    San Gabriel River Group Ride -Encanto Park-

    I have been looking around for a group ride that is not too fast in the area. The Rose Bowl group rides are too fast and the others still seem out of my league. I figure I would ask if anyone here is interested in getting together and riding the SGR.


    Friendly group ride for us that starts at Encanto Park in the city of Duarte.

    google map of Encanto Park

    We can ride down south on San Gabriel River to the city of Montebello and back

    It is about 30 miles round trip

    Ride info


    Date: Sat 08/01 or Sat 08/08 (This sat may be too short of a notice)
    Time: 8am
    Location: Encanto Park
    Distance: 30 miles
    speed: 12-18 mph

    Who is in?

    What other rides have you been considering? At any rate, I cannot. Saturdays I do the Montrose Ride.

    You could try this ride. It was started to help riders who want to go slow acclimate to group riding skills & techniques. Wednesday nights, 6pm-ish at the Rose Bowl (no, not the fast Tue/Thu RB ride). I don't know if they've done anything lately, but if you register & post on the forum about it, maybe it could start going again.

    You might pick up a couple riders if you post this to the SoCal Forum...

    Great ride, 40 miles and you only have to cross 1 major road; Arrow Highway. Kinda seedy throug Whittier Narrows and Pico Rivera, but in a group its ok. Comming back, the grade up the dam is the only real hill in the ride.

    it ends about 2 miles north of the Encanto park, from there it is all uphill on the road with cars


    I'll try this again with a post on socal and another forum as well.
