I'm going to be in the LA area with my bike during the first week in July and for sure want to ride up GMR. I will be staying with friends in the SF Valley (West Hills I think it is) and doing some riding in that area (and suggestions on that are welcome)... but I'd sure like to do GMR one day. Probably July 5, 6, or 7 would be best. Times are totally flexible but I assume it's best to start early to avoid the heat of the day.
The company of a local rider or two would make the trip more fun, so if you can tolerate a fairly slow older guy's company and want to ride GMR one of those days please post here or give me a PM. I'm 64 and weigh just over 200, but when my legs are rested I'm not totally incompetent. I'll be coming from a weeklong ride in Montana so I should have my climbing legs when we get to LA. It would be fun to meet some SoCal riders.
