Join the Chain Gang for a nice day of climbing, and some pretty views on our way up Chevy Chase, through Pasadena and back up into the hills past Art Center!

We start in Griffith Park and head out through Atwater and Glendale before making our way up Chevy Chase. After a well-earned descent past the Rose Bowl, our route takes us along some rolling hills into Pasadena for a delicious break at Einstein Bagels, before heading back through San Marino, and South Pasadena back towards the Rose Bowl. Another climb awaits us as we make our way out of the Rose Bowl and up Lida past the Art Center. From there, we are rewarded with a nice long descent through Glendale and 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.

Please familiarize yourself with AIDS/LifeCycle COVID-19 Protocols prior to arriving at the start of the ride.
