Just Greg and I this morning. Haven't been on Los Pinos trail in 2 years. HAB's didn't seem quite as bad as I remember but the downs were super chunky. I definitely prefer Bell Ridge, Yeager and Joplin to Pinos. There was a 100 mile trail run going on and we had the runners coming down San Juan as we climbed. Overall not too bad and after mile 4 no more issues. Some bugs after Cocktail Rock and some clueless shuttlers as well. Saw one other rider who passed us on the way to Los Pinos. Grub at Bad to the Bone after the ride hit the spot. Did see a car off the side of Ortega after the ride.
The san Juan climb up to blue jay was fun, epic classic, but we went and ruined a good ride by doing. Pinos, it's in a class by it self. I can't say any of us enjoyed it. It's rocky, step hike-a-bikes and some pretty nasty loose downhills. We didn't see another soul on this trail, and honestly it didn't look like it gets that much use. If you're thinking about doing this as a "fun" loop for San Juan, seriously think again, as the posting says, it's for EXPERTS... no joke. Happy trails.
Pinos was a little more challenging today due to its extra Toothyness from the rain.Super good times with Mike, Kevin and Jimmy..
Hot and extra loose. Only made the Pizza and Beer taste that much better..
Met a guy (Peter)from San Diego in the parking lot looking for the San Juan trail head. Told him he could tag along with me.Convinced him to do Pinos. At Pinos peak he told me that he did not know he was riding with a Masochist.I guess I will take that as a Compliment.haha.Cool guy, strong rider,on a Niner hard tail. He killed it! Good seeing Ian out there, again.
This route never gets old especially when,you throw in a side of Viejo Tie. Perfect temps. all day. Rode with Tweasol,and Sam. Thanks guys!
Pinos was a little rowdy today...fun times

Started with Brian and Frank, got dusted pretty quickly. Need to get my legs back. They dropped Yeagar and I rode down Pinos solo. Great ride!
