MTB Ride: La Tuna Canyon

October 26, 2009 Mountain Biking, Sport No Comments

A couple of weeks ago, we found ourselves at La Tuna Canyon after being denied access to Angeles National Forrest (due to road closure). I really liked this spot. The terrain was challenging, yet manageable. I appreciated how the ascent was broken up with regular intervals of flatness, which helped in controlling lactate buildup. Also, the air that day was fresh and the weather was cool, contributing to an enjoyable experience. I felt like I could climb that mountain forever!

Half way up the mountain, PH surveying the landscape.

This day, I actually had to leave the group early to be on time for dinner reservations. When zooming down the mountain, I was quite amazed at the distance we covered. It took a good 15 to 20 minutes going down with minimal application of brakes. Very, very fun.

I later saw video of the guys taking an alternate, much scarier route down. Pretty ballsy if you ask me, especially since most wear minimal body armor.

I’d like to come back again! Cheers!
