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.

Chilly ride off and on when sun was behind a cloud. Tons of hikers out with their dogs. Never seen so many dogs on the trail. 40 to first grate. 54 to second. 1:20 to Beeks. Cold and windy on the top and on return. Not feeling it today with several stops on the climb up. Slow going. Gotta get in shape!
pretty good
Great group of 6 today!
quick ride before dark

Whew! Made my annual climbing goal. 100 miles straight up. Back on Dec 1st I was questioning if I could meet the goal. I was down by almost 60k feet. I'm kind of a tenacious person who is very much goal-oriented so I had to blitz for it. After today, it's all goal gravy. Past years it was easy to blow past the 100 miles straight up goal, but shifting priorities and a willingness to give up perfectly good riding days for other activities made this year a challenge. Nothing like a nice peaceful Blackstar ride to clear the mind and the soul. Great Ride!!
