    Great ride despite all the little mishaps.



    First it was my turn

    Maybe 5 min into the ride I did this.

    When the group first hit dirt I dropped back a ways to stay out the choking dust. Really fun road BTW, nice roller coaster hills. When I picked up the pace I crested this hill and in the shaded area couldn't see the hole until it was too late. The prescription sunglasses and the instant shade didn't help.

    Let's give the local mountains a break, and try something different.

    Carrizo is 100% dirt, so the only pavement is ride up to get there and the ride home. There are only a few hard core dirt riding there and have bypasses, so a ds big bike will be very much at home, though thumpers will have a blast.
    This is a mellow ride, a ride in the park....really!...:deal

    Those who are on a small bikes, you may trailer or truck the bikes and meet us at a place near the entrance to the park.

    Here's the plan.

    1. LA riders meet at Roxford off the FW5 @ 7:00AM
    2. Pick up the riders from Ventura and Simi at Cactus Patch @ 7:30 AM
    3. Breakfast in Ojai @ 8:00AM at Deer Lodge Restaurant on HW33
    4. Ride up on north on HW33 @ 9:00AM
    5. Carrizo @ 10:30AM.
    6. Lunch @ 1:00PM

    Breakfast at Deer Lodge

    Not sure if my brother will be out again next weekend, he lives in carlsbad. But you never know. He will not like riding on the 908/606 on that much slab....

    Sounds like a nice ride. I am only 15 min to Moorpark....about time you come in my neck of the woods.:clap
