    Las Llajas fire road out and back. Finally getting Jennifer back on her MTB. It's only 7 miles but it's a start.

    Made some errors in calculations this morning regarding my choice of surf location and equipment, so I bailed on surfing and I am now headed out to salvage a little bit of fitness with a short, ordinary Aliso ride from Canyon Vistas. See you there! (10:00 am Sunday, October 28).

    EDIT: Fail #2 on the day. Dropped down 5-Oaks and my derailleur was all messed up B-angle screw was not seated and appears bent. Got it back in place, but could not get the derailleur set right. I'm usually pretty good at that including setting high and low speed limits, adjusting the proper cable tension and fine tuning the indexing. Couldn't get it right. Chain wouldn't stay put. But that's a topic for a different thread.

    :(

    Jennifer's going to head to the spa for a facial and a massage. Guess who's going for another ride? :D

    Heading out for Yucca Valley in a few minutes to stay 'til Monday. Planned rides:

    *Joshua Tree National Park: Geology Tour Road lollipop. Gonna try to talk my cousin into dropping down into Berdoo Canyon a lil' ways.
    *Section 6 in Joshua Tree. There's a few trail sections I have not yet hit up there.
    *Yucca Mesa dirt road loop. Just for spinning.

    Is Berdoo Cyn. a worthy ride say from Dunn Rd? I camp right by there every year.

    It’s a cool place to be via any means, but it’s nothing like a classic ride. Snaking, narrow, sandy canyon road. The south end of it looked like a dump every time I’ve been through.

    Red Flag warning through Tuesday in San Gabriels above Glendora, meaning GMR should be closed to vehicles. I feel a road ride comin' on.

    It is a dump and a shooting range to boot that’s why I’ve never done it. Makes for more excitement.

    Gotta get the weezel out for shreddies tomorrow, highs in low 40s but clear. 1-3" of snow coming Sunday, so we’ll have company at White Ranch. :cautious::geek:

    Plans changed, my wife and kids are going with grandma to visit family in Murrieta so I am going to load up my car and head to Aliso for a change. Hopefully I’ll miss the early walkers but not planning on pushing it since I haven’t ridden there in a long time.

    I’ll be the wind hating snowflake on a black Huffy, red jersey, cheeseburger socks and dorky backpack so if you see me please don’t throw a stick in my spokes.

    Well I don't have enough time to attend the Revolution Bike Fest and it's too smoky in Simi Valley to ride so I'm headed over to Tapia for a few laps.

    Think I'll hit Aliso early tomorrow (11-11-18). Unfortunately, so will everybody else.

    Hey guys! I'm going to have some time later in the week/weekend. I want to try out Turnbull trail or Portuguese Bend. Are these appropriate for a beginner beginner? :geek:

    Turnbull should be OK, just keep your speed in check. Don't know about the other. Depending on what your plans are timewise, I might be able to tag along if you end up at Tb.

    For some reason I thought Thanksgiving was the week after next. It's next week and I'm off. I guess I have some quick planning to do. Since most everything around here was affected by the fires I may be spending a lot of time around the Rocky Peak area.

    It’s next week? I guess it’s a good thing I have no concept of time right now. I’m barely working the month of November, have this week off, 4 day weekend next weekend then took my son’s birthday (11/27) off too. Hopefully they don’t figure out that they don’t really need me while I’m out. :eek:

    Or those who get 7 weeks of paternity leave.. on top of 5 weeks vacation and 2 weeks of sick time. Most my riding has been on weekdays off the past couple of years.

    Although I am done with paternity leave.. :(
