To make you feel a little better. They closed a ton of good stuff at Skagg's <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">
They basically took out all the tech and steep sections <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">
Still fun, just not as fun as it was.

Actually Golden Gate park has alot of fun trails in it.... There use to be a lot of built up stuff in the Redwoods by the rose garden. The gardeners would tear it down and the bikers would build it back up <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

About Skaggs... I wish I would have ridden my dirt bike there back when P.I.T.S ran a club there <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

It looks like we ride the same trails...well when I ride. I live very near to Hicks road and Camden. I ride up in the Summit Road area. I used to ride the Kennedy trail a lot when I needed the work out. Now I really need the work out and I don't know if I could still make the loop. -Pete

HAhaha no I have had that happen but I didnt break anything..

I broke them on the clean up, well I think i fractured them, because all was getting better until I sneezed on the friday afterwards, I heard a pop and it felt like someone sucker punched me in the kidneys, So I waited a while and the feeling was going away, then I coughed and almost crashed my car because the pain was to much.. Went to the doctor and found out I have to cracked ribs. Now I have to wear this damn thing for 6 weeks or more depending

In the antioch area there is the Contra Loma resevour area Black Diamond Mines These parks are connected.

Fire roads. Exellent training area if you race. Long hot climbs in the summer time <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
20 mile dirt loop that I used to ride. If I wanted to go further I can ride on over to MT Diablo from balck diamond mines.

Theres a new Place that hooks up with the Los Vaceros resevour
Can't remember the name of the place but it is a park just off Marsh creek Rd.

I like the Marin Headlands because I can ride from the City and you can make the ride as long as you want ,from the regular loop up to to Tenesse Valley ,a litle longer loop down to Moss Beach or all the way at to Tam and back

Minumum 1.5 hr ride mostly shadded 5-10 loop.

Nissen Parks & Soquel trails off hwy 17 near lexinton are the BOMB!! 3-6 hrs of hard riding, it's shadded

Saratoga Gap hwy 9/35 is great too!
mostly single track. 1-4 hr ride mostly cross country ride, technicall. Cool weekend ride or just after work.

Los Gatos hills St. Jones trail- about 2+ miles up then back down.
Kennedy trail hard core training about 5 miles up , half shade.

Alpine trail in Hills of Los Altos
Hill climb 5miles up to hwy 35, then along 35/Skyline then down hill for 30 minutes.
Part Fire road and Single track .

Pacifica along hwy 1 has allot of good bombing hills and it's cool there.
