Rides this coming weekend? 4/20 & 21?

Postby ahdoman » Thu Apr 18, 2013 2:25 pm

Anybody up for a ride this weekend? I can do Saturday as long as I'm done by 1 pm and I have all day Sunday. I'd like to get back into Drinkwater again. We found a pretty cool single track last Sunday. I'd like to explore it further.

The climb into Drinkwater off San Francisquito is a little steep but it's a nice wide trail. Nothing too hairy. Put it into first and just "tractor" up the hill.

al1979,

I've been riding most of my life in Florida and just moved out to California so I'm just starting to learn how to ride big hills. Riding hills is a skill that must be acquired if you want to go to all the fun spots to ride. Drinkwater is a medium climb but like ahdoman said, its nice and wide. The first hill is medium in slope but there is another hill right after it that is slightly more steep and about twice as long as the first hill. Both hills are great to practice your hill-climbing skills on though. The guys riding with you will be very helpful as well. I have received great technique tips from both Mark and ahdoman when riding with them. Come on out on Sunday for a ride. Im sure youll enjoy yourself. By the way, drinkwater is isolated and very beautiful. You wont see many people out there.

Just know that you may get a few scratches on your bike and have fun. Take it slow. I dont know if I can make it yet but I hope so. No man left behind...... Ever! :up: :ride:

al1979 - If you don't want to ride all the way into Castaic we can meet you at the Drinkwater staging area on San Francisquito. We're going to end up there anyway. It's about 1/2 mile after the pumping station. Let us know.

It looks like we're going to leave SB's at 8 so we should be there by 8:30.
