Paul Neuerburg – Full Century

Distance: 100 miles and 2200 feet of elevation gain (barometric)

We start by heading south from Arcadia down to Whittier. There is a little bit of climbing here (the peak at mile 13 on the profile) but note that you never get above 500 feet above sea level. The route then turns east through Brea to Yorba Linda. The route then picks up the Santa Ana River Trail which it takes all the way to Huntington Beach where we stop for lunch. After lunch, we head to the coast and north along PCH to Seal Beach and the San Gabriel River Trail. We take this and the Rio Hondo trail north back to the start. As you can see by the profile, except for the climb in Whittier, there are no significant hills, although the last 30 miles of the route is a gentle up-grade as you ride up river.
