Great advice. The general store is now closed. I asked one of the locals, he said closed since July 2015, the high rent drove them out. Unfortunate, because the owner, Gary, was a good guy.

My philosophy is save the best for the end. I prefer the GMR twisting descent over the 100 mph Baldy Rd descent. A GMR descent is more enjoyable to me because it's longer and less traffic. ...

Sounds like the driver wasn't a mtb himself, just someone paid/drafted/volunteered to be the driver. In my limited roadie experience, the drivers on GMR are usually pretty considerate, much better...
