Tejon Ranch is located at the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley. At nearly 270,000 acres, Tejon Ranch is the largest private land in California. Its 422 sq. miles make it about as large as Los Angeles. The ride will begin inside the ranch amongst the majestic mountains surrounding the Grapevine. Cyclists will be privileged to ride the virgin roads of the ranch, where few cyclists have ever been. At 3,500 feet, the temperature should be about 20 degrees cooler than the valley floor.
