    HUMP DAY #125 Wildomar OHV
    When: February 5, 2020
    Adventure Bike Ride
    Casual, "Unorganized" get together at the Wildomar OHV riding area. Big bike focused, however open to all bikes and riders. This is the perfect area for noobs to gain the skills and build confidence necessary to tackle their future offroad adventure rides. BRING $5 IN CASE WE NEED TO PAY A STATE ADVENTURE PARK PASS FEE or bring an Adventure pass if you have one.
    **Bring water and a few snacks. Skills practice really is more of a workout than your average ride and Wildomar OHV will have you muscling your bike through lots twists, turns, steep climbs and steep decents. Make sure you are well hydrated and have a snack so that you have plenty of energy for the ride home.
    Riding to Margarita Peak and looping through De Luz is always an option after a few loops around the OHV Park.

    Do you happen to have any photos of the more challenging parts of this ride? I've always been curious about that area but tend to be riding alone and don't want to get in over my head!

    I actually started the ride to Margarita ahead of you all last week, but ended up turning back because I had a couple of close calls with my front end in that slick mud! Didn't feel much like having to wrestle the bike back upright alone in that shit, or get hurt and end up in the ER with everything going on right now.

    If the road is dry it is a very easy road with some gravel and a few small rocky sections
