    Hello all. I used to mtb 5-6 times a week. About 2 and a half years ago I endured a pretty serious back injury and have been on my bike maybe 3 times since the injury. My back is finally better but unfortunately I'm am now beyond out of shape and gained a good bit of weight. I am wanting to ride again but am needing to take things slow. I'm looking for someone to ride with a few times a week in the mornings or early afternoons. Trails I'm open to excuse of proximity to where I live are Peters canyon, Irvine and possibly Fullerton loop. Once I'm in better shape im open all trails. Let me know if you're interested in riding and possibly in a similar situation of getting back into riding shape. Thanks and I loo forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Bubba, devastating injuries are a real demon to overcome and rise above, congratulations, you've done both mentally and physically!
    Now it's time to thrust a dagger through the heart of it's past discouragement it inflicted on you.
    Unfortunately, I'm not available to be on a bike early morns or early afternoons, but dang, a couple more years....retired Lord willing.
    Don't discount the lower trails of Santiago Oaks as well til you work your conditioning further.
    Irvine stays open late with Christmas season, I could do a evening ride with ya 4:30 ish to 6:00 with lights, they light the park up with holiday lights.
    Anyways, just want to encourage you to go forward in your zeal for a much shared passion.....MOUNTAIN BIKING.

    The trails in Irvine Park close at sunset, just like the Oaks. The park itself is open til 6:00.

    I'm sure you mean well stravaholic, but I'm pretty sure we're not all trespassing during the holiday season when we drive through the open gate to partake of the seasonal festivities.

    Steve.....thinking of the Pharisees in the New Testament right now.
