The ravine crossings and scenery are exactly what draws me there. That and it’s the longest end to end trail I have access to. Did almost 15 miles out today. About 2/3 full distance. Bailed to the road on an access trail for the way back. Shit was hurting. I was ready for a dip in that pool


Nice! And thanks.

This is the falls I was referencing to. I know the park has several but the big one is magnificent.

I know I just didn’t want to come back empty handed. I saw a trickle, had a chuckle and snapped a vid.

Craft show park side in a couple weeks. I’ll see if I can’t get the missus to hang a while and snap a few

Not this time. Was having to much fun trying to survive the prolonged tech sections to stop and take pics. But I wanted to. ;)

Ya done right. Pics interrupt the flow. Video is worse unless it’s helmet or chest cam

I did some work on my other woman the other day...

She had a rear tire that just would not seal up via sealant. I am against running a plug in a tire for regular use. To me, a plug is simply a means of getting me out of the wilds. So, I installed a new rear tire. Problem solved.

The cassette has somewhere between 1000-1200 miles on it. Three or four of the most commonly used cogs were super noisy and not meshing well with the chain, which is new. So, I replaced the cassette. She is super silent and buttery smooth in the shifts, all of them.

Next, the rotors had reached the minimum thickness (155mm). So, I replaced both.

Did that Dawn Patrol quickie this morning and she is good to go! Planning on doing Strawberry Peak loop with a bud on Monday morning.

DJ, OCD FTW!!!

Got out again yesterday after work. Perfect riding temps. Fall is trying to dominate here now. I did the entire San Raphael mountain range (which isn't much) but it included Cherry Canyon/Glendale Sports Complex and the Ridge Motorway. I, for one, enjoy fire road riding and this was a mix of that and singletrack sections. Some good urban riding to be had there. That's the Los Angeles Civic Center (Downtown L.A.) centered in the distance of the image.

16.78 miles
2546' gain

And in other news, I found a stellar deal on ebay for a NIB Gopro Hero 7 Black camera. Better videos will be coming your way...

Verdugo Mountain this morning in perfect riding temps. I had forgotten how much stronger disc brakes are in cooler weather. I almost got bucked off a few times. :D

Out here, in coastal San Diego, it will be the liquidamberis trees. They have added a touch of 'seasonal color' to our flora since their introduction a couple decades back. They seem to be complication -free since their introduction to our environment.

It takes them 6-8 weeks and then they are done for the year. Kinda nice. Gives us a facsimile of seasonal change. :)

Yeah I have no idea what seasons are like elsewhere. This is the only area I’ve ever known. They try to predict and map percent to peak fall color here just like a weather forecast. All it takes is a hard wind driven rain and it goes from 60% peak to on the ground overnight.
October is almost always nice. November we lose blue sky till February. Sky stays gray up near the lake where I am
