The Firecracker Ride with the Trudging Buddies will take you through Elysian Park, Eagle Rock, up the Arroyo into Pasadena, Altadena, Arcadia, South Pasadena then back to DTLA. Be prepared to start climbing immediately, and for most of the first 20 miles, followed by a descent and rolling hills for the rest of the route. Stick around afterwards for a well-earned post-ride lunch in Dogtown.

Trudging Buddies is a sober cycling team that celebrates the power and strength in recovery through athletic activities and service.
