Is there any dual sport roads near Glendora Mountain Road? (GMR)? Anything up in the Angeles Crest? Hopefully a way to get there from glendora.

The weather was great! Cool enough to be geared up and it stayed warm after dark. Not too many more days of that.

I've got a 4 day weekend this weekend. Heading out sometime on Thursday, just haven't decided where yet. Was pondering the sandy beach and senioritas in San Felipe.

No
Lots of really good stuff for mountain biking but nothing for anything with a motor in it

Came back over 154 into Santa Barbara.
I was doing that route last Sunday but I could tell it was gonna be a bad karma ride. First a car I was passing in Ojai decided to make a no-signal left across my lane into a driveway - just managed to swerve around him with the hammer dropped. Then I ran into some guys at Ozena Ranger Stn on Harleys, one whom was recovering from a gravel crash out on Lockwood Valley Rd that destroyed his shifter. The second guy there had been passing a truck when THAT guy did a left turn in front of him, so he was rattled up too. By the time I got to Ventucopa, my right mirror had flown off the housing. I'm like - that's it, I'm turning around. Too much bad juju...just didn't feel right.

Usually I'm on the 33 and those roads almost every weekend. My canyon escape country.

You musta missed this guy crossing your path !




Never a bad thing to listen to your Guardian Angel....

I actually took a peek at Ojai Hospital on the way up.. Usually I see bikes parked there later in the day, visiting the latest Highway 33 victim.

Ventura area to San Luis Obispo (dirty)

Hello all,

Was going to start a new thread but thought this might work in here, I am meeting up with a group of people that I have been riding street with for years in SLO the 26-28 OCT. We meet up, ride the area but most of the time relax at one of the brewery's in the area,

Anyway, normally I take the street bike and ride 33 to the 58 out there but would like to take the 500 exc this year. I have been looking at maps and looks like I could ride 33 then take some dirt roads through the Las Padres National Forest.

Do you know if some of the main looking roads such as Sierra Madre Rd (32s13), Cable Corral Rd, Agua Escondido Rd (30502) and Avenales Ranch Rd. are open.

If you have other route ideas that would be great, if anybody wants to come along that is great too, big bike friendly lol.

Gas is going to be an issue for me and I do not want to be way out on the route and find a road that is closed.

Thanks for your help.

not sure if there's a lot of dirt road or trails along the 33. that goes through to another major road. i haven't saw anyone posted a RR. before the big fire near cuyama, we were able to ride across all the way to the 101.


usfs should be able to give you the latest condition.

have fun out there.


p.s.

every year on january, we do the carrizo-pozo ride. the next one, thinking of 3 days of riding, lots of areas to see and enjoy.

Weekend trip to San Felipe complete. After some front tire issues (that Metzeler Sahara 3 is headed to the trash now), I finally got to San Felipe on Saturday morning. You need to hit Baja when it's warm, put your toes in the warm water, and bikini watch.

I didn't take a lot of pics. The ones from the beach can't be posted here.

I did get a pic of my VIP parking:



Oh, and apparently US Border Patrol doesn't believe that anyone would ride to San Felipe for an overnight trip and not come back loaded down with tons of illegal shit. That was an hour in the heat that I'm not getting back.

Murphy's Law

Got carried away... loose sand/dirt cut short my trip. Broken instrument panel and rear view mirrors, nursing bruised shoulder... But the scenery is awesome.
