About this trip

THAT’S SO NOT-L.A.
SO-CAL GRAVEL RAID

RAID expeditionary force invites you to join them on a remarkable adventure to some of the best-kept secret gravel riding to be found anywhere! We'll venture into the remote San Gabriel Mountains behind L.A. for 2-days of steep & deep canyon riding before we hop over to the desert island of Catalina, 22-miles off the coast of Long Beach, for 2-more days of truly epic gravel routes. 


You won’t experience any of the aggressive drivers L.A. is known for.  Join us on our annual SO-CAL gravel ride. The weather is beyond dreamy, the food edgy and the riding is dazzling! 


This gravel grinder is designed for the intermediate and advanced gravel rider. Daily distances & elevation will average 30-55 mi & 2,500-5,000 vertical feet of climbing with optional longer routes available. Expect 90% of our routes to be on mixed terrain, gravel roads, some trail & pavement.

What a great adventure! This trip exceeded expectations with spectacular scenery, roads less traveled, quirky hotels and great food. Brad would appear in his van as if by magic whenever the hunger pangs threatened and as a local knew exactly where to stop to ensure we got the full adventure tourist experience.

The trip was great, Brad is an amazing person, 100% committed for the well being of the riders (food, hotel, bike, nature, road advices...) When your are on your bike you just have to think of your ride, your pace, your leg... because your know that raid-cycling is100% handling everything else. It was the 2nd ride with Brad, I will do Japan next year
