36th ANNUAL MT WILSON NEW YEARS RIDE
The 36th annual Mt Wilson New Years ride promises to reach new heights this (next) year. More than 100 plus riders are expected to begin their attempt the climb to the 5700' summit nearly 40 miles away. Typically less than half the riders who start actually make it all the way to the top. But just being sober enough to make it to the start of the ride is an accomplishment in itself.
 
The ride will formally begin at 9am in Van Nuys at the home of Steve and Tara Nix 7122 Shoshone Av. (one block south of Sherman Way, and 2 blocks east of White Oak Ave). You may contact Steve or Tara at 818-345-1590, or Ron or Sue Skarin at 818-882-9495 for more info, or visit http://socalcycling.com/Group%20Rides/annual/MtWilson.htm.
