Come join me for some Como Fun!
Meet at 515am, in pedals by 530.
This ride is considered intermediate for tech (at first) and endurance though beginners with good endurance will fair just fine. Expect to be out there at least 4 hrs (to include regroup breaks)
This ride skirts the east side of the Tortolita Mtns. Meet at the Post Office at Tangerine and La Canada. A 5 mile warm up on road to dirt (goes by fast - we can chat about how awesome the rest of it will be on the way), then a 2.5 mile grueling jeep road climb that is technical in parts. You must pay to play on the downs. Single track about 7 miles in but a mile of a fun tech uphill single track to the saddle. From there it's mostly downhill (except for the parts that aren't)! The downhill is slightly tech at first with some flow and later it's mostly fast, flowy fun with a few "holy crap where'd those rocks come from" parts to keep you on your toes.
There are some new trails in the area and I'll try to get a route together to incorporate most of everything (or what I know at least) out there. Depending on who shows, endurance levels, the time, and heat factor we can ride back up and hit whatever we missed.
I'll include some example rides below though the route I make won't be exactly the same, again trying to incorporate most of the trails. Please read the description before you freak out on a couple of them as I DO NOT plan on taking us over to Catalina State Park. I just couldn't find one that I did that included what is deemed the McD's section.
Not really sure you can view a Strava ride w/out being signed up so I'll include my Garmin file on it too:

We would NOT go over to Catalina State Park but this one includes the McDs route we took. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/315943754 or http://app.strava.com/activities/43039479
Here is my friend, Beth's, McDs route (no garmin available) - http://app.strava.com/activities/53433384
Come out and play!
