    Free Motorcycle Technical Skills Workshop - Angeles National Forest, Los Angeles County, California

    Sunday, May 26, 2019 at Noon

    Chilao School, in Chilao Campground, mile marker 49.69 on Angeles Crest Highway, Angeles National Forest

    Interactive discussion with Tanner Alan Giao, who followed his passion for riding motorcycles to racing them, about the skill sets every rider needs on the streets and canyons, and when it's time to take it to the track.

    All riders of all skill levels are welcome. We are particularly enthusiastic about meeting new riders. A suspension workshop with West Coast GP Moto may follow Tanner's presentation; please follow the Facebook event for announcements, road conditions and directions.

    Lunch will be served. Lunch and the workshop are free. Donations are appreciated but never demanded.

    additional information...

    Tanner learned to ride on the Crest, and his talent and passion did not go unnoticed. It seemed like in a blink of an eye he was racing - and winning - races. But it's never that easy in real life unless you were born into a racing family, and Tanner wasn't.

    Join us at noon on Sunday, May 26, after Moto Yoga, for an illustrated conversation with Tanner about riding - mountains, canyons, highways, off road, and on the track; and some fun and informational riding videos by Tanner.

    Everyone is welcome; all riding skill levels and all motorcycle persuasions are welcome. This event is free. Donations are very much appreciated. Brunch will be served around 11:30 AM.

    If you would like to join us for yoga, show up by 10 AM. The Moto Yoga workshop is also donation-based; it is basic yoga for every body with an emphasis on strength, flexibility and recovery for those who are and want to remain active.

    Additional motorcycle/healing arts activities may be added; stay tuned for updates.


    To reach Chilao School without the detour and with the detour:

    Without: We are located in the heart of the Angeles National Forest. From Angeles Crest Highway (Highway 2 north) at mile marker 49.69, turn left into Chilao Campground and follow signs to Chilao School. We are located within the US Forest Service Chilao Campground across the road from the USFS Chilao Fire Station. Do not try to use GPS or Google to locate the school. If you are not familiar with the area, look at a map so you can orient yourself to the distance. We are 27 miles above La Canada Flintridge and less than 2 miles from Newcomb's Ranch Bar and Restaurant, within the campground area.

    With: All of the above is the same except you will make a left on Angeles Forest Highway (there will be a ranger station on your left and an information kiosk and restrooms on your right. You can only turn left. Turn left). Stay on this road for about ten miles. You will go over a bridge, through a tunnel, through a small residential area and come out in mile 16 to a straight-away with another ranger station on your left. Just after the ranger station turn Right on Upper Big Tujunga Canyon. Go nine miles to the top. Turn Left on Angeles Crest Highway. You are back on track. Chilao Campground will come up in about six and a half miles. Print out or by some other means save these directions. You will not have cell service in the forest.

    If you have questions please feel free to contact Chilao School via email at, by phone at 626.440.7344 or look at Tanner on Instagram.
