Santa Anita Canyon (Long)

Distance: 70 miles and 2600 feet of elevation gain (barometric)

All three routes are different today and diverge almost immediately. This long takes a trip east through the San Gabriel Valley out to Claremont and back (actually covering much of the same area as next week’s “Foothill Footsie”). The trip east hugs the foothills along familiar roads and streets. After lunch in Claremont, the return takes a more southerly route which is less hilly. As you can see by the profile, the high point of the ride is in Claremont at the point furthest east on the route. It’s about 1000 feet higher than the start, but it’s mostly a gradual grade up to that point. The return is mostly a gradual downhill.
