Santos Turkey Burn
« on: November 21, 2007, 11:49:48 AM »
I am heading to Santos on Friday to burn off some turkey.  Plan on riding the epic.  I have room for 3 additional riders / bikes if anyone would like to carpool.

Cool.  Are you meeting there or carpool / convoying up?  What trailhead do you plan on starting at?

There was no mention where to meet. I would think Santos trailhead as the starting point meet at 9:30a and leave at 10a and be done no later than 2:30p.

See my update on the Santos Epic thread.  I did this ride today.  Actuall 50 miler.  I highly suggest you use the Land Bridge TH.  You may not be able to carry enough water for a 42 mile (4-5 hr) ride.  Plus you can do lunch there and is a bit closer to I-75 then Santos Main TH.  Good luck and have fun.

Looks like we got a good group together.  Meet at the Landbridge TH at 9:30.  That's a good midpoint in the ride.  Beer, try to go easy on us.  We'll be suffering enough with the extra turkey weight. ;D  See you guys there.

It looks like Santos is getting some rain or it's close. Thats fine with me. Less sand.

BTW How exactly do I get there? I know how to get to the main trailhead but not Landbridge. Does east on 484, north on S.W. 16th Ave. sound close?

Wish I could go. Guess I'll just sneak in a quick road ride. I've got to burn off that extra food some how.

Yes.  Get off on exit 341 (Country Road 484)  then go east (right).  Immediately turn left on the first light which is C.R. 475A or SW 16th Ave.  Go about 1-2 miles and TH on your left.  Good facilities there with very nice picnic tables.  Definetely do the West trails first.  Don't forget Canel diggins trail.  It is not part of the Epic route but is a MUST do trail.  It is only marked with a carton with hand writting on it.  It is about 1 mile little loop off Nayl's trail.

Just curious why do the west trails first? Is there a benefit for that as opposed to starting at the east side?
