CCC - Reverse Dam Ride - Level C3+/B1+ (34.7 mi)

CCC "C3+/B1+ Level" Reverse Santa Fe Dam Ride

ROLLING AT 8:00am (SHARP!)

Please arrive at least fifteen minutes earlier for last minute prep and call or text if you happen to be running a little late.


Ride Length: 34.7 Miles

Ride Elevation Change: Only 1077 feet of Elevation Gain!

Garmin Compatible Route Link: Click here for the Dam Route

Ride Level: C3+/B1+ Level** (Click Here for Ride Level Details)

Ride Description:

This ride is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and California sunshine. We'll be doing a reversed version of our popular City of Hope/Santa Fe Dam route that is predominantly flat the whole way through starting in the beautiful city of San Dimas, CA (right near the Butter Cafe & Bakery).

This is a NO DROP ride so you won't be left behind but do expect the group to split slightly at times. If we encounter any hills you will be able to climb at your own pace as we will regroup at the top, there will be several other quick regroups as needed along the way. Typically, a ride of this length will take about 3.5+ hours to complete including regroups and rest stops.


Come on out to recoup, recharge & recover!


We occasionally pay a post-ride visit to one of our local merchants to refuel and socialize a bit, so bring cash and/or a debit card if you want to purchase some goodies...

If you are running late or have any questions about your ability or preparation to do this ride, please contact me through the Meetup messaging system or call/text me directly

    "Small" Paul, that was a very enjoyable route that you had on Sunday's ride! Well done, Worthy of two gang signs!! Thanks to all the folks I rode with yesterday; enjoyed your company. Karen, not only did we yay-hoos keep in line: considering the cycling aspect: we managed to: "HOLD OUR LINE". Is that remark worthy of a 3 snorter?
