This is a 150k ride that begins in Azusa.  It finishes at the Congregation Ale House in Azusa for some post-ride food and beverage.  This year it will also be a celebration ride for all the volunteers who have helped PCH Randonneurs put on over 30 brevets and populaires this year.  All volunteers will receive a gift from the club at the post-ride celebration.

The route does a loop around pretty neighborhoods in the west San Gabriel Valley, then does an out-and-back to Long Beach on the San Gabriel River Trail.  There are many nice places to grab coffee or a snack in Long Beach or Seal Beach.  The course is fairly gentle, with only 2000 ft of climbing.  

This populaire is the third ride of our Summer Rouleur Series.  To earn the Rouleur Award you need to do populaires with lengths of 100k, 125k, and 150k; plus a 200k brevet and a Dart populaire (we'll have a Dart in November).  If you do all these rides in the same year PCH Randonneurs will present you with this spiffy patch from RUSA:
