Bike Ride and Hike to San Gabriel Peak (W6 CT-019) 6161 ft, 13 Feb 2016

As a warm up for the coming spring bike rides, I decided on San Gabriel Peak: first a 2.9 mile ride up Mt Disappointment Road with 1000 feet of elevation gain, then a short hike from the saddle to the top with 400 feet of elevation gain

A nice ride up, starting before sun rise

The weather was nice, about 50F (10C) with no wind, and a clear sky.

Started on 2m, and also set up for HF

 

 

A hiker came by with his dog, we chatted a bit. Then they headed over to Mt Lowe.

Worked Dan NA6MG summit to summit on Sierra Pelona W6 CT-116. He was able to drive up almost to the summit this time!

A quick hike to the saddle and a fast bike ride down to the Jeep.

The traffic through downtown LA was slower than usual because the US Marathon Olympic Trials were being held. I watched the final half of the men’s and women’s races on TV after I got home

73!
