I’ve mentioned in several posts now that one of the great things about San Diego and the country as a whole is that open space is plentiful and well distributed. Wherever you are, you can be on a trail within minutes. In Carlsbad area, one of these neighborhood trail systems is the La Costa Preserve. My co-worker Steve and I often ride mountain bikes here after work, and it’s quickly become one of my favorite local rides in the area – not something you’d drive too far to seek out, but an awesome option if you live or work near or are just passing through. Click through to watch a quick video that I’ve put together using GoPro footage from a few of our rides there.
