Access route sheets and the club calendar by going here.
L1 - LET'S GO TO LATIGO
Some more climbing, in preparation for our November 11th ride up to Cloudburst. 84 miles, 4300 feet led by Ironman O'Crowley. We'll be riding on PCH - so charge up those lights.
L2 - TRANCAS
An out-n-back, sort of, ride up to Trancas Canyon. Stop at the market for refreshments, and then return home. Feel like trying Latigo, but not so sure? Roll out with the L1 crowd.....you have all the way to Latigo Canyon to decide. Then either turn right up the canyon, or continue to Trancas and wait for the L2 Crew to roll in. 75 miles, 2400 feet, led by Diana Thacker. Rear blinky lights highly recommended.
Stay close to home, and still get in a decent ride. Up and down Amalfi, then up Temescal. Return through Pacific Palisades and the scenic overlook. 50 miles 1200 ft led by Danny Hylands.
L4 - JACKSON CAFE
Zip up the bike path to Culver City and the Jackson Cafe. Rest up, return home.
32 miles, flat, led by Fred Fasen.
In the interest of safety, whenever it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, 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.
