I am currently in the process of moving from OC down to North County to get the wife closer to her work. I have been riding the OC trails for years and am looking forward to checking out some new dirt. We're currently in escrow on a house in Calavera Hills, so Calavera Lake will be the first area to explore since I can hit it from the driveway. Hopefully I can jump in on some group rides with you guys/girls there.

I like to hit anything from quick rides in the local OC parks to longer rides in the Santa Anas. I've never ridden anything south of Pendleton so everything in SD County is going to be fresh dirt for me. Intermediate rider and don't have a problem with climbing to earn the turns.

Here's a few pics of some of my rides:

Aliso Woods on the Ripley LS

The Single Speed at Oaks

Also get into a little bit of dirt roadie

The Wife and I like to cycle while on vacation whenever possible. This was on a 3 day tour in the Cotswolds in the UK.

And, I definitely get into night riding. Hopefully there are some after dark areas to ride down here.

Hey, welcome to DT. You've got a couple of good years in front of you just exploring and refining all lil' ol' Calavera has to offer. PLENTY of other good stuff around here too.

Rides aren't posted on DT as much as they used to be, but there is often a contingent that still does a Saturday 8:30 AM ride from Skyhaven by the lake (or sometimes Sunday...... cough).

When you want to ride, post up on a Friday afternoon, and if anyone is planning on Calavera the following day, they'll give you a heads-up. :cheers:

I guess you got in. Welcome.

For the most part, SD doesn't have the looonnnggggg climbs like you get in the Santa Ana's and you're not going to find a Telonic's or Car Wreck type trail down here either. There's some great riding but from Carlsbad, you'll be driving to get to the good stuff....Noble Canyon, Idyllwild, stuff in Murietta.
