I'm totally bummed that I missed that ride since I didn't check my email until today!
Next time I guess.

Thanks TrojanHorse!

I had no idea who those photographers were but yes, excellent shots.

Our group consisted of Angela Levitt (Black/white kit on the Cevelo), Matt MacLaren (yellow jacket, red Fuji), Victor Cooper (PDM Jersey on the Scott), Linda Adams (Black/Blue kit . . . not Sky, on her Calfee) and me with my GT/Lotto jersey and riding my Ti GT.

Starting with us, but a bit further back by the time this was taken: Lauretta Rustad (Black/white Felt) and Omar Young (totally black Guru), both in Geroge Vargas REV Cycle kits.

Good to see you up there Sean! Also, Forrest, yes . . . check your email more often!

When we got to Mt. Baldy Village we had cinnamon rolls and coffee and a great time at Mt. Baldy Lodge.

Front row, left to right, Omar, Lauretta and Matt MacLaren. Somehow we missed Linda Adams in this photo . . .

So, here is a photo of Anglea (left) and Linda Adams (right) taken by Victor Cooper:

OK, sleeveless jersey & vest with arm warmers looks ********.

I about froze for the first couple hours - I was in my regular summer outerwear, so summer jersey & regular shorts & gloves. Brr. My garmin said it was 45 degrees for a long time. Thank goodness for the hill. :lol:

We got our newbie up to the shack and the light bulb went on "Hey, I can do this"... good times.

Saw more than a few improperly worn helmets in that gallery.

True TrojanHorse,

It was a bit cold on the way up! One of the advantages of going to The Village . . . the sun came out about mile 16 :) ! From then on it was
comfortable if not exactly toasty. We did spend about 1-1/2 hr. eating breakfast at The Lodge, so it was a lot warmer by the time we started back (and, of course, warmer still the more altitude we lost going down to Glendora).

Good to hear your rookie made it to the shack. Next time, The Village!

Let's see, you passed us a ways before the shack, then spent an hour and a half eating breakfast at the village and were gone before I even got to the village. I think I need to work on my climbing skills! :rolleyes:

True, we expected to see you again but for some reason never did. Must have been a timing thing. On the way back we descended Little GMR and had lunch at Camp Williams before riding back up Little GMR and descending Big GMR.

Yes, we (pretty much) camped out at Mt. Baldy Lodge for a long time. We got the last 3 cinnamon rolls, then Lauretta and Omar were about half an hour behind the rest of us. After eating we had a photo session (seemed like) with Victor taking lots of photos.

Overall a very fun day on the mountain!

I have never seen the famous cinnamon rolls, they look good. There are only a limited quantity every sat and sun?

Correct Lesper4, Missy bakes one pan of cinnamon rolls (the best on this planet) on Sat. and Sun. mornings. Ride fast, get there before they're gone! She makes them at her house and brings them down to the Lodge to cook them. Not sure how many cinnamon rolls per pan; maybe 12?

I saw you guys too. My friend who owns The Unlikely Cyclist is friends with George and Laurie of REV. One of my other cycling pals rides with REV and the Pink Ladies often. She just did REV's climbing camp.

I was prepared this time going up GMR as I had a windvest, arm warmers, long finger gloves and a warm cap under my helmet. Was comfortable on the way to the shack and FROZE descending.

I could not do the ride to the village as I had a prior committment at The Unlikely Cyclist. So I descended with Erwin8r.
