I can't make it to this (plans already this weekend), but I am going to be posting a ride announcement in a couple days to head up to Lake Isabella the next Saturday (May 12th). Think you might be interested?

I would be interested if I was a little closer. Isn't Lake Isabella 5 hours from Los Angeles? I've been to Kern county once for white river rafting.

 Subject: It's not that bad

Round trip it would be about 350 miles for you, depending on where in LA you are - http://g.co/maps/5pjyd

Last time, we left Lancaster at around 10:30, and were back around 4 or 5, so it's not that long of a day, even with another hour at the beginning and end for you.

What's the longest you've done in a day?

For the way I'd go, just to get to the meet point is 60+ miles. Most of it twisty fun, but still a long way.

350 miles is a medium length ride for me now, but I forget that other people don't always have the same endurance/experience...

 Subject: Best way to do it is build up

If you haven't done many/any long distance days, the best way to do it is build up over time. Say your longest day is 100 miles - next ride go 150 miles, and do that a couple times. Next time go 200, and so on.

If you feel like making the trip, let me know!
