Second day with Milo P. from Sarrasota FL, destination the San Gabriel Mountains and Angeles Crest highway. I adapted the original loop to avoid closed roads and messy spots (i.e a sink hole on ACH past Newcomb's Ranch) or water damages in Acton and along parts of Soledad Canyon. So we opted for lunch in Wrightwood at the Evergreen restaurant. To get there one way: the back roads, Mount Emma, Fort Tejon, Valyermo and Jackson Lake. A bit of everything: the wide twisties of the Angeles National Forest road, the southern edge of the Antelope Valley high desert, surrounded by Joshua trees, then Wrightwood in the pine forest, at about 6000ft elevation. Needless to say we were hungry. The second half of our ride took us through over 40 miles of desert heat, the straight line of Pearblossom highway to connect to Lake Elizabeth Rd, then deep in canyon country to Green Valley. Gas up and and back south to Santa Clarita by way of San Francisquito canyon. Tired but happy we were on time to return the glide. Thanks again Milo for being such a friendly and happy rider. Now I feel like I know a bit more about Florida- the other sunshine state;-)

First day with Milo P. from Sarrasota, FL, who selected one of our finest and most rewarding summer classic rides: the Malibu Hills. Started at Glendale Harley-Davidson rental Department where Richard delivered excellent service. Milo got out on his shiny Road Glide in no time. First leg: Sunset Boulevard all the way to Pacific Coast Highway. Then after cruising through the 20 something miles of Malibu, we kept pushing beyond for a great loop including Point Mugu State Park, Potrero Rd, the sumptuous ranches of Hidden Valley and the 23 south to Mulholland Hwy: a back country road perfect for a slow & scenic ride among the rolling hills around Lake Eleanor. After lunch at Casa Escobar across from the Malibu Pier, we kept going up and down the hills to the ocean and back: Kanan Dume, Latigo, Malibu and Topanga. Then back home via Mulholland Hwy, the Infamous Snake (check out on YouTube!) and the Rock Store. Exhilarating!

Day 2 with Mish, Karen, Orbel and Armen. Angeles National Forest, Valyermo to Wrightwood. Lone Pine canyon to the Cajon Pass then uphill to Silverwwod lake, Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake. Grand finale on Scenic route 38, 45 miles of pure joy! About 260 miles total. One of my favourite loop. We hit 59F on rte 38 at 8500 ft... there was some leftover snow on the side of the road.

From Pasadena to Ojai via Fillmore and Santa Paula with fellow LAB expert Armen and best 2016-2017 customers Mish & Karen from Melbourne. We hit 118 in Woodland Hills but an early start allowed us to ride mostly in quite bearable temperatures between Ventura and Malibu:-)

Enjoy the ride!
Such a relaxing and friendly ride yesterday, May 2nd, 2017 to be precise, with Mauro Salina from Melbourne, Australia. First of, blue sky & warm weather all day. After picking up his Road King at Laidlaw's H-D in Baldwin Park, Mauro got to experience morning L.A. freeway traffic...scary, right, Mauro? Already one good reason to get a local biker to guide you through! To make a long story not too long, we rode Angeles Crest Hwy, the 9 miles, then some Angeles National Forest Rd to Aliso and Soledad canyons. We had lunch at the Half House cafe, in Santa Clarita. Our afternoon was another peaceful and therapeutic ride in canyon country: Bouquet, Spunky & Francisquito to Lake Hughes and then the grand finale on Lake Hughes Road all the way down to the glittering and filled up Castaic Lake. Going back to Pasadena, we were lucky to hit zero traffic on the 5 and on the 210.
Conclusion: even though it is "just a 1 day ride", from L.A. and back, you get so disconnected that it feels like you've gone a long way ( still...a 200 miles loop), and that's the beauty of the outdoor surrounding L.A. and of the many roads less travelled.
If you're coming to Los Angeles and you are a biker, be smart rent the Human GPS...bruno@ losangelesbikers.com
