Does anyone have a Magic Road code they can share with me for any of these routes? They are both very well-known routes in the Los Angeles, CA area.
*Angeles Crest Hwy - from Foothill Blvd in La Cañada to the Mt Wilson turnoff, or including Mt Wilson. Or all the way to I-15. I’ll take whatever you’ve got. Even just the Mt Wilson segment. But I would assume if someone has that then the whole thing has to be out there, somewhere…
Kind Sir, here is what I have garnered from various sources:
Mt Baldy Ski Resort - Wz2rJ2XlE3WG
Mt Baldy Ski Resort descent - dGfyUuYf9xha
Mt Baldy Glendora Mtn Rd v2 descent - HBuLhpRn6Jfz
Mt Baldy Lodge via GMR Loop - Xhf4SGVGdjjZ
Mt Baldy Village from San Gabriel Canyon loop - zdVqN9M9UZpU
Mt Baldy Village tour from San Gabriel Canyon - 8K8hdxdJq6uW
Mt Baldy Glendora Mtn Rd v3 - A20CGZ33muxE
San Gabriel River Bike Path - 3ZFeLO1lUasW
San Gabriel River Bike Path Full v2 - EWCzBnRfTdXz
Some of what you are looking for and some quasi related. I have only done two from this subset so I make to claims to what you get here (but my sources have been pretty good). Enjoy!
I had planned to ride from Foothill Blvd to the top of Mt Wilson, but I didn’t realize I only made the route up to the turnoff for the road up to Mt Wilson. But it’s still 3,500ft of climbing.
@Critmark It’s called La Cañada to Mt Wilson, code=vFFJdynwgo1O
I’ve already created a couple more routes on Strava to get the route thru to the very top of Mt Wilson. And another one from my old house. And one here in here in Las Vegas to the top of Mt Charleston. But I haven’t submitted them to make Magic Roads, yet.
I’ve tried it three times but still learning the tools. Also, my rides end up much steeper than the ride actually is. I tried to do one ride that I do outdoors a lot. I thought it would be nice to have when the weather turns bad. The max grade is about 9-10%. My Magic Road was above 18%. Clearly not doing something right.
I thought I did but a clear possibility I didn’t do it correctly.
Interesting though, I checked out one of the On Location Portugal videos that was available on RGT that had the same issue. In his opening narrative Cotty mentioned that the max gradient was 12% yet when I checked it out on RGT, there were sections over 18%.
