SoCal: Chain Gang Climbs Chevy Chase

February 29 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

38 Miles, Steep Hills with Long Climbs (Additional Details Below)
Meet Time:
8:00 am
Ride-Out Time: 8:30am
Rain Cancels

Level: Intermediate

Join the Chain Gang for a nice day of climbing as we continue our hill training, and some pretty views on our way up Chevy Chase and Lida! If you are new to hills or would like a quick refresher, we will work with you on how to climb and descend, with proper shifting techniques. The climbs are on quiet roads and while they are a little challenging, they are very doable even for newer riders and we will have plenty of TRLs to help you.
We’ll start in Griffith Park and go for a short spin through Atwater and Glendale, then make our way up Chevy Chase. After a nice long descent into Pasadena and some short rolling hills as we climb out of the Rose Bow, we will stop for a well deserved break at Einstein Bagels. We head back through San Marino, South Pasadena and pass by the Rose Bowl again before we tackle our second hill of the day – another shorter climb on Lida, past the Art Center. We get to enjoy another long descent through Glendale, as we make our way back to the start in Griffith Park. We are friendly, fun and ALL skill levels are welcome. NO RIDER WILL EVER BE LEFT BEHIND.

Training Ride Leaders: Augusto Ferriols, Anthony Zamudio, Doreen Gonzales, Daniel Nava, Mel Embree, Chris Eisenberg
