SoCal TT, 2022, October 8, 9, 10, three days/two nights

A three-day TT, mixed cars and bikes. We'll drive through Tehachapi and through the butt-end of the Sierras (Greenhorn and Piute Mountains, to be more precise), around Lake Isabella then to the hotel in Ridgecrest. We'll be at the same hotel for two nights so you can stash your junk for an easier drive on the middle day.

The middle/second day we loop back through the lower Sierras to catch Kennedy Meadows and other roads not generally reachable in a one-night drive; lunch in Porterville, return to the Ridgecrest hotel.

The third day will start out with an easy desert drive to the Big Bear area, then Running Springs, Wrightwood, Angeles Crest and end up at Purgatory Pizza for the celebratory hangout and fine dining.

The three-day schedule has two advantages: each day is an easier and shorter ride, and we gain access to roads too-far from the LA basin to catch in one-overnight runs. The longest single leg is 150 miles, all days are under 300 miles.

The precise route, and route files and maps, will be released the week of the event, to allow for last-minute changes due to fires, floods, volcanoes or Mothra's appearance.

The route

Route sheets, maps, Garmin files

All of the files are in one ZIP file here: TT2022.Oct.zip. The RWGPS "Collection" is here. If you use RWGPS you should be able to get all of the routes from there.

The route sheets ("cue sheets") are the .PDF files. Print all six if you want paper routes.

Garmin and RideWithGPS .GPX and .FIT files are included. If you need other formats let me (Tom) know and I'll make them ASAP for you.

If you have photos send them to Tom and I'll upload them here. JPEG format preferred, but PNG works fine.
