We are Monrovia Cycling. We are a group of men and women who are not out to be the fastest cyclists, yet certainly can hold our own. We chit chat our way to places like Claremont, Ontario, Glendora Mountain Road, Griffith Park, Sunland, Whittier, Carbon Canyon, Long Beach, La Habra…….
No drop policy. We’ll help you learn how to change a flat or repair your bike on the road. We do not ride in the rain.
We do make allowances for each other’s busy personal lives. We ride Saturdays and Sundays. And most holidays. We start early on Saturdays at Monrovia's Recreation Park (between 6 and 7:30 depending on the weather and the distance and time of year) Sundays, the ride starts at 7:45 at Monrovia's Recreation Park, travels to South Pasadena via Huntington/Monterey where we often stop for coffee in order to solve the problems of the world. Loop the Rosebowl and return.The Sunday ride is more casual so we often meet each other on the way. Be responsible for yourself; carry identification, your own medical insurance, follow safe road rules, cell phone, bring water bottles, tubes, food, cash and a fun attitude.
Come join us.
Monrovia Cycling is simply a group of being riding together, we are not a formal group.
