You should move the meeting location up the road a little ways. The owner of that building / parking lot does not want our cars or bikes on his property. The end of Telonics was rerouted to accommodate his wishes and the relationship between MTBers and the owner have been fine since. We are working hard to keep it that way.

Instead of Telonics lot, we usually meet/park at Ganahl Lumber

[url=Map to Ganahl Lumber]http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=CZe7eQtEY_--FY8YAAIdZ-76-CG92CH_dmwNOA&q=1765+Laguna+Canyon+Rd+Laguna+Beach,+CA+92651-1120&sll=33.55867,-117.774081&sspn=0.017595,0.027595&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=1765+Laguna+Canyon+Rd,+Laguna+Beach,+Orange,+California+92651&ll=33.555809,-117.77406&spn=0.009245,0.013797&t=h&z=16[/url]

We use either the little driveway to the East of Telonics to pick up riders or on the weekends, we usually pedal over to the Art School and meet the truck(s) there.

[url=Map to Art School]http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Laguna+College+of+Art+and+Design,+2222+Laguna+Canyon+Rd,+Laguna+Beach,+CA+92651-1136&sll=33.561517,-117.772381&sspn=0.002311,0.003449&g=33.560937,-117.772709&ie=UTF8&hq=Laguna+College+of+Art+and+Design,&hnear=2222+Laguna+Canyon+Rd,+Laguna+Beach,+Orange,+California+92651&ll=33.560958,-117.772686&spn=0.008797,0.013797&t=h&z=16[/url]

As far as trail choice goes...
Telonics is an obvious choice.

Carwreck is a fun trail but it will leave you with a big climb afterward. Definitely not worth it on shuttle days. If you are pedaling around the inside of Aliso, hit it up. It is still a fun trail.

Stairsteps is a fun trail as well and is reasonably workable with a shuttle.

Trail Mix is an easy shuttle and the trail is a little steep, a little loose and plenty fast. I think you guys will like it.

Back Door is another fun trail that parallels Telonics. It is not a real technical trail but it will challenge your bike handling skills. The idea is to ride it without skidding into/through the turns.

Trail "Fuck" aka Ira's is a good trail but I wouldn't recommend it for a large group. The trail is in the open and you can be seen can be seen from a large stretch of 133, dog park, and LCWP. Large groups tend to move slowly on Ira's and Direct Dial (next trail over) and will be very visible.

There are some bigger trails nearby that I have purposely not mentioned. Again, they are not ideal for large groups.

Kentonn- call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure that's the parking lot we've been using. So no change needed there. We just pedal over there from the bottom of telonix.

Yes Steve that is the parking lot we used last time, and the same one we should use again, don't want the art kids getting mad at us.

Ken it was good meeting you on Sunday. Hope you make it out Saturday so you can show us more of Laguna

Hey Steve, I figured that was the parking lot that you used last time. What I am saying is that it is a bad idea to use that parking lot The owner absolutely does not want us using the parking lot, not even riding our bikes across it. If he begins to have trouble with the bikers again, he may follow-up on his threats to bring it to the city or park. Early this year, some of our buddies worked out an arrangement with the him. They rerouted the end of Telonics so it did not end in his parking lot and basically agreed to stay off his property.

I'm really not trying to make this difficult but the current system is working for us. We ride the trail and the city and rangers leave us alone. If they start to get complaints, that may or may not change, who really knows? If we stick to the arrangement, we don't need to find out. All we have to do is park a little further down the road. We can still pick-up riders at the bottom of Telonics, we only need to go to the next driveway past the Telonics parking lot. No big deal, I promise.

10am is on the late side for me but I'll be in the park early so I'll pedal over to the top of Telonics (I'm assuming top of the world park). I'll wear a pirate patch. How will people (me) know who's a pirate?

Last time I rode Telonics I burned through a brake pad...haha

you can take me off the *trying *list and put it to *i'm a slave to life, which says I can't go*. My better half is working at Interbike and won't be home until evening Sat sometime and my sitter just cancelled on me..

I may however may be there closer to sunrise with a few people that want to ride earlier and who my daughter knows well enough to be comfortable riding in the shuttle vehicle.
