You thought traffic on Angeles Crest Hwy was bad already, just wait until they reopen the top section that has been closed which will again connect it to Wrightwood!!

Ceremony is at 9:30 and it reopens at noon on May 20th

http://www.wrightwoodcalif.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=1f8b5528e4835a0b70d&topic=13858.msg212886#new

I'll be watching for Hypers wheelieing in the background during the ceremony!!

Cheers
I'm 99% sure we will be closed that week:( so I plan on being there and riding all the way to Wrightwood. Last time was 2003,4,5?? It's been so long I can't even remember. FYI, I've been told that they repaved much of the road:)

EDIT: Todd, It's soooo deserted up there. Once you get past the tunnels you'll hardly ever see another vehicle. One morning (years ago) I came across a guy who had crashed. It was almost two hours before help arrived.

EDIT:EDIT: I'm in town Memorial Day weekend if anyone wants to do a early Sunday ride all the way to Wrightwood. It be pretty awesome if we could get a huge Ducati/PI ride going.

I like where the directions say from LA take Hwy 2 to Vincent Gap? Then the flyer says the ceremony is at 9:30 am but the road opens at noon. typical CalTrans but I think I might attend. It's only about 20 minutes for me.

I'm probably down for a Saturday or Sunday morning ride up ACH.

Gonzalez and a buddy were out in force this past weekend. I heard they were staking out the roads just past Newcombs, but we passed them down near the bottom.

Anyways, someone should send out details and I'll try to make it!!

You're not kidding! They were everywhere.

There were some CHP on the 605 north and southbound on-ramps (at the top) looking for speeders to and from the 210 freeway.

Additionally, there was a couple of CHP near the ACH exit on the 210 West.

And then again on ACH. Phew!

I don't think Wednesday is going to happen. I need to wait for some trucks to pick up orders that we are shipping.

SUNDAY IS ON THOUGH!

Lets just make a plan right now. Meet at Shell station at 8:00 - 8:15, be fueled and in your gear for a 8:30 AM departure.

Thats the plan, who's in? Man, it's gonna be awesome to ride that road again:D
