I got a late start but checked out Wrightwood too on the DRZ.Looked for dirt along the way and found the campground entrance opposite Inspiration Point station.That road goes a good 10 miles to a campground through the pines, the last mile or so is a blast. Saw lots of bikes but not as many as I expected.

glen helen mx national

back to the race at the grid







coming down this hill is harder than it looks


a hard sharp right at the bottom of the hill




this other downhill run didn't look bad cuz we're watching from a 2-story high bridge






aerial acrobatics in between the races

a short refreshement break at newcomb's




took upper big t to avoid the crazy bottom part of the crest


jon, you gotta love the hid, i'm impressed; check out jim's...


closer to home at big t....jim and john right behind


i like repeating myself by saying...we're all fortunate to have the angeles forest as our backyard. then add up some good people...life's good..

another great weekend....

after lunch ride the 138 to Mt Emma to Angeles Forest Hwy to some powerline roads to Wzltech Trail to 4N 24 or take the Crest back to Pacifico , Lynx, Wzltech Trail to 4N24 etc......

Wrightwood has gas.
all the twisties and dirt before that would be WAY under 100 miles.
total possibly for the day could be close to 200 miles.

all pretty easy roads, would like to keep a good pace so it doesn't turn into a full moon ride minus the full moon.


LET'S RIDE !
Bump for the Monday ride, Who's in?

Great pics of the National boys! Sorry I did not join y'all, the wife laid on the "you sure have been spending a lot of money lately" guilt trip and I already swapped out to a new knobbie I'd rather use on dirt. So I decided to watch Villipoto smoke everyone on TV, I don't know why Stewart is not racing though, and if he doesn't I don't think anybody can touch Ryan, the kid hauls the mail!

so who's in tomorrow morning?

so far i count...

C-dubb
terranova
Ben99r1
David brow


keep in mind, the route i posted is a suggestion AND you can bail at anytime since we will be on a highway (Angeles Forest Hwy and Angeles Crest Hwy) or near one when on dirt.
Gas should NOT be an issue with well under 100 miles between meet up and Wrightwood.

(P.S. i edited the possible route after lunch, i meant to say Big Pine to Mt Emma, NOT 138, the signs say to the 138 on Big Pine and i mistaken that )
