Trail Mix” is our selection of the best photos sent to us by riders from all over the world. Every month we enjoy sifting through the photos of riders out on the trail doing what they do best—enjoying this awesome sport. If you’d like to see your photos in the pages of MBA, you can submit them by following the directions at the end. Happy trails.

Ramon Cruz and Ralf San Jose (alias “Halfie”) hike-a-biking Bell Ridge above Robinson Ranch in SoCal. This is really more a hiking trail than a biking trail. The chopped-up brush shown was apparently from the fire department’s attempt to make a fire break during the Holy Fire several months back. Sections of the trail are rideable, but much is not. The views, however, are spectacular!
Local trail wizard Richard Satterlee on an exceptional dirt day enjoying the Flash Flood trail, Ladera Ranch, Orange County, California. There is a maze of fun trails there amidst the urban sprawl, kinda like a small Disneyland for mountain bikers.
Thought I would provide a few more mountain bike pics for your “Trail Mix” consideration.

The Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA) is excited to announce that phase two of the CAMBA-Hayward Area Memorial Hospital Gateway Trail project has been completed. This year’s work added another two miles to the trail, bringing the total distance to 3.5 miles. The new trail continues the meandering, flowing character of the initial segment of trail and explores several extremely scenic areas.
The reception to the new trail has been universally enthusiastic and overwhelmingly positive. Chris Young of New Moon bike shop shared his observations about the new trail: “On any given day you may see a 3-yearold out there on a balance bike, a pair of 70-somethings cruising along and just about anyone in between. The CAMBA-Hospital trail has begun the transformation of the Hayward/Cable CAMBA trails into a broad-spectrum trail resource accessible to all abilities that anyone can enjoy.”
The third and final phase of the project will get underway in the spring of 2019, with the goal of another two to two and a half miles of trail. The total cost for phase three is expected to be approximately $27,000. “We hope local businesses, organizations or individuals can get behind this project and help CAMBA bring it to a successful completion,” says CAMBA Executive Director Ron Bergin. Anyone wishing to make a donation to help support this exciting project may do so at www.cambatrails.org by clicking the “Support” button.
This popular new trail system has been extremely well-received and appreciated by the local communities and has met the need for a trail system that is easily accessible and fun for all ages and skill levels.
