I live in El Segundo, just south of LAX.

I've ridden on the "Aliso Creek Bikeway" before.  I believe that @Marty Backe has ridden it before also.

(It crosses under the 5 fwy near Alicia Pkwy.)

I'll ride in much of the area, but I haven't done much riding that far south (relative to where I live). Keep an eye on the Local Group Meet Ups section for ride announcements or post our own.

The San Diego Creek Trail looks like it would be a nice ride.  It's suppose to be about 9 miles from end to end.

@abinder3, Yes, San Diego Creek is a pleasant cruise.  I usually run various loops (shown in the blue lines below) for approximately 25 miles.

How far do you like to ride, typically?

The most I've ridden in one day is about 44 miles; the bike path between Pacific Palisades and Torrance Beach and surrounding streets.

That looks like a fun path.  I only wish it was farther South.  I'm guessing you have a Monster if you ride 44 miles.

25 miles is a nice ride (I'm usually just warming up after ~10 miles). Your route looks like a good group ride maybe. What wheel(s) do you ride and how do you ride; trails, street, off-road, fast, slow ???

I agree it should work smooth for a group.

I'm riding an MSV3 820wh.  Also have IPS121.  Trying to get a MSV3S+ 1300wh.

I usually stay under 16 mph, with some off-roading and mostly paved bikeways.  I like scenic variety and try to include slow tight practice points in the route.

We'll definitely have to do a group ride there.

No :( There's been a delay in the shipment from China. I'm now expecting to receive it the week of June 19th. My ACM still works though :D

In warm weather, even a 1300 Wh ACM/msuper V3 should be able to give you 44 miles flat riding if you're not too fast. You might be below 20% battery and getting beeps/slow downs at the very end, but it can be done from 1300Wh on quite reliably.

Agreed. I know that I can ride (fast) 45 miles solid on my 1300wh ACM, with maybe 15% battery remaining.

That would be awesome for me, getting to ride with your group without having to drive to LA.:P

You really get around. The only place I haven't ridden is the Pasadena area. Since I live near the 5 & 605 I do a lot of river trail riding, Santa Fe Dam is a fun area to ride.

I'm curious, what part of Pasadena in particular are you riding. Are there good trails there?

Pasadena downtown and city hall area :) Enjoying the view of happy shoppers and restaurants.
