Angeles Crest Ride
Angeles Crest hwy -- three routes: Mount Wilson (40 + 5,164'), Upper Big Tujunga loop (46 + 6,011'), and Cloudburst Summit (67 + 8,225'). Advanced riders.
5:45 AM arrive & prep, 6am clip-in & go. Please check "LA Tri Club Angeles Crest Ride" Facebook page to see if the ride is on.
These are "loop" routes. During the descent back to La Canada, the routes facilitate a rejoin of the group. Everyone arrives back at SBUX, La Canada together.
Recommended gear: bright colored clothing, front & rear lights, high quality tires/tubes, (2) bottles of water/electrolyte, snacks for avoiding the bonk, cell phone, and tools to replace a tube or repair chain. A mirror is highly recommended.
Rider assumes all risks. Many areas have no cell phone coverage. On the road & shoulder, there is often glass & large rocks. Occasionally, drivers will pass too close. When being passed, and if it's safe to do so, please stay right of the white line (or as close as possible). On downhills, please be mindful of cars wanting to pass. Above 50 mph is fun but please don't go downhill in the aero position. Please don't draft downhill in aero.
