Poking Around PV – Full Century

Distance: 93 miles and 4100 feet of elevation gain (barometric)

We start with a trip down to San Pedro which uses a somewhat inland route. The route zigzags its way south through the beach communities. On the way down, there are several short, but steep little climbs to keep your interest. Once down in San Pedro, we make a climb up for a nice view of the harbor (the peak at mile 42 on the profile) before starting our return trip back through Palos Verdes. There is a bit of looping around on the coastal side of Palos Verdes and a stop for lunch. After lunch, we make the only major climb of the day as we go up almost to the top of the peninsula (the largest peak in the profile below). This isn’t quite as steep as some of the earlier short hills, but is somewhat longer. Once over the top, it is back down to the coast and a return back through the beach communities back to the start. There are a lot of turns on this route, so be prepared to follow your route sheet carefully,
