    BALDY CHALLENGE (11/24) -- Replaces the Pie Ride

    ** THANKSGIVING BALDY CHALLENGE **

    Think ahead a bit -- it's the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The gravy and other remnants of the Thanksgiving gorge-fest are still coursing through your veins. You need a nice long ride.

    SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24TH -- THANKSGIVING BALDY CHALLENGE

    This ride replaces the Pie Ride, which was called off due to the fires in San Diego County.

    Route slip for the main route is posted at the bottom -- other details will be posted soon. Note that this is a very challenging ride -- about 100 miles and 10K feet of climbing. Plan on an early start -- close to first light. Also plan on a big post-ride meal. You can't let your blood-gravy levels dip too low.

    Meeting Location (main route): 5701 East La Palma Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92807-2229

    Meet time: 6:00am
    Roll time: 6:30am (sharp!)

    Who's got game?

    Participants:

    mateo44
    mel44
    grumpy pig
    voltman
    extort
    whitecarbondude (later start [7:30am] with "fast group")

    Post Ride Meal:
    La Capilla
    5638 E La Palma Ave
    Anaheim, Ca 92807
    (714)779-1200

    NOTE: The alternative route is the Baldy Lite route. Participants listed in the associated thread. Please sign up there if you haven't already.

    I'll meet up with you guys but I'll start closer to Baldy, probably Encanto. Otherwise, over a 100 miles at your pace, you boys (and Mel) will drop me too early.

    Last time I did this ride from Anaheim it kicked my butt and hopped on Mandy's SAG vehicle midway up GRR. This time I'm doing this ride with Joy.

    This time, perhaps you should use a geared bike!

    Sounds good.

    There are enough "modified route" participants to warrant a separate start time/location for those folks. Anyone want to propose one? If you do, I'll add it to the OP.

    I'm in it to finish it.

    I might be in for this, but probably only for the Happytime version of this ride. Still sorting out the family schedule for that weekend....

    Why don't we wait for your route up from Anaheim, then plan to connect somewhere along the way, or just plan to meet at the GMR/GRR junction once some expected tmes are determined.

    Last time, some peeps joined at the base of GMR. I can understand wanting to start at Encanto so as to get a bit of warm-up. Once the details get worked out, we can give them a earliest arrival at GMR time so that they can plan on joining up at GMR for the GMR/GRR section of the ride.
