We have had a lot of questions regarding this years “Over the hump Series”, which the 1st of 12 races kicks off May 25th. This is a great local mid-week race and a good venue for your first mountain bike race or to cure the mid-week racing bug. It is definitely a lot of fun and very spectator friendly for the family and friends to come out and cheer you on. Just ask us at one of the next rides or go to www.overthehumpseries.com
Weather forecast for this Wednesday 04/21 is not looking so good so we decided to go back to BlackStarCanyon, which is a little bit more “rain safe” location.
When: Roll off 6:00pm after a short introduction to safety rules
Meeting point: Beginning of Black Star Canyon Road, XMAS Tree Farm.
Driving Directions: Take Santiago Canyon Road. Turn into Silverado Canyon Road. Take the first left which is Black Star Canyon Road and immediately park on the left side .
Beginner Rider Course Description:
The first mile will be on paved road and after the gate we will continue on black star canyon road, a fire road and no steep climbing. We are planning to ride for about 60min and depending on the average speed of the group, “Let’s see how far we can go “! Then we will turn around and will carefully descent with a slow pace.
Experienced Rider Course Description:
Yeah, you guys will ride all the way to the top (the famous giant white fussball or where actually all SOCAL’s weather radar live images are coming from!) and enjoy the view. We will meet you again on the way down. It should take you about 70min to the top and less than 25min down. Just in case bring your lights !
If we decide to cancel the ride due to weather conditions we will post it on our team website and will send another email.
Please email us if you have any further questions.
As always, looking forward for a great ride and lots of fun!
