    You'll be bored on backbone. You and Yeggsfab need to shuttle Jedi a few times.

    Jedi parallels sullivan ridge fire road. Its the closest thing to a DH run in the area. Berms, a few jumps, etc. Short but fun . . .

    Gonna take the SS out on Thursday afternoon, starting from Ridge Park around 4:15 for some fun in ElMo/Laguna Coast.
    Why?

    Not that I'm aware of. The Jedi/Hulda crooks trail on Geoladders is different than this. It basically parallels the Sullivan Ridge fire road.

    Shuttle!?! You gotta earn those descents, man!

    I plan to be in that area this weekend, but I don't want to shuttle anything. I need to get my climbing lungs back.

    that's why i said "if possible"...

    i have a 1 x 9 dh bike... i like to shuttle as much as i can... but i'll ride up no problem depending on how much...

    I'm only kidding . . . I'm in terrible shape right now and struggle on the climbs even with a granny gear. As a wise rider recently pointed out . . . every turn of the crank makes is a step in the right direction.

    I think Sullivan ridge is ~ 4 miles. Not sure on that though. One possibility that I have never done is to ride sullivan up to J-Drop, head into the canyon, ride the canyon out to mulholland and then hit Jedi back down. That might be kinda fun . . . especially if we throw bent arrow into the mix up top.

    im down for a ride this weekend. I usually go in the mornings while the fog is still out. I try to avoid the sun as much as possible. I got too dark this summer. DH is fun but I also like to work my way up. its feels rewarding when you get to the top then descend down.

    Sounds good to me except for that fog part . . . . I don't usually get out until around 8:30 - 9:00ish.

    I can hold off until 830. The morning fog isnt that bad it just blocks out most of the sun. it usually clears up about 10.

    Looking for someone to ride Monday-Wednesday weekly.
    I ride usually 2-3 times a week.
    I live in Lake Elsinore: between Riverside and Temecula
    I'd like to do a Big Bear trip before it gets cold too.
    Anyway, lmk if our schedules match.
