While not as long as the "Aliso Tour" route, the Dual Loops include the most popular ascents, Mathis and Cholla, while conveniently setting you up for the downhill fun of Rock-It and Lynx trails. Coyote Run is utilized to provide for an exciting singletrack journey home.

04/24/16 Sunny and cloudy off and on. Nice riding weather. Bottom bracket started grinding before Cholla so slowed down and tried to coast when possible. It needs maintenance for sure. Was going to do this loop again, but with the mechanical issue, cut the day short. Handed out a few Rwanda Ride cards to riders - hope they sign up for next week's event.
10/17/15 Nice afternoon with sun and breeze. Humid though so dripped every time I stopped. Helped a father/son team 1/3 up Mathis to loan him my pump. He had a spare, but no pump. Surprised my new gear ratios allowed me to still clean Dripping Cave and Mathis. Headset got a bit loose - A big "shout-out" to Rock N Road shop for fixing that up post ride for me, as I thought my bike was rattling apart coming down Rock-it and Lynx. Saw 1 covey of quail. Actually passed a guy going up Mathis.
02/21/15 Nice easy ride - didn't push too hard. A bit cool with the wind but not bad. Watched all the studs this morning at the Harding Time Trial race while volunteering and realized how I couldn't get motivated to try that trail today. Tired from busy week and getting up super early to help with registration. Maybe next month when closer to Rwanda ride I'll tackle Harding. Only saw 1 little lizard out today. Talked to a few folks and handed out cards for the Rwanda ride. Nothing else to report.
