Flintridge Express (Medium)

Distance: 38 miles and 2100 feet of elevation gain (barometric)

All three routes are substantially different today right from the very beginning so you have to make your decision right away. This medium starts out by heading north through South Pasadena, Pasadena and the Rose Bowl area and up to the top of Chevy Chase (the highest peak on the profile below). This is mostly a gradual climb with a few short hills. We then ride down Chevy Chase to Eagle Rock for an early lunch. We then swing around and climb back up to Pasadena for a later lunch. After this, we simply head south back to the start. There is considerably less climbing on this route than on the long and none of the very steep climbs of the long.
