Ride around the Bear • Description
The Ride around the Bear is a mountain-rural century with plenty of climbing.
The course starts in Redlands, enters San Bernardino National Forest, and climbs via Big Bear Lake to Onyx Summit (8,443 feet). Then it descends on the other side via Angelus Oaks back into Redlands. The descent is the same as on the Breathless Agony.

At the lunch stop I met Barbara B., who rides with the Renegades and is also an officer of the Orange County Wheelmen.
