If your riding Mulholland and want to connect, chime in here.

Feel free to use this thread for any future rides on Mulholland.

=====
I'll be there early tomorrow 7/27/14 around 8am.

Gonna run the snake all morning then head home before lunch and before the traffic picks up. Sun is rising at 6am tomorrow so the asphalt should be nice and warm fairly early.

Don't sweat those videos. They do show a lot of carnage - but what they don't show are the 1000's and 1000's of runs up and down where nothing happens.

One thing to note is that Sunday afternoon is the WORST possible time for riding the snake, it is crowded with tons of cars, bikes and bicycles. It is however fun to watch all of the insanity on a Sunday afternoon.

I stopped by yesterday at the end of my ride and Jay Leno pulled up in his new McClaren P1 - pretty nice car. But riding the snake was frustrating with all of the traffic on it.

If you want to make some runs up and down it, weekdays or earlier in the morning on the weekends are the best.

I went up there for lunch today. Saw a red one riding in a group.
The traffic was sooo light, and the day gorgeous, I'm thinking I'll do this regularly, like twice a week during lunch hour. Mondays and Thursdays.
So, who works/lives in the west side who can get away for two hours during lunch to go play with me? 12:00-2:00pm.
Like I mentioned, only two hours from Venice CA, to the vista point, (with a gas stop) down to the rock store, up again and then back to Venice.
I'll be heading there again on Thursday. I'll check here before that tho.

I might play hooky from work this Thursday so will let you know.
If you don't see a post from me then you can assume that I'm putting out some blazing fire at work.:blob8:

Latigo canyon is my favorite up there.

Last time I was up there (November) I noticed allot of random oil spots in the middle of the lane, not the middle of the road. Can anyone tell me if they are still up there?
