This is a nice 100k that includes one of the best cycling roads in Southern California, Glendora Mountain Road.  There is about 5,000 feet of total ascent, but the gentle, steady gradients and terrific views will take your mind off the hard work.

The ride begins in Pasadena, follows the usual surface streets to GMR, then climbs up to the high point (3300 ft) at the Caltrans Maintenance Shed.  From there you will descend down the backside of GMR to the East Fork Road and ride along the San Gabriel river.  You pass the Camp Williams Cafe (which may or may not be open), after which you will head over to Highway 39 where you will go 0.5 mile up the hill to the OHV (Off-Highway Vehicle) area.  There is a water spigot on the south side of the little building near the entrance.  Next you will turn around and descend out of the mountains on Hwy 39 and head back to Pasadena.

There will be no SAG support for this ride.  Riders should carry enough food to get through the ride.  There are places to fill up water on the route.
