Chain Gang Climbs Chevy Chase

42 Miles, Steep hills

Meet: 8:00 AM

Ride-Out: 8:30 AM

Rain Cancels


Join the Chain Gang for a nice day of climbing, and some pretty views on our way up Chevy Chase and Lida! Rest assured that we will work with you on how to climb and descend hills safely, with proper shifting techniques. No One Gets Left Behind!

We’ll start in Griffith Park and head out of the park to Los Feliz before making our way up Chevy Chase. We get a nice long downhill to the Rose Bowl and a scenic ride through Pasadena for a well deserved break at Einstein Bagels, then explore the back roads through San Marino and South Pasadena to return past the Rose Bowl and up Salvia Canyon. We have another shorter climb up Lida past the Art Center, to practice more of our hill-climbing techniques, and then descend down through Glendale, making our way back to Griffith Park. This ride will help prepare you for our famous and favorite Thrills for Hills Ride in early May. We are friendly, fun and ALL skill levels are welcome. NO RIDER WILL EVER BE LEFT BEHIND.

EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to join The Chain Gang for this scenic and fun bike ride!

The route is at:

All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win! And remember, safety is critical. We will be following all bicycling laws and regulations as well as COVID regulations.!

Reach out with any of your questions or concerns. You really can do this.
