    Thinking of doing Noble Canyon Wednesday morning. Probably going to climb the access road from the bottom trailhead and go down it. Not much of a downhiller, so I'm slow on the way down. Really don't want to do it alone, but I will. I figure I'll be there by 7 A.M.

    Planning on riding San Juan while visiting from Phx over 4th of July weekend. Can ride July 5th or 6th, or both! Let me know if anyone wants to join, it'd be my first time riding San Juan. Rode Noble Canyon (grind up access rd, bomb down trail) solo on my last trip out thataways from Phx. I'd rate Noble Canyon a 6/10 for difficulty compared to what I enjoy riding in Phx area. Other ride suggestions welcome, prefer to ride in the morning ~8. Thanks SoCal!

    Hi everyone

    I'll be riding tomorrow morning before work over in Caballero Canyon. Planning to start at 6:15AM. I will be climbing caballero, descending Hectic, back up Cab , down Cookies, back up Cab, down Cab. I will probably do the upper halfs of these routes too off farmers fire road. PM me if you want to meet. Would be nice to ride with others for once!

    Hi everyone:

    I'm visiting Ventura (via PHX AZ) for the next week (7/5 to 7/12) and would love to hook up with someone for some singletrack bliss and buy someone a large Strawberry Quick afterward.

    Available to ride any day/any time on any type of terrain/distance (will be riding a Santa Cruz Solo 1x-11). PM me if you're interested.

    And if you're ever in the PHX area, let me know and I'd be happy to loan you a bike and introduce you to some of our best local trails.

    I have ridden two trails sorda close to Ontario. The first is Monroe Truck Trail: old truck trail turned singletrack that follows a beautiful creak bed before traversing a canyon wall to reach the ridge. Once you make the ridge you can continue up (no shade), Go down Mystic Canyon (non-technical, but steep and loose with moderate exposure) or go back down Monroe (super fast and flowy). This ride starts @ the base of Glendale Mountain Road.

    The other is El Prieto: a 4 mile climb up old fire road, followed by very technical and at time very exposed downhill through El Prieto Canyon. Very fun, but the downhill can kill you if you lose concentration. This one starts on a bluff just above NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Directions to either can be found on line.

    Have fun!

    That's a tough one to find yourself. Easier with a guide. When you thinking of riding?

    LOL, a buddy and I were going to do it today, but since neither of us had directions, we rode Aliso woods instead, Rock it and Lynx. Maybe next Friday. BTW, nice shot of "Just Outstanding" in your avatar.

    Part of Sui got torn up and sabotaged by an angry hiker. You might want to see what the conditions are like before you make the drive.

    I can ride Friday around 6. Or Saturday.

    JO is the shizz! Haven't been up there since the fire though. Any idea how it is?

    It is the shizz! I haven't been up there since the Shuttle Fest last year and I only did Friday Cannell then so I haven't done JO since the previous year. I might be able to go to Suicide then. That's a little earlier than I usually go, but I can probably pull it off. lemme check with a couple of my buds to see if they can go then too and I'll let u know what's up.

    All things considered, I doubt it would have been the best it could be for you if we would have tried.

    You have a couple of options...you can HAB up a tough climb with a DH bike, or ride it with your AM bike (~4mi including Sui). Or you can do a medium length ride (~9mi) or a super fun 2 1/2 hour 18 mile ride. If you can ride early Saturday am, I'd recommend the latter, given your travel distance..

    Hmm, well I'd be doing it on my Uzzi which I can ride up or down on. And I'd either do the medium or long route. I just need to figure out if Saturday is doable. The wife usually has plans on Sat so I'm home with the kids.

    I recently moved to Orange County and am looking for some people to ride with. I do some trail riding and a little DH. I typically ride local trails on the weekends, and also like taking bike trips occasionally up to Northstar, Mammoth, or Tahoe.

    To give you an idea of the trails I have been on and like, I have ridden at Aliso Woods, The Luge, The Chutes, Sullivan Canyon, Pt. Mugu, and Pinos.

    Getting out on the trails is something I do every weekend, and it would be great to have some company.

    I am riding aliso woods tomorrow.
    Hopefully from 7am to 10-11.
    I am saying "hopefully" because I spent the whole day out today and the heat was just too much.
    Anyway, if you want to join me, let me know.

    Me too. While I enjoyed our ride today, I was suffering badly. I'm sure it was clear since I did all that HAB up the steep stuff.

    I am really interested in climbing/descending Johnson. If I weren't taking the girls to the Fair tomorrow, I might join in again or try Johnson myself.

    Good, aside from both of us going otb at different points. I broke my front brake lever, but we were both okay. EatsDirt is a really good rider and an even nicer guy.

    Cools down? You mean like....November?

    Geez!

    I'm down for a weekend morning or late afternoon (weekdays are good after like 5:30) on a day where the high is 90 or so. Should be in the low 80's during those times. Keep an eye out for a day like that...

    Rode Bonelli this morning but even though I got a fairly early start, it was pretty hot. High today 108 at my house. I'm thinking of doing Wrightwood next Sunday a week from today. Anyone interested?
    Here is today's ride. Hawg I'm also planning on Cannell in late October if you are interested again.

    The creek bed is dry for the first time that I have ever seen before. Just like everywhere else, the trail is really dry, loose, and super dusty. I'd call it fair condition, so go hit it.

    Bring a bucket of water, a sponge, and a bar of soap to clean your dirt coating off after you ride EP if you go there.
