I cant believe Im the first to review this spectacular SoCal road! This road is one of the main reasons why motorcyclist love SoCal!
Angeles Crest (Hwy 2) begins just north of the 210. Most riders gas up at the nearby station and get ready for an E ticket ride.
On weekends cops and squids are all over the place. The best times to run this are on the weekdays.
During winter it can get quite chilly even when its warm in the city. Bring an extra layer and some warm gloves.
Also during winter, they dump volcanic rock on the roads to keep the snow and ice in check. The edges can retain the gravel for a long time.
Otherwise, during the week, there are still cops, but dont make a complete arse or show of yourself and theyll leave you alone.
Be sure to also stop by Newcombs Ranch for an awesome meal.
This is not a road for beginners. Even experienced riders crash here. Take it easy the first time.
There are lots of fun off shoots too! Just a few are Angeles Forest and Big & Little Tujunga.
Plan most of one day for this one.
