Date: December 30th, 2006
Location: Encanto Park, 751 Encanto Pkwy, Duarte
Lunch: Green Onion Restaurant, 1355 Huntington Dr, Duarte, CA 91010, (626) 301-0115 (after ride is completed - so bring snacks/fuel/gels! You know your fuel needs on climbs, so please be prepared. There will be a water stop on East Fork at which you can buy food - they take cash only - and food can be purchased in the village)
Please bring layers as the descent could be frickin' freezing (but fun, fun, fun). Note: this ride is climb-heavy for the first half. Second half is mostly downhill. Everyone should climb at his/her own pace and only do what he/she is comfortable with. Some of us are going to try and head up to the ski lifts, but if you don't want to do that for any reason, you can hang in Baldy to descend with the group. I may not even climb that day if I'm not up to it. So, NO egos on this ride. Just happy riders! If you ain't happy, don't come.
Some guys on BF have been sweet enough to map this for me (thank you, MadMike!), but I will put together a route slip with directions and my cell number on it. This is a non-supported ride (i.e. no SAG), but there will be at least two water stops. NO ONE will be left behind alone.
