Any cyclists here?
I ride road, mtb, and cyclocross and follow each rabidly.
Mostly interested in classics season and 'cross in terms of professional riding.

I used to MTB twice a week. Primarily in Laguna, Whiting Ranch, the Santa Anas and the occasional San Gabriels ride.

I need to get down to Laguna and Whiting more. When I MTB I usually go up to Fullerton Loop, or ride over to Oaks. I live in Old Towne Orange yet find myself preferring to drive over to the Loop. I also would like to try Harding Truck Trail sometime.

I used to ride the Fully Loop every Thursday night as well, we had some really fun group rides there that may or may not have involved Tecate's. Oaks is also really fun. I've only ridden Harding once, we went up Harding and over to Joplin, down Joplin to Old Camp, out of Old Camp down to the Luge, down the Luge and back to the cars parked at Cooks Corner.
I live in Long Beach so getting to the trails early in the summer was kind of rough. I sold my latest bike last year, an Ibis Mojo SL. It was my favorite bike, I had many over the years.

Why'd you stop riding?
I really want to do HTT soon. Just up and back down. I am not much for stuff like the Luge.

I have done the loop a few times over the last few months. However, I prefer Turnbull canyon in Whittier(Able to start from my house without driving is nice) for my MTB rides. Much better workout(ie: climbing) and some pretty good single tracks.
If anyone wants to do Turnbull Canyon I am more the happy to show them around.

Nice Muddy, I've never done Turnbull for MTB. I will need to take you up on that sometime.
