Description:
Start on Sierra Madre Bl. Pass through small gravel stretches, walk the bike if need be. They&#039;re short. <br> <br> Then Glendora Mountain Road is completely closed off to vehicular traffic. It&#039;s great. <br> <br> East Fork Road has very low vehicular traffic: extremely low in fact. The 39 coming back south has some traffic, mostly folks going in and out of the campground areas. <br> <br> Beautiful views, good climbs. Bring water and food. No available stops along the trip. There&#039;s one shop Just at the end of East Fork Road before the 39 but I didn&#039;t check out the amenities. <br> <br> Longest bike ride ever taken. I expected about 3 hours but didn&#039;t make it for 4 hours (probably because of 96 degree heat). Highly do not recommend riding in the heat. Go with a riding buddy if possible. Very safe nonetheless. <br> <br> Very scenic. Ability to access nature&#039;s beauty, unheard of being in Los Angeles. There are parts of the ride that is so serene its almost heavenly.
