All year, you ride for yourself. For one day, ride for the trails.
Celebrate CORBA's 24th year of advocacy, keeping and getting more trails open to bicycles. Ride in beautiful Malibu Creek State Park, and the Solstice Canyon and Latigo Canyon sections of the Backbone Trail in National Park Service property (recommended for experienced riders). After the ride will be lunch, beer provided by New Belgium Brewery, and a raffle with bikes and gear.
Thanks to the volunteers who contributed photos: Steve Clark, Claudia Mitchell, Steve Messer, Wendy Engleberg, and a special thanks to Xandei Tena who paid to attend but spent most of the day taking photos for CORBA!
There are multiple pictures of all riders, arranged randomly, so you can look through all 20 pages of thumbnails to find photos of yourself and your friends!
