Is a GPX file or the like available with the route?
I won't be able to join the group ride up, but would like to do the route if possible.

Not sure how the guys get to Granite Road so look on the map paper or software for Granite Road out of OilDale near Bakersfield. Follow the squiggly line to Oakhurst. Your mileage may vary.

Sure Bill. We can meet at the Gas Station off Twin Oaks and the 78.
Let me know the meet time.
Are you planning the Big Bear / Angeles Crest route? Hopefully no fog this year. That was pretty dicy last year. Nice hot bowl of chili again on top of the Crest would be great too. I recall we barely made it there before they closed up.

BTW, send me your lodging info in Lancaster.

Oh, one more thing.... PM me the Tehachapi to Oakhurst GPS (GPX) route if you have the time. Or maybe I could stop by before the trip and you can educate me on adding routes to my Garmin Zümo 350.

You'll want to rethink Angeles Crest.
From CalDOT:

SR 2
[IN THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AREA]
IS CLOSED FROM ISLIP SADDLE TO 5 MI WEST OF BIG PINES (LOS ANGELES CO)
- DUE TO A ROCK & MUD SLIDE - MOTORISTS ARE ADVISED TO USE AN ALTERNATE ROUTE

ALL TRACTOR-SEMI TRAILER COMBINATIONS WITH 3 AXLES OR GREATER ARE
PROHIBITED FROM THE JCT OF I 210 /IN LA CANADA-FLINTRIDGE/ TO THE
ANGELES FOREST HIGHWAY (LOS ANGELES CO) - ALTERNATE ROUTES ARE AVAILABL

Of course this could change in the next couple of weeks...

At this time Big Pines Hwy is open and will get you through from Wrightwood.
See you guys in Tehachapi!

Wrightwood to Newcomb's is closed at the gate until May or ? You'll need to ride down to the desert from Wrightwood.

Forecast shows ❄️⛄️in Yosemite Fri/Sat, rain in the southland on both days. GERBINGS & a rain suit looks in order. Have fun😉
