    OK it's on then! Or it's not.

    I'll be somewhere at about 7:30 am. Maybe to ride, or maybe making biscuits and gravy for my wife and daughter.

    If I do ride, It'll be from Canyon Vistas in Aliso Viejo - for a change.

    Well I have ridden every one of the last four days. 80.2 miles and 10,351' to be exact. Now I am sitting here all dressed up with no place to go. Jennifer told me to just take the day off. I'm sure she was kidding. Going to load up my bike and see where I end up.

    Can't commit yet. We have a house inspection Friday afternoon. I'm hoping Jennifer can get off early enough so I don't have to be here.

    I have the opportunity to do a nice 32 mile roadie path loop this Thursday evening in Boulder City/Henderson, NV.

    My concern is the upper 90 degree temps we will be riding in if I commit.

    I am basically "allergic" to heat (no joke).

    Should I risk it or should I play it safe and skip it?

    Hydrate starting now and risk it. If you die, at least you were riding. Good luck!

    Evening? should be cooler. If your "allergy" is a concern I would lean on the conservative side.

    The plan has been inked! Doing a dirt ride on Thursday with my buddy Derek when I arrive in town (Henderson, NV). Planning to hit Nitro Trails since it's close by and not too brutal. We will start at about dusk and ride into the night.

    High temps in CNF/OC look to be reasonable through the weekend, so this weekend...

    Los Piños Ridge
    No day designated. Overgrowth should not be a big factor on this trail. Loose/chunk will be, hehe. Starting/ending at San Juan TH. Early start to beat any SJ DH traffic and heat.
    If the Weezl wants to go (unknown presently), I may shuttle her up to Bluejay or top of Trabuco then ride up myself from bottom of SJ. If motor assistance works best for you, we could work out a small self-shuttle (I'm good for 4 total). Planning to not be in a hurry across the Ridge in any case. If you want to pedal up SJ/MD, have a good fitness base or LP may not be much fun. Water up at Bluejay CG.

    I know you'd hit it with us if you could.


    BTW, no need to be intimidated by the silly "experts-only" yammer in the Geoladders link or anywhere about Los Piños. The several spots that are toughest to clean are easily dismounted. The Weasel and I are not experts. I ride most all of it; I'm sure she will ride a lot less. It's all about hitting some fun, rough, techy ST in an exotic-feeling location where few tend to ride. AYE :sneaky:

    Availability for a large-ish ride looks promising for Sunday, 6/4. I am waffling about where. Help me, Obi-wan.

    Not a big ride by IMTB standards, but substantial.

    I have never visited that particular area of SoCal, in all my 50+ years of residence in same. I'm not even sure how to get there.

    Can't miss the Santa Anas since the 1970s, though - as the smog abated they appeared through the mists. They kinda stand out. :whistling:

    Oh wait, I know: Up Black Star, up Main Divide and over to Motorway, then up Maple Springs until my legs say go to hell. :eek:

    I am probably woefully underprepared, but that has never stopped me from going yet. Just know that it will be a slow pace if'n anyone wants to help.
