Are You Up To The Challenge?
Mount Palomar is one of the toughest bicycling climbs in California. It has been used two times now in the 8 year history of the Tour of California. For the past 6 years, Julian Active has been holding the Palomar Challenge – an opportunity for recreational cyclists to test themselves up this iconic climb. For 2013, A Road Bike 4U has teamed up with Julian Active to give our customers a discounted registration fee as well as some additional perks. Join us on Saturday, June 22nd for this epic ride! ARB has negotiated a preferred rate of $45 (and no Active.com fees) if you sign up at the shop by Wednesday, June 19th.
The challenge is limited to 250 total riders, and there are three ride lengths to choose from. Each one does the East Grade climb from Lake Henshaw (start/finish line), the same direction the pro peleton went up the mountain in Stage 1 of this year’s Tour of California.
