    Time: 7:00am - Rolling by 7:15am
    Where: Malibu Creek State Park
    Ride Description or Details:
    Mostly fire roads with some single track mixed in. Pretty much an XC style ride so I will be riding my 100mm suspension XC bike for this one. The chunk is easily ridden on any style bike, the climbs are brutal at times especially on Bulldog going up to Castro peak. There really is no significant exposure on this ride.
    ~~~~~ Optional Details ~~~~~
    Meet Location:

    Skill Level: Intermediate
    Ride Pace: Easy with Moments of Effort, Moderate Pace
    Type of Ride: Loop
    Rider Limit: Bring it! I'm proficient at herding cats
    Anticipated Mileage: 21-28 miles depending on options
    Elevation Gain: 3900-4200
    Ride Duration: 3-4 hours depending on group pace
    Previous Ride Reports:
    Possible Bail-Outs:
    This is a loop ride so you're pretty much committed
    Facilities: Anywhere where snakes are not present. Restrooms at the park entrance.
    Food/water suggestions: Water is only available at the beginning and end by the park entrance. If we add the mini Millennium loop, we can refill at the cars before doing the extra credit.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention we will be stopping at the M*A*S*H* site where the TV show was filmed. That's at the beginning of the ride just before the dreaded climb up Bulldog :thumbsup:

    Bummer...

    Plan B: New Millennium loop if the park is still closed on Sunday. We can probably get around the campsites anyway.
