    strawberry peak curiousity

    I've only ridden Strawberry Peak once. We started/ended at Switzer's.

    Has anyone ever started at Red Box?

    If so, did you prefer it over starting at Switzer's?

    I have a friend who isn't a very strong climber. So I was thinking of breaking up the final descent.

    Was that the day

    I rode it with you? You can shuttle from Red Box or you can just park in the lot above Switzers where the intersection of Angeles Crest and Angeles Hwy intersect. Kind of a nervy ride for a beginner though, going down the gab, isn't it?

    If you're wondering how it is to ride back on the other side of the hwy towards Strawberry Peak, I did this once and didn't care for it, Going down a fireroad vs going down singletrack is blasphemy I believe, isn't it?

    Anyways as far as I'm concerned all those rides are a blast.
    I may not be as good as I once was.
    But I'm as good once, as I ever was.

    Hey PF, yeah we did ride it together. We met you and your group at the top of the fireroad. Then we all rode to Red Box together.

    My friend isn't a total beginner. I was just thinking to break up the ride, by starting with the Red Box/Switzer portion then do a little climbing, a little descending, the s/t climb out of the Protrero and then a final descent back to Red Box.

    I don't know, just a thought.

    thanks,
    tep
