    Sooooo . . . SoCal is like, this REALLY big place . . . . would help to know where you are.

    There's tons of options though that are well suited for beginning riders.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    If you're in HB I'd suggest Aliso-Woods as a good beginner area.

    Im not far from you in Anaheim. You are welcome to come check out Turnbull canyon with us on the 4th. We will have beginners and 2 of us who are back into it after a 10+ yr break.

    I will also be riding the fullerton loop again this saturday and its a great beginners trail.

    Yeah it has really easy trails as well as some more advanced trails that you can build skills on. Also Crystal Cove (El Morro), and Whiting Ranch are good beginner areas and near you. I ride those areas with a group called VOZ (vozcycling.com), check us out. We're really beginner friendly.

    Anyone in the eastern VC up for a ride today? Done with work at 3:30 - thinking Space Mtn, Lang Ranch, or something in the Moorpark/TO area.

    paseo miramar capri loop

    Starting at 10 am at capri and sunset, up paseo miramar, through the hub, down sullivan ridge.

    It take me three hours at most. I take a small break at the hub, and that's it.
    not a racer's pace, but not a casual ride either. My time demands are high, so not too much hanging around.

    Leaving no later than 10am at capri and sunset!

    I'm confused by your loop . . . I don't understand how you get from Capri and Sunset to riding up Paseo Miramar. Perhaps I don't know where PM is . . .

    I often ride UP sullivan ridge, over Mulholland to the Hub, then DOWN Will Rogers Backbone and back to the car. Its a nice 20+ mile loop with all the climbing on the front end.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Anyone interested in an early AM ride tomorrow in the Santa Monica area? 630-7 start, maybe climb Rustic Canyon or Westridge, descend the Jedi trails or descend Kenter canyon jumps. About 90 minutes RT. PM me if interested.

    Cheers

    Rob

    Anyone want to ride San Juan Trail in Orange County tomorrow morning around 6am. The trail is best when wet so with the small rain tonight tomorrow will be perfect.

    I'd be happy to take you out on Sullivan. PM with when you wanted to ride and we'll figure something out.

    I'm local to the SM area and my regular loop includes sullivan ridge and the canyon. I'd happily show you what I know, but I'm out of town until Monday.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
