    Bike Forums Inland Empire ride.

    There was some talk on the TDSS threads about an Inland Empire ride. I put together a route using routeslip.com that's about 63 miles with around 3200 feet of climbing. Here's the link:

    http://routeslip.com/map.php?map=8087

    The ride starts and ends at La Sierra park in Riverside. It goes through Norco horse country, Corona heights, Victoria Ave. in Riverside, and past the Mission Inn in downtown Riverside.

    http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?ad...w=1&name=&qty=

    I'm going to add a couple of optional loops that will add about 8 miles and 800 feet of climbing. One of the loops will be up Mount Rubidoux.

    I haven't set a date yet, but I was thinking the late September, early-to-mid October time frame would work out the best. The highs sould be in the mid-80's, and the hills should be a nice shade of brown.

    Who's up for it?

    Edit: 9/15/06 Changed routeslip link.

    Edit 9/24/06: I added a lite version of the route. 38 miles with 1400 feet of climbing.
    http://routeslip.com/map.php?map=8992

    Edit: The date is Saturday November 4th, 2006. Meet at 8:30, roll at 9:00.

    If I'm not working on the day of the ride, there's a good chance I'm in. BikeForums rides are always fun.

    I'd do it as long as it's a no drop ride.

    Definately a no-drop ride. I'll be printing out cue sheets, and I have four or five re-grouping sites planned.

    dog hair, you would drive out to I-15 and head north from there. If I were going too, we could potentially car pool from the intersection of CA-76 and I-15.

    Minardi is going to Champ Cars?

    i don't know, but i hope they spend a lot of money. i guess it depends on their driver line-up. christian klien has been offered a red bull sponsored car in champcar, too.

    have you seen the new chassis?

    If Minardi's budget is even 20% of their F1 budget, they probably would quickly establish themselves as a top team. Possibly the top team. They obviously have the expertise to get the job done, and they probably carry enough clout to draw the right people if they have the bank account for it.

    I haven't looked up the exact start location, but I assume you'd take the 215.

    [EDIT] Never mind... looks like the proposed route starts near the I-15/CA-91 junction. Looks like Tracy's territory.

    the problem is no matter how much cash they have, they aren't going to do anything without sponsorship.

    it would be great ot have a new team owner of that caliber, but i won't be holding my breath over this yet. there are rumors like this every year, and they almost never become fact.

    For both of you, the best way to get out to the La Sierra area is to take the 15 all the way out to the 91, then take the 91 out to La Sierra Ave, then go left, the park is right in the vecinity. My college (La Sierra University) is on Pierce Street which is about 2 miles from the start. I live about 7 miles form the start, and would probably ride to the start.

    I was planning a route to take the bike forum kids up from Riverside, up into Fontana, up into Lytle creek area and back through redlands, etc...

    Maybe I would plan that later in the year.

    15 north to 91 east. Go north on La Sierra about 1.5 miles. Park is on the right.
