Alvin started the Club at Sierra Madre. Rode east to Encanto Park in Duarte. Picked up the local east-siders and late risers, like me. It was clear blue skies, but brisk cold morning with light winds.
Mile 1: Went up the San Gabriel River Trail to the end.
Mile 6: Rode east along Sierra Madre. Left up Glendora Mountain Rode.
Mile 7: Start climb at Gate for GMR. Gate was open for traffic, but we had very few cars. It was great.
Mile 16: Eight mile climb to the Top of GMR. We stopped along the wall and took a picture.
Mile 22: Descent down the Backside of GMR is lovely. One of my favorite descents. Cool in the shade. Stopped at the Cafe.
Mile 26: Climbed out of East Fork. Crossed bridge and turned left back on Hwy 39.
Mile 34: Climbed and descended out of Azusa Canyon. Got on the bike path San Gabriel River Trail and back to Encanto.
