The Road Warrior
I'm getting tired of seeing people around every turn, seeing them walking over MTB features, running 5 unleashed dogs, pushing strollers, multiple little kids, and dirty looks from old women with hiking poles that refuse to move from the middle of the trails. I'm a transplant from Northern California, so maybe I'm spoiled, but this is getting out of hand. Are all of the Santa Monica mountains like this? Or am I just seeing the main trails?? I'm thinking that I need to go deeper and explore more. As it is, I ride from Westwood up to the trailhead, and don't spend any more than 8 or so miles on the actual trails before riding home. There's just something I don't like about driving to the trailhead so that I can spend more time in the dirt. I do a lot of road riding, so dirt riding isn't all that I do. I'm thinking that's what I'll have to do, though.
