Knoble Shuttle Techniques

The best way IMO is to load your bike into a car or truck, & have somebody drop you off at the top!:D
Oh make sure they pick your a** up later too.

while your at it, you sure you don't want to shuttle ted willy,those guys are classic, a rider can easily climb faster than the shuttle out there.

Easy

When I lived in Solana Beach we used to go ride Noble every couple of weeks. We always rode up to the top. It would be simple to shuttle though. Have a 1 or more cars at the top or bottom in Pine Valley.

Hey Conrad359
You're dealing with a pretty tough crowd, huh?!?!?
You really don't need to shuttle Noble. Yes, it is a pretty tough climb, but it makes the experience all the more worth it.
Good luck!

Don't let these people but your chops. They're upset because some people go to Noble, shuttle it, and mess up the trail. I get upset too when cork suckers ruin the trails I ride! :madmax:

If you've ridden Noble before, and you climbed it, then you've earned a shuttle. Just follow that paved road up. If you're only going to descend once, then why not pedal up? I'm terrible at the uphills, but I've done it a few times, and it's not really that bad. Have fun!:thumbsup:

Noble's a cruiser uphill on any bike if you have a small front ring and stay on the road.

A little off topic, but I had a friend that would get his brother to shuttle him down White Mountain. That ride starts at about 4000' and tops out at around 14,300'. After all that work why would you ever have someone drive your a$$ back down? :eek:ut: Years later, dft used to do that ride with me, but he lived for the down. :thumbsup:

and you can shuttle this trail too, doesn't make you ***** if you do, or less of a rider. :thumbsup:[/QUOTE]

Umm, Granny, beg to differ. If you don't ride your bike up the hill, by definition, you're "less of a rider." Ride up or don't ride it it all...... :nono:

:rolleyes:

That's a stupid remark. Come on guys, get real. The "don't ride it at all" bit should be saved for, among others, the ones who ruin the trails.
