Who is Faster up to the top of La Costa Hills / Denk Mountain

Man or Machine?

Denk Mountain Hill Climb

Who is Faster?

The question is who is faster-  the Runner or the Mountain Biker?

The answer is the formation of the event Man Vs Machine, where each is pitted against the other in a timed event up the hill.

History of the concept:
Last year a group of us would meet on Fridays to Mountain Bike up Denk Mountain (Top of Rancho La Costa Conservation Area).  Sometimes we would have runners participate.  It became clear that by choosing different routes it was not clear who would be at the top of the hill first – Man or Machine.

Man Vs Machine is looking to be a simple affair:

  1. Decide if you are a Man/Woman/Hiker or a Machine.
  2. Register for the event on line (Before Aug 27th)
  3. Show up at Cadenza park the morning of the event (6:30am to 7:10am)
  4. Give us your donation of $10 or more for RLCC (Only Cash)
  5. Get your starting time
  6. Go to the starting location (Starting at 7:30am)
  7. Go as fast as you can up the hill


When is the Event?
Sunday August 28th.  This will be our  LOW KEY first time event of its kind.  email us at focycling@gmail.com if you have questions

Where is the Event?
Here is a Google Map of the area with:

  • Parking Registration Area
  • Approximate start location
  • Finish location

Where do I register?
We are using Eventbrite for registration. We will not be taking any day of event sign ups. It is too complicated for us to track.  Below is the registration:

What are the rules?
Only two rules.  You must run / hike /ride up legal trails within the Open Space.  You cannot race down the hill.  We need to be safe.

What is the cost?
We are raising money for Center for Natural Lands Management Rancho La Costa Habitat Conservation Area. We are asking for a $10 donation at the time of registration.

Epic North County San Diego Mtn Bike ride on Saturday April 17th – 7am.

Archipelago Ride 2010

Epic NC SD Mtn Bike Ride

Our good friend Rich  J is putting together his second annual Archipelago Ride starting from La Costa Hills and mostly traveling on some great trails to Penasuitos.  Here is Rich’s description:
You have done your taxes and paid the man. That big hole in your wallet stings so now is the time for a ride and a cold one. This year we will ride segments that have names like The Jungle Ride, The Gauntlet, Herbie’s Trail, The Crosby Switches. The old standbys are still there and sorry but The Way Up still is The Way Up and it isn’t any easier. This year we will have greener grass more flowers and no asphalt. Not like we had a lot of asphalt before but this year there is more dirt then ever.

We will meet at North of the Border at 7:00 am and organize the shuttling process. There will be some with trucks and vans that can help shuttle but not knowing how many riders we have yet please plan it like you have to do your own shuttle but if you can squeeze on somewhere that will help make the world greener. I will let you know if some serious means to shuttle a lot of riders happens. Once we shuttle up to La Costa we will drive to the end of Junipero Serra, down the block from the usual trail head because this year we will go up Vista Del Mar instead of The Switchbacks.I want to be riding by 8:00am sharp.

Sagwagon will meet us at Elfin , Hernandez Hideaway, Lusardi Canyon and Black Mountain. Sag stations will have water and energy( Clif) bars and most likely a beer at Black Mtn. We will go up the Lopez Canyon Trail to end the ride at North of the Border. Food drinks and cold beers await. The ride will probably take until 3:00 to 3:30 for everyone to finish.

Entry fee will be $15 collected at North of the Border or if you meet us at La Costa and for $15 a classic Archipelago tee shirt will be available. The shirts will have the open spaces laid out like the Hawaiian Islands with a Hula skirted dancer palm trees and the date on front. A course map and sponsor logos on the back. You better let me know if you want one of these one of a kind classics or I may not get enough of them made.

Epic Action Cam is throwing in an action cam. Raffle tickets will be available for $1 a piece or $5 for 6 or $10 for 12.

If anything changes or gets added I will let you know. RSVP Rich@sdmba before April 10th so I can make adjustments and other plans as needed. All levels will be accommodated, no soul left behind, we will have dedicated sweeps.

Yours Rich

29Er Guy can write, but I post for him…

This past Sunday was the beginning of race season for many here in Southern California. The Sagebrush Safari plays host to those looking to compete in both the Kenda Cup and US Cup West series.

My good friend Joe and I made it out to Sagebrush to test our spring fitness. We had had a week of rain before Sunday and the big question on everyone’s mind was what the course would be like. Thankfully the rain stopped Saturday night and the soil there is sandy so it drained pretty well. I thought about changing tires the night before the race, but I stuck to my tried and true Bontrager Jones XRs front and rear. As for the bike I went with the SuperFly hard-tail set up with the 1×10 drivetrain. The Sagebrush course has two major climbs and both are on paved roads, so the hard-tail seemed the perfect bike.

I raced Cat 2 in the 45-50 age group. Our course was an 18 mile loop with everything from pavement to single track to hike-a-bike. The race starts much like a road race with about 3 miles of pavement. We shed several riders from our group even before the climb. If you didn’t know how to draft like a roadie you were in trouble. Once we hit the big climb we started to catch riders from other groups and it was hard to tell who was in your race.

I used my Garmin Edge 500 during the race and monitored my heart rate the entire time. I was amazed at the end to see my average heart rate for the race was 184bpm. At the top of the climb the fun begins and we were treated to miles of swoopy fun single track. The rain had left behind lots of puddles and mud bogs that had to be navigated along the way. I got into a rhythm and started to enjoy the ride. The race official warned us at the beginning about a large water crossing near the end and he wasn’t kidding. What was usually a stream had become a small river due to all the rain. Riders had to decide if they wanted to risk riding it or dismount and wade through. I went for it and was able to ride through without a problem. Sure was glad it was toward the end of the course as the water was cold. It did however do a good job of rinsing off the Superfly so I looked good crossing the line.

I managed 5th place, which was good enough for a medal and a place on the podium. My buddy Joe got 4th in the Cat 2 40-45 class so we were both happy with our results and stuck around for the awards. The Sagebrush Race draws a serious crowd of racers, but still has a fun down home feel. I saw some other friends and we enjoyed hanging out and re-telling our race to each other.

I ran into friend of the shop and Pro racer Rebecca Tomaszewski. She managed 3rd place in the women’s pro race riding her single speed. Dam that girl is tough. All and all we had a fun day at the races.
