We met at Jones Coffee in Pasadena and rode through Old Town Pasadena, across the bridge to Eagle Rock. We rode through Glendale. Bill took the group up a bonus detour at Lynda’s request on Avondale and Swarthmore. We rode through Burbank and Sunland. The purple Jacaranda trees are still blooming everywhere. We turned up La Tuna Canyon. It started warming up. W made the Big climb up the canyon, over into Montrose and La Canada. Then, raced down Verdugo. We climbed Chevy Chase and Linda Vista and down Lida. We made our way along the Arroyo and then up Arbor for one last kick. Coffee and snacks. Bert and Erick did extra extra bonus work at the Rose Bowl for to check off some coaching requirements.
