Hey all - Well it's time I posted my first event as an Event Host so here goes. Beginning riders are welcome and encouraged and I will adjust the speed, distance and route as necessary.
The speed will be that of the slowest rider - which likely could be me :) If the group is large enough, I will either split the group or add a sweeper but no one will be left behind.
The distance is planned to be around 14 miles. We will start at the Sunset Dr. trailhead and turnaround at Hernandez Hideaway. We can perhaps ride further to the base of the first climb before the the dam or even to the dam depending on the time and input from the group.
The route will be the typical Lake Hodges route - that is, the bike path from the Sunset Dr. parking lot to the footbridge and the fire road from the footbridge to to the boat ramp parking lot with the option of the taking the high singletrack. Then the singletrack from the boat ramp parking lot to Del Dios Community Park and then on to Hernandez Hideaway. This also will depend on input from the group.
If the response is good I hope to make this a regular, perhaps weekly event. The ride is designed as an option to the Los Penasquitos Canyon rides for those who live further up in North County, want to start their ride a little earlier or just want to ride a different trail. We also will vary future routes to include the Highland Valley singletrack, the Mule Hill area and perhaps parts of the South Side of Lake Hodges.
