Bicycle Tour of Santa Clarita - LA's High Country
Meet at 8:00 at the courtyard to get a bike; or, 8:15 with a bike inside Union Station for 8:29 train departure
The City of Santa Clarita is located 40 miles north of downtown Los Angeles in a valley formed by three mountain ranges: the San Gabriel to the south, the Santa Susana to the west and the Sierra Palona to the north. With a population of 216,000, it is the third largest city in Los Angeles County.
Santa Clarita maintains a network of 40 miles of Class I bike paths across its 64 square miles. In addition to the steep topography surrounding the city, its form is influenced by arterial roads curving between neighborhoods, and the Santa Clara River. Much of the city’s trail system runs along the river and its tributaries, with under-crossings of roadways to create a unique, uninterrupted trail experience.
City staff will lead the tour and answer questions regarding how the network came about during the city’s 32 years of existence. They will provide a glimpse of how active transportation can be included in the connected city of the future.
We'll take the train from Union Station to the Santa Clarita Station. Don't be late. You'll need time to buy tickets and walk to the platform in time for train's departure at 8:29 sharp!
This tour is limited to the first 20 riders who register via Eventbrite.
