As a 20 year resident of Pasadena, I thought it would be fortuitous to start my rides at the Rose Bowl. Together with my husband Bill, we decided to give ourselves a mini-challenge. Once around the Rose Bowl equals 3.2 miles. Why not 3 times around and make it into exercise? This is a wonderful park. I would advise off hours as there is less traffic so 10:00am to 2:00pm or an early weekend morning. Birds chirping squirrels scurrying, dog walkers walking and the sun shinning. AweSome!!
