Driving Directions
Start in Hesperia
Ride Summit Valley Rd to Hwy 138, make a right and go about a mile to a dirt road on the left in Horsethief Canyon. Make a left onto the dirt road, sandy by the highway. Ride it to a trail on the left. Take the overgrown singletrack miles to a road junction, 2N47, make a right and climb up to Cleghorn Mountain. Descend down the other side, the jeep trail that cuts off to the left of the road is in horrible condition, so stay on the fire road back down to complete the loop and back to 138 to Summit Valley Rd to Hesperia.
From Cleghorn Mountain, there is a thick dark cloud of pollution hanging over the Silverwood, Hesperia, Lake Arrowhead areas, sick looking. No wonder why I can't breathe anymore. If tap water looked like the air we're breathing day in and out, everyone would be buying bottled.
Notes about this ride report
Rode with Jay and Romolo, well, tried to.

My front derailleur clamp came loose at the end of the ride and was rubbing my rear tire.

Just put on a new drivetrain. This was the first real ride with it. My derailleur hanger is bent, getting a new one. Crankset, BB, brake levers, cassette, chain, derailleurs F & R, shifters, shifter cables, rear wheel, saddle. Had a 120 stem on, usually use a 90, it was too long, now my hip hurts.
