    The event is on Friday, October 25, starting at 8:00am and ending at 2:00pm.

    Two volunteer sessions are available. If you don't have time for a full day, there is a morning session for you to choose:

    Full session - 8:00am to 2:00pm. 

    Morning session - 8:00am to 12:00noon.

    • Start - Manhattan Beach Pier

    You meet on the Manhattan Beach Pier just adjacent to the bike path for the 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.
