    I'm heading out again this weekend for sure. Definitely riding both days, but not sure where yet.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I'll be in the SD area from March 24-31. I'm from Co, I am bringing my Yeti. I prefer early morning rides so I can do other things during the day while on my trip. I would like to stay within 45 mins of where I'm staying but wouldn't mind driving to that "must do" trail.
    Let me know if you wanna ride.

    Well weather calls for rain sunday and on Saturday I'm riding up Sullivan ridge and back to get in a good spin, but probably won't be hitting any singletrack with this one.

    Yea, I was just looking at the weather report also.. I guess I should take this weekend to set up my new tires tubeless. Maybe we can work something out one of the coming weekends.

    Yep, drizzle in WLA right now (Friday AM), so assuming the WX folk are right and it does not rain until Sat PM / Sun, we'll be riding something in the SM's Sat mid morning. Maybe Sully up / Backbone down into Will Rodgers?

    Look for a Ventana or two and a Knolly.

    Hey everyone -- great forum/community and great thread you've got here, I am looking forward to becoming an active contributor.

    I am a novice MTBer looking for people to ride with in the Thousand Oaks area. I generally ride Los Robles/Rosewood or Wildwood Park area trails on weekdays after work (~6pm) but would be happy to drive out to other trails on the weekends. If any other beginners are interested or anyone is willing to have a beginner tag along please let me know!

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make it out this weekend or next weekend. For the next couple weeks I can only do midweek rides. However, I've subscribed to this thread and will keep an eye on it for upcoming rides!

    I'd love to, but this rain has pretty much made this weekend a "maintenance" weekend. Off to the LBS for parts!!

    ^^ San Diego? I've given some organized beginner lessons before, but I live in San Juan Cap. We could ride the Weedpatch in San Clemente. If it's north OC, then we could ride Laguna Coast/El Moro, Aliso, or Santiago Oaks. I can ride after 4:30 during the week or anytime on weekends. Let me know if that works.

    ^^ I just moved to San Juan a couple months ago, so I'm about 15 minutes from the Weedpatch (most of the features are better than they look!), and I'm about 5 minutes from Las Ramblas (similar but smaller).

    It really helps to have a guide your first few times there. Feel free to PM me if anybody wants a tour.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm returning to mountainbiking after a long hiatus. I haven't ridden since I was in high school in the late 90's.....Just picked up a trek fuel ex 8. I'm located in North county San Diego (Vista), but have friends in OC and Riverside county as well. My work schedule affords me a lot of free time, so I'm always down to ride. I look forward to riding more and learning lots along the way.

    Also beginner/intermediate(?) - not really sure since I mostly ride alone haha. What I do know is I'm sloooow as heck going uphill and I have no qualms about resting/walking on the way up.

    Looks llike no surf this wknd so 90% chance I'll be biking Sat and Sun early morning locally. My go to areas are:
    Sullivan (usually do Canyon up then Ridge down route)
    Mugu Sycamore (usually do up Sycamore fire road>up Ranch Center>down Wood Canyon>(if I still have energy)>back up Sycamore fire road>down Sin Nombre/Two foxes. Also sometimes up Guadalasco and down the backbone.

    I like Chesebro/Sheep Corral? also.

    If the above fits any other riders and are down let me know. I do hit the trails early though as I'm an early AM person. As in like get there around 6-7AM style (used to early AMs from my main hobby/sport - trails are nice and empty at that time too!)

    Sorry for the early start y'all. Hopefully we can meet up some other time for a more "normal" start time ride haha. But I naturally wake up at 5:30am so I like to get going rather than wait tomorrow.

    I plan to be at the Chesebro lot by 7AM. I want to try and make it up to China Flats this time (haven't gone past that look out above Sheep) . Please see my ealier post for my riding level details.

    PM if interested. I'll check it around by 11pm or so. Peace!

    How's it going everyone? Been lurking around the site for a while and finally signed up today. I live in Santa Clarita.
    I'm looking for a riding buddy/buddies to do some trail riding with. Im a newbie/intermediate rider. Basically ride on whatever trails I find in my area. Haven't been on any crazy technical trails yet.

    Also go down to San Fernando Valley quite often to hit some trails. If you're in that area and feel like doing some weekend riding sometime let me know.

    I am planning to spend my summer holidays this year in California, and I was planning to take this opportumity to make a few bike trips in the area of Santa Cruz. I am experienced mountain biker, did several trips in Alps in Europe, as well spend few weeks biking on Colorado trials.

    I will be there totally alone from 7th of July till 12 of July, and I was thinking that maybe I will find over there some local bilers to ride with. Anyone want to co-ride?

    ^^ There are definitely some fun trails in the Santa Cruz area (Demo Forest and Skeggs come to mind), but you'll need to post in the Norcal forum to get some local riders. Have fun!

    East Coast transplant here new to the Oceanside area. Dying to ride, but I don't know any MTBers in the area. Looking for people to ride with in or near Oside/Encinitas. I'm a pretty decent all mountain/xc rider, but I'll need to acclimate myself to these things called hills out here

    No car until september, but I will throw in gas money. Someone PM me, my bike is depressed!

    ^^ I'm in San Juan Capistrano, and there are some really fun trails--the Weedpatch--in San Clemente, probably about 25 minutes from you. Mostly just fun s/t with some steep/bermy sections and a few features. Also, the San Juan Trail is just a little further up the road and is a must do. Pm me when you get a car!

    You know, I'm not 100% sure of the time frame . . . there are a few factors involved, but the goal is around 9:00. PM me with contact info if you're interested. Its a casual ride. No KOM's on this one.

    I'm gonna be in the SD area the weekend of 6/30. I'm looking for a ridin' buddy/group for Nobles Canyon. I've never been there, and would rather ride with others than by myself. Anybody heading out that Sat or Sunday?

    anyone done CANNELL PLUNGE recently? i'd like to head up there for a weekend soon. let me know if any of you would like to...the shuttle is $40, unless there are other options...i rode in Tucson a while back and met some cool people for the Lemmon Drop, was a sweet ride, and a fun group. wondering whether that's possible here, too?

    I thought you did that on purpose out of respect or something. Bust out the cruiser and ride soon.

    I am possibly going to be heading up to Kernville this Sunday for a ride. Nothing too big, just some basic riding with a few friends. None of us are too experienced but we gotta start somewhere!

    Hi, I goggled for mtb tours and found Topanga Creek Bicycles at 1273 N Topanga Canyon Blvd, Topanga, CA 90290. They do rent bikes and it seems almost perfect. I would like to find out if its worth the trip riding Topanga State Park. Has anyone rode there before?

    I'm planning a ride on 7 Jul with several friends. We are probably going to self-shuttle but I want to ride my road bike up to the top then my mountain bike down the trail. Still figuring out how to do that logistically.

    Monghul- I've ridden the Sullivan Loop in that area; it's pretty fun! You climb up Sullivan Canyon (a little northeast of Topanga), then take a fireroad over to the Backbone Trail (very fun), which drops you down through Will Rogers State Park, then you have to take the road a few miles back to your car.

    You can also drive up the coast a bit and pick up the Backbone Trail in a few other spots, which will get you on more singletrack. I would post this up in the general Socal forum to get more responses and info. Good luck!

    I think they also do a lot of group rides on the weekend you could join up with.

    Looking for a ride on Saturday morning . . . willing to travel (to an extent). This is my last opportunity to ride for a WHILE.

    Thinking maybe Backbone from Kanan, but heading WEST towards the Ranch . . . I sorta know the way. Its a killer ride with a fair bit of climbing, but its fun.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I would, but I worry about making exp. riders wait since I'm slow on climbs.

    Have you done this section of the backbone? How hard are the climbs? How tech is it? Considering doing Kanan up to Melloy and back. If this is part of your planned ride, maybe I can just do this part of it, then break off and turn around at Malloy (or earlier depending on how slow I am). I would rather let people go ahead, than have them wait.

    PS: Read on vctrails that part of this route south of Encinal is private (so can't do the lower half?)

    I suck at reading maps, but I think that's the planned route. Its a little under 10 miles to the main fireroad ridge that I turned around at last time, so it may be the same place. You are welcome to join us (there's one more coming). And I'm def. not a fast climber so don't worry about it. We're meeting in the lot on Kanan just north of T1 at 8:30 tomorrow.

    Chiquito!

    Somehow I've managed to miss this sweet trail all year (I think we went to Noble too much, I mean instead!), and it looks like the fog season is just about over, so wuddya say we hit it before it starts to bake out there?

    I'm thinking about this Wednesday or Thursday morning (8ish?), climbing up from the Candy Store to the waterfall, then throwing in the Viejo Tie loop. Sound like fun?!

    Btw- This is all s/t, comes in around 16/2300, gets fairly technical in sections, and sees very few people mid-week (come prepared).
    Friends don't let friends ride e-"bikes" on dirt.

    Nature is not a sidewalk (I'm looking at you, MidPen).

    New Mountain Biker looking for advice

    Hey guy,
    I am new to mountain biking. Just bought a bike a couple weeks ago and have a friend who is the same. I live in the North San Fernando Valley area and am looking for beginner trails in the area. Can anyone recommend some to me. We are also interested in riding with others. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    I don't know about North SFV, but do know Chesebro (Agoura) is a pretty good beginner spot. You can go pretty far without any major climbs. With the exception of the short "challenges", climbing it gets harder after Sheep Corral. Another good spot for beginners is Pt Mugu (Sycamore) and some parts of Malibu Creek.

    Google ventura county trails and study the site. Not perfect maps but gives decent overviews. I love that site.

    Yo, looking for someone(s) to go for a ride 7/8/12 in the greater San Diego or perhaps beyond region. I'm in La Mesa and have ridden quite a few spots round here but am tired of the solo stuff. I have a car with a 2 bike rack and can fit one inside and take 3 people if some sort of shuttle or trip is put in the works. I did most of the SART a few weeks back and loved it, would like to hit San Juan sometime, hiked Noble but not ridden yet, so basically I'm open. I'm a decent rider, better at the up then scary downhill, 30 y.o. male. Send a PM or reply here and lets see what happens.

    anyone riding 7/9/12 or 7/10/12

    I'm in town (mission beach) for a few days from AZ. I have some time to ride either monday or tuesday. Seeing if anyone has anything going on and doesn't mind showing someone around. I ride XC but XC in AZ is more all mountain, so I'm up for whatever is fun around here. Mission, noble, hidden gem....I'm sure you guys know your trails.

    Let me know if you have anything going on.

    i know this is kinda late in the day, but looking for somebody to ride any of the following places with tomorrow... el prieto, whiting ranch to the luge, santiago oaks, aliso? i would be driving from the south bay area. got room for 2 from the area without overloading my rack. decent climber, not exactly fast. and can hold my own on descents. i ride my enduro pretty aggressive, i think...
    there is also a certain trail in lake elsinore i have been dying to ride.
    let me know.

    Doing early Sat AM Sullivan Ridge/car crash/hub/bacbone loop if anyone's an early rider.
    Been dying to do it since getting my FS
    6:30am start at Casale/Capri(if you want earlier 530 start I'm down)
    I'd say beginner/intermediate ride as in I will be walking some parts uphill and will have no shame haha
    Especially that steep stretch of Sully after Josepho.

    Why don't you start at 5:30 and bring me some coffee and donuts when you're done. I should be up by then

    Is "car crash" actually Bent Arrow?

    Yup. I have also heard it referred to as Broken Arrow.

    I now call it Broken Bent Car or the-trail-that-perfectzero-hits-his-head-on
