    Damn, I wish I could make it. I'm working OT tomorrow, but I'll try and ride on Sunday. Will you still be up for a ride Sunday?

    sure, sunday's fine too.

    morning or afternoon? we can cruise Aliso-Wood and maybe Laguna Wilderness on Sunday, get some coffee at diedrichs by main beach and watch pretty girls in bikinis play volleyball.

    damn, life is good!

    tempting route....

    ....but I think I am going to hit the old 38/SART/jenks lake loop....I wanna get up there before it starts getting to hot and buggy.

    Have fun up there on Trabuco!

    SART is 'sposed to be one excellent trail. i've never ridden it; i really should though. you're talking about an all-day adventure with that ride, for sure.

    be careful and have a great ride!

    Yeah, you've got to check it out!...

    ....it's a great trail, and it doesn't see a lot of traffic for some reason....The loop that I'll do tomorrow is a pretty long loop, definitely a 6-7 hour affair....somewhere in the 35-40 mile range, but all fun:-)

    SART is sweeet!

    I've only ridden SART once but it definitely was a memorable ride. The only part I hated was the dirt road climb at the end. After 30 or so miles I wasn't in the mood for that. I'd like to try it on my SS, though. There's nothing really hilly at all, just a slow gradual climb that's barely noticeable until the return trip. Then it's all smiles. I'll have to find a different start point as to avoid that first steep dirt road.

    eSSq...

    If I can ride Sunday it would be EARLY. Like 7:00 early. That way my family doesn't complain too much. I don't see my wife at all during the week so I try not to be gone too long on the weekends. Not to mention, the Lakers play the Spurs on Sunday. You KNOW I'm not missin' that.

    You can always....

    .....park on glass road, which is the road that you cross at the halfway point...that way you can go up to south fork, back past your car to the fireroad,and then back to your car....but then you miss all the singletrack behind the post office, which is the shizzy!

    There's quite a few options up there....get a map of the area and see what you can think of...there really are ton's of different ways to ride that trail system.

    I took a relatively new rider up Holy Jim last Friday, just as the Santa Anas came howling in. It was a tough slog into 30-mph winds most of the way from Sr. Lico's. Anyway, my point was watch out for the poison oak!! It's not too bad down in the bottom, but as you climb there were a lot of wispy branches reaching out into the trail, and it was particularly bad just before the spring.

    BTW, Chris, when you want to do SART, let me know. It's great riding up there and there are a number of options, one of which will make you think you're riding in redwoods in NorCal.

    i've abandoned this route before because of high, hot winds out there, but i've also finished the ride feeling so fresh i was ready to do it again. hopefully tomorrow will be the latter.

    thanks for the PO warning, but i am immune!

    i would definitely be up for a SART ride someday. i've been thinking a Socal SS Gathering would be fun; maybe we could get something together for May. i'm sure ther'd be more interest in that than a last-minute CNF ride.
