2021 Bike Month Metro BEST Self-Guided Ride: Pacific Electric Trail en

Our self-guided ride this month starts in Claremont and takes you to the beginning of the Pacific Electric Path . The end of the path is 21 miles away from the starting point, so if you plan to make it to the path’s end at Cactus Ave in Rialto, plan for a 42 mile ride. 

We include turnaround points along the route for a 12 mile ride. This route is relatively flat, with very little shade. Aside from our start in Claremont, the route sticks to the bike path.

For this ride, we take a look at some local history while spending most of our time looking at the present. We focus on bicycle policy taking shape today at the federal, state and local levels. 

This ride is on Tongva/Kizh/Gabrielino land. This route takes a mostly east-west direction. As you ride, you’ll have a view of the San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountains to the north. Taking up the landscape in this part of town is Mount Baldy, also known as Mount San Antonio also known as Joat. Claremont, our starting location, was named Torojoatngna, “the place below Joat” by the Tongva/Kizh and Serrano peoples.  People have lived in this area for thousands of years, since around 1500 BCE.

Wherever you choose to turn around, once you arrive back at your starting point, we recommend Heroes Bar & Grill as a spot to grab a well-deserved meal (and maybe a beer).
