    Just curious about the off roading in SoCal, is it just graded dirt roads?

    I know open land is tough to come by with how populated the place is.

    Only took one picture but others have done a very good job of documenting the ride.
    This part of the group is done with the dirt, signs have been read, and we're getting ready to head home.

    Don't let the crowded towns and cities fool you - the mountains and deserts and mostly empty.

    There's lots of dirt roads around that aren't graded, as well some off road parks and single track in places.

    Legal road in So KA, wouldn't call it "graded":

    They're not always easy to find, but they're out there.

    :rofl

    i made sure the private property behind the barbed wire stayed dry and no trespassing was involved.

    Socal has everything from sand, rocks, hills, mountains, single tracks and ohv areas. People forget it is still the desert just like Nevada.



    we want more!

    It was fun indeed, and few who really chased me loved the pace. I’ll remember to brief the turn etiquette before the ride rather than after for the next time :photog

    Smugmug does host videos well, it is advrider that only allows YouTube and Vimeo so far.... unless I missed a turn somewhere :hmmmmm

    P.s. thank you for the awesome photos!

    Pretty great stuff in this thread over the last couple of weeks.

    I don't have time to put together a long ride report like the others recently posted, but I'll share my favorite pic (not my shot) from the trip to Mendocino NF that I did with a couple of buddies over Memorial Day weekend:
