The ride from hell

Recommended Posts

Five riders, assorted bikes.
June 12th to Big BearPasadena - Angeles Crest - 138 - Crestline - Arrowhead - Big BearJune 13th to homeBig Bear - 18 to Lucerne - 173 - Wrightwood - Big Pines - LittleRock - Angeles Forest to Pasadena
About 400 miles, forest to desert we saw it all. But ......
Friday about 2 pm we left Arrowhead enroute to Big Bear and the skies grew dark. By the time we got to Running Springs we were soaked and ducked into a gas station. The rain let up so we decided to dash for Big Bear. Two miles later it was a downpour, lightening, thunder, hail and topped off with rock slides coming off the mountain.
No one went down and we were drenched. Some of us did not have rain jackets which made it more fun. My pants got so wet the runoff filled my boots.
It was absolutely AWESOME. Well at least some of us thought so.
It was a freak storm that caught everyone off guard. We are all looking for lightweight rain pullover pants to pack.
I do highly recommend this ride!

If you're in for rain gear check out Tredz. They'll keep your feet dry anyway.
