This is a shuttle ride incorporating the middle section of the Vision Quest race (second half of Counting Coup).

There are several stream crossings towards the end of the ride. Be advised that Maple Springs is sometimes busy with off-road vehicles and Holy Jim is sometimes busy with hikers. Forest Adventure Pass required to park at Maple Springs.

Great training ride with cfeliciano. I decided to get back onto geoladders after a long hiatus. Too bad I still can't get my Garmin to communicate with geoladders. I was hoping that it would've fixed itself after a few years of being away, but no such luck. I guess I will continue to manually load my rides.
Nice ride with Paul. Great weather. I actually enjoyed the descent on upper and lower holy jim this time and no crashes! Woo-hoo!
Wow. A fantastic day out. Can I say that this ride almost felt like it was over too quickly? Tried to get to the Peak in 2 hours, hit it at 2:04; still my best effort. Didn't see a single rider until we hit LHJ. LOTS of hikers on both Holy Jims, which made the descent a little slow, but still what a blast!

Missed Upper Holy Jim singletrack and passed LHJ at first and did some extra credit--went all the way to a white gate...Indian Truck Trail? Literally thought about calling the wife...pick me up in Lake Elsinore... But manned up and crawled back up to LHJ and it wasn't bad getting there. Holy Jim was gorgeous. Bummed I missed UHJ--didn't realize it was that hidden.
Nice day on the bike with friends, Brian's annual birthday ride. Holy Jim was in great shape. I got soaked going through the water crossings on trabuco creek rd.

Proper shake down ride for Sarah's new Epic. She set lots of personal best times on the ups although the fork was problematic on the downs. Got into some back pain within the 1st hour and it got worse and worse as the ride went on. Suppose I should have turned around earlier on!
Good fun with Willie, Pat, Keith, Ryan, Lynn and Kris!
rode staight through no stopping for the flys were trying to intimidate us. I ate at least two of them.

Rode last Sunday with Kparsons, Larry, Carry and Leigh. Lots of windy sections, but trails are in good shape. Lots of hikers on Holy Jim including one with a Macaw.
Fun birthday ride w/ everyboby today. Perfect weather rode a 7" bike a little heavy on the up hill, but performed awesome downhill!! :)
