I am calling this a Stagecoach Century Training Ride – but everyone is welcome, even if you are not doing Stagecoach…but we will ask WHY NOT??
I know you have been practicing your climbing so lets do some miles (for those of us not doing the Burrito Century or even if you did!).
San Gabriel River Trail –Azuza to Seal Beach and back – approx 74miles w/ approx 1500ft elevation
Saturday 12/16 Meet at 8:30 – Roll at 9:00
Encanto Park in Duarte is here
Take the I-210 Fwy – Exit Buena Vista St (this is east of the 605 frwy) – take Buena Vista St north to Huntington Dr – turn right onto Huntington Dr
Turn left on Encanto Pkwy – Encanto Park will be on the left about ½ mile up…
This is a no drop ride because I can not drop myself and I am always last.
99% bike trail w/ approx 3 street crossings only
There are a few parks along the way for water and potty breaks. If we are lucky we will have tail winds on the way back. The downside is there may be headwinds on the way down…
There is really nowhere to get food except at the restaurant at the beach. We don’t usually eat there, we rest for a bit then head back up the trail!
I usually take a banana or 2 and some PBJ’s to eat at the turn around at Seal Beach where we can potty and get fresh or salt water for the return ride.
