Dennis King, 284-4555, Action In Acton - Southern CA The original name of this ride was “The Frozen Tush Ride” because it was originally run in the winter and it can get cold out there in Acton. There was also another ride which the club called “Action in Acton.” But we no longer ride the original “Action in Acton” and we often ride this ride in warmer times of the year, so it was thought the name change was appropriate. However, this year we are riding it in December, so it might be cold enough for that original name to apply. The long route gets out to Acton and returns. You ride for miles along an almost deserted Soledad Canyon and you pass Shambala – the place where Tippi Hedron has rescued a number of lions and tigers. We usually stop to see if we can catch a peek of them through the fence. On the way back there is an optional stop at Vasquez Rocks. Lunch is traditionally in Acton where they recently built a new market with an improved deli counter, but last time we ran this ride, several of us continued on to have lunch at the Halfway House Café on Sierra Hwy. This turned out to be a nice local community café and I would go back there again.  So, you see this ride has a lot to offer. Unfortunately most of it is only on the long route. The medium goes half way to Acton and turns off at Agua Dulce It misses Shambala but does pass Vasquez Rocks and the Halfway House Cafe. The short stays mostly in the Newhall area. I wouldn’t worry too much about it being too cold. With global warming, we may never freeze our tush again.
