    Anywhere between San Diego and Dana Point worth shuttling? Stupid question I know, but that's where I am gonna be this weekend and was debating bringing my big boy bike.

    There's Ted Williams in Poway. The runs aren't super like out at Anderson Truck Trail, but last I saw, there were a number of features to session.

    I'm down for some shuttle runs but this time we're rolling down in the wife's jetta so I could only hold two bikes. I was originally just going to bring my trail bike down, but if there's some shuttle opportunity I can bring the big bike.

    And last I heard if you make it to the bottom you will have a Park Ranger waiting for you with a hefty ticket.

    That was a weakass video of that trail. Mostly because they didn't even ride most of the hard lines, and didn't show the others, and one of the riders in the vid is one of the only guys to ride all the monster lines too. What a waste.

    They definitely missed the steep parts of the trail too.

    To answer the original question, you're better off up near Dana Point for shuttling. SD gravity riding is kinda weak unless you're willing to hoof it.
