I have been searching for about an hour, scanning over some of the epic rides that are available here in the San Diego area on MTBR and MTBikeBills website. As of now, I am staying near Lake Hodges.

I found the Archipelago Ride done by MTBikeBill and another done by Mealsonwheels in Pine Valley/Cuayamaca (sp?).

I was wondering if anyone had the GPX file for either of these rides or another epic ride that you know of. My email is just my handle (azepic........) @gmail dot com.

I don't have a gpx file, but have you searched on geoladders? You may be able to piece some routes together to try the Cuyamaca>Indian Creek>Noble loop.

Perhaps I could do something early morning, like a Black Canyon to Hodges route that Bill did in the Archipelago Ride a few weeks ago. 3-4 hours on Friday.
that would work well for me. let me know, i'm going to get my bike ready tonight.

Thank you guys for the info. I responded to your PMs and am looking at your suggestions.
Didn't I see you and your significant other up in the Redwoods last summer, sometime in July?

I detailed the route for the epic meals and I did in that thread. I am not in shape right now for an epic or I'd try and play tour guide on one of these rides. I am hoping to get out to Noble Sunday AM very early just for a quick ride up Indian Creek and down Noble, so maybe I'll see some of you all out there!

there are no epic rides in SD, but noble would be the closest thing to one.
los pinos in OC, that is alot more epic.

ha, think i rode part of that yesterday.... we rode from a dirt parkinglot down some long dirt road, then up holy jim, then climbed some fire road over the peak, and down a trail i think was called los pinos to a road, then rode the road a few miles back to the dirt lot. Some good riding, holy jim was a fun climb on the single speed.
EDIT: i think it might have been joplin, not los pinos.

I've climbed almost every peak in San Diego County...

I've found the most breath taking - and challenging if need be - trails in the Cleaveland National Forest (30-50 min east of san diego).

Noble Canyon being the first....awesome hr + descend from the starting point on sunrise hwy (S1?). This takes you through every technical- descent and fast single track runs in one single masterpiece of a trail..

While camping at the laguna campground just east of this trail there is a breath taking (not technical, mostly flat single track) meadow trail that takes you through lakes, cows roaming and eating off pastures, squirrels running besides you, forest to one side...flat meadow on the other.... some of the most inspiring riding ever...
