OWOWOWOWOW....don't get hit with the rock salt. That bloody well hurts for daaaaaays.

Do people even do that anymore?

Email me cvdavis@lakeheadu.ca

advanced rider that has never been in the area
anyone with plans to ride during those days?.....

hopefully it gets warm enough to melt the ice on the road/trails after xmas, we can invite macuser to come and join us.

hey aaron, chances are it will rain on xmas day. if not, go ahead an post your plan. i'm not sure if i can ride that day....terranova discovered a trail on the bear divide. no snow or ice, may be worth investigating since he didn't go all the way since he was alone.

Hope there is some meltiness in this weather system.

There is a great 280 mile loop from the 15/138 out to Randsburg and back. Should be ice and (mostly) snow free by Saturday. About 3 hours to Randsburg, lunch, three hours back and whatever travel time to the 15/138. It's an all day ride, but fairly fast terrain with quite a bit of sand.

If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll forward a google earth map and strategic coordinates. I won't be going.........prepping for Baja and

i googled the area, bear divide becomes santa clara truck trail. then it branches to several roads. one of them will take us down to the veterans memorial park in sylmar. others heading towards san fernando and the I14. not sure if there are gates????????? the altitude is about 2500 to 2800, and i wonder if snow (or ice) will be present.

terranova can give us the first hand report.......

Where it comes out at the 14 and san fernando, is for mountain bikes or hiking. No motorcycles. Once a year the old Dick Allens(now new owner) would have a dual sport ride thru there all the way to newcombs.

Is that where the ranger station is ontop of Little Tujunga? Just across the street from SCD? If so, I thought that road was gated?
