151Mtn Bike trails near Western States
- Jun 23, 2003Hi all,
My crew and pacers for Western States are also mtn bikers who would like
to fill their off hours before & during the race by getting some bike
training in. I wondered if there were locations off the course that
they could get to, do some riding and still make all my crew stops? We
are all from Southern California and don't know the area near the course
very well, and want to make sure they are riding well off of it so that
there is no DQ issues with this.
I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions on possible
locations/parks/trailheads that they could get to along the way? Or
even trail books, guides or good bike stores to ask, and where we might
find those books/stores on our drive north.
I'll be a mid to back of the pack runner, so they will have some time to
kill! They are all very good mtn bikers, so they can handle
intermediate and advanced rides. They are also accustomed to riding
trails at night.
