30km classic Catch22 / La Manga route.
Start near entrance to Soggy Peso bar on Catch 22 singletrack toward the mountains, include the lollipop loop and return down the same Catch 22 singletrack, with small section on dirt road before joining the paradiso singletrack heading toward the ojo de agua. Continue down Mickey's Wild Ride (MWR) and Rapido y Furioso singletrack to the dirt road.
Follow the dirt road up to Rancho La Huerta and Glenn's Canyon singletrack.
Connect to the dirt road again then a quick left to El Tobogán and enjoy the twisting sandy road uphill and downhill to the coast at Cactus Island. (optional ride up the Mirador overlook for the best view of the coast and tetakawi)

Now go have a cervesa and crab tostada on the beach, you've earned it
