Another Santa Clarita Valley Dual Sport Ride Sun July 15, 07

Recommended Posts

VTRMike and I will AGAIN be at the Starbucks at Copper Hill and Seco Canyon this Sunday July 15 at 7:30am :cheers: for a dual sport ride around SCV. Wind up back at Starbucks ~12 noon.

No set route, will ride to suit group's preferences and abilities. Normal ride includes a little of each:

General SC Valley fun spots - Rowher - Drinkwater - Fire roads. Lotsa dirt. Casual - no pressure. It WILL be warm and dusty. :busted:

All welcome, must sport knobbies and water and a plated bike :thumbsup: See you there :thumbsup:

Hey everyone- Had another good ride Sunday: Met as planned and hit the road at about 7:45.

First some crazy Edison road warm-up (no, NOT at end of Haskell). In and out quick and quiet. :bonk:

Then off to a SS canyon singletrack. This >tight< trail has some wooden drop-off ramps, bridges and a teeter-totter for the MTB free-ride gang.

Back on the street, then to a big dirt “play area” in the Vasquez Canyon area.

Back onto Sierra hiway to Rowher, up Rowher Trail, across Sierra Trail (?). Here I had a :cheers: brainfart and ended up about 9 feet off the trail (didn’t drop it, Chris :lol: ), pop up onto ridge, and down Bouquet Trail to staging.

Back on pavement to Coarse Gold Mtwy (kennels). Up Coarse Gold to Deer Peak. Down to House Trail (VTRMike low-sided here, took it on the hip and brake lever:cripple: ) Across ridge top in lower Drinkwater, down to staging, and back to Starbucks for iced tea and coffee.

Never got too hot. We were both beat up by about 11:30.

Thanks again Mike for riding out from Simi.:thumbsup: :thumbsup: Mike gets to put up with all my last-second course changes and wrong-ways :lol: . Due to my lack of communication, I had Mike going up and down stuff I won’t even try to ride. :busted:

Thanks again for another great ride! That House trail got me. The front end washed out when I could not make up my mind on what line to take. Broke a mirror, bent my brake lever, put even more scratches on my XR, and put another bump on my right hip. I have to get some hip pads!

You guys should join us. We have been taking some great trails at a very good pace with very few stops. You can have a blast, get a great workout, and be done before noon. The heat has not been bad at all either.
