    As always, Big Laguna never dissapoints. Beautiful, green, flowy and so much fun and then the ride continue to the next level...Noble Canyon. It was a whoop-kicking ass ride. So Rad and So Awesome! Despite of some crashes, We all made it to the bottom with no major issues or injuries. Thank You God for that!



    We hope everyone is enjoying this video.

    Awesome!
    How long ago was this ride? What was the temps?
    @mtnbikej , how much of that did we do?
    I’m thinking it’s getting time to go back!

    Look up Pine valley for temps. Generally warmer there than in S.D by at least 10 degrees. Not really a summer ride unless we get a cold spell. I am in S.D. regularly. Temps next week are High 80s low 90s. You have to start early cuz at the end of the ride climbing out of the canyon is directly into the sun!

    Meh...you just need to plan ahead and adjust your start times. We do it year round every 6 weeks or so. If it’s supposed to be 100, we’ll obviously skip it but an expected high of 90 degrees just means a 7-7:30 ride start (at 65 degrees) and we’ll be done before it ever hits 90.

    I should add we shuttle it. We park at Pine Valley, shuttle up to Sunset TH start on Sunrise Hwy, ride into the meadow, up to Gatos Ravine, around Big Laguna, up Red Tail and back around the rest of the meadow. We usually add the ride down to Penny Pines that most people skip because you can start Noble up top there. As far as the last climb mentioned by TTB, you can skip that if it’s scorching and ride pavement back and trust me, you will still have had a killer ride. Load up and head down to Alpinevfor the best Adobada street tacos on the planet!!

    Yeah, see.....you lost me there. Climbing up Indian Creek Trail in 90*+ exposed sunshine with no breeze is not fun. So I'll wait for cooler temps.

    Riding up Indian Creek is NEVER fun. Even when we do ride up, we stay on the pavement all way up. That's not fun either which is why we shuttle and get in other stuff we don't normally do when we ride up.

    @decoguy great video and all, thanks for sharing. BUT, i gotta ask why none of you stopped and let the guy with the horses pass? I'm guessing you've never witnessed a horse getting spooked on the trail. Lucky no one in your crew got kicked in the head. the horse that had no rider seemed like it was ready to kick.

    On that scene, few riders in front of us was stopped completely once they saw an equestrian after a blind corner. We asked the horse rider to pass but he was very nice, he insisted us to keep going because it was a long train of riders. :)
