    Finally some more big bike riders! I'm going to WMRS on 8/5 and will be doing big bike friendly trails. Going back to Kennedy Meadows too on 8/19 and know the big bike friendly trails now. I do Cleveland National Forest down here in OC but found some good trails up by you not too long ago on a RawHyde ride off the 138 I think; something called old ridge route or something in the Angeles forest. 23 miles of dirt fire roads ending up around Lake Hughes I think. Joel knows them much better than I do though.

    randal, we missed the turn off since our ride leader was using the old fashion style, always looking for a sign at the corner. good i had your gps track, and we found the entrance after turning around. we owe you a few beer and appreciate you taking the time giving us advices.

    eric, wmrs is on aug 5, 6 and 7.....:wink:

    once we get some cooler weather, i'll organize a local big bike ride. maybe we do something sooner, do big bear perhaps after kennedy meadows.

    I don't think he really bought it. I think he just snagged pictures from the net.
