SoCal: Griffith Park to San Gabriel Mission

November 10, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm

24 Miles, Mostly Flat or 43 Miles Steep Hills
Meet Time: 
Ride-Out Time: 9:00am
Rain Cancels

Level: Intermediate

24 miles 900 feet (mostly flat) or 43 miles 2200 ft (hilly). This ride gives you a choice of a flat and easy ride or a challenging hilly ride to the San Gabriel Mission. The easier ride takes the LA River Bike Path for a short distance, and then crosses through Glassell Park, Highland Park and South Pasadena to the city of San Gabriel. After a break at the Mission we return pretty much the way we came. The longer ride heads over Chevy Chase hill and down to the Rose Bowl before going through Pasadena to the San Gabriel Mission. We will stop at the Mission for a short break and head back via the Rose Bowl and over Lida to get back to the park. This ride has two challenging hills plus an optional short but steep climb on Glenoaks. There are also some flat stretches in between.
