Los Angeles Triathlon Club
Bike Event
Angeles Crest Saturday Ride
Description Excellent climbing workout. Bonkfest. The first half is approximately 90% climbing.

Ride at your own risk. Occasionally, a car or motorcycle will pass too close. Listen for traffic & use a rear-view mirror. When cars pass, stay safely right of the white line. Don't depend on drivers to see you. Sun in your eyes? It'll be in their's too. Not feeling good about a situation? Get out of the way.

This is an excellent ride for intermediate to advanced riders wanting to build climbing skills & power.

Please have a helmet, front & rear lights, a rearview mirror, flat kit, and plenty to drink.

Comments Two primary routes - Upper Big Tujunga Loop or Cloudburst Summit. Both are excellent for accumulating vertical footage.

To avoid traffic, clip-in is at 5:30 AM. Meet at Starbucks on Gould Ave, La Caņada Flintridge.

Please arrive between 5:00 & 5:20 AM to set up your bike. (At 4:45 AM, the drive from Santa Monica to La Canada is 30 min.)

Please maintain safe speeds and drafting distance on downhills. Please watch out for cars & motorcycles. When rounding corners, expect them to be on the wrong side of the centerline. Keep downhill speeds low enough to be in complete control. Sitting up & spinning on the way down extends the workout.
