Coastal Cruise Century (Alt) – Full Century

Distance: 93 miles and 2400 feet of elevation gain (barometric)

We start with a trip south to Palos Verdes, mostly on the beach bike path. In Palos Verdes we make a loop around the western side of the peninsula. Then it’s down to San Pedro where we take an interesting (if not scenic) route through the harbor area to the LA River. We pick up the LA River trail down to the beach and take the Long Beach bike trail along the coast to Seal Beach. Our two opportunities for lunch pop up in the Seal Beach and Huntington Beach areas. Then we start back, taking a more inland route. On the profile below, you can see that most of the climbing is in the early trip through Palos Verdes. However, you never get above 400 feet above sea level, so it is not a mountainous day.
