The Irvine Laguna Monster

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

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.
