Route

Long Course – Approximately 90 miles with 12,000 feet of climbing

Experience the classic challenging Mt. Baldy course that was last featured during the inaugural L’Etape California by Le Tour de France in 2017. The course features three major climbs of Lower Mt. Baldy Road, Glendora Mountain Road, Upper Mt. Baldy Road. Expect spectacular views, peaceful twisting roads, and an abundance of climbing. You will be enjoying every minute of the ride as you experience the Tour de France Legend and imagine you are climbing through the Alps in July. Pacing and nutrition are essential to staying fresh over the rolling terrain between the key climbs – if planned correctly you can arrive to the bottom of the final climb with enough energy to put out a good effort to the ski lifts!
