SoCal SSers/Fixies and any gearies that wanna join in, planning on doing a ride in Sycamore Cyn (off of PCH just west of Malibu) on Sunday morning at 8am. If you're interested, park in the dirt turnout on PCH about 200 yds west of the gate.

This is a perfect ride for recent SS converts, or those that don't have Ned or Lance's lungs. The climbs are moderate. Nothing too technical. Just a fun batch of singletrack begging to be ridden.

Would like to climb Guadalasco and descend Backbone. Planning on riding Coyote and Two Foxes, et al. Maybe two routes up the hill for twice the fun! IM me if interested.

ps. It's posted on the SoCal calendar.

Already signed up

for another ride,but this sounds like the perfect ride to start getting my ss legs back into shape. We did SART last weekend and I tried to see how much I could do in the middle ring and got all the upper section,but after the the option of climbing the fireroad to the store or climbing the singletrack, we chose the singletrack and the trail got the best of me and I finally succumbed to the dreaded little ring. After not riding the ss for a while it seems like you lose your legs for it and those first few rides are downright torture, Anyways have a good one.

Hey Mike, sorry you couldn't make it. Great conditions and hardly anyone out there until the end of the ride. Guadalasco and Backbone are in fantastic shape. When you have hardpack with great traction, it feels like I could ride all day. Next time.

Bummer I missed this one. It seems everytime I head out that way we end up riding something new or at least a little different. Next time I'll make it out there.

Planning on doing Backbone/Newton Cyn in the near future. Also going to link Los Robles with Sycamore Cyn. Either ride will be plenty of miles with a load of climbing. Probably ride the gearie on these two.

I'll give you a heads up when it approaches.

Wise man who stick neck out while making big boast usually end up looking like turkey on chopping block. ;)

How's your daughter? Better I hope.
