Baldy Lite (11/24) -Not to be confused with Baldy Challenge

Baldy Lite ride

Encanto Park to GMR - Then up to Mt Baldy village via GRR

This ride is unorganized, unsupported, unsagged, you may be dropped. (I know I will be)
We never planned to have pie!

Rolling from Encanto Park at 8AM
751 Encanto Pkwy
Duarte,Ca 91010
http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result.ph...wy+duarte%2Cca
This right near the 210 and 605 interchange
Exit at Buena Vista or Mt Olive - Turn right on Huntington - Left on Encanto Parkway the park is on the left about 1/2 mile up
There is a parking lot and you will see lots of riders there! Many different groups start at Encanto...Make sure you are with the correct group!

Encanto PK
Herbm
MarkAJ
N2glock
JustMe
Robncircus
Scootcore
ME
Roadfix
spingineer
sshakari - and Jack - maybe
cole505
jsigone
mkadam68 and AJ - maybe
jschen
magicant - riding from home
Weekend warrior
Mr B and his friend Lee - Bringing coffe and donuts for Justme?
shprung - maybe
big john and the SFVBC crew

What our lawyers make us say:
This ride is in no way affilated, or any way related to the Baldy Challenge ride.
Except for the fact we are riding in the same area and are all BF members or maybe some aren't.
However we are more than happy to have the Challenge riders pass us on GMR.
Just remember...1st one up to Baldy is buying!!

OK, . . . I'll sign up Herb.

Edit: Unless NYG organizes something in LV, in which case I'll have to make one of those difficult decisions.

Didn't say it was a definite, just a hard decision.

BTW, . . . it is a little on the cool side up there early in the day, especially if the sun is hiding.

How many miles and how much climbing?

Also, where is Encanto Park? Is that near Ontario?

Thanks.

Dang- you SoCalers are hard core if that is the EASY ride! I don't know where that is, so I will probably stay closer to home.

Thanks.

No one ever said this was an easy ride....
Some of them are...not me...I have only made it to the village once...on 4 or 5 attempts...

This is past Azuza but before Pasadena if that helps..

Also if its too cold, I may cancel...it IS a ski area after all....

Right. I will be down in Redlands visiting family for T'giving and would like to get in some riding. That said, I probably don't have the time and ability to ride that far. I am thinking more in the range of 40 miles and hopefully starting farther East.

For it to be icy, we need some rain or snow, haven't had too much of that lately.

Herb, I have confidence in you, I know you will make it.

We will be getting back from Phoenix on Friday, it we don't get back to late I will take you up on the ride.

Would love to have you along!! Hope you can get back in time!

I think you can do it no problem...GMR is between 5-7% I think...maybe a couple of short steeper ones...GRR is probably 4-5%
Basically its constant, thats what is so hard for me....
As I recall you have a standard double...that will be a bit tougher, but you do Hill hazing on that...nothing that steep...
I think Eddie is going to do this on a standard as well....

As much as I am tempted to do this ride on my triple....I mean double, I think I'll be bringing the S-WORKS for this ride. I've only put 45 miles on the new BB and Pulleys and I'd really like to put them to the test. Anyways, I don't think that my stringbean legs could handle the entire climb in 42
