Want a mountain adventure ride and you have a 1600wh wheel? Join me this Saturday as we climb the mountains above Glendora, for approximately 2500 feet. Once we reach the Glendora Road, depending on our battery conditions we may attempt to continue to Mount Baldy for lunch. Either way we will return to the bottom on the road. I anticipate that the road will still be closed to car traffic this weekend.
Now regarding the wheel spec's. I say 1600wh, but that's only if you want to continue to Mt Baldy. From my personal experience with similar mountain trail climbs I can say with authority that any ~800wh wheel will be able to make the trail climb. But instead of taking the road down, you will descend on the same trail. You'll probably get a 25% battery recharge on the way down. I've seen a ~800wh wheel climb ~4600 feet, arriving on empty, yet be able to descend the same path with lots of power on the bottom.
So if you're up for an adventure, consider joining the ride. These rides are always very memorable.
There is plenty of parking here. Let's meet between 8:30 and 9:00, aiming for a departure ~9am
Bring some energy snacks and plenty of water. The route up is classic off-road riding and you'll want to stay hydrated. Cell phone coverage does not exist. I will be bringing my fast charger in case some of us decide to make a go for Mt Baldy. The ride back down on the road is not fully free because the slope is gentle. But I rode many miles on my test run and only consumed 2-percent of my battery. So we should be able to get enough charge at the restaurant to make it down the mountain.
RSVP if you will attend. If nobody decides to join me via RSVP then I reserve the right not to show up at the appointed hour.
Hope you can join me.
