The Big Tujunga Canyon Epic is an exciting ride for which the label “epic” is not an overstatement. The ride features a long climb via the “back way” to Angeles Crest in the San Gabriel Mountains and a rapid descent down the Angeles Crest Highway. These two ride features are connected by a rolling jaunt through communities in La Crescenta, Glendale, and Tujunga (which is part of Los Angeles). It is a loop course, for which the recommended direction is clockwise. The Angeles Crest portion of the route was ridden in a stage of the 2014 Tour of California; retracing the path of some of the world’s greatest cyclists is an added bonus!
