After two dry winter seasons made skiing at Mt. Waterman all but impossible, owners of the facility in Angeles National Forest plan to open up their small mountain resort to cyclists next month. Mt. Waterman, located about 34 miles north of La Cañada Flintridge, was unable to allow skiers and snowboarders on the slopes the last two years due to a lack of snow. The owners do not have the capability or the funding to make snow and rely on nature. Six bike trails, as well as scenic lift tours to the top of mountain, will be offered in the summer season starting in July, according to the resort's Facebook page . The official opening date has not yet been confirmed.

Assuming the intelligence that has reached our ears is true, Caltrans will at last reopen Angeles Crest Highway between our city and Angeles Forest Highway this week, but not before the agency finishes holding a dignitary-filled press conference set for 10 a.m. Friday. That’s all as it should be. Those workers who have been chipping away at the extensive project since the heavy rains of January 2010 are probably proud the work has finally seen completion. They deserve some thanks for their efforts, and what better way to do that than to stage an official ribbon cutting?

Lori Follis had always wanted to do something. She wanted to be able to help her friends and their families dealing with HIV and AIDS. But she wasn't sure how. Until, that is, she learned about AIDS LifeCycle through her biking group at Stan's Monrovia Bike Shop. "I never really felt like I could make a difference," said Follis, a La Cañada resident and area yoga instructor. "But this gave me an opportunity to do something and have an impact." AIDS Lifecycle is a fundraiser for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center that brought over 2,000 cyclists together to ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles over a period of seven days.

Less than a week from today, La Cañada Flintridge resident Don Sheppard will roll into Charleston, S.C. on his bike, the finish line for a ride that will have raised $63,078 for charity. Sheppard said in a phone interview during a break in Clayton, N.M. that he is gratified that the 3,215-mile trip has drawn attention from people who have made donations via his website, www.donsheppardbikesacrossamerica2012.com . “It's just got a huge following in La Cañada, certainly, and all over the country and in Canada.

The bicycles were buzzing, the spokes were flicking, the fans on the corner of Green Lane and Angeles Crest Highway hung out behind the barricades, some for up to two hours for this one moment, waiting to clatter their cowbells and cheer for the cyclists whom they’d interact with for only a few seconds. It went like that, a lot of waiting, watching California Highway Patrol and other cars go by and premature cheering for cyclists who weren’t in the race (mostly fans who wanted to chase the course)

Just in time for the clouds to part, the swarm of cyclists from the Amgen Tour of California are making their way through the Golden State and plan on stopping by La Cañada through Angeles Crest this weekend. On Saturday, the Tour of California, America’s premier cycling event, will be in its seventh stage, crossing from Santa Clarita to Pasadena and will stop through La Cañada on its way, coursing through Angeles Crest and Commonwealth Avenue. This may sound familiar to some locals as the Tour went through La Cañada last year.

It’s time to delve into the depths of your garage and dust off the two-wheeler. The city of La Cañada Flintridge has completed design plans for a 3.4-mile bike route and will begin striping work in July, city traffic engineer Erik Zandvliet said. The bike lanes will run along parts of Verdugo Boulevard, Descanso Drive and Berkshire Avenue, and then will connect with La Cañada’s only bike lane on Oak Grove Drive. Named the Red Route, it will also connect with Pasadena’s westernmost bike lane.
