Ride Maps - Where will you be going?

I wanted to start this thread to see what others are planning for their trips.


I live in San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles) and we have some great Canyon riding over here. To begin I've uploaded (easy to do in Google Maps, with a little patience) my first 'map' of the ride I'll do today.


More to come and please share yours...

Beartooth Highway baby in Montana/Wyoming. One of the best from what the cruiser riders tell me. Can only get up there after a hot summer about August because of the snow. I totally recommend it.

Wow, I bet that's nice. I've been to the Utah/Wyoming boarder (fishing the green river) and absolutely stunning. I can only imagine more north of that, nearing Yellowstone, it's equal or better.


Nice Map!

Nice Map!
Thanks. I hope you can make it sometime. Might be 80 degrees under the mountain but always cold up top.

I did this run as well and it was great. Not the best of roads, but I saw many cool things along the way.


Plus I got to see the Hollywood Bowl from up above. That was cool. And of course the HW Sign is also up there too (I see that darn sign every day at work though).

Yes that's some stuff I would love to see. Looks like a route with a lot of curves. That's always fun.

Awesome idea! the 33 looks really long (I've never really been past lake casitas), so this will be new to me

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll plan this out after I do my next weekend run (Solvang).
