Thanks mucho for the answers. I've done Palomar, but never Baldy (which is odd, b/c I'm closer to Baldy). Anyway, I'll have to give it a whirl in the near future.

King Ridge Granfondo

It was said earlier in the thread, but the reason that group's membership is so huge is b/c cyclists have taken it over. If you read the discussions, and look at the pix, it's dominated by riders.
