Anybody riding Rowher this weekend? Looking for an early morning run Sat or Sun. Coming off of knee surgery so hoping to take it somewhat easy and do a good loop hitting most of the trails, but probably skipping a couple like the switchbacks or falls where I'd be more likely to have to get off the bike and test out the doctor's work!

Not that bad with an early start. Start around 7am and you can hit a little bit of everything and get a good 40 miles in before it hits 90*.

where is this mythical rowher?
is it worth unloading the bike or should I just ride the bike there?
or maybe take up crochet?

Rowher is better than getting kicked in the nuts but not as good a hot cherry bend over

Was out there on Sunday . . . the cloud cover helped a lot as it really got hot when the sun peeked thru. Got there at 6am . . . we were back to the trucks by 10am after a good loop of most the trails in the park.

i was out there saturday training my girlfriend. we got to bouquet at 6am, i got poison oak at 6:05, rode in by 6:30. we rode until about 12:45. it stayed cool with a breeze until about that time, maybe mid 70's.

she did the king snake trail and lookout relatively without any help from me on her crf150f. if anybody has any video links of someone doing kingsnake, plz post them up. she wants to see how other ppl do the switchbacks. i dont ever film when im at rowher so i dont have anything to show her video-wise, and i couldnt find anything on google.

this girl is progressing so fast its ridiculous. i think she'll be on an orange 2stroke by the end of the year.

I left LA last night around 7p to go pick up a leatt brace off craigslist in santa clarita. The 35 miles on the 5N had my eyballs buzzing and my hands numb but Lucky for me it was only a few miles from the back entrance of rowher. I had a fun solo night ride thru rowher. stuck to main truck trail but did take my favorite single track (I think its texas trail, blue square kinda wooded near the mine) and it was very different in the dark anyways it was a fun little adventure, dead quite, super dry. Little tujunga in the dark was like space mountain so fun and nice and cool.
