Famous Group Rides of L.A:

Saturday: (All Year Round)

The Montrose Ride:

The Montrose Ride starts at Descanso Gardens in La Canada (about 3 miles northwest of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena), covers about 45 miles on it’s way to the official “end” of the ride in Sierra Madre.   Watch out for cyclists joining the pack along the way as they often surprise riders who are flying along at speeds of up to 40mph, particularly along Huntington Drive in San Marino.

This is definitely a ride for more advanced cyclist, it is fast paced and demands a knowledge of large group ride / race etiquette.

Start Times

8:00am

Main Start
Descanso Gardens in La Canada, CA  (1/2 mile south of Verdugo on Desconso)

Start # 2
8:20 at Trader Joe’s Market in S. Pasadena (corner of Mission and Grand)

Start # 3
9:15 at Arrow Hwy and Cerritos in Azusa (the “long” ride splits off here)

~ 45-50 miles, 2 1/2 - 3hrs

Sunday: (All Year Round)

Nichols Canyon 
Fast training ride taking in a famous local climb, rollers, and killer views; not that you'll have time to take them in, the pace is fast, fast, fast.

Departs 8:00AM from Raymond Fouquet Square @ the corner of Westwood Blvd & La Grange Ave in Westwood.
