Local Trail Rides
just show up and ride with us!
thinkMTB mountain bike club is ready to ride most every day of the week. If you like to ride with others, want to challenge yourself to ride new trails or to new levels then join us on the trails. You can frequently find us on the rides below.
Our rides are shared in a private members forum. Join our club or Contact Us to join a ride and check us out.
Midweek Mornings on Quail Loop
Many midweek mornings we have a group of riders that meet at the Quail Creek trailhead to ride what we call Quail Loop. It's about an 18 mile roundtrip with about 2400' of elevation gain. The group rides at a nice easy pace. Stretch your legs on a mid week morning if you have the flexibility to ride then. No technical skills required other than a little hill climbing.
Sunday Mornings at Newport Coast
We meet at 7 am every Sunday morning at Coastal Peak Park in Newport Coast to ride the trails in Crystal Cove State Park and Laguna Coast Wilderness. We end most rides with a meetup for coffee at Starbucks at Crystal Cove Retail Center on PCH.
Wednesday Nights at Docent Brewing
On Wednesday nights we join the 6 pm ride from Docent Brewing. Hosted by friends of Docent, these rides draw big group every week. The rides can be a little aggressive so plan on pushing yourself!
Taco Tuesday Whiting Ranch & the Luge
We occasionally run Taco Tuesday ride that starts and ends at Wahoo's on Portola Parkway in Lake Forest. After the ride hang out and grab some taco's!
