I could not even see where the fire was when we were riding the roads up there, street bike that is.First, is WG's home and buisness safe? Second, what does this mean for riding the forest?
The Hill Fire started on June 23, 2012 at approximately 12:22 at Hungry Valley Campground, located on Ventura County land. Strong Santa Ana winds quickly pushed the fire into the Los Padres National Forest. The wind driven fire spread though heavy brush and steep, rugged terrain, making firefighting efforts challenging. Excellent air support assisted firefighters in stopping the forward movement of the fire. Although the fire has settled in remote, steep terrain, firefighters are making good progress in the suppression efforts. While originally the fire was thought to have been 1500 acres, proper mapping has shown a decrease in acreage to 689.
Not knowing you injury it's hard to comment on that directly. The type of injury is the deciding point for me. Soreness can be ridden through. Actual mechanical issues like tendonitis or worse don't take so kindly to additional abuse.
The Piutes have riding that can be awesome flowing trails with no whoops to insanely difficult and relentlessly repeating obstacles. I have a feeling that latter are not part of the itinerary. If you have never been it's worth a few ibuprofen.
Well as it turns out I was incorrect, it's the "Greenhorns." Bull Run trail and some others. I think Im going to go for it.
