Ahhhhh San Dieeeeeeeaaaggggoooo. Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego..... Ron Burgundy

The cool temperatures have been a welcome relief from the Tucson heat. After a week of riding northern San Diego County, I have a good grasp of what needs to be done to make a ~60 mile epic loop. This area is home to dozens of preserves, when connected together, you could have a potential for a huge, full day epic. Enter a week of scouting and "getting back into shape."

A few pictures from the scouting this week to get you a taste of the riding.

Here is the proposed epic loop

San Dieguito
Hodges Lake (south and North)
Mule Ears
Old Coach Trail
Poway Lake
Mount Woodson
Iron Mountain
Poway Trails
Santa Luz
Black Mountain

There’s an abundance of mountain bike tires on the market to choose from, so it can be tricky knowing how to choose the right mountain bike tires.

Got a GPS file of the route? I am wondering how you would make it a true loop. I grew up near Hodges and would love to figure out a real loop connecting all these preserves. The closest I have seen is SDMBA's Archipeligo ride.

Such gorgeous country there, would love to be there right now, thanks for sharing.

After lots of searching/networking with local MTB guys, I found a route and will be bikepacking it in the next couple months sometime. Maybe I can post a link to the gpx and kml files I create to navigate myself through all the connections.

Wow, that is a great landscape right there. That would have been a pleasure to ride in the weather you were writing about. The weather just cooled down quite a bit in the mid-west so I have been taking full advantage of the single tracks. Although, nothing around here even looks close to that.
