    how do i find riders for multi-week trip?

    I'm moving back to the US after being away for about 8 years so I don't exactly know anyone who rides any more. I have a lot of time to kill this summer so I'm taking a mountain biking trip or a couple starting and ending in southern CA. Anyone have any ideas on getting riders together? I'd prefer to go riding with someone other than myself.

    @sixteennornum Good luck finding reliable people for anything. Great when it happens. I'm taking much of the summer off to bike around San Jose, Sierras, ending in Moab in October but I've found it easier to travel alone or with my wife, who is very dependable.

    Too many people agree to a trip and then back out at the last moment. Or they bail out during the trip and you end up with extra expenses or having to drive them home.

    Then there is the problem of finding riders who ride and travel at your pace and fit into your other activities.

    Best of luck!
