Refuel, Relax & Explore
Here’s a chance to sample the same spectacular scenery as the Amgen racers as they climb into the mountains east of the Los Angeles Basin. The riders will have to see the view during their grueling climb from Santa Clarita to 4,906-foot Millcreek Summit atop Mount Gleason, but you can have a much less taxing workout on a mountain bike.
Prep for the Arrival of the Amgen Tour like a Pasadena Local
Pasadena has long been an enclave of fine dining, shopping, and pretty streets for strolling and shopping. Time your next visit to the February 21finish of Stage 7 of the Amgen Tour of California, and you’ll have the added excitement of seeing world-class racers whip past as they complete a series of 5-mile laps through the area around the Rose Bowl.
Take a Knobby-Tire Ride through Angeles National Forest
The San Gabriel Mountains surrounding Pasadena are etched with great mountain biking trails. Two local favorites—Arroyo Seca Trail and Brown Mountain Trail, both in Angeles National Forest—start just outside the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Altadena.
Ignore the Obvious (what roller coaster?) and See a Different Side of Santa Clarita
Santa Clarita and Valencia (among locals the names are used interchangeably) are best known as home to Six Flags Magic Mountain, but slip beneath the obvious attractions and you’ll discover mom-and-pop establishments that go back 50 years. Plus, you’ll get a peek at why the area is also known as Hollywood’s back lot.
