NOTE: 8 a.m start time. This is our August Century of the month. We ran this same century last August. It just makes sense to run a century that sticks close to the coast in our hottest month of the year. The “Cool Breeze Century” up in Ventura is also being held this weekend (yesterday actually) and they have the same idea – stay near the coast in August. Of course you have to pay for that one, while you can ride our century for free. You have to buy your own lunch on our ride, but I think that’s still a lot less than the fee they will charge at the “Cool Breeze.” So why not join us on our century? It’s a relatively easy century as centuries go. The route heads down to Seal Beach and back. On the way down we do a little climbing in Palos Verdes (almost half the climbing of the entire ride). We take an interesting route through the harbor area which is nicer than you might think. The Long Beach Bike Path gets us to Seal Beach. The route back is a bit more inland and includes a trip up to the top of Signal Hill in case you missed it on July 4th. We also offer a metric century. The metric stays with the full century down to the edge of Long Beach and then jogs over on the LA River to pick up the full century route again for the return. It includes the climbing through Palos Verdes which the full century does, but cuts off the trip up Signal Hill on the return. The “Cool Breeze” is on Saturday, so actually, you could ride both centuries. My hat is off to anyone who does.
