Thumb Welcome plinker !

Yes the AHC is a good year 'round ride although most of the kids 'n squids get too cold and drop out at this time , you'll find it very nice indeed to ride up to Wrightwood for a nosh .

Or , just a fast blast up to Newcombs Ranch for coffee or brekkie and back again before work or those weekend honey-do's .

WELCOME to Sunny Southern California ! .

The good folks here have regular outings to Rowher Flats and etc. you should look into if you're an off pavenent typ .

the desert is prime for cold season riding. mojave has plenty of good areas to practice and ride. maybe 1 more ride before it gets hot. then in the summer, we head out to higher elevations like big bear, mammoth and the coast.

rowher flats is a good local place to ride anytime and convenient.

i organize rides here but the death valley noobs rally is keeping me busy.

good chance starting this april, i will post at least 1 group ride a month. most rides are fire roads , double tracks, dirt, gravel, etc. mostly big bike friendly.....trust me...hahaha.

i heard from a good source that they will open angeles forest.... i will believe it if i see it.
im up for easy rides Joel.

I'm a bit far from you, but happy to meet up sometime. My GSA see's about 99% road riding. (dirt riding w/ the designated bikes)
I often do a day ride up through Angeles Crest, lunch at Newcomb's, ..or up through Big Bear and around.

Hi Noel It'd be great to ride with you again. Yeah, as long as we keep moving and don't have any problems I hope to be off the mountain by sunset. We shall see.

Big bike friendly with a competent rider. NooB friendly for small-mid bikes.

I'll post a link to rider914's recent ride report with pics. He rode it last weekend.
