    I'm housesitting in Glendora this weekend and I haven't yet taken the car up GMR.

    I'd love to put together a CRUISE - note that word there - cruise - meaning this is not a 10/10ths go-as-fast-you-can run. If you want to do that, go do it with a different group - this is about getting out, enjoying the cars and the scenery and maybe getting to shoot a little lead-follow Fiesta footage with my GoPros (if you have one please bring it along!)
    No street racing will be tolerated. Spirited driving is cool- outright racing isn't (let's save that for the track). :)

    Let's meet up around 6:30 in Glendora at Donut Man, depart by 7, then heading up GMR from Glendora side, the cruising back down via east fork and ending at Legends on Rt 66 back in Glendora. going this early will allow us to avoid both the damn bicyclists who have no goddamn business riding up there and the five-oh. Of course, a stop at "The Spot" where Glendora Ridge Rd, East Fork and Glendora Mtn Road Converge is a must for photos.

    Kind of late to get started.
    The bears are out of their caves by then.

    What time of day would you suggest? how early do we need to be out to dodge ponch and john?
    I would highly recommend against screwing around IN glendora itself as Glendora PD are dicks - even to other LEOs

    Again, this is more of a cruise than anything else - but then again the golden hour for shooting video is early...

    I have always found getting on the road by 8:00 AM best as this also beats the bicycles out.
    Unless you like target practice.

    I can see this going to be a busy season.

    We have another track day scheduled for 3/8/14.
    However I am sure I can make this.

    Yep. At the very least Derek will be joining us, I'm not sure who else is coming but oh well a smaller group is easier to manage.

    Let's park in the back lot behind donut man so we have more space to gather.

    It doesn't seem like we will need much space.

    How did it go? I was roped into running a local 5K foot race instead. Yes, I know it goes faster in the FiST! :)

    Wish I'd seen this sooner, GMR is my "home" road. I might head out there tonight actually.

    I wish I hadn't been so busy. I'd have gone. I grew up in Glendora and have spent a lot of time on that road.

    There is of course no reason why we can't do another run.

    Nice looking run! I'll have to join you guys one day. With all of the track days reently, life stuff has gotten in the way of canyon runs.
