JRA in Sycamore Canyon
November 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
We are excited that you’ll be riding with us, however, we do need a liability waiver on file for your acknowledgment of the risks. We ask that you BRING A SIGNED WAIVER. You can DOWNLOAD our waiver by clicking on the “Tickets” link, or by going here:
Meet at the dirt parking area at the end of Wendy Rd and Potrero Rd. This is about an 19 mile ride with some extended climbing. Expect to be pedaling 2-2.5 hours. While this is not a technically challenging ride, it is very demanding for a beginner or those not used to riding long distances. Ideally, we will take minimal rest stops.
Route: Drop into Sycamore Canyon from Newbury Park side. Right on Ranch Center, left on Sin Nombre, connect to Two Foxes. LEFT on Wood Canyon fireroad, RIGHT up Wood Vista Trail, aka Backbone. Across the ridgeline and down Guadalasca Trail. Right on Big Sycamore fireroad. Left on Two Foxes/Sin Nombre back to the paved climb out to Newbury Park.
You must always come prepared with a bike in good working condition, water, a helmet, as well as any protective gear you deem necessary. It’s a good idea to bring something to eat if you haven’t eaten in the last few hours. You should bring an extra innertube in case of a flat.
We always host “no drop” rides. This means we won’t leave anyone behind. We always welcome new riders however we do recommend that you have good bike handling skills and appropriate fitness for the ride distance.
Bicycling has its inherent risks, including serious injury or death. Your participation is an acknowledgment of those risks and an assumption of liability. Riding at night requires sufficient lighting. We recommend a light with a minimum of 1000 lumens.
