    I'm looking to get a weekly night ride started in the Santa Monica's. Say, Wednesday nights with an 8pm start time with a route of up Westridge down Sully's or some similar variation. Sound interesting to any of you??? This should go without saying, but we will need to be courteous to the residents. I'm definitely open to input.

    Definitely like to give that a try at some point. Need to invest in some lights first though..

    Riding again this Wednesday in Laguna Coast/ElMo, starting from Ridge Park around 4.
    Friends don't let friends ride e-"bikes" on dirt.

    Nature is not a sidewalk.

    Is there hilly trails in Griffith or just that flat road ride there?

    I'm only aware of flat roads at the moment, unfortunately.
    other than the brand park trails, where do you ride that isnt a flat road (very)locally?

    Try Cherry Canyon in La Canada/Flintridge and Lower Brown Mtn/El Prieto for fireroad/singletrack rides.

    You can ride on the other side of the Verdugo Mtns on Beaudry, Whiting Woods and La Tuna for more for fireroads and from the top of La Tuna, go West on the ridge road to catch La Tuna singletrack.

    In Tujunga, up Haines Canyon, there's singletrack you can catch if you climb most of the way up the road.

    There's much more if you want to drive a bit: Santa Monica Mtns, San Gabriel Mtns...

    Use this website to find places to ride:

    Quick Cheseboro loop tomorrow morning to build up a T-day appetite . . . leaving West LA around 8:00, hoping to hit dirt by 9:00 a.m. PM if you're interested.

    FYI. Cheseboro needs time to dry out after significant rain. Might still be a bit sticky from Sunday's deluge. If it rains tonight, forget about it. Los Robles is always a good backup plan, though. Handles rain very well, and it's only another 10 minutes or so down the road. Here's a Garmin track for a good quickie loop - Los Padres - Los Robles:
    Los Padres - Los Robles by lamtb65 at Garmin Connect - Details

    Wish I could join you, but I have to cook for six people. Have fun!

    I do a couple nite rides a week since the time change... I love em! Gives you a whole new perspective on your favorite trails. Those drop-offs I was so used to seem a little more ominous in the dark. You'll love it.... I had to buy some long sleeve jerseys though, and sometimes I even pack a thermal in my camelback... Strange how it gets cold when the suns not around.

    Great bike . . . keep it off the pavement

    (I'm looking to get an STI in the near future too . . . as soon as the least on my FXT is up)

    I'd be happy to show you some trails up in the SM mountains. I ride with some good folks on 29ers as well.

    Hawkeye FTW . . . pretty sure I've seen your ride on NASIOC. I am going to hold out until I hear for sure what this "next gen" STI/WRX is . . . if its as potent as the rumors, I'll be waiting for sure. Not too interested in the BRZ though. I need 4 doors.

    And yeah, I pretty much ride every saturday and sunday. I'll hit you up.

    Hey blueibis, join us for the Turtle ride this Saturday at Blackstar, huge ride, very slow paced probably a few hundred riders, perfect time to meet riders. Wife and I will be on a yellow cannondale tandem. I also ride a single bike solo every weekend on a variety of trails, welcome to join me.

    Last I saw there are going to be 100 riders?!!!???
    Thats insane. Where is everyone going to park?
    If I organized that ride I'd charge $5 and have the
    money got to the OC Food Bank or someplace like that.
    Blackstar is nice but not with 100 riders all in your face
    unless it was an organized charity ride IMO

    I ride all over, mostly in the SM mountains on the weekends and hopefully soon during the week with some lights. I ride with a few folks from the boards here and you are welcome to join.

    Our pace is mixed . . . everyone waits for me though on the up hills, but I can hold my own on the downhill

    Pt. Mugu is pretty far for me on a Wednesday. I wouldn't be able to hit dirt until like 8:30-9:00, which is pretty late . . . but if I ever can make it, I'll be sure to let you know!

    A small Wednesday night ride has recently formed and is gaining some traction. We meet at the Sullivan Canyon trailhead (Bayliss & Queensferry) at 7:00 PM. So far it's just been a short 11 mile loop up Westridge and down Sullivan Canyon. If anyone is interested, PM me and I'll point you to where you can keep up with weekly developments.

    Brrrr! Too cold at night for my wimpy, beat up bones, LOL! I'm gonna be doing
    Honolulu X La Crescenta to and through CV Park for a while as soon as I can get back in the saddle. Through the back behind CV Park is about all the "trail riding" I'm gonna be any good for until I am healed up. What a sad world it has been for me. Not being able to ride is like being a race horse kept in the barn 24/7! It SUCKS!!! But I am having fun with my new bike build!!!

    Hmmm...methinks u can do it. I work nights until 9 so when I get home around 945 I take a crap, drink water, get my helmet on and wipe my assss (not in that order) & ride up to the bike lane on Foothill. On the way home there is a donut shop open 24-7. If anyone wants to do this dangerous night ride, let me know and I will spring for a donut. Don't fear riding on the street. Remember what FDR said. "Fear not what you can do for your country, ask what fear can do for you" Cheers and happy whatever.
