Little Old Ride through Pasadena Professional Review and Guide
"According to a legendary 1960s Jan and Dean song, Colorado Boulevard attracts speeding drivers who are “terrors” of the road. This ride uses Colorado Boulevard—albeit in Eagle Rock (L.A. community), not Pasadena—which has become much more bicycle- friendly since the days of that song. So fear not the old lady! The Little Old Ride through Pasadena is a 17.5-mile loop through Pasadena, Eagle Rock, and Glendale.
Today Pasadena is well known as the home of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Norton Simon Museum, Art Center College of Design, Rose Bowl, and of course the Tournament of Roses Parade. The ride officially begins by heading south on North Arroyo Boulevard from Seco Street."
