    Santiago Truck Trail ride, Saturday

    My Mt Bike has been getting neglected lately.
    So,
    On Saturday I'm planning on riding Santiago truck trail.
    This is in So Orange county, near the end of El Toro rd.
    It starts at the top of Madjesca grade, and is a truck trail that
    has reverted back to mostly single track.
    It is apx 8 Miles up, and a fun 8 miles back down.
    One of my favorite rides, not a beginner trail, but anyone with marginal skills should be able to do it.
    I will be riding at 9am, and will be returning around 12-1p.

    anyone care to join me?

    Here is a link to the ride.
    Parking is just before the gate, on the side of the road. It's free to park. There is plenty of parking, but to be safe be sure to pay attention to the No parking signs.

    I can give directions from just about anywhere.
    Let me know, I would like to have another BF person join me!

    Good deal.
    You know how to get there ok? Didn't ask, so I'm guessing so.
    Look for the Black Intense.

    sorry, I'm taking my little boy to gymboree instead Sat.

    we should put something together for the next weekend. I need to scout some of the trails out here and get you guys to come out. I've kinda had a hankering to do Chino again sometime now that I am in a little better shape.

    Hmmmm.

    On geoladders I have seen stuff about good trails near Perris lake and in Sycamore canyon (Riverside county sycamore canyon-off of the 15) but have never been to either. There is also Fontana where Jsigone has tried to put rides together before @ southridge park.

    Is this the Sycamore canyon your talking about?

    http://www.mountainbikebill.com/SycamoreCanyon.htm

    I believe this is the local trail for Jsigone.
    It looks good, and I am determined to try new trails!
    Oh, and try and train for my first century, ( road, not MTB )

    Took me quite a while to find this. But is this the park?
    Have you been there before? Is it a local ride for you?

    I'm not sure on the century. I still need to get up above 40 miles on the road bike. Now that I ahve a speedo, I will hopefully know how much I'm riding.
    I want to try a 65 mile or so around here. Have one figured out, just need the time, if I only had more time!!

    Yes it was a really good ride. Thanks for showing up Mtblurkr!
    Not much wind, a little cool but nice. My legs are a little shaky now, but it's worth it!
    Hey, where's the pics of you?

    Looks like I missed a good ride, wish I was there!!!

    Sycamore Canyon up in Riverside is a bit of climb on the front end. Some buddies did it and told me about it, for I was suppose to go but had to flake out on them.

    Sycamore Canyon here in San Diego is completly different beast. It has some of the modt diverse trails from the mild hearted fire roads to steep rock garden single tracks. IF any of you are willing to drive from LA/OC to the SD version of Syc Canyon, I'd love to give you the tour of the canyon and narrow creek bed single tracks.

    No he isn't, but he feels like it sometimes.
