Anyone for a ride starting in Pasadena on Saturday?

I'll have to leave the car at home, so won't be able to drive to a ride on Saturday. Anyone up for a ride from the Rose Bowl area?

Yeah, I know ... but I'm not fast. If I get no other takers, I'll probably end up doing that.

urbanknight,there are plenty of short cut options to the Montrose Ride. What time do you have to be home at so I can give you some options.

Just to verify - what TJ's we talking about? And where do you guys get on Huntington? I might just wait for you en route -

I might join you guys too - heading out from my house and dropping off right at home off Longden. If you don't see me there by 8:15 - don't wait!!

TJ's at Mission and Grand. We pick up Hungtinton at Fair Oaks and take it all the way to Santa Anita, and then down to Longden.

I'm waiting for the final word from my wife, but it looks like I'll need to be in Northridge by 10am, which means I'd have to be done by 9:30. I'd probably ride to the start to get an earlier start and more miles.

It's almost tempting to do the group 1 ride with the SFVBC and see if anyone wants to skip the rest stop, but the short routes with that club are monotonous and full of traffic. Their longer routes are nice, though.

If you think Montrose is too fast, then there are groups starts at TJ around 8, headed by PAA basically does the same Montrose Long route.

if anyone looking for the route, just go to Motionbased.com and search for Montrose or whatever related, someone must have post their data on it...I know I've done it a while back.

urbanknight, you could do the Montrose Ride and turn off on Santa Anita, which is at the end of the Campus Sprint. It'll take you up to Sierra Madre Blvd. where a left turn takes you back to Pasadena. It's one of many options.
