SoCal: Chain Gang Loops the Studio, TWICE! – With La Tuna Option
January 15@ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
22 or 35 miles
Terrain: Rolling Hills with Gradual Climbs
Meet up: 8:00 AM
Ride-Out: 8:30 AM
Join us for our third ride of the year, an easy spin through Griffith Park and the Burbank Studio loop – with the loop done twice to get in some extra mileage, but keep it nice and easy! This ride is specifically designed for our beginner riders who are just starting their training – from Crystal Springs Picnic Area, we make our way through the park, past the zoo and Travel Town and onto the quiet streets of Burbank. We pass the studios and the Equestrian Center along Riverside, then head back into the park and out for another loop before returning to our starting point.
By special request, we are also offering an alternative longer option for anyone who is ready for a few more miles and some climbing: a single studio loop continuing up Glenoaks to Sunland for the climb up and over La Tuna Canyon, and back through Montrose and Glendale.
We will have plenty of ride leaders to guide you, and help you with any questions or concerns. As always, nobody is left behind!
Driving Direction: We will meet at the Lower Crystal Springs Picnic Area in Griffith Park – from Crystal Springs Drive, go down the hill past the Ranger Station, and keep to the right at the bottom of the hill at the bathroom building. Continue along the far side of the baseball field until the road turns to the left away from the field. We will be in that part of the parking lot, look for TRL’s in bright orange vests!
