Hey dft, you said you did 3-4000 foot epic
descents. Did you ride up or get a lift. I ride
to get a workout, anyone can go down hill.
I can be a smart## also.

Best, John

I'm glad you ride for a workout although if that's all you're riding for I'd suggest you take up running and save yourself some $.

Here's your answer about whether DFT gets a lift, and I don't think just "anyone" can drop down this trail.

I live about 200 yards off of Calavera, so I frequent there just about everyday. I love to hit up Laguna and Noble when I have the time. Hodges is a good for an easy fast ride and Daley Ranch is a good play ground. :thumbsup: There's a ton more, but those are the ones "I" frequent.

funny, i have the exact opposite view! i think anyone can crank up a hill (i can go from completely out of shape to doing a 5000 foot climb in ~3 weeks or so) and i think the skill is descending real technical descents. yea, i both climbed and took lifts up. (not a purist) i've climbed my 41 pound+ stinky on probably 30+ rides in excess of 5000 feet total climbing.

ps. don't take my bagging replies seriously, i just love to bag on less than medicore socal rides!!:) to me, noble is honestly one of the most overated trails in the world:)

I kind of agree with you dft. Lots of fireroads and uninspiring exposed trails (I like shade). My favorite SD trail would be ATT. For more local, in the city riding, I head to LPQ or Mission Trails, both of which are starting to get boring.

I have yet to do Noble. I'll probably hit it up once it cools down this fall.

Hey dft, I was just given you a hard time. I understand how hard
it is to do what you do. If I even tried what you do, I would be in the
hospital broken into little pieces.

Best, John
