Eclipse Meet Up and Viewing Party!
If you haven’t heard, on Monday, August 21, a total solar eclipse will be sweeping across the United States. Here in LA, we’ll be outside the path of totality by about 926 miles but we’ll still be able to see 70% of the eclipse which is a 100% valid reason for taking the morning off.
Barring any flat tires or coughed up lungs, we’re planning to be up at the Mt. Wilson Observatory to take in the eclipse. If you’re riding up, come find us and the swrve mobile. Muriel will have snacks and beverages!
The eclipse is happening from 9:05-11:44am with maximum eclipse occurring at 10:21am. The Mt. Wilson Observatory will be celebrating the event with a free public telescope viewing.
Please note: This is a meet up at the summit of Mt. Wilson. Due to the burly nature of Angeles Crest Highway, we’re not hosting a group ride. (Besides, you’d get tired of waiting for us.) If you do ride up, remember to wear sunscreen, bring plenty of food and water and your repair kit. You can refill your bottles at Clear Creek, Red Box and at the summit of Mt. Wilson. There has been no word if The Cosmic Cafe will be open for the event so plan your hot dog needs accordingly.
