    T'sup slacker?!

    Leaving to get my cast cut off in three hours. Bringing along one of my bike shoes, and going to beg the podiatrist to let me ride my rollers. Once I can ride again, get the circulation rockin' it's pretty much going to be healed.
    Have a safe ride G-money.

    Riding down to Mission Viejo on Saturday for my daughter's soccer game - if any of you speed demons pass me on Santiago Canyon say hi.

    I was GOING to drag my 10 yr old son up GMR Sunday morning but it looks like his damn team manager scheduled a scrimmage. Soccer. It's going to be the death of me.

    Chris what on earth did you do to your foot? I was in a cast for 2 months this summer and it set me way back.

    Riding Karen Johnson's GMR Climbfest on Saturday. Start from Encanto at 8:30AM, up the SGRT to merge onto Hwy 39, right on East Fork to Camp Williams, then up Little GMR to junction and left on GRR to Mt. Baldy Village (optional Suffer-fest on the Ski-Lift Climb).

    Coffee%20and%20Cinnamon%20Roll%20at%20Mt_%20Baldy%20Lodge.jpg

    I'll stop at Mt. Baldy Lodge for a cinnamon roll and coffee (food-fest!) before the return trip down GRR to Big GMR to Sierra Madre and back to the park via SGRT.

    Sounds like fun!

    ...just like a wop to bring a motorcycle to a monster-truck fight.


    A monster-truck moron made a left turn into me. Some scrapes on the bike, ruined a helmet, and broke two metatarsals. (My 12th and lucky 13th broken bone.)
    It's only been two weeks, and I can already wiggle my toes (admittedly with some stiffness.) I stopped all coffee, tea, & soda; have eaten half a fresh pineapple every day for the last 3 weeks, and of course a calcium supplement.

    Ah! Well, heal up. Beer has known medicinal qualities, don't be shy with the stuff.

    We'll be on Santiago Canyon around 9am but I doubt I'll be flying by anyone. We're doing a loop starting in irvine, up jamboree to Santiago canyon, live oak, Trabuco and returning thru Santa margarita, el toro and shady canyon if anyone wants to join in the fun.

    you'll probably be ahead of me... I reckon if I leave whittier at 8 am (the target) I'll hit Santiago at about 10.

    Chino Hills SP. I've been hitting the dirt since July. I can get a nice 30 mile ride in without worrying about cars. Though I did ride past a damn big bull (could have been a steer; I wasn't going to get that close to check) a few weeks ago. He was about 20 feet off the road munching and staring at me. I waited a few minutes until a trail runner came by. Dude had his jams cranked up and I doubt he ever saw the bull. At that point, I figured all I had to do was ride faster than the trail runner and rode past him and the bull at the same time.

    My regular reading of bikinginla has turned me off of road riding for a while. Too many people getting killed.

    Oh cool I haven't been there in ages. I should try it out next weekend. How are the trails? I remember there being some tough climbs in CHSP.

    PS, there's no cars on the SART.

    It had been a few years since I had ridden there when I started hitting it regularly in July. The trails are in good shape. Sandy in spots but good. The exception is North Ridge east of Sycamore Canyon which is a giant sand box. The climbs are steep like you remember. I still can't make it up the 3 B's. There is almost no difficult technical stuff and no way to shuttle, so the Go Pro crowd mostly goes elsewhere. There is a nice run of singletrack linked by short stints of fire road that's a lot of fun. From Four Corners one can link Raptor, Fault Line, Sidewinder and Bane Ridge singletracks with short stretches of FR in between. Telegraph can get a little crowded with walkers and HS cross country teams, but everyplace else it seems like you have the park to yourself. Everyone seems to get along well but for the occasional jerk that buzzes by the hikers rather than slowing down.

    I like bike watching there. I saw a rigid 29er 1x11 yesterday. I saw an old '90s ProFlex a couple months ago. There's a fair amount of the latest and greatest along with Wal Mart specials. Cyclocross bikes are common on the FR. Last week I saw a family on a bright yellow 4-person off road "tandem." They were heading up Telegraph. That thing must have quite a turning radius.

    There was a trail running event on Saturday at CHSP (something crazy like 50km) so I ended up riding at Turnbull instead. That place needs a lot of rain. The trails are in rough shape. I'm guessing it must be from people skidding. All of the worst sections were before sharp turns that required heavy braking.
