Wandering Thru Whittier

Sunday, December 31, 2017

Today is New Years Eve and like last week, I really have to wonder if anyone will show up today. More people may have plans for tonight than on Christmas Eve and to add to that, the club has a century scheduled tomorrow. However, I can think of a few reasons to show up today. It’s your last chance to get any miles in for 2017. Maybe you need just 50 more miles to make your goal for the year. Or, since the long route will give you a metric century, maybe you need just one more of those to top off the year. So maybe a few riders will show up after all. Like last week, I’ve scheduled rides that start nearby so that you won’t have to be driving a long way on New Year’s Eve. And, these are relatively easy routes to get you home early. Today’s routes visit Whittier, but unlike most of our routes to Whittier, they don’t do Turnbull Canyon and they spend a lot of time on bike trails. That should make for a quick and easy ride. Starting in Alhambra, the long and medium stay together as they first head east to El Monte to pick up the Rio Hondo trail south to Whittier Narrows. They make a first pass through Whittier riding the Greenway Bike Trail. They then loop south through La Mirada before returning back to Whittier for lunch. After lunch the long takes the San Gabriel River Trail all the way north to the Santa Fe Dam before returning to the start while the medium takes a more direct route back to the start. The short never actually makes it to Whittier, but does go to the Whittier Narrows area before taking the San Gabriel River up to the Santa Fe Dam and returning to the start. So why not join us today and bid a fond farewell to 2017 in the best way possible – on a bike. START: ALHAMBRA PARK in ALHAMBRA.  From the San Bernardino Frwy (I-10), off and north on Fremont 2 miles, R- Alhambra Rd to 4 blocks to Park. Park on Raymond on East side of the park. (long 65 mi and 1400 ft, medium 55 mi and 2100 ft, short 32 mi and 700 ft)
