Planning a California surf/bike trip in February and wonder what are the must ride trails or trail networks. Any info will be appreciated, thinking Santa Cruz to San Clemente and dont mind a bit of a drive inland for good trails.
Thanks

Well, the Coastal trail on MT Tam is a bucket list trail I think.

February's going to be sloppy along the coast and snowy in the Sierra. Better to just bring the surfboard and leave the bike, unless you're interested in fireroads.

bit far, but laguna beach and noble canyon might be good

*At least the stuff around Santa Cruz, anyways (UC, Demo, Nisene, Skeggs) will be mudpits in February. Winter riding around here is Ft. Ord heavy, which is enjoyable enough, but definitely xc-centric. I can't speak for San Luis Obispo and south.

If you are driving down highway 1 then Montaña de Oro is gonna be the best trail system south of Monterey. Rides well in the rain to.

If you're going down to San Clemente, you can hit the orange county spots that are good. Laguna / Aliso Canyon and the San Clemente Single Tracks (park at the dog park) are definitely worth riding. Simi Valley/Rocky Peak Park up by LA is also very much worth your time.

let me know if you want more info on any of these.

I would check out demo soquel forest for sure. Ride flow or braille. Flow is the one of the longest flow trails. 6 miles of awesome downhill!
