Put in a few miles yesterday.
Left the house in the rain at about 7 am plan was to ride up Albertson Fireroad to China Flats and meet Enduro Dave. And go from there total route planned was about 42 miles.
5 miles to the trailhead
As I climbed into the mountains the rain start to fall harder. 🤡🤡
Met up with Dave. He beat me to the top and decided to drop down and meet up with me and join me on the struggle bus
Hit a few sections that caked up the tires a little bit with mud but mostly riding on DG...
Views didn't disappoint.
Dropped down Triple Threat... somewhere along the way Dave deleted his bottle. We backpedaled a bit to no avail, and pressed on Las Virgenes Fire road. Tons of downed trees, stream crossing, and washed-out trail.
We came up to one crossing with a 3-foot drop into the creek... had to send it haha.
Then we decided to take a bonus line up to a fun downhill... we had to climb the beloved Pump Hill... Woof! encountered a mudslide that was on the trail about 1/4 of the way up Which gummed up the tires realllll nice. We got through that...and then it basically was good until it wasn't.. a climb that usually takes 7-8 mins took us 30 mins had to stop and ungum the tires... Finally, at the top of that mess, we dropped down Montezuma... trail conditions were all time... Ear to ear smile... all the way to the bottom.
From there we were going to press on a little further but decided to pack it in after all the mud zapping out energy.
We grabbed a coffee at Mickey D's... Took a break for a few mins.
Hit the pike back home. Ended up being about 20 miles of dirt and 20 miles of road.
