San Gabriel River Trail Ride - Sat 12/16/06

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.

I used to do this ride every week, many years ago. We would have lunch at Seal Beach and return. It's a nice river trail ride. I might be up for this.

I just looked at my belly button, and I can assure you I'm an innie. Unfortunately, I can't make the ride, though. Nice avatar, herbm.

I'm a maybe at least for 50 miles of this. Since I have CL the next day, I'm not sure I should do the full 74! But it is a nice ride on that trail.

Ride whatever distance is good for you, I know you have the big CL the next day..this might be a good warmup??
Also I have some other non-bf'ers I am trying to get to ride...I dont think they will do the entire ride either...

I wish I could do this ride,when I was a kid I used to start at Santa Fe Dam and head down to the beach this would bring back memories. But I have to work on Saturdays, I will see if I can get someone to switch Saturday for me. I would start with you kids in Duarte, but head down PCH to SART up to Fullerton. Man that sounds like fun. errrrrr I REALLLY try to get this Saturday off.

LOL, I'm thinking of taking my SS MTB for that ride just to cruz up and cruz down. I might pack both bikes and make up my mind when I get there.

I would love to ride, especially for beginner like myself. The SGRT is my regular ride with my son, but we never made it to Seal Beach yet. Unfortunately, I just returned home from my open heart surgery this week & won't be riding for a few months

I might be able to meet everyone in Seal Beach and do the second half of the ride with the group, then head back home solo. I used to do the river trail every weekend but I'm starting to like PCH better.

Wow! Take care of yourself. There will be plenty of other opportunities to ride.
