Probably riding from my home in Fontana, through Glen HEllen, San Berdoo, Highland, around Crafton Hills in Yucaipa and back.

Chris, I'll be doing the Tour De Francis up Angeles Crest on Saturday. Then maybe a small Mtb bike ride on Sunday. I'll be doing half of the 50 miler Rwanda mtb ride so I need to dust the old mountain bike.

Have fun Tb! I don't generally like mountainbikes as much as road bikes, but I do love the places they can take you!




Heh heh--Tour de Francis... be careful out there!

Just posted this on KOM Training Thread, but appropriate here too:

This weekend (April 7th) I'm riding Chuck Bramwell's (course by Marty Breen) 16 Summit Death Ride. This one starts from The Square (formerly Food Park) in Irvine. This is an OCW ride. 7:30AM Depart.

16 Summits, 103 miles, 7,800 feet of climbing. Should be fun!

Here's a link to the route sheet.

Thanks Rick, I was looking for a big ride to do this weekend. I found a route on Strava that is 45mi and close to 4k feet of climbing, all in the RSM, Mission Viejo area. I might do that. But this 16 summit ride sounds like fun too!

Final training ride before the Mulholland Challenge. On Sunday, I'm starting in Azusa, heading up to the Crystal Lake Cafe, up the backside of GMR, GRR over to Baldy Village, then back across GRR, down the front of GMR and over to Azusa. That should be about 86mi and close to 10k of climbing. If I'm really having a good day, I may try to go up to the ski lifts.

It's more fun to ride up the front of GMR, but I like to do Azusa Canyon as early as possible to avoid the OHV crowd. The lower part of Azusa Canyon can get a bit tight with some of those off roaders.

Changing my mind, will probably end up riding down to Euclid, up Mt. Baldy, down GRR/GMR to East Fork to Azusa and back home

Is this a MTB loop or a road loop? I keep meaning to go try Bonelli on my mountain bike.

I'll be sneaking in 2 SART rides this weekend between my various engagements.

I do the road. There are some mountain bike trails, but I've never done them. I've barely touched my mountain bike since I got my road bike.

Probably will check out Onyx Summit. Skipping the Glen Oak side of BA so I don't over do it. My ankle isn't quite 100% so if it doesn't feel good, I will just bail out. Also good time to try 11-32 gear I put in for KoM Rides.

I'm hoping to do a portion of this Saturday morning (GMR to East Fork and up to the Lake, then down Azuza) - although quite a bit slower than some. Ive never turned off GMR toward East Fork so it should be interesting.

I'll be taking that same route, minus Crystal Lake; maybe we can do the GMR/East Fork portion together. It'll be my first time down GMR that way as well, and I'm a slowpoke, so maybe we can go together. Let me know if you're interested; me and my partner will probably be at the base of GMR at around 10am; if you're interested we could meet up there.

No prolbem -- keep me updated on your weekend rides. I wouldn't mind having a partner at or near my level to go cycling with. Enjoy your ride today!

Nice one, when I saw the stats I thought for sure it was GMR->Village, but no....you got the same numbers here in OC. I'm gonna have to go try Silverado...it's not too busy on a weekend?

It's not very busy, but the road is narrow in some sections and there's "locals" traffic. There is a convenience store 1/4 of the way up the climb which is a hub of activity. Maple Springs draws mountain bikers and motorcycles. But for the most part, you have the road to yourself. Most vehicular traffic is used to cyclists on the road.

On Maple Springs trail, there aren't very many road cyclists as the road is rough and gravely in some sections. There are also about 5 or 6 stream crossings (deepest was about 4"). So you have to be cautious. There are large ruts and potholes in some sections, including at the bottom of some steep grades. So on the descent you have to be really careful. It's 3 miles to where the paved section ends. Beyond that you need a CX tires or a mountain bike. The descent rattled my fillings as I'm on an aluminum bike. It would be a good test for your Roubaix!

Here's an album showing this climb:
