Make sure you bring water and snacks for the longer rides.

The BCCClub rides year-round and seldom has to cancel due to bad

weather.  Here is a good way to determine if the ride is “on or off ”:

If it’s raining, or if the streets have puddles from the night before,

the ride is off. It’s always a good idea to check the weather 

forecast before a ride; be prepared and dress appropriately!

Larry Matson Thursday Ride

  • 17 Aug 2017
  • 9:00 AM
  • Start - Manhattan Beach Pier

You meet on the Manhattan Beach Pier just adjacent to the bike path for the Larry Matson Thursday Ride.

Head north on the bike path into Marina del Rey and up Ballona Creek. After a brief regroup at the bridge, this first segment ends at Centinela (some riders will sprint somewhere on the path to Centinela). Riders turn around and stop at the nearby wooden trellis deck for a brief respite/regroup. On the next segment riders head back over the bridge and up Pershing to Westchester Parkway. Some riders will log extra mileage by riding a fast lap around Westchester Parkway, looping back just before the Manchester intersection. Others will simply continue back toward Hermosa Beach.

This route is ~30 miles out-n-back. Expect a Level 2 or a Level 3 pace, with Level 1 sprints (24-30mph) by some, multiple regroups and always no-drop.
 The ride typically ends with coffee/cake/ commiseration at Bonaparte's Cafe at the Hermosa Pier, or Roman Aroma on Catalina Ave.

Here is video of a typical ride, produced in May 2017.
