Vandenberg Main Gate

May 10, 2022 @ 8:30 am

This route can be done by many in the group. It looks daunting but with the understanding that the main climb is 20 minutes. You can get a constant 6 mph and steadily conquer this climb. The whole ride is 34 miles with 2185 ft of climbling. Bring your granny and I don’t mean your mother’s mother. The feeling a rider gets after making the climb into the visitors parking lot is sometimes giddy. If this doesn’t happen, you may have your money back. This ride leaves from the Panera parking area. No one is dropped and if there is a rider struggling you will have company.
