Okay, I haven't been up to Baldy ONCE this year (dreadful). And since I can't get off work, I'll not be in the Eastern Sierras taking on that double (why, yes, the violins are very comfortable on my shoulder, thank you for asking ). I'll need a mountain and some company and some food and a few stiff cocktails to console myself. Should you want to join on any part of this pity-fest, let me know. But as for ride details, here they are:
Date: Saturday, June 2nd
Time: 7:30am meet; 8:00am roll
Meet Location: Encanto Park, 751 Encanto Pkwy, Duarte
Mileage: Approx. 70 roundtrip we will climb up Hwy 39 and Little GMR (GRR) and come back down Big GMR
Elevation: Approx. 5,000 ft
Water Stops: Two- East Fork on the way up and in Baldy Village. If you'd like to be a Fred and wear your camelback proudly, please do! I may join you if it's hot that day! Regardless, I am a Fred...
Route: Post Holiday Bloat Ride on 12/30 - Last ride of 2006
Pace/Type of Ride: Baldy isn't easy, but this is more a "social" ride than a training ride. No one will be dropped, but as with all rides, please know your level and come prepared.
Lunch: We can grab a snack in the village before descending and then lunch at RANCHERO, located at 1501 E. Huntington. http://www.sangabrielvalleymenus.com...heroduarte.htm
