Hey there MeetUp friends. Here is a nice twisty-turny canyon ride that doesn't take us quite so far away from home.

The day will start at our usual meetup spot, Fern Dell, where we will gather, chat, drink coffee, eat amazing baked goods... from there we will head off to Mulholland Drive which we will follow all the way to Franklin Canyon Resevoir, then down to Sunset Blvd. We'll follow Sunset to the PCH, up the PCH to Topanga Canyon, Topanga Cyn to Mulholland Hwy. and then (this is the short loop part), rather than continuing out Mulholland as we often do, we will loop back along Old Topanga Canyon, a beautiful, really twisty, old tree covered route, that takes us back to the PCH.

At the PCH we will take a rest at the Reel Inn where we can enjoy food and beverage.

Then it's off for the more relaxed return leg of the ride which will take us down the PCH, and Ocean Front Ave before looping back along Main Street, up Montana Ave, back to Sunset Blvd, then up Sepulveda to Mulholland Dr. once again. We'll follow Mulholland back to Laurel Canyon and people can disperse as they wish along the way as is easiest for them to get home.

This is a great day of challenging, twisty, turny, riding, and beautiful scenery that doesn't take us quite so far from home, or last quite so long, as some of our other canyon routes.

This ride is recommended for experienced, confident riders, who are used to the gravel and other challenges that one can encounter in canyon riding. Speeds on the PCH can get up to 55mph+ so this ride is recommended for 110cc scooters and higher.

Please take a moment to read the group riding guidelines as in these twisty roads correct staggered formation and switching to single file in the tight corners, is even more important for safety.

MeetUp time is 10am rolling out at 11am latest.

Thanks everyone! Hope to see many of you there!
