Montrose Ride

The Montrose ride, which starts at Descanso Gardens in La Canada (about 3 miles northwest of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena), covers about 45 miles on it’s way to the official “end” of the ride in Sierra Madre.

Every Saturday (all year)

Start Time 8:00am

Main Start Desconso Gardens in La Canada, CA (1/2 mile south of Verdugo on Desconso)

Duration 2.5-3 hours

There is also a shorter loop which cuts about 10 miles off the ride. Both routes finish at the same place. Once you reach the finish, you still have to ride back to wherever it is you started from as the ride does not start and end in the same place!
