    Another installment of Ventura county riding and my last ride of the year

    With temps in the 60's and spring like condition's in the mtn's... Getting out for a ride was a must
    I got a late start... had to catch a few morning waves
    I went out the 126 today headed for the mtn's behind lake castic

    I know a nice little dirt road off the 126 that goes to lake hughs road

    There was a nice fire break road that I had to check out

    There are some great views along lake hughs rd

    I headed to the Rockinn for lunch had a beer and burger it's a great biker spot with good food

    The nov. snow was all but melted on the back side of the mtn's and the traction was great

    This bike rocks

    This is one of my favorite single tracks

    A few little snow bits along the trail
    [​IMG]

    No rocks just smooth moist dirt

    A nice G out
    [​IMG]

    Than it runs in the trees.... Sweeeet
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There's that badass bike again
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once it drops out of the tree's it gets a little tite

    Another great view
    [​IMG]

    One more trail shot... I'll be back soon
    [​IMG]

    I gased up in Fazier Park and headed for Lockwood valley rd
    [​IMG]

    The sand wash along Lockwood valley rd was calling
    [​IMG]

    The last of the dirt... I mean sand for the day
    [​IMG]

    The bike was ready for more and wanted to go right... But the day was getting short and I hit the 33 home
    [​IMG]

    The 33 looking out to the ocean the view never gets old
