This ride was started in the late 70's by two men John Jenson and Joe Beer. The ride started from Descanso Gardens at 8am. but John would always be late, thus 8 10. I took it over in the late 80;s and it became so fast that people were getting dropped out of LCF thus the Trader Joe's start. Originally the  riders would take a break at the halfway point for drinks until the late 80;s  Now the ride has 4 start times (7:30am, 7:45am, 8:00 am and 8:30am) and rolls every Saturday. 
 
We will do the slower and shorter version of the Montrose ride as an introduction of the route and what to expect if you intend to ride it in the future. The ride takes us from Trader Joe's and ends at Sierra Madre.  A stop at Unincorporated Coffee or Highland will be staged depending on the size of the group. This ride takes us from South Pasadena to as far as Glendora, for a good 45 miles with very little climbing (1800 ft).
