SATURDAY RIDES

Access route sheets and the club calendar by going here.

Helmets are required on all Club Rides.

Front and rear lights are recommended.


L1 - PEPPERDINE-BIG ROCK

REMOTE START!

Our only remote ride of the month.  A number of Malibu's canyon roads are still closed due to the Woolsey Fire. And, many of the rest stops that were popular with cyclists are no more.

But, Highway 1 is open. So we'll drive up to Malibu Bluffs Park (at Pepperdine), and take an out-n-back ride on PCH to the Big Rock. 52 miles, 2600 feet, so it's not a difficult ride.  Roll out at 8, back by noon. Lunch to follow for those who have the time.  If you've been hesitant about joining the L1 riders on Saturday, this ride is a good one to join.  Newsletter Editor Matt Peck leads.

L2 - BOGART'S

Follow Diana Thacker on this route 'round the backside of PV, and down to Seal Beach's Bogart's Coffee. Then home. 64 miles, 1900 feet.

L3-TWO GOLF COURSES

Found hidden among our more popular L3 rides. Two Golf Courses, one being Riviera, and the other Brentwood. Get the idea?  43 miles, 1100 feet, led by Don Adkins.

L4-BROKEN SPOKE

Ride the bike path up to Marina del Rey, take a lap and come home. 30 miles, flat, led by Mindy Bowman.


In the interest of safety, whenever it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, or otherwise unsafe riding conditions, it is club policy to cancel a club ride.  Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
