Janus Sequential Metric Century (Saturday – Counter-Clockwise Route)

Distance: 64 miles and 2300 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

The metric century starts with the full century in Thousand Oaks and stays with the century for the first 7 miles.  We first go up and over Erbes Rd and down Norwegian Grade.  This is a relatively easy climb. The metric then splits off to head to the coast on Santa Rosa, Pleasant Valley and 5th Street. On the coast it rejoins the full century route as it heads into Port Hueneme. After a stop for lunch, the route heads for it’s only major climb of the day. This is Potrero, which most riders know to be a very difficult climb. Only about 1 mile of the climb is extremely steep but the entire climbing portion of Potrero is about 7 miles long with a short downhill in the middle. Once over the final top of Potrero, it’s an easy ride through Hidden Valley and back to the start. As you can see by the profile, there is only one major climb, but it comes at about the 47 mile mark.
