Santa Clarita, CA trail riding.

Anybody here from Santa Clarita/ Valencia area? I see many cyclist while riding the bike trails/paths, but not sure if any are on this forum. It would be nice to ride in a group.

Oops. Sorry I missed this. Yes, I live in the area, and yes, we do have some great trails. The valley tends to get pretty small once you get some miles in your legs, though. You're new with the forum, so I don't know much about your riding history. If you're just getting started, the trails will be great. If you're a more experienced rider, then I think you'll find the trails become shorter than you think.

Once in a while I ride with a group out of Bicycle John's on Sunday mornings. It's a pretty laid-back group, and very welcoming. The average ride is about 50 miles, with routes like the Acton store, Camp 9 (when the road re-opens), Sierra to The Old Road to Mentryville, the old Ridge Route, etc. They usually include elements on the trails, but then venture off into the canyons. There is talk about starting a "B" ride, for those with less experience and maybe only comfortable on the trails, but it's not a real deal yet. Let me know if you want more info.

I won't be riding this weekend, but when I ride with my wife, she's a MUP only type rider. That's where her comfort level is, but I'll take it. Any chance to ride with her and/or the kids is awesome.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I am pretty new to road bikes. I actually just bought my first road bike( specialized Allez sport). I try to only ride on the bike trails. But I have been commuting to work as well on my road bike. It is a very short commute (6 miles each way)... The longest bike ride was 20 miles. Rode from copper hill to canyon country on the bike trail.
