Almost a year since I have been to the peak. Suffered a bit on the climb but Joplin is so worth it. Hung out at the peak for a little bit. Fun ride with Troy, Vino, Frank, Matt and Brian.
Joplin never gets old for me. Lots of fun today all the way down with Vino. Started out with Greg, Mark, Vino and we had Jeff & Geoff join us as well. Mark came back down HJ and at the top of Upper HJ the 2 Jeff's took off due to time constraints. Vino & I went to the peak while Greg took off down UJ. Turned out to be a great day out there. Talked to MTBJ at the top of UHJ before he continued on his long ride.
Bailed out on the ride yesterday. Slept in a little this morning and started around 9:15. Bugs started getting bad around mile 4 on TCR which is where they are doing some major construction. Glad I had the bug net with me. Saw 1 biker coming down HJ as I was climbing and 2 others coming down from the peak while taking a break at the top of UHJ. Temps were nice and cool on the mountain.

This route was excellent. The Trabuco road at the start is a great warm up. THe main divide is a killer but worth the connection effort. Joplin is one loose trail! Bigger tires next time for me... I ran a 1x11 with a 32 up front. Next time, I'll put a 30 on. Joplin is kind of overgrown and I've never seen so much poison oak. Would recommend arm coolers for that reason. The Luge is awesome!! Joplin is super loose and rocky. Bring TWO tubes! Also, Upper Holy Jim is really tough going uphill - I would just stick to the fireroad (as per this route)and save yourself for Joplin, as this takes some focus...
It's Saturday so this was the logical choice. Parked at the Path so that I could make sure I had a parking spot for the benefit raffle put on by Andy Lightle for John Potts. Good seeing everyone there. There was a group of about 40 trail runners who were starting at Holy Jim this morning. Probably had about 15 cars pass us on Trabuco Creek Rd. as we pedaled in. Only had 4 runners go by heading up HJ. Good running into CB out there and he finished the ride with Ben, Vino and myself. One spill in the rocky chute on Joplin. Good seeing Ian out there as well.
