    • Start - Captain Kidd's, Redondo Beach

    Start at the parking lot opposite Captain Kidd's Market, head north to Santa Monica, using Vista del Mar to the Marina, and stopping at the the Ocean Avenue bathrooms, from here, riders have choices.
    Some riders simply return back to CCC, for a roughly 35 mile out-n-back ride. Expect a Level 2 maybe a Level 3 pace
    Others, depending on the whims of the group, will take in climbs such as Mandeville, Amalfi, or Temescal.
    Possibly they could go on PCH to Cross Creek and back, or just do a lap around Brentwood Country Club.
    So, for these riders, mileage will be closer to 50 miles. The pace will be dictated by the riders, most likely Level 1 or Level 2.

    • 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.

The group has discovered several charming cafes, and plenty more are yet to be discovered, so the route varies, round trip is usually about 35 miles.
