There are tons of sites similar to geoladders where you can find rides.

Good beginner ride in the Santa Monica Mountains is Westridge - Sullivan Canyon. Long steady fire road climb, fast and mostly easy singletrack descent. In north OC is Fullerton Loop. Combo of multi-use trails, dirt roads, a few surface streets and RR track beds to make a loop. A few semi-technical ascents and descents, but nothing too hairy and anything you didn't want to ride is short enough to walk the bike over.

LMK if I can help. Nice bike!

Thanks man. I do have some news though. That bike was stolen 2 weeks after I bought it. Scumbags I tell ya. So I didn't get to fully enjoy it.

This past weekend I got the 2013 Specialized Sport Disc 26, a step down from the 29. I like the color scheme and figured the profile would be lower. Although I have my hesitations, I did pick up a Kryptonite u-lock also.

I'm wondering if this truly is a good mtb bike since it's also listed as "recreational." i figured it'd work well for me as a mtb n00b.

oh hai, i upgraded your ride.
