Chain Gang Rides The River Path
35 Miles, Mostly Flat
Ride ID 2524
Meet: 8:00 AM
Ride-Out: 8:30 AM
Stretch your legs and get your body moving after Thanksgiving, and join the Chain Gang for our first trip down the San Gabriel River Bike Path on the short edition of our famous River Ride – besides good cheer and wonderful company, you get approximately 35 miles of practically car-free cycling in beautiful surroundings! EVERYONE is welcome!
We start from Encanto Park in Duarte with a loop up to the start of the bike path in San Gabriel Canyon, and then turn around to make our way down to river path. After an exciting ride across the dam, we continue just past the crossing with the Rio Hondo Bike Path to the Pico Rivera golf course, our turn-around point for the short version of this ride. From there, we simply make our way back along the river to Encanto Park, with just one steeper climb back up to the top of dam.
This is a fun, easy ride where you can practice your cadence and spin technique, and enjoy stress-free riding away from cars and most other traffic. It’s perfect for riders of all levels and as always, nobody is left behind!
All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win! And remember, safety is critical. We will be following all bicycling laws and regulations as well as COVID regulations.!
