My buddy Slider, his old lady, and my old lady and I rode through the recently reopened Angeles Crest Highway yesterday on June 19, 2011, a day before my 48th birthday. You can see a video of it below.
We met at the Shell station located at the base of the crest at around 1:00pm. There were a bunch of HOGS there waiting to go up the hill. We went and got a quick bite to eat, and then we rode up as well.
You can see from the video below taken with my GoPro helmet camera that they re-paved a good chunk of the Angeles Crest Highway.
YouTube has recently upgraded my account so that I can post videos greater than 10 minutes. The video below shows the full 27 minutes of the ride from the first visitor station all the way to Newcomb’s Ranch.
Unfortunately due to my hitting the wrong button, I did not get the second half of the ride.
Most people only go up to Newcomb’s Ranch and then turn around and go back down the hill. We ended up riding all the way to the Mohave Desert down through the back route. It was a long great ride.
Enjoy the video!
