On Saturday, May 20, the riders finish the ride in Pasadena. But that’s only after a last day, which begins Mountain High in Wrightwood with peak elevation of 8,200 feet.

The final stage is a descent into La Cañada Flintridge, then into Pasadena where the winner will be crowned on Green Street in front of the Convention Center.
