The Annual Mt. Wilson New Years Day bike ride will go for the 48th year in a row! The annual Mt. Wilson New Years Day promises to reach new heights this (next) year, since Angeles Crest is finally open, and we will be able to go all the way to Mt Wilson. More than 100 plus riders are expected to begin their attempt to climb to the 5,700' summit nearly 40 miles away.<br /><br />Typically less than half the riders who start actually make it all the way to the top. But just being sober enough to make it to the start of the ride is an accomplishment in itself. The first 15 miles rolls through the Valley on relatively flat streets, and looks more like the beginning of the New Year’s Parade than a serious training ride. The riders then reassemble at Foothill Blvd. and Oro Vista in Tujunga at approximately 10:15 am and prepare for the formal assault on the mountain. (Many riders who were still trying to recover from their New Years Eve celebration join the ride here).
