    which other forum? the cycling.whatever one?



    i think we'd still have the traffic here.... it would just be all grouped together and easier to find... plus we still can visit the other areas!!!!

    where we would lose traffic... is if we tried to take it completely away from here... to another forum... another url... altogether!

    Extort and/or OC Roadie, would you please comment on how the Baldy challenge compares with the Pie ride? Both by the numbers and subjectively. (No 1000 foot climb at the 100 mile mark this time?) Thanks.

    It was a fun throughout. But I'm hoping my next century might be a closed loop century.

    The Baldy Challenge ride that OC and I did last year started at the 91 and Imperial Highway and worked out way northeast through Carbon Canyon (some people call it a climb , but this early in the day it feels like nothing ) and into Pomona. We continue north to San Dimas and up to Glendora Mountain Road (so everyone that does the ride on Labor Day has a great preview of the challenge ), taking that to the village and the lifts . From there we head down Baldy Road to Claremont and lunch with plenty of choices. We finish the ride by dropping back into 'the OC' by way of Brea Canyon.

    Total climbing on the day..... somewhere around 10k (OC, ?)
    Total Mileage, 103 without the lifts, 111 with...
    total exaustion.... in 104 degree heat, YES ... this time, we should be fine . Remember that this is an all day ride as we will be gone from about 7 to 4... and some people might need lights this far into the year.

    We need to think about t-shirts this time!

    [QUOTE=chimivee]Are you kidding?! There's gotta be some absolutely awesome (ie: "torturous and scenic") riding in CO. Where you moving

    It shouldn't be too hard if I'm in CO and if I'm still working in Jersey then I should be able to get in a nice foliage ride. It's just that I'll miss GRR and Baldy quite a bit.

    I'm most likely to the Denver area or perhaps Fort Collins. If any of you you are in Colorado and have a bike, then you can use my place to crash -- seriously. You can load up the VW bus w/ BFers and bikes and take a road trip to Colorado for some great riding.

    By the numbers: When Extort and I did this, we turned around at the rest stop, just before the Icehouse Canyon bridge, we had 103 miles with 8,000' of climbing. If you go the lifts, figure another 7 miles and 2,000' (you probably know the elevation gain from the bridge, better than I do )

    Subjectively: The Pie Ride is a nicer ride. The terrain and scenery is better. On the Baldy ride, there's a fair amount of urban riding. The Baldy Ride has some cool sections (Carbon Canyon, San Dimas and the GMR/GRR/Lifts climb, but I don't think it compares to coming down Palomar into Lake Henshaw and then cruising country highway. Also Bandy Canyon is one of my all time favorite areas, so it's hard to top that. As far as difficulty goes, the Baldy Ride is probably a little easier, the numbers are really close, but after the Ski Lifts, it's really just cruising on the way home, nothing like Lake Wohlf*** Rd at mile 90 This should be a great ride, there's the option of hanging out in the Village and cutting out 2,000' of climbing, but still ending up with 100 miles. I'm really looking forward to this one, it should be a great time
    If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, then come sit next to me.

    I bought my van in Denver! I just might take you up on that sometime. I like CO. I hear there's some good MTBing out there too. Rocky Mtn NP is awesome.

    I'm definitely in for this one.

    True...but given that Highland Valley/ Bandy Canyon is by a good margin the best stretch of road within 40 mi of my place, I'll be happy to see somewhere else. Pretty much every longer ride of mine passes through there...

    Guess I've never done that side of Wohlford so far into a ride...but is it really that bad? It's a somewhat ugly climb with usually heavy traffic (drunk casino traffic no less) and no shoulder..but not too long or steep. I would think the Baldy ride is significantly harder. We'll see =).

    After 90 miles and 9500 feet of climbing... Lake Wohlford is fairly mean (not difficult, just mean).

    It is like my double last year in Death Valley, mile 170 I looked at the route slip and saw that the next rest stop was at mile 177... and that hill up to Hell's Gate nearly exploded my heart!

    Just realized I'm supposed to attend a wedding that day with my sister. I don't know the bride and groom, so hopefully my sister will let me out of my commitment to going.

    I've confirmed with my sister that it's okay if I don't go to the wedding with her. So I'm in.

    Finally got this moved into our forum...

    I believe that everyone is planning on the Baldy Challenge for the route on this day, and I have loaded the route sheet into the first post.

    Now I just need to find the original thread that has photos and a great ride report from OC Roadie and post a link!

    Hey Extort,
    After mucho searcing, I found the orginal ride report, Unfortunately the pics were lost when BF had some issues last year, any non-linked pics were lost. I may still have these on my camera, if so, I'll put them back into the old thread. I thought I'd start a new thread for this ride, after the long weekend, there's enough ride planning going on right now
