Join us for a beginner and slow intermediate ride through beautiful Upper Las Virgenes and Cheeseboro Canyons ( area.

We'll start our ride at the trail head 'Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve' (What a mouthful). After riding into Las Virgenes Canyon, we down shift to make the climb up to Cheeseboro via what we "affectionately" call "Pump Road" (Las Virgenes Canyon connector). From there we will ride to Cheeseboro Canyon and up to Sulpher Springs and possibly to Shepard Flats, depending on the group. Then it's back to the cars the way we came. (The full ride is 9.5 miles with 1150' of climbing; if we turn around at the end of the fire road, the distance will be 7.2 miles with 850' of climbing.)
