Lately in Southern California, a select group of responsible, deticated, Integra owners have been getting together to carve up the s-curves in our local canyons.

Check out the pictures and videos to get a sense for the runs, but first:

THESE ARE NOT RACES. THESE ROADS ARE VERY TECHNICAL AND YOU CAN SERIOUSLY HURT YOURSELF OR OTHERS IF YOU DRIVE IRRESPoNSIBLY. THE STREETS ARE NOT FOR PUSHING THE LIMITS!

With that out of the way...

If you want to track your car, do it on your time. This is for the beauty of the roads and a little bit of fun. The last thing anyone wants out of this is to get injured, or to injure someone else. So feel free to post, PM or just show up based on the info here, and if you've got some awesome place that you think we're missing, tell us! Cheers, and drive safe!

Places the Canyon Runs have taken us:
- Mulholland Raceway in the Santa Monica Mountains
- Glendora Mountain Road
- Angeles Crest Historical Highway
- Ortega Highway
- Highway S22
- Little Tujunga Canyon Road

The Rock Store in the Santa Monica Mountains:



The view from Stunt Road (you can see the valley and the ocean):



The view from the top of Mulholland Ave on "The Snake":



The tree with the parts from the last few cars and bikes that wrecked, DRIVE SLOW is the message there.

seems interesting. hows the road conditions? my cars kinda slammed in the front lol
well, it's good enough for ferrari's and lambos so im pretty sure you'll be alright. topanga canyon blvd got re-paved with that recycled-tires asphault so it's the best road quality there is. stunt road, kinda sketch, but old topanga and mulholland are pretty damn good.

That looks like a fun road.

I do Ortega Highway a couple times a month. It gets a little crowded though sometimes. And the last time I went out a couple weeks ago, they were doing road work - stopping traffic on both sides for 10-15 minutes at a time so they could carve rumble strips into the center line on the Riverside County section.

it really depends on how well my friday night went! haha. i am trying to get my 8 hour shift off on sundays or at least half of it covered so i can go for the afternoon session on sunday but as of right now i just go on saturday mornings, earlier the better, stay until 3p then a mad dash for work.

yeah, i grew up in temecula and went to school in riverside, had a lot of buddies do ortega all the time and for some that road was quite literally a death trap, i think this is a much less stressful run, but hit me up this saturday and see for yourself.

like ive said before, just because i go up there at 7-8am on a saturday doesnt mean you have to. im happy to meet up with people on PCH at 10, 11, 12 whatever. just know that the later you go the more sloOb's there will be.

post here or PM me and we can text if you wanna run. cheers!
