** Ride Change!! The original ride for this weekend was to be at Victory Trailhead, but there is a BIG running race scheduled at Victory at the same time. So, we're switching Victory with the New Mill ride originally scheduled the following week. **

New Millennium is PERFECT this time of year and not to be missed for our Revelations and Gospels groups. Genesis riders, or those interested in fewer switchbacks, will head from the parking lot to M*A*S*H. Temps are forecast for highs in the mid 70s, and with the green and flowers at full power, don't miss a chance to ride!

Shepherd MTB Club basics:

All new riders are requested to bring or email a signed waiver for Shepherd Church. You may download a copy from the Church's website: Shepherd Sports Mountain Bike Club ( http://www.shepherdsports.org/page/679 )

We typically divide into three groups on any given ride:

Genesis: our beginner group. Everyone was new to mountain biking once, so don't fret, we'll have you Gospel-ready in no time. Genesis is a NO DROP group.

Gospels: Intermediates to more casual advanced riders in this group. If you're on a Most-Wanted list, avoid this group as they will take and post online an average of 50 pictures a ride. The Gospels are a NO DROP group and usually go the same route as Revelations but at a more leisurely pace.

Revelations: our A group. Fire, fury, and mayhem. Most of these guys and gals are either on competitive teams, or were, and riding with them will be a sweat-pouring, cardio-pushing, speed & tech fest that will leave advanced riders grinning ear to ear. Revelations is a DROP group, meaning you have to keep up AND not get lost if you can't.

By riding with the Shepherd Church Mountain Bike Club I understand and accept the following:

I understand that mountain biking can be dangerous and accidents can result in either injury or death.

I understand that it is my responsibility to determine if my riding skills match the difficulty of the trail we are riding on.

I understand that ride schedulers accept no responsibility for my safety on any ride, and that I undertake any ride knowing that I and I alone am responsible for my safety on the ride.

What to Bring:

Helmet (mandatory)
Water (in bike cage and/or in your back pack)
Snacks or gels for energy
Extra bike tube and patch kit
Bike Pump
Apparel appropriate for trail riding
Protective eyewear
Sunscreen
2-way radio if you have one (will select channel before ride)

Take the 101 Freeway to the Lost Hills Road exit in Calabasas. At the end of the off-ramp proceed south toward the ocean. Park in the lot for Juan Bautist de Anza Park located on the northwest corner of Lost Hills and Las Virgenes Roads. Park along the street if the lot is full.

Miles/Roundtrip: 10.8 miles

Bathrooms at Trail: Yes - There is a large porta potty in the park.

New Millennium Trail Description: It isn't called Switchback City without reason, hence the multiple "CAUTION: Steep Switchback" signs. Narrow trails, climbs on the edges of mountains, and SPECTACULAR views, the New Millennium Trail has it all. Ride Duration: About 2.5 hours of moving time, ~2500 feet of climb

Miles/Roundtrip: 15+ from De Anza Park, or 13.9 from the Dog Park (meet there at 7:15).

Time for Encinal Canyon, arguably the best ride in the Santa Monica Mountains. Singletrack the whole way with the views toward the Pacific for nearly most of the ride, Encinal is just pure flow with…
