Blackstar Canyon is one of the more northern mountain biking venues in the Santa Ana mountain range. The fire road ascent to Beek's Place is very pleasant with constant views & variations of grade.

Super relaxing, peaceful afternoon ascent. When I started off I envisioned Sierra Peak. Wait, no, better than that, Pleasants Peak! But by the end of it all, I was happy with just Beeks. Blackstar has been "fixed" again. They did a good job and it is not particularly too soft or anything, but is definitely, meh, blase. Just as I thought, to fill in the fallen areas they just carve deeper in to the uphill side and push dirt over the fallen side. So there is little reason not to use the same technique on North Ridge in CHSP. Twas' a Great Ride!

Another real nice twilight ride. I was feeling sluggish, but got stronger after HR. Rode the Phantom, its first ride up BS. Super cool sunset action on the descent. Great Ride!

Pleasantly paced pedaling pacifies. Delightful twilight slow-roller with J&S. Stunningly beautiful out there, at one point it was a pink ocean. Great Ride!

No surprise, it was cold out there this evening. Still, a Great Ride!
