Time for another ride up to Baldy Village!

For those die-hard hill-climbers among us, this is always a satisfying ride.

This is an informal ride, just some friends getting together to ride up to the Village.

Meet at Pioneer Park in Azusa (on Sierra Madre Blvd) at 8:30am. We'll leave at 9am sharp. Mapquest will show the way.

We ride to Glendora Mt. Road, up to Glendora Ridge Road, along the switchbacks to the Village, then back down Baldy Road to Claremont and food! The entire ride is about 50 miles, about half uphill, and half downhill.

This is an epic climb, with a very exciting downhill. The climb is about 5000 feet in 22 miles.

I'm assembling a list of folks who will be coming, so please let me know, so we know to expect you.

It's always a great day. Let's hope for good weather...
