Join us for the CHAIN GANG “NEW YEAR, NEW START” Ride Series!
After a leisurely start, it’s time to step up our training a little so join the Chain Gang for our first climbing ride of the year with a trip up the fabled La Tuna Canyon!
From Crystal Springs Picnic area in Griffith Park, we start with our usual Studio Loop route and then continue towards Sunland, with our first pit stop at Sunland Produce. From there, we tackle the famous climb up La Tuna Canyon – it’s a great training hill with a steady and gradual 4.5 mile climb to the top, and a nice shoulder with turnouts if you need to take a break. With the help of our wonderful ride leaders, you will make it to the top and nobody is left behind!
Our reward for the climb is a fabulous long downhill to Montrose for a well deserved pit stop, and another long descent through Glendale, all the way to Sonora and back into Griffith Park again. We look forward to riding with you!
Training Ride Leaders: Doreen Gonzales, Augusto Ferriols, Mel Embree
