Hey guys,

I'll be passing through San Luis Obispo in early January.

The ol' trailforks machine shows a few riding areas in town.

What trails would you recommend to someone with only one day in town?

Any help would be appreciated.

Trailforks has all the good trails hidden on West Cuesta Ridge.
Use Heatmaps strava segment explorer to find.
Also get a hold of Bike Church Shuttles. They'll point you in the right direction.

And to fully better answer your question, it depends on what you are looking for and how recently it has rained.
Rowdy primitive DH tracks, with some challenging return climbs before a final 2000' drop into town? You want to to Ride the Ridge. But if it's been raining the lower exit trails back to town won't be rideable and its possible the upper loops (the good stuff) won't be either. The 20+ miles of trail at Montana de Oro state park (MDO) are always rideable when wet with the exception of East Boundary which is clay.

There's 30+ miles of trail between Johnson Ranch, Irish Hills and Madonna Mtn.
JR is not rideable when wet and is boring anyways unless used as merely an access point to a longer Irish ride.
Most of upper Irish is rideable after somewhat recent rain, if you access from Costco
The Madonna climb, Rockgarden descent and trail around the backside are rideable a day or so after rain.

But of course it all depends on how much rain we've had and how saturated the ground was before the most recent rain... MDO can be ridden in a hurricane and is the most fun immediately after a rain.
