    Moving to Loma Linda

    Hey,

    My fiancée got into LLU med school, so I'll be in Loma Linda by August. I'm driving from VA, so I'll probably just have my AM bike (Jekyll) with me at first. Anyone know the state of the DJs at Hulda Crooks? Saw a glimpse of them in a video today, so now I'm wanting to bring my DJ bike as well.

    Are there any regular group rides? Any trails in the area I should also look into?

    Any other local tips would be great as well.

    Thanks!
    John

    dirtymike and myself ride there all the time . the dirt jumps are still gnarly and in good shape . your jekyll will be perfect for riding hulda crooks . dirtymike has a cool vid of him riding one of the ladder drops @ hulda from this past monday . i'll ask him to post it to give you a better idea of riding there . august is a little hot for riding there and by that time of year the trails are not in the best shape . but drop me or dirtymike a pm when it gets closer to august and we would be glad to show you around hulda crooks .

    Great! I'm hoping to find a job and move out before August, but I'll definitely be there in August. Do many people do early-morning or night rides at Hulda in the hot months? I'll give you a shout when I make it out there.

    I am not saying we kill all the stupid people, I am just saying we should remove all the warning labels and let it sort itself out.....

    It's probably going to be a month or two before I move out. I'll be visiting for a couple days next week, but mostly to look for apartments and get a feel for the area. Do you live in Loma Linda/Redlands? Any tips on apartments to check out/avoid? Looks like a lot of apartments out there wouldn't allow my 35-40lb dog... Trying to stay within 5-10miles of LLU so my fiancée can bike in easily.

    Thanks!

    i am about ten minutes up the road from LL.... Truth be said in this entire area most places will not allow dogs in the first place, let alone anything more than a 20 pound dog...... as far as LL goes really anything is everything..... Pretty standard across the board on apartments....

    Super... Thanks for the info! I'll hit you up when I make it out there. I've seen a couple vids of Hulda on youtube, looking forward to riding it!

    I don't guess there are any trials riders out there? I might leave that bike in VA.
    Edit: I know there are/were some in LA.
