Riding near Los Angeles

Looking like I may have a weekend to kill in the LA area next month between work engagements. 

Thinking a day or two of warm weather riding would be awesome right now. I've seen what there is on Trailforks but I've also heard lots of the riding in California is unsanctioned. Is it going to be a hassle for me to get in some decent rides? I'll be riding solo. 

Alternatively, I may just go skiing at Mammoth.

Hey Poz,

Never been there but why not give the guy who runs theradavist.com a shout? I think he lives in tje greater LA area.

Not that hard to find the unsanctioned trails in that area. Look for Youtubers with a Strava account. Worked for me in Laguna Beach a few years ago.

Set up a shuttle for Mt. Wilson.

Did some research last night. Looks like there is an operation that does shuttles and guides on Mt Wilson. I think I'll be taking advantage of that, prices seem reasonable too. 

Should be a good way to kill a day or two in the area.

I had a buddy who used to live in Santa Monica.  Whenever I'd go down to visit (at least once annually), we'd do a century road ride around Santa Monica and the Hollywood hills, up Mulholland Drive etc.  The views are amazing.

Have you done this? From what I can see it looks pretty good.

Yup a couple years back. Super super fun. I can't remember the name of the shuttle service but I'm sure if you Google it you'll find it.
