Jenson USA Ride

JensonUSA was hosting a ride on a trail 7 miles away from my house. I had never been on the trail so I was curious ride it. Last time I rode MTB was about 4 months ago, so my MTB skills were rusty. I also had a few beers on friday night, but I had promised my buddy that I was going to show up.


The ride was supposed to start at 8:30am, and of course, people showed up late. I knew I was in trouble when riders with $2K+ machines started to show up.

We finally got going at about 9:00am, it was already freaking hot. As we started to climb the first singletrack, my body reminded me that I had a few beers the night before. My buddy was feeling the effects of the heat, so he decided to call it the day and head back. I was really close to the top of the climb so I caught up to the group.

Alan Eger, our Guide, was kind enough to wait for me for the time that I was riding, unfortunately, the heat and my mild hangover caught up to me and I ended bailing out early.

Thanks to JensonUSA for setting up these rides, next time, I won’t drink, I promise.

    Thanks for the nice writeup.

    But hey, forget the ride, just tell me which restaurant serves those enormous brews!

    Marisa’s restaurant. There’s one in Downey and one in La Mirada. Ask for a Dos Equis ‘Chabela’ and some nachos, you can’t go wrong.
