New Year’s Day Ride 2019

Happy New Year to all!

15 riders braved the early morning cold and snow to ride in San Manuel. One group rode the race course, two other groups road the north side of Webb Road.

As you can see, there was plenty of snow out on the trail.
The lunch after the ride was very enjoyable and warm. 🙂

Thanks to Mike B. for organizing the ride and lunch meal.

TRS New Year’s Day Ride

Details Taken from the Meetup Site Notice:
Join us for our annual New Year’s Day Ride in San Manuel. Ready to Ride (RTR) at 9 AM sharp. Depending on group size and preferences our plan is to break into multiple groups of 8 or less each with a leader familiar with the trails to keep the ride more manageable. We will be riding either the TRS San Manuel Qualifier Course and/or some of the more technical terrain on the north side of Webb Road.

Also, for those interested, TRS has made reservations at Carlota’s Mexican Restaurant in Catalina for an after ride meal at 2 PM. This “late” lunch is open to everyone riding this event. NOTE: TRS will contribute up to $300 for TRS member’s meals (you’re on your own for any alcohol). If you’re going to join us for the meal, please be back to the staging area at the school by 1 PM so we can get a good head count and all be at the restaurant at the same time.

For anyone who has not ridden in San Manuel before:

The qualifier course is a 25-30 mile C/B level ride; medium pace for me and any old farts. It will not be good for dual sport bikes or someone who has not ridden single track before.

The trails north of Webb Road are more technical with step ups/downs, deeper sand washes, lots of loose rocks in places, some tight canyons and steep hills with lots of thorny bushes thrown in just to mess with you….. this area is something for more advanced riders.

Strongly recommend a hydration pack lots of H2O, some power bars/snacks, etc. plus good protective gear and DEFINITELY some hand guards due to the cacti which is really overgrown on the trails in places.
