    New Years Day- Los Angeles area TRE Motorsports Coffee and Bagels- drive afterwards

    We are sponsoring a coffee and bagels at our shop on New Years Day 7:30 am for the first 150 people. Afterwards there is a drive route suggestion if you wish- we are not sponsoring or administrating this, but offering a fun set of roads to follow.

    Some common sense ideas:
    Those wishing to arrive at the restaurant for lunch , in advance of others should leave at 8:15 am. Those wishing a more sedate drive should leave around 8:30-ish.
    There is a large turn out area on Angeles Forest Highway (east of Mt Emma road) where we can all join together for pics.

    If you come up on a slower car and wish to pass, turn on your headlamps and be patient. The slower car should acknowledge and wave by or pull over at the next SAFEST opportunity.

    Be courteous to everyone as all it takes is one bonehead move to ruin it for everyone

    I will post the suggested route tomorrow here. Please tell your friends- all makes of cars are welcome. Last year had about 120 cars.

    The route goes over osborn /sand canyon to soledad
    soledad to aliso canyon
    aliso to AFH, then Mt Emma to Palmdale
    Palmdale bl/ Elisabeth road to Lake Hughes
    Lake Hughes to hwy 5 south
    magic mountain pkway exist where there are several restaurants on the frontage road for lunch

    So who is in?

    That actually sounds like fun. I got family in town for the holidays . . . but maybe Junior'll join me.

    I will see you in the afternoon, Marco. Thank you very much for the hospitality. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I take it you will be there at your parent's house, even though you are now located in Ducati riding heaven.

    I've never attended this gathering before. I think I might give it shot. I'm assuming if it rains everyone will still attend.... What other tips do people have about this drive?

    Don't think you will be able to keep up with Dave for more than two turns. You will either be flying off the cliff or left in his dust.

    With the ice forming on roads in the palmdale/ lake hughes area, a new route suggestion is posted on pelican. please refer to it , print it out so you have a copy. for sure, the Santa Monica canyon roads (all so cal canyon roads for that matter) will have debris and runoff. But the first route's ice challenge thrown in would not make for a fun time with all the cars and varied driver capabilities. We'll save that route for another time

    See you in the am

    From Pelican:

    Happy Holidays !- 12/31 suggested route change!

    We hope the New Year brings all the best in health and happiness to you and your families. In our efforts to further that thought, below is the suggested directions for the New Years Day drive therapy. Please share this with your friends and encourage them to join us.

    7:30 am meet at TRE Motorsports - Coffee and bagels for the first 150 people (donations to defray expenses gladly accepted )

    8:15-8:30 leave- 405 SOUTH to Sunset Blvd

    Sunset Blvd- EXIT and continue on Sunset towards PCH (NOTE - High residential area with lots of sudden light changes and residents pulling out of driveways)

    PCH RIGHT

    Topanga Canyon Blvd RIGHT

    OLD Topanga Canyon LEFT (Heads up on oncoming traffic !)

    Mulholland Highway LEFT

    Stunt Road LEFT

    Top of hill is a stop sign. Also a parking area if you wish to stop and take pics. Be aware of accordion effect of a alot of cars stopping at once.

    Scheuren Road (the stop sign) HARD right-(Careful its narrow and blind )

    Scheuren to Piuma / Rambla Pacifica

    Piuma RIGHT

    Malibu Canyon Road (signal) RIGHT

    Mulholland Highway LEFT

    Top of hill is a parking area above a section known as the "Snake" picture opportunity

    Kanan/ Dume Road (stop sign) LEFT (HEADS UP on cross traffic!)

    Latigo Canyon LEFT (Heads up oncoming traffic)

    PCH RIGHT

    Encinal Canyon RIGHT

    Continue to Decker Canyon (this is just past where Encinal makes a sharp right in the narrow section)

    Decker Canyon LEFT

    PCH RIGHT

    Yerba Buena (Neptunes Net- pch is closed north of here) RIGHT

    Yerba Buena changes names to Little Sycamore

    Continue to Malibu Canyon RIGHT

    PCH LEFT

    Continue to DUKE'S restaurant, located at junction of PCH and Las Flores. You can park your self, but must pay the parking fee.


    This is just a suggested route to drive legally and enjoy the company of your friends.
    If you wish to pass a friend, turn on your headlamps and left turn signal. When a safe opportunity arises, please wave the passer by
    Those wishing to arrive first at the restaurant should leave the coffee and bagels area before the others
    You are sharing the road with lots of other people and be courteous (even if they may not be)

    TRE Motorsports, Inc, Pelican Parts, Inc is only helping people know about this suggested driving roads list and not organizing or promoting it any way
