GPX Tour of the canyons

Angeles Crest Highway

About this event

GRAND PRIX REGION'S TOUR OF THE CANYONS  HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FEB. 20

As Angeles Crest Highway may have snow, this tour goes up the canyons at a lower altitude but still lots of fun

Big Tujunga Canyon Road to Angeles Forest Road, across the outskirts of Palmdale then down Lake Hughes Road to Castaic 

The "Twisties"

We will start at the Starbucks at 8241 Foothill Blvd. Sunland/Tujunga, CA 90140

We will meet at 8:00 AM and depart promptly at 9:00 AM. This event will be run under the PCA Guidelines. This way people and cars can more easily maintain physical distancing and face coverings at Check-In.

Starting up Big Tujunga Canyon Road  there will likely be bicyclists and other possible obstructions.  We will observe all speed limits, as they allow ample opportunity for spirited driving. 

There will be a "Pit Stop" in Palmdale before the back roads of the Leona Valley

The Tour will end in Castaic at the I-5.

Due to the anticipated size of the event,  participants may be divided into groups with staggered starts.

Participants will be assigned to a group with specified check in and departure times. Even if you are not a lead or sweep car, all members should be familiar with the PCA Tour Guidelines https://www.pca.org/resource/event-guidelines-tour 

For safety reasons, PCA encourages monitoring GMRS Radios set to Channel 7, Sub-channel 20 to alert all participants to road conditions. If you have one, please bring it.

Reference Communicable Diseases: Please follow the  PCA and GPX event guidelines. In need of volunteers to staff the Check-in for Event Waivers, etc. Answer the volunteer sign up question in the Registration section.

Also write down the Mobile numbers of the Lead and Sweep cars that will be given at the Participants'  Meeting before the start of the tour.

A donation can be made online with part of the proceeds being given to the Children's Dental Health Clinic.

This is a “Rain or Shine” event.
