Some of the faster groups keep a fast pace and look for the hardest trails they can find.
When is the first October ride.
How about October Sunday the 7th.
Weather out here on the High Desert has been a bit cooler but still hasn't made big transition from summer to fall temps except overnight.
I have one of my spots I'm thinking of riding to next Sunday from my house or can stage closer. It's a great place while the temps are little warm with lots of fun, sort of sandy, flowing, single track, and great washes Some good views of Edwards AFB, Jawbone, Tehachapis, and out as far as Piute mtns to the north. Nothing technical, just fun.
Probably 100-120 mile round trip from my house in Apple Valley on plated bikes, fuel available in Silver Lakes/Helendale on the outbound and return. Staging closer in, a half mile off HWY 395, a 60-70 mile loop, don't even need a plated bike.
All Invited but be warned, not noob terrain since there's some sandy spots..
I love this spot in the dead of winter when the sun is low on the horizon, sun is at your back in the morning and again in late afternoon.
