What an awesome weekend I had. Jeff Sherman was down for the weekend from Kernville for the weekend and Bill O’neil came down from West LA as well. Friday was yummy grub and tasty beverages at Stone Brewing Company. Saturday was Big Laguna – Noble Canyon ride. We had a sizable group of 11 and did it in semi-slacker fashion by cutting out the Pine Valley and Indian Creek segment and doing a point-to-point ride versus the classic climb-o-rama Tour De Noble.
We started thing off up top by taking the Redtail Roost singletrack down into Aqua Dulce, from there we worked our way up to the top of Los Gatos Ravine. We did of course play on a log or two in the process.
Trickier than it looks.
Once on Los Gatos we stopped and played on an feature or six. Here is “Dental Plan”
Some more of “Dental Plan”
There was some log ridage and log pileage to be played on.
Once down on Big Laguna Meadow. We went clockwise around to the west side where we found the “Water of the World” pond almost frozen over.
Halfway up the west side we cut back over to the east side of the meadow at the lake and the went up the meadow counter-clockwise. There was some log chunkage found to play on before making our way over to Noble Canyon.
Noble Canyon was as awesome as always and the there was some log airage to be had.
As well as some Rock Airage.
Stairway to Hell did not disappoint.
A bit of roman wallage on Extra Credit.
After polishing off the trail we were treated to the first release of Kernville Brewing Company’s Chocolate Porter creation courtesy of JFSH…….Tasty Stuff!
A mighty fine day on a bike with old and new friends a like.
