  1. First time riding there. Holy mother of God this place is awesome!! Pine Valley/Corral Canyon used to be my favorite place to ride, but this place is now on top. Good mix of flowwy single track, rock climbing, etc. Anyone know of a way to drop down into Carrizo Creek wash from up there? Looks like it’s possible. Asking for a friend...
  2. Sorry for the last minute post. Anyone hitting the desert tomorrow? I'm thinking the usual loop out of Borrego Springs or maybe something different.
  3. Ah sorry meant tomorrow, Friday. Changed the title.
  4. The desert dried up pretty quickly. No power washing required after New Year’s Eve ride.

    Latest Comms Update But wait... there's more!

    Ah. I’ll have to do some experimenting. I did a static test using it to transmit from my baofeng and receiving on my yaesu. Haven’t tried at speed yet. If it turns out to be too noisy, I’ll buy the mic a la cart from rugged radios and solder it on. It’s only $30 https://www.ruggedradios.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=211

    I picked one of these up to use with my Baofeng. https://ebay.us/kaOq5n Doesn't sound that bad from the QSO's I've made. I haven't figured out a way to mount the PTT in a way that I feel comfortable during a get-off. I'm thinking of just putting it to my backpack strap since my hydration pack mouthpiece is there anyway. I've convinced other riders in my group to snag their ham radio license and join in on the fun! K6KDC aka Kyle aka Kilé
  7. Desert is perfect right now. Could be a little drier, but the washes aren't terribly muddy. Just ride in the tracks that have already been ridden and don't gas it too hard. Plan on spending an hour or two power washing your bike afterwards.
  8. I'll be riding New Year's eve if anyone wants to join. Route will be similar to the one I did yesterday. Conditions are perfect! Meet at the mall at 10am.
  9. I'm thinking about going this year. Anyone else?
  10. Headed up to big bear tonight and riding in the morning. Anyone want to join?

    Big Bear Tomorrow 9/6

    Normally I would, but he was going the opposite direction and relatively close to the trailhead. If I see riders stopped or lugging along, I’d stop for a chat.

    Gold, John Bull, Holcomb Creek. Were you on a 2 smoke? Passed someone coming down John Bull on what looked like a KTM 300.

    Usually get a little studio cabin at Lakewood Cabins.
  15. Good ride on Sunday, Ken! Sorry for distracting you from the paint job. I felt really bad afterward. I’m still available on Friday and want to help out. I’ll carry the paint this time. I plan on being in the cul de sac around 730.
  16. Cleared some bushes today. Am I doing it right?
  17. I was out there today and it looks like there was a little bit of maintenance done on the 1. Someone went in there with hedge trimmers and cleared the first little section of it.
  18. Anyone up for a Big Bear ride? I'll be there Friday and getting an early start. Hardish routes. I'll be on a KTM 500.

    Bear Valley

    Yeah it’s pretty boring now. I wish they’d make a single track trail from the cul de sac to the start of kernan.
  20. Any word on when this will be rescheduled? I’d like to help out. Many of the smaller singletrack trails in Corral Canyon are so overgrown right now that they’re nearly unridable.
  21. Headed up to Big Bear on Thursday to explore. Looking for single track, but might end up just being fire roads. Anyone want to join?

    5/30 - Big Bear Thursday

    Have any gps tracks? kyle@kyledickerson.com
  23. I’m in, unless my red sticker buddy magically produces a new chain and sprocket, then I’ll be headed to Superstition.
