    I only update the website, I don't update iMTB... :whistling:

    But seriously... There's going to be a small fee should anybody wish to buy food (tacos etc), just waiting for confirmation on that, which I expect will be Monday...

    We should have confirmation on Monday (10/8) about this event. There will be bicycle riding involved, although probably in an unofficial capacity. There's quite a few of the members that put a lot of their free time (and $$$) into the community, and this is one of the opportunities to get everyone together without it being a fund-raiser, trail work day, or other commitment...just go for a ride and have some pretty good food in a nice environment...and celebrate 30 years of existence. The intent of the (tiny) fee is to cover the cost of the RSVP...and make sure people who RSVP actually show up...there's nothing worse than having 150 RSVP's, put down the deposit to cover it, and have half show up.

    Besides, we're all going to ride anyway, we're all going to eat lunch, and the location will satisfy everyone from the casual to the hard-core.

    Suggested loops that will keep people off of Live Oak Canyon Road (except if they want to descend it) will also be posted for those members unfamiliar with the area.

    (and maybe some beverages)

    Stay tuned.

    For those who are interested, follow the link to the website. We are in the process of signing the final agreement with Rose Canyon Cantina as the HQ for the lunch portion of the event, and we'll be asking all who attend to park off-site and ride to the event. There will be a cap, as although its normally a slow weekend for them, we will only have 1/2-3/4 of the outdoor patio space. The nominal fee is to ensure that those who RSVP are motivated to attend...nothing worse than Facebook RSVP's turning into a lot of wasted food, or have those that RSVP and occupy the limited space not show up.

    The event is limited to SHARE members as a way to provide a measure of thanks for the efforts of the members throughout the past few years. Each individual SHARE member can bring (1) adult guest and children under 10 do not count as a +1. Not a SHARE member? Why not become one. We've been around a minute longer than IMBA, and were active long before we were affiliated with them.

    At the very least, become a member, come on out, and see if you want to get more involved. I got involved by working on Mentally Sensitive as part of the efforts to pave the way for racing in the OC Parks, and then Lizards and trails in Aliso/Laguna Coast with the Laguna Canyon Foundation.

    Ride routes starting from Oneil and using the nearby Luge and Whiting areas are easy to create without having to use Live Oak Canyon Road, but if you're looking for advice, I'm happy to offer up some suggestions.

    PM me with questions...or post them up here. I'll be lurking unless I'm out with several sick individuals in Wrightwood this Saturday.

    @MnMDan trried to pm you but for some reason it said I couldn’t!

    I’m planning on coming with my wife and two kids (4 and 2) but I’ve only got my individual membership. Do I need to bump that up (or make a donation?), and when I reserve do I just pay the $5, or $5/person?

    Also, thoughts on a super mellow dirt experience for the 4 year old? He can peddle about a mile or two on his own, so if there’s something mellow nearby I might ride with him beforehand.

    Thanks and look forward to seeing you there!

    @littlewave I have an adam's trail-a-bike that you can use for this event. It was the only option I had to get a decent ride in with my kids.

    You're ok with your wife and (2) kids being counted under your individual membership. Our goal is to make sure we don't dissuade people from coming for this reason, but it helps us get an accurate count. The patio area we have will hold between 75-100 people, and we have to respect that we don't have the #'s or the $'s to rent out the whole place for the lunch.

    As for mellow dirt in the area, there's the Trabuco Creek Wash area of O'Neill right across the street, as well as some of the horse trails in that park that are well packed down (Pawfoot Trail...Rose Canyon is at the upper right corner of the trail map). A little further to the west is the start of the Trabuco Creek trail where it leaves O'Neil Park. Its pretty a pretty mellow dirt access that might be just the thing.

    We held our Take-A-Kid Mountain Biking event in this area previously and there were enough options for everyone.
