Well, I live in ssf, ca and I can pretty much drive in any direction for trails. I have trails where I live in fact. I want trails close to where Im going to be. From searching all I've found is some trail around the bay, which is mostly paved and smooth so... oh well.

We need a NorCal meet up, like they did in North Carolina, that would be cool.

I totally agree. The difference between us and the dudes from the east is we are mostly 17-18-19 year olds. Not everyone can drive. I'm thinking we could do it in the summer, and I can pick up maybe like gmoney from san jose or something. We need to decide somewhere to ride thats somewhere in between where everyone lives. We'd probably have to make like a day trip out of it. Like a really long day ride would be awesome.

Ya, totally. As for driving, I should (assuming I don't do anything stupid) be getting my license at 10:15 tomorrow morning

Sounds awesome.

Say the mid point for everyone is san francisco. Im 10 minutes away. Gmoney is about an hour. You are over 2 hours. Siu is probably like 30 minutes. We just need to find a trail system that is challenging and not all smooth crap, that will suit us for almost a day.

Just ride all the way up Alpine Road and enjoy the trails of the Montebello Open Space Preserve.
