ATTENTION TEAMS… we invite you to hang out and potluck this Saturday at SCPS4. We’ll bring in a small run of food from our friends at El Pollo Loco this day. If you would like to set up in the venue with your tents, please arrive between 7:30a-8:30a to drop off your tents or else be prepared to walk it up the road. The park is nice with some nice picnic areas, but not easy access for bringing things in once the course is closed. Don’t forget to bring your MTB or trail run shoes if you want to explore the connecting trails!
SoCalCross announces a brand new venue for SCPS #4 City of LA Cyclocross will take place at O’Melveny Park in Granada Hills! Thanks to the City of Los Angeles for supporting SoCalCross and cycling events in their parks. This is a perfect CX and MTB Weekend!
O’Melveny Park is located above Granada Hills in the San Fernando Valley. The park surrounds the Bee Canyon watershed and abuts the Santa Susana mountain range below Oat Mountain. Hiking trails and fire roads invite exploration of this 672-acre park. Outside of Griffith Park, O’Melveny Park is the city’s second largest park. Originally known as the “C.J. Ranch”, it was purchased in 1941 by attorney John O’Melveny of the respected large law firm O’Melveny and Meyers and used to grow citrus and graze cattle.
Heading to the CORBA Fat Tire Festival on Sunday? Bring your MTB and get a warm up ride at O’Melveny. Trails can be accessed right from the park! Review comments from MTBR.com
