Hi everyone, it’s official – Sunday May 23rd we’ll be hosting (with the gracious help of The Path Bike Shop) a group ride and BBQ. Funds raised will be going to help out Mtnbikerider Wes Castro as he recovers from a shattered hip. So far the progress has been good with Wes making significant strides in the past few weeks.

As soon as it was announced that The Path Bike Shop group ride would be hitting Turnbull Canyon in Whittier, Tony and I were stoked. Located in Whittier, CA Turnbull Canyon is Tony and Kim’s home trail and serves as our Tuesday after-work ride. So to say we’re familiar with the trail would be an understatement.
This past Sunday, Tony and I joined the crew from The Path Bike Shop on their group ride. With all the recent rains in Southern California, I’ve learned a lot about picking trails that don’t turn into mud fests. In particular, those trails of decomposed granite or shale seem to be the way to go as they filter water particularly well.
This past Sunday, Tony and I decided to take advantage of The Path Bike shop’s Sunday ride. The ride location changes week to week so be sure to check The Path Blog for the current week’s ride. It’s a no-drop ride and has riders from pretty much every skill level but typically takes on at least intermediate terrain to keep the more advanced riders satisfied.
