 Daylight started, night time finished. Very hot at lower altitude but nicely fresh at the top. More than 10 years since I rode Harding Truck Trail last time, and even more time since I descended upper Joplin Trail. Upper Joplin has been cleaned recently from brush. The rocks and ruts keep the same. Very tough and steep descent. I am happy I did not fall considering that the chances of crashing are very high. I would say 80%.  Other Comments2315142/165

 Afternoon ride. Today's ride was designed to descent Pipeline Trail after visiting Sierra Peak. First time descending Pipeline. The upper section of Pipeline has 5 or 6 very steep sections between 40 and 50% grade and about 150 feet long. Because recent bulldozing those steep sections were even more challenging since the dirt was soft, loose and covered with small rocks. After conquering those sections the rest was a very pleasant descent. 1201132/160

 Very warm at the start. Quite fresh at the end. Riding Fenceline was the goal for today. If we divide Fenceline in 3 sections being the 1st from the trailhead to the first fired road crossing. The 1st section is not rideable because of the overgrown vegetation is closing the trail in a 99%. I didn't ride it. I gave up after 1/4 of a mile. The 2nd, from the first fire road to the second fire road is rideable but very difficult because of the same reason. The 3rd section has been cleared. 2841132/171

Now I can climb with ease what I was struggling before. My only complaint is that in the highest gear and pedaling as fast as I can my cruising speed is only 18 mph. I would happily install a second larger chain-ring. BTW. I had to post this ride manually because in the Garmin page there was not the usual "Looking for Devise" initial step.

My only complaint about the 27.5 is the pedals too low. Too close to the floor. Well, the 29er pedals are at least one inch higher which is super great. Now I have to get used to only one chain ring in the front. 1120134/160

Excellent temps when I rode (Late afternoon) While in the top ridge of Anaheim Hills Trail I went exploring many of the new trail people created and I found a super fun single track of about 1/2 mile long that goes all the way to the bottom trail. So I had to create this new route. It deserves it. Around mile 11.2 I had to deal with a temporary fence placed in the middle of the trail leaving me about 18 inches of trail to ride on, with the fence on the left side and a 6 foot cliff on the right side. What I didn't know was that the fence was electrified and when my handlebar touched it the jolt of electricity made fall down to the bottom of the cliff. 1161134/162

Posting from the Garmin is now faster than ever. Late evening ride with an overcast sky = GREAT RIDE! Descending North Ridge requires shin protectors. The single track is overgrown with those stiff bushes that scratch and scratch and scratch the already bleeding scratches. Awful, hideous. The only good thing about it is that there are only 4 miles of that. 1355132/156

It was a good ride until I got the biggest cramp of my life in my left leg. After 5 minutes still cramped. I was laying inside some bushes entangled with the bike and I could not move at all because the cramp would tighten with any movement. It was already night and 2 riders coming in the opposite direction found me like that and helped me to get up and become functional again. Thank you guys.  Other Comments1039135/160

Very hot day and very little breeze. The highest temp I saw was 113F. The trail besides steep was very loose with deep ruts. Had no other alternative than riding inside them. I ran out of water by the creek and a major HAB was waiting for me. Another minus, there was no shade after the creek, so, no shade, no breeze, no water, 113F and hiking the bike 1.3 miles. I thought I was going to collapse. 2015143/169

Most cyclists were going thru many, many rock gardens like bullets. Hundreds of stairs to climb and a thousand drops to clear. My goal was to comeback home unharmed and I did it. Conquering the WE was very hard work but I loved it. I am addicted to this. This ride.....Not in my bucket list anymore. (Two flats) 1350133/162

On the last 1/3 of it there are some descents of 50% grade at least. At the very end there is a 15 ft vertical drop. I had the same inconveniences as last time to get out of the gravel mine. (at the bottom- after Coldwater) I had to squeeze through an 8 inch gap created when I forced open the existing gate. I had to remove the pedals and rotate the handle bar 90 degrees.  Other Comments1505137/158

Very hot when ascending (108 F) despite being at 4,500 ft elevation. After ascending the 2.5 miles of Josephine Peak Road starts the single track. The trail is fairly wide, nevertheless there is major exposure at times. The cliffs are very deep and to make matters worse in some sections, the trail has been cut into the rock in a vertical fashion, so I had to ride close to the edge of the trail to avoid my handle bar touching the rocky wall which will send me right down the cliff. Besides that, the loop is awesome. The best part for me was the last 4 miles ridden on the Gabrielino trail. There is some Puddle Dog Bush on Gabrielino but is avoidable. (New chain) 1339137/169

At least I rode it once. It was a good technical single track. My alternative today was to climb to the Peak. The climb required 50% more effort due to the wet dirt. 2013127/221

Finally the good temps I was waiting for this planned ride. First time riding in Despacio's back yard (south of Lake Hills). This is a huge area with hundred of roads and trails, but nobody in there except for me. Also tons of broken glass and empty shut-gun shells. Skyline is like a lady, curvy and smooth. Coal Canyon Road has been graded to a freeway status. Unbelievably smooth. My plan for this route was a descent through Locals Only Trail, but it was dark already and I was very tired.  Other Comments4198133/198

This trail is not to be ridden solo at 2:00 am. In the dark night is hard to find the path, which, by the way, is a continuous rock garden. I came back up to the road to resume my descent.

Ascending Upper Winter Creek was really tough. The trail is almost horizontal up to Mt Zion fork, but after that the trail becomes really steep.

First time for me descending Upper Winter Creek from Wilson Toll Road. This trail is smooth as a baby's butt. It is steep, but no rocks, no roots, no drops, no leaves, and minimal exposure.

I enjoyed this trail a whole bunch. A mostly smooth and wide singletrack with very few technical sections. The trail always traverses several mountains in the same fashion. Going from the top of the ridge to the bottom of the canyon 3 or 4 times during the section. So it is a constant up and down in either direction it is ridden. 2080142/246

2nd time doing this route in a month. I like it a lot because it offers a little bit of everything. The two main ascents; Mill Creek Road and Morton Ridge Trail aren't hard nor easy, they are adequate. Some single track trails are fast rolling and others are so tight that there is no margin for errors. I have to confess I was scared descending SART after Morton Ridge because the exposure is very high. In some sections the trail is about 16" wide of loose sand inclined toward the (very deep) almost vertical cliffs. If you fall off these cliffs you will probably die. 2787129/160

At 7,000 ft altitude the temperature was in the low 70s. There was fresh breeze too. This was my first time riding the upper section of SART upwards. That was a lot of work, with a lot of loose sand and big rocks to deal with. Very different to the other 6 miles of SART ridden at the end. Those were my reward. I had a Superman that made me land my chest on a rock. After that my breathing was restricted by the pain, and still had to go 14 more miles. 3616131/172

The Fox 32 Float, with 120mm of travel and 3 settings, is a huge difference compared to my old fork. It delivers such a smooth ride that it feels like a totally new bike. Money well spent.

Today's forecast for Idyllwild was mostly sunny and 10% chances of rain.(BS) When I started the ride it was already snowing a little bit. Later on the ride it was snowing heavily. So much snow that I lost the trail several times causing me to lose precious time and making me ride 2 1/2 hours in the night. It was dark and there was 8 inches of snow everywhere. In one occasion I lied the bicycle down and walked around that area trying to find the trail using a flashlight. When I came back to get the bike I could not find it because it was completely covered with snow in just few minutes. My toes and fingers were frozen and are still numb.  Other Comments1673134/165

The first climb, called "Desierto Vis", is very steep (around 26%) and long. What a way to start a ride! After that I got lost and almost came back to my starting point. My plan for today was to get to the Palm Springs Oasis in the actual Palm Canyon but Mountain Bicycles are not allowed on the trails leading to that place. So I had to change plans and start my comeback riding on Vandeventer Trail to the wash, then Dunn Road. I got lost the second time when I chose the wrong wash. The third time getting lost was when I took the wrong turn on Wildhorse Trail and ended up somewhere else in the city. I learned why the Wildhorse name to that trail. It really kicked my ass. More than 30 hairpin switchbacks with lose dirt and almost vertical cliffs.  Other Comments2452135/192

I thought I could connect to Carbon Canyon Road but the trail was blocked with overgrown vegetation a few yards before the asphalt. Despite not being able to connect to the asphalt the exploration was worth it.  Other Comments2853133/177

When riding toward my car on Highway 74 (after descending Ramona Trail) I saw, at the edge of the road, this brown sign for hikers about Cedar Spring Trail. I decided to go ride this short 3 mile trail to Cedar Spring. The trail is very challenging from the beginning. Steep grade with lose rocks and also half buried large rocks. I took me 1 hour to ride the 3 miles to Cedar Spring. The comeback (descent) was more enjoyable even when I had to navigate through so many rocks, bushes and a bunch of cattle using the same trail. 577140/168

Another Home-run choosing the San Bernardino mountains on this O.C. hot day. I can't complain about the temperature up there, but I have to complain about the bugs on the lower part of the ride. I swallowed about 30 of them. They rode with me flying around my head. I had to stop many times to kill them. Bunches of them would quickly gather. They actually helped me go faster since they can't fly faster than 9 mph I had to go at least 10 whenever possible.  Other Comments3482131/160

Today everything was excellent. i.e. Excellent weather (partially cloudy) temperatures (in the 60s)and good trail conditions because it rained this morning which meant tacky dirt. (I rode in the afternoon). Great commute, caught no traffic going nor coming back. I lost about 10 minutes fixing 2 wrong turns I made on the route. I really enjoyed this ride today since having tacky dirt makes a huge difference. Last time it was unenjoyable because of the loose sand I felt like I would wash out on the turns.

I am a mountain biker primarily. This is my 2nd road ride and the longest so far. I am training for a 110 miles road ride from home to San Diego. One thing I must do for sure is get a softer seat. 2661125/153

Unbelievable, I did not see any other mountain biker in today's 4 hour ride. I guess riders were afraid of the heat. Yes the sun was mad today but also there was a very nice cool breeze everywhere. Another comment is that I tried to ride East Fenceline from its beginning but I had to abort after 1/2 mile due to thorny plants blocking the trail in too many places. I even pruned about 30 yards of it but quit doing it when I found out how extensive the problem was. Instead I rode this single track trail on top of a very skinny ridge which connected me to a dirt road and later to the actual Fenceline somewhere ahead. I don't know for sure the name of this skinny ridge but I think it is West Fenceline. (or I'll baptize it Skinny Ridge)  Other Comments2341134/170

Good thing I brought my shin guards and long sleeve shirt, because Coldwater Trail was so much overgrown with vegetation that 50% of the path could not be seen. It looks like the crew that cut the beginning of this trail were not the same people who finished it. The beginning is reasonably steep with its corresponding switchbacks, the other half is as steep as the shape of the ridge with 50% grade or more. Good temps. Good ride. 1753134/161

While in Whiting, went exploring a trail called Red Rock that goes nowhere. At the end is a very impressive geological formation caused by erosion (water-winds). Yeah, it was worth the ride to nowhere. I even took pictures of it. Later, in STT met Elias, together we completed the route. 1903135/162

People should not be allowed to have as much fun as I had today. This route has 21 miles of the most awesome single tracks you can ever find. These 2 trails have just the right touch of technical difficulties required to test your bike-handling abilities. 1443136/164

While in North Ridge I did some exploring of an over grown dirt road (later single track trail)that took me down to the bottom of the canyon. It seems that the trail connects to Carbon Canyon Road. Cold winds at NR.  Other Comments1463135/173

Thanks Eric for putting together this great route. I enjoyed it a lot. I rode the most southern loop in the opposite direction. I think it is harder that way because the Trabuco Ridge Trail uphills, when ridden south to north, are steeper (24%). Otherwise the weather, as you guys already know, was perfect and the creek had just enough water to cause no inconveniences.  Other Comments3034135/174

I repeated this ride again in order to have the correct GPS routing downloaded to GL. This ride was not painful (like last week) because there was no mud to deal with, and because I went to Chino Hills neighborhood and had a 12 inch sandwich. Very different ride when energy is replenished. This time I did not find Scully Ridge Trail dull. 2851140/164

Solo night ride. Everything was going okay until I hit STT. The winds were so strong that I had to stop in certain places to avoid being sent down the cliffs. Saw no other riders tonight. 1122139/214

Great ride tonight. Some mud encounters of which one stunk like a pig's den.
