Charles Patterson
Los Angeles, CA

Growing up in Topanga Canyon, Charles Patterson was literally born into the sport of mountain biking. If the local trails weren’t inspiring enough, Charles found additional motivation from his mother and brother, both former professional bicycle racers. After a short stint in the GPS electronics industry, Charles is now putting his English degree to better use by combining his two passions — writing and mountain biking — so he can leave his own mark by sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for the sport with others.

Mountain Bike! Los Angeles County
Charles Patterson

    Mountain Bike! Los Angeles County is must-have literature for the cyclist who is eager to explore the wonderful terrain that housed the genesis of mountain biking in the late seventies. In this trail guide you'll find detailed maps of carefully planned routes, some popular and some unknown to many, as well as comprehensive descriptions of what hazards and delights you'll encounter along the way. Whether you're an adrenaline seeking downhill bomber, or a gram-counting cross country racer, the Wide Grin guide will be your bible.

     Los Angeles County has every conceivable type of mountain bike accessible terrain, from remote, loamy oak forest floor singletracks without a person in sight, to roller coaster, rock-garden filled chutes that will give you plenty of thrills. Several easier routes for novice riders are also included. Riders eager to explore the roaring downhills, stomach dropping jumps, and good old scenic singletrack of Los Angeles County have never had a better friend than this.

    Energetic text bristling with ride thrills, spills, and chills is spiked with easy-to-digest quick facts such as ride difficulty, ride length, and trail conditions. Extremely accurate ride maps obtained with GPS technology and produced by GIS experts include ride profiles that give a fast visual of the pleasure and pain that lie ahead. To ice the cake, Los Angeles author, resident, and trail expert Charlie Patterson provides the skinny on where to grab a cold brew after the ride. Totally refreshing.
