    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.

    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....

    58 miles, 5961 ft. without the trip to the lifts. I take it SFBA is San Francisco Bay Area??

    This is going to be the 2nd time you make it Herb.

    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.

    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
    I'm a Cowboy... and on an S-WORKS I ride...and I'm wanted...wanted... dead or alive...
