rider profiles(?). Maybe trail descriptions and photos of trails that the group rides a lot.

    I have a list of possible names that I am debating on and have sketched some possible layouts for the site's design.

    Here's the tentative purpose/mission statement:
    The ____(name to be determined)___ club will seek to encourage mountain biking in southern california and to strengthen and unify the southern california mountain biker community. The club will promote mountain biking as a lifestyle and method of having fun, increasing fitness, and sharing good times with good friends.


    Who would be interested? My schedule is pretty busy this month, so a website would be completed sometime next month (although riding can start asap) if we decide to go ahead an do this.

    IM me on aim at LBmtb if you wanna talk about this. We can discuss the posisble names and such. Don't wanna post that up here so that no one registers the domain name and charges me $$ for it.
