Josh and I were riding today in Simi, remembering the “Golden Age” of So Cal Muni (basically 2003 to 2007) when all the big trails up at Santa Barbara (Tunnel and Rattlesnake remain iconic tech Muni runs, rarely cleaned top to bottom), Simi Valley (including the stellar and dangerous G-Spot), Suicide Connector, Elevator Drop in Santa Monica, Mt. Baldy, and dozens more. The Santa Barbara Muni Club was possible the most active group of hard core Muni riders going at the time, with frequent visitors from all over. 2004 Cal Muni Weekend was questionably the best tech Muni gathering ever. The whole gang was there and the rides were awesome. Legendary rider, Eyal Aharoni organized.
Luckily, all those and many more great trails are still there, and the “good old days” are alive and well today, (with ever improving uni technology!) every time any of us gets out to ride them…which for a lot of us is still quite often! Cool pics btw.
I appreciate the votes of confidence. And like I mentioned earlier in this thread, this is the “Golden Age”; at least imo. Reminds me of a classic song with a similar theme. (For those over 40, it might also remind you of a ketchup commercial! )
