Glendora Mountain Road

I’ve fallen a bit behind on the blog and it’s now been a couple of nights since we drove to the airport to pick up a key member of our motorcycle gang, Dad…great to have you back!  Excited to take him on a ride that would give the experience of the Ortega Highway, Aaron did a Google search where he found Glendora Mountain Rd through the Angeles National Forest.  This ride located just northeast of LA was rated 5-star for road quality and scenery.  The comment that sealed the deal described the ride as “…decided to take the ridge…makes the ride downright scary.”  This was the most incredible ride I have experienced to date.  The road had the best curves as it followed the contour of the mountains and switched back at elevation changes.  The curves were also banked so you could ride them faster and lean into them harder.  The scenery was phenomenal.

    Spectacular photos. I guess I did not realize how mountainous California was. Reminds me of Colorado. I have been to California a number of times..but never anywhere near the mountains. Looks like an incredible ride. Keep on riding in a good direction! 🙂

    How could there be a storm on the east coast when you are on the west one? Glad that you and Shannon missed it! Love the photos and that your Dad is back on the trail with you! We had guacamole tonight – just had to after all the talk of avocado picking!

    If you really want to be a motorcycle gang you have to call it a club, and talk about how you are all really family to each other.
