Flintridge Express (Short)

Distance: 30 miles and 900 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

All three routes are substantially different today right from the very beginning so you have to make your decision right away. This short simply makes a tour of the communities north of Monterey Park. It starts by heading north to South Pasadena and then east to Arcadia before swinging back west through Temple City, San Marino and Pasadena. It then heads back south through Alhambra and back to the start. Lunch is near the end. As you can see on the profile below, there are a few hills, but these are mostly gentle grades and the route never gets much above 700 feet above sea level.
