The Irvine Laguna Monster

Never travel alone, and/or without proper training, and survival supplies given the area you decide to ride.

Dirty Century does not guarantee in any way the accuracy or reliability of any information and shall not be liable for losses incurred by its use. Information provided  here is on a “use at own risk” basis.

Also, some of the races and rides have lots of dirt roads, some with little to no real “trail”– we will do our best to give trail vs. dirt road and road miles, but you may have to research this on your own. If you have details on some of these rides please contact us so we can better serve the mountain bike community.
