    A fair amount of decent riding in the area. What trails have you ridden so far?

    Any chance you ride at night?

    Castaic has some great single track with not much fire road climbing work.

    Not my Garmin- but you can get an idea of where to start:

    131027 - MtB - Tapia Canyon, Featuring "Kona" & "G-Out" by jesstator at Garmin Connect - Details

    "G Out" and "Kona" are super fun.

    Head to Simi and ride the Chumash/Hummingbird loop. It's kinda short but real sweet.

    How is Tapia Cyn after the bit of rain we had today? Thinking of heading out there tomorrow.

    This is one of my after work rides, but you don't need to do all that pavement riding. There's a dirt connecter labeled here as "Jerusalem Road".

    For extra credit, start up Johnson's Motorway, then hook up with the above loop in the middle. Up Johnson's, across Rocky Peak, down Hummingbird (don't take the cutouts!!), Jerusalem Road, up Chumash, across RP to Johnson's and back down. HB and Johnson's are super fun downhill.
