Good to hear from you. I’d love to hook up with you at some point for some SoCal rough riding. For where I live in east county San Diego, summer and early fall tends to be a bit hot for the best mixed-surface exploring, so how much rough riding I do depends a bit on how lucky we are with the weather. What kind of mileage/amount of climbing do you tend to do?
Have you done any of the rides with the SoCal Rivendell Bicycle Appreciation society?
Most of them tend to be mixed surface. They are definitely on the social end of the intensity spectrum, which drives some guys crazy, but they can be fun. There are plans in the works for rides in the fall, including one in the Santa Anas to Santiago Peak.
