Heads Up! 2nd Annual Montebello 10K!

Last year we held the inaugural event, see this thread and this one for additional information.

If you're too lazy to click, the executive summary is: up and down Montebello Road, 5 times. The "10K" is not kilometers, rather, kilo-feet, e.g. 10,000' of climbing...in just over 50 miles.

UPDATE!!! Date is set, October 22. We are thinking 8? 9? am start time. Last year we started at 7 and it was pretty chilly, and it was even earlier in October. We should still have plenty of daylight to crank this out. It's only 50 miles, right?!


P.S. Yeah, we know...it's basically just hill repeats. But it's challenging and fun anyway

Update: The event date has been set, mark your calendars for October 22 (note that this is a Sunday; the day after the OLH Low-key Hillclimb event). Details (including recommended start time, etc.) to follow soon.

Yes. But there is no support, no prizes, no records kept, or anything really. Basically we're agreeing to show up at roughly the same time and ride up and down the hill 5 times. Anything beyond that (including food, water, gear, etc.) is all up to you.

I guess I would say that this is even lower-key than the Low Key Hill Climbs.

Sorry for the late response...start around 8:30. Or whenever. Sounds like we might have a decent crowd out there.
