New Whittier Bike Trail by wildwes49

Sunday, 21 August 2011:  This morning my grandson Ty and I rode 3 miles to Liberty Park to meet up with my bike club.  Only one other rider showed up this morning, so it was just the 3 of us.  We headed north on the San Gabriel River Trail about 12 miles and exited to the right on San Gabriel River Pkwy.  We turned right on Rose Hills, Workman Mills and Pioneer until we arrived at the New Whittier Bike Trail.  We then turned left and followed the bike trail about 1.3 miles, turned right on Magnolia, crossed Hadley and into the shopping center.  We rode through the shopping center to the traffic signal and continued on Sorenson Ave.  At Lambert we made a quick right/left turn to continue on Sorenson to Washington for our breakfast stop at Hacienda San Isidro Grill.  It was closed and was re-opening soon as a new restaurant.  None of us were really interested in finding a new place to eat today so we continued on Sorenson.  Soon the other rider turned off to head home as she was close to her home where she started from.  We continued our ride turning right on Burke, left on Dice, right on Los Nietos, left on Pioneer and right on Mersin until we arrived at the San Gabriel River Trail again.  We headed south until we got to the Excelsior exit and returned to our starting point.  Just before we exited the river trail I met another rider from my club.  He told me he was doing a longer ride tomorrow that I might be interested in.  I will meet him at his place in the morning for an early start at 6AM.  To view the details of today’s ride, you can click on the link below:
