Intermediate Bike Ride: Shoestring Canyon, Loma Ridge, to the Back Side of The Sinks

Mountain Biking

Join us for a strenuous, extremely challenging, fast-paced, early morning bike ride in Limestone Canyon. Along the way we’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of Orange County and possible wildlife sightings. We will visit the back side of the Sinks to gain beautiful vistas of Agua Chinon and beyond. This is a 13.5 mile ride, completed in 2 hours and includes a 2000+ foot elevation change.  This ride is for experienced, physically fit bikers who enjoy the challenge of multiple steep climbs and descents.

There is one scheduled rest stop at the East Sinks Viewing Deck on this approximately  13.5  mile ride.
