  • Los Angeles Muni Weekend details

    Friends, for a short while, the LA and Santa Barbara mountain unicyclists have been toying with the idea of hosting a small, informal LA Muni Weekend. No website, no registration, no banquet, no competition, no t-shirts, just pure, uncut, muni action. The time has arrived.

    Date: November 10-12, 2006

    (Note: Maps to follow)

    Schedule:

    Friday: 1pm. Suicide Connector - Agoura Hills (45 Minutes West of Pasadena area).
    Meet at trail base.
    Directions: Get yourself on the 101 freeway, heading toward Agoura Hills. Exit Kanan Road and head North. Drive for a couple of miles and turn right on Hollytree, and quickly take the first left into the park. Drive to the second parking lot
    on the left.
    Type of trail: Hike up/Ride down. Moderately technical single track with some advanced sections
    Total trail time: 2-3 hours.

    Saturday: 9:30am. Southridge Park - Fontanta (1 hour East of Pasadena area)
    Meet in the Southridge Park parking lot
    Directions:Get yourself on the 10 freeway, heading east to Fontana. Exit Cherry Ave and head South. Turn left onto Live Oak Ave (just after Ralph's) and then take the next right into Southridge Park.
    Type of trail: Hike up/Ride down. Short loop with many advanced and intermediate options. Lots of sessioning potential.
    Total trail time: until you burn out.

    Sunday: 9:30am. G-Spot and Devil's Slide - Chatsworth (25 Minutes Northwest of Pasadena area)
    Meet at trail base
    Directions:Navigate to the 118 freeway, heading West toward Chatsworth. Exit Rocky Peak Road, cross the bridge, and turn right (Santa Susana Pass Road). At traffic light, turn right onto Smith Road. Drive to the end of the road, turn left
    into parking lot, and drive to the far end of the lot.
    Should you find yourself heading East on the 118, exit Kuehner Drive exit, and turn right (Kuehner Drive). At Smith Road turn left, drive to the end of the road, turn left into parking lot, and drive to the far end of the lot.
    Type of trail: Shuttle.
    GSpot is a big air MTB course. Lots of drops, jumps and steeps, along with plenty of bypass options, too. Part single-track, part downhill trials, part "playground."
    Trail time: about 2 hours.
    Devil's Slide is a wide, bumpy, downhill rock slab.
    Trail time: about 1 hour.
    Rides will be finished by appx 3pm.

    Accommodations: Sadly, we don't have much to offer in the way of floor space at our houses, so it's going to be an "fend for yourself" system. You can look up motels online - there's plenty around. We recommend you get a place somewhere near Pasadena (Glendale, Flintridge, Arcadia, Monrovia), as this is roughly halfway between all the scheduled rides.

        Scheduling was a bit tough since Southridge is a stop in the national mountain bike DH circuit. Even when NORBA isn't using it, local clubs and universities hold races there. Both adjacent weekends are taken, so we're sort of stuck on the date.
        Less talking, more riding

          Day'um, that's a pretty stiff schedule. Those trails are not as strenuous as the trails in Santa Barbara but more technical and high-flying. Good thing is the weather will be perfect. Normally those trails are blazing.

          Bring a camera. This will be one for the ages.

            Sorry, I won't be able to make it, either.

            But, I think I'm going to be in LA the following weekend, so it would be cool if we could get together for a ride on Sunday.

                prolly won't be able to make it; those early start times are not good for me as I usually start my rides after 3 to avoid harshest sun and heat. Have fun though!
                Happy Birthday Terry! Every year you get cooler, younger and unicyclier!

                      when I first heard about this, Ifigured, that this would be up in Santa Barbara on the longest and grueling trails. The drive up with those long trails would have made it impossible, but looking at the schedule, I was really surprised. Of the Friday and the Sunday ride, I might be able to do one of the short ones. HMMMMMM.... Knock on wood.

                      Cheers.

                            I'll prpbably do at least the G-spot! As the mountainunicyclingLA says: "It's almost impossible to find without help!" Haha! That was priceless!

                              It's also the perfect opportunity for you to kwitcherbitchin from the other thread, and go out and VIDEO the G-Spot in the way it deserves to be videoed. These guys are dropping some huge lines, and we'd all be obliged if you'd do us a favor and capture some of them. I appreciate all the dialog, but I'd rather see JL and Morgan and Entropy executing on those fine lines in full-motion splendor. Since they don't care to film, only Terry can make it happen.

                              Thanks in advance for stepping up!
