Coastal Cruise Century (Alt) – Metric Century

Distance: 64 miles and 1800 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

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.  Here the metric route splits from the full Century. This metric heads inland on the LA River over to Willow where it rejoins the return by the full century.  The return is the same as the full century 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.
