I have work that day, so 2pm definitely wont work. I can probably get off by 3pm and get to the ride by 4pm, but I'm sure many more won't be so lucky.
Also, I'm a fan of using public transportation minimally. On the last Robots ride, we charmed a bunch of people on the train, but we also pissed a few of them off, and some guy even seemed like he wanted a reason to start a fight. Probably all the more likely on New Years.
So if you want to get to Pasadena, why not just ride all the way to Union Station? It's only a little further, but we'll only have to jump on one train, instead of two. (Personally, I'd rather ride the whole route, but that might not be practical.)
As for the the return route, you're totally safe doing Pasadena to Highland Park to Eagle Rock to Atwater. That's an awesome roll with bike-friendly streets and all neighborhoods are chill with bikes. I'd avoid Glendale at all costs.
It really is amazing how dangerously people drive as soon as you cross the city line.
All things considered, perhaps the best idea would be to post stops for latecomers/eastsiders who want to join later on?
