Southern California knows how to party!
When Golden Saddle Cyclery first opened one of our customers told me about a 100 mile bike ride in the Island In The Sky portion of Canyonlands National Park. I had just been in the park a week before, but without a bike so I was especially interested in hearing about the ride. As a big fan of the area, and the desert in general, I returned for a handful of visits before finally bringing along a bike this past March. And let me tell you, it wasn’t until riding the White Rim Trail that I felt like I had really experienced this magnificent place.
During a road trip to Los Angeles, the sunshine capital of the Golden State, our scheduled trail ride with Golden Saddle Cyclery conjured images of urban footpaths, blistering sun, and less-than-satisfying mellow terrain. After an hour’s drive into the dark, moody San Gabriels, we had an experience that upended our expectations.
