  1. Where to ride Sunday taking a noob

    Or there's the outer loop of Corral Canyon. Very noob friendly: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/32.7169673,-116.500947/32.7226306,-116.558478/@32.7115162,-116.5540025,8310m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m14!4m13!1m10!3m4!1m2!1d-116.5612395!2d32.7293402!3s0x80d970ffa08ec8c5:0x49343b2c1876c843!3m4!1m2!1d-116.5963666!2d32.7044826!3s0x80d971cf7ede3d5d:0xe9fc52e0d0dddadb!1m0!3e0
  2. Where to ride Sunday taking a noob

    Start at Pine Valley cul-de-sac. You need an adventure pass to park there. Circle around Bear Valley Rd. Here's a map. Maybe others know the area better: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/32.8164115,-116.5328447/32.7539392,-116.5172293/@32.7780573,-116.5114425,9975m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m14!4m13!1m10!3m4!1m2!1d-116.512897!2d32.8023588!3s0x80d97a1fac079711:0xd0ae7ad833f1647c!3m4!1m2!1d-116.5225874!2d32.7422427!3s0x80d970cfd119263d:0x3587d79355593d18!1m0!3e0
  3. If the goal is to upload a google street view path directly along the straight lines of the international border, you would have to fill in the gaps by either hiking/climbing along those sections that are not ride-able. You could also fill in the no-road gaps using a drone with a 360 camera (but that wouldn't really look like street view). So, ride the border where you can and upload those sections first, then go back and fill in the gaps. It would be a hell of lot of work. Even if you never filled in the gaps, it would be cool to be able to view the sections that are ride-able. Also, that google street view "loaner" camera cluster is huge compared to the consumer 360 cameras hitting the market now. Good luck!
  4. ALTA Redshift Ebike

    Looks like fun but only an hour of fast paced off-road ride time. https://www.dirtrider.com/2018-alta-redshift-ex-review#page-4 They make a supermoto that looks cool too. https://www.altamotors.co/redshiftsm/
  5. Could have been. We had two KTMS, one red Honda, and my white Honda XR.
  6. Nice time in the desert today. Sunny and 83 degrees. Bubbagums led the group on a quickly planned ride. Leader got a flat but it was quick change at the trestle and go. The other two riders are buddies I grew up with in UC. The wait for burgers at the Blu-In was 60 minutes but worth it. Here's the 5 minute gopro video:
  7. Once you get past the wall prototypes you can ride without an escort. Modified route below dips down to border fence/road right before Tecate giving you a little extra border line time. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/32.5822623,-116.9125759/32.5784438,-116.6287275/@32.5821897,-116.6749214,6903m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m29!4m28!1m25!3m4!1m2!1d-116.8674717!2d32.5626464!3s0x80d940f23029602d:0x6aa2f31d084651cf!3m4!1m2!1d-116.8479648!2d32.5583024!3s0x80d940f23029602d:0x6aa2f31d084651cf!3m4!1m2!1d-116.7557724!2d32.5727696!3s0x80d96b4dc95b9ff3:0x5b81e11eb829f660!3m4!1m2!1d-116.7107795!2d32.5732885!3s0x80d96b4dc95b9ff3:0x5b81e11eb829f660!3m4!1m2!1d-116.667073!2d32.5744918!3s0x80d9132d6ff0cd1f:0x31d688312e45a723!1m0!3e2
  8. It is not a straight shot from IB to Yuma. The existing fence (and associated dirt road) starts and stops. You can see this on Google Maps. Assuming you get a Border Patrol escort you can ride from IB to about a mile past the existing border wall prototypes at the foot of Otay Mtn. On this initial section from IB, you would have to be escorted through the double fence security zone and you would have to circumvent the San Ysidro and Otay international border crossings themselves. With an escort it would be a pretty straight route. The border fence/road ends at Otay Mtn and you would have to venture inland up and over Otay Mtn and ride to Barrett Junction and then eventually to Tecate where you could pick up the border fence/dirt road again. This is the route which takes you away from the border from Otay Mtn to Tecate: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/32.5822623,-116.9125759/32.5784438,-116.6287275/@32.5574518,-116.8633837,26144m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m9!4m8!1m5!3m4!1m2!1d-116.7529336!2d32.572164!3s0x80d96b4dc95b9ff3:0x5b81e11eb829f660!1m0!3e2 From Tecate you can ride at least all the way to Campo along the border fence. To log your route you can use a 360 camera mounted on your bike or helmet and upload to Google maps/street view as described here: https://www.google.com/streetview/publish/

  11. I am thinking about running out there early morning solo in my White Tundra with a XR440 on a Joe Hauler. Maybe the straggler group will have me? (Don't wait if I don't make it). Hey, will the Desert Dash GPS track download cleanly (via USB) into one of these old-school Garmin 60CSx? Sometimes I have to break the tracks into small sections in order to get it to download all portions of the trail.
  12. Meetup time & location?
  13. Woods type riding near San Diego?

    When you say "Tecate" do you mean the Laguna Hanson area? Or is there a forest closer to Tecate, Mexico?
