You would be crazy if you didn't bring your bike. There is some great riding within10 miles to the east or west of Azusa. Even more beyond that. You have Monrovia Canyon to the west which is a really nice fire road just north of the town of Monrovia and Chantry Flats where there is either fire road or singletrack north of Arcadia. And to the east you have the Monroe Truck Trail north of the town of Glendora and Marshall Canyon north of Laverne. You can pick up maps at Helen's Cycles in Arcadia. You can get a map and ride in the Chantry Flat area which is pretty much straight north of the bike shop. The guys there can tell you what's up too. there;s a lot more but that should get you going.
Thanks, we're skipping christmas down south this year, but probably will be down for spring break. I want to be prepared this time i go down. Seems like its Monrovia canyon that she lives up next to, but i might be wrong. So is it all fire road up then single track down? What kind of climbs? Whats you're favorite?
Cut my mountain biking teeth while going to school at Azusa Pacific. Marshall rocks, Monroe is a great ride, even Garcia trail is great, I rode up the fire road and then down Garcia, puts hair on your chest and scars on your body.
Well one of my favorites is riding up monrovia canyon all the way until it t-bones into the reb box rincon road then head west until you run into necombs saddle where you pick up the gabrielino trail which will take you all the way to chantry flats. i'm not certain but i think the rincon road is off limits for now because of the station fire. there is plenty to do if you drive up to the chantry parking lot. lower wintercreek/zion loop is also one my favorites. or for a short quick fire road ride you can take the fire road to the san olene water tank for a view of the city and mount wilson etc.
