Greetings LA/SoCal MBers!

Our April ride is nearly here! This month we have a particularly adventurous ride in store and at 240 miles it is also our longest ride to date.

We're going to be spending a very (very) full day riding through some very (very) beautiful canyons, along some very (very) rural roads, and some very (very) twisty roads, all on our way to explore California's historic Ridge Route Road near Grapevine, CA. Along the way we will be visiting 5 1/2 lakes:

Lake 1: Lake Piru
Lake 2: Castaic Lake
Lake 3: Lake Elizabeth
Lake 4: Lake Hughes
Lake 5: Quail Lake
Lake 5 1/2: Lake Pyramid (this one only counts as 1/2 because we won't quite make it all the way to the shoreline this year due to the Ridge Route closure, but we will get close!).


A Little Background Info: the Ridge Route was built in the early 1900's and is credited with keeping California from being divided into 2 states, North and South. It was listed on the National Historic Register in 1997 and remained a major tourist route until not too many years ago when extreme storm damage forced its closure. Happily, plans to repave and reopen the route in its entirety recently got underway. On this ride we are going to explore what of the Ridge Route remains open today. Please see the ride page for more information on Ridge Route conditions.


This is a spectacular day full of local history, all kinds of beauty, and a ton of riding fun. You will be very tired when you get home, but you will definitely be smiling! Full ride details are available on our meetup page.

Thanks everyone. We look forward to seeing you there!
