The QERs are designed to be self-supported randonneuring style rides, with no SAG/aid stations. We will provide some supplemental food and nutrition to take along at the beginning of the ride, but please bring what you usually need for a long ride like this.


This ride is open to all active members. Registration is required.

NOTE CHANGES ON ROUTE:

Due to strong winds forecasted in the Santa Monica Mountains area, we are postponing that ride to January.  For tomorrow, we will be staying more local and riding to the Upper Big Tujunga.

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45127321
69 miles, 7600 ft of climbing

Meeting time: 7:30 am
Rolling time: 8:00 am
Starting location: Descanso Garden (intersection of Descanso Dr and Fairview Dr in La Canada)
Plenty of street parking available
Lunch stop: Backdoor Cafe & Bakery in Sunland (Complimentary drinks and snacks from PAA Endurance Team)

Since it's largely an out and back, you can choose to cut it short by returning at the intersection with Angeles Forest Hwy (mile 20) or at the Monte Cristo fire station (mile 24).  Return via Angeles Crest Hwy is also an option.
