1. THE “LOST BOYS” SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE SANTA ANA’S

As some of you may know, two of our club members and a couple of their friends ending up spending the night in the Santa Ana’s because they did not allow enough time to complete an evening ride down an unfamiliar route.

Here’s a little background on the “trail” they took:

Do not, I repeat do not even think about trying to find this trail and ride it. It is an extremely technical trail that has not been maintained since Edison first cut it and the bottom is loaded with poison oak.

2. MONIQUE’S 2ND NORBA NATIONAL MARATHONS SERIES TITLE

For the second year in a row Monique is the female NORBA National Marathon Series Champion. In next week’s news we’ll have coverage of her fundraiser to send her to the World Championships in B.C.

6. RACE TEAM MEMBERS LESLIE AND BRIAN COMPETE IN THE BRIANHEAD EPIC 100

As you know from our past news Calvin Mulder also competed in the event and wrote a race report on it. Leslie was a little late in getting her report in but I think you’ll find her perspective on the event interesting:

7. THE SAGE SCRUB AND CACTUS HILL TRAILS IN WHITING RANCH HAVE BEEN RE-OPENED

Thanks to the efforts of many volunteers, including biker riders, equestrians and hikers, both the Sage Scrub and Cactus Hill Trails have been re-opened to public use.

Much labor went into the project which was completed on two consecutive Saturday evenings, August 13, & 20.

I wish to extend my sincere thanks to all who participated in making this effort a successful one.
