Well shit, I was going to be racing the fontana scene this winter but my work is shipping me to a wonderful land called Stockton!! Does any body know if there is any riding even remotely close to this hell?

Any trails are better than no trails I hope.

If its Stockton, CA you aren't that far out of the bay area. If you have a vehicle you can drive to the trails. May take you 30 to 40 mins or so to get there, but I don't typically think of that as too out of the Way to ride.

Stopped at a Krispy Kreme there once. It has a water tower and a river too.

Stock is close to many great trails to ride in. You can find trails on Mt. Diablo, in Brentwood, in Oakland, and a bunch just around Stockton too. I have a few friends who ride up there, when you move, let me know I can get you into contact with them.

I'm from Stockton, Northstar if your a fan of high speed dirt is your best bet. If you wanna cruise on a roadbike go to Patterson Pass road from Tracy to Livermore.

In my youth I did more pool freestyle than ride the area trails.

Yeah AB, i'm heading up there on Wednesday, Start my year off right ya see. Looks like i'll only be there 1 month or 2 so It's going to be wet the whole time I imagine. Sucks. But if you friends do ride this time of year it would be great to get in contact with them.

Thanks
