  1. I’m thankfully retiring from the military soon, but regrettably going have to move away from San Diego as well. I want to get out and enjoy as much riding as possible here while I can. I’d enjoy some company on Saturday for safety reasons and fun if anyone wants to join. I don’t have a set route for Saturday, but I would ideally like to start by going over Otay and then do a border run and then go play in Anza Borrego for a little bit. I also want to get at least one more ride up to Idyllwild as well soon. If possible, I would really like to see some back country roads that I haven’t seen before in between those areas. I’ll be on my T7. If anyone’s interested just let me know and we can hammer out the details. Thanks.
  2. Made it back home safely. That was a fun ride! Too bad about the gate on Palomar Divide. Looking forward to another weekend adventure soon.
  3. I’m also tempted to do Black Canyon prior because I want a long day! And I haven’t done Black Canyon yet. I might show up at Packards at 6:30. Please don’t wait up though if I don’t make it. If I miss it, I’ll see y’all at the Lost Valley turn out at 8.
  4. Sounds fun! I’ll keep an eye out. Looking forward to it.
  5. I would be interested in this. I would be on my T7. I’m located in Poway.

    Info on where TO and NOT TO ride

    Thank you all for the help!
  7. Once upon a time, I found some pictures here that someone posted from the Rangers that showed routes that were open or closed for riding. I tried searching here and tried Google, but I am having trouble finding the info that I'm looking for. Could someone help me out? I want to ride from Otay TT to Corral Canyon to camp in two weeks, and want as much time off pavement as possible and to get as close as I can to the border, but I don't want to go where I'm not supposed to.

    This is an edit. Ride is still on as originally scheduled.

    I gotta make one of the few riding days I get count so I might be doing that! Haha I’d loop down and do Black Mountain TT afterward and drive back to SD.

    oh that’s unfortunate. I saw it was closed two weeks ago, but the Rangers said it was, and to their knowledge has been, open through when I called them on Monday.

    Brandon and whoever else wants to ride, Saturday I’m gonna be at Starbucks at Westview PKWY in Mira Mesa (across Edwards Cinema) at 730am leaving around 8. Gonna be at the base of Nate Harrison Grade around 9am. If Palomar Divide Trail is open (Rangers said it should be), I’ll want to take that to 76 instead of s7.

    Hey Brandon, Lets do it. I’ll have the details hammered out for me next week and I can come back and drop a meeting time here that works for all of us!

    Maybe next time though! Know of any other good trails for smaller bikes around that area? I’ve been to McCain and Pine Valley multiple times and thought I would see what other areas have to offer.
