We are fast approaching the middle of November and are squeezing in another weekend endurance ride before the holiday madness takes over.
Please join us for the GMR Loop in a clockwise direction, as we are heading up HWY 39 with a short side trip up Shoemaker Road. Shoemaker's pavement ends at a gate, but if you feel inclined to do this route on your gravel bike, you can follow the road until the 'absolute' end for another stretch.
We return to East Fork Road for a water refill and food break at Camp Williams before climbing up the backside of GMR, followed by the glorious descent of GMR. Sierra Madre Blvd will take us back to Encanto Park. There are many options for some extra coffee or lunch in Glendora along the way.
