    hey, I'm gonna ride the route tomorow or fri. I'm trying to route it so the only (major) hill will be down hill leaving Elysian park on stadium way to riverside drive which heads back to the start at griffith park.
    there are some hills (Sunset blvd) in the echo park area where the park will be entered.

    ive ridden the course in about an hour but figuring a little stop off break in elysian park. once leaving elysian its like 15 mins back to the start.

    hope you and more L.A. socal riders can make it and make it a regular event.

    also once i chart the course i will print maps for everyone at the start(just in case)

    Anyone ridden the route already? how long does the the route take? I spaced and have plans, but I might be able to squeeze it in depending on how long it's going to take.

    If I can't make that I suck. It didn't sound that far, but I thought I'd ask to make sure. I'm looking forward to it!
