MTB ride: Jan 14th Sycamore Canyon in San Diego

Kinda last minute but meeting up some guys from MTBR forums on Sunday. Meeting time about 8:30am, ride starts about 9am. This ride will be a few hours long, should be back before the charger game at 1:30 Route will be 15-18 miles, not sure what loop the other guys are planing to put in. Dress for the cold, not sure how the weather and winds will be this weekend.

Skill level should be intermidate+, not much fire roads here


Directions from OC/LA
5 south
78 East
15 south
Exit Poway Road
Left on Poway Road (East)
Right on Garden Road
Right on Sycamore Canyon Road
Dead ends to dirt parking lot.

I'll give out my cel# to those coming just in case you make a wrong turn or something

Dad's birthday...All day food/fun/football/fiesta.

/ps, my brakes still don't work. I haven't tried to fix them. I was just going to close my eyes and wish them fixed.

I'm boycotting all SD skate spots after they bulldozed my beloved Webb Park in Rancho Bernardo. It's been, oh, about 12 years now.

//didn't skate much then.
