Where: Glendora Mountain Road and Boulder Springs https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...m=1&iwloc=addr

Sounds good to me. I need the climbing miles, but not the speed this time of year. Dress warm, it could be quite cold up on the mountain!

Were you looking at starting at 7:00 AM or earlier?

Good question Rick...how long does it usually take? I need to be home (back in HB) preferably by noon, but could possibly arrange childcare for an hour or so if I needed to. I also wanted to get out there before traffic picked up on the freeway.

Hi Brandy,

When I'm in good shape, mid-summer, it's about a 2 hr. ride to Baldy Village, 1 hr. return trip. Now, and depending on how slow you are (or not?) maybe 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 hours to Baldy Village, 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hr. return?

I takes me 45 min. to drive from Whittier to the start (Boulder Springs Road in Glendora), so maybe slightly longer from your place in HB.

Of course we can watch the time and turn around sooner if it looks like you're running short of time.

Best Regs,
Rick / OCRR

Just GMR? It's about an hour for me. And then a pretty fast descent back down. I may be game. But can we push back the start to, say, 7:30 or so? (Later would be cool too. ) That way I can take my time riding out from my parents' place.

GMR up to the gate at the intersection with GRR. Takes me about two hours to get to Baldy Village.

"gmr" to me is going from boulder to the lodge... all those other initials are just that... extra initials! i've never done less than the lodge and it's always been called "riding gmr"... meaning going to the lodge! (until you started with the other initials... i had never heard to it referred to otherwise!)

Jason...I really need an early start for this one. Perhaps we could do staggered starts?!??! I'm not trying to be a pain in the butt, just trying to limit how much I am relying on my grandmother for babysitting, particularly with all of the LONG double century training rides I am going to have to use her for.

Civil twilight is at 630 and sunrise is just before 700. I'd like to be rolling as EARLY as possible.

7 is fine. I might run a bit late, but I'll do my best to catch up. Are we headed to the village? And if so, is the plan for an out and back or for a return via Claremont?

I know. But to me, Glendora Mountain Road is the name of a road that starts at Sierra Madre and ends at the intersection with Glendora Ridge Road. But you're welcome to believe I can ride to the village in an hour.

No... getting from the bottom of GMR to Baldy Village in an hour is pretty much out of the question. Maybe adxm can do it... but even for him it would be quite an accomplishment.

So, what is the acceptable time limit from the bottom of GMR to the village? Can a 2.5 hr'er join you guys?

The holiday bloat ride is too much for me, since I can only handle climbing at the start of a ride.

I'll be returning to Glendora via the reverse of the route we take from Boulder Springs to the Village. I really enjoy riding back down all those switchbacks! Starting at 6:30 or 7:00 AM would be fine with me, just let me know which (Brandy).
