Distance: 62 miles and 2700 feet of elevation gain (barometric)
Both the long and medium head over to the valley and return. The beginning and end of each route is pretty much the same, but the middle portion differs. Both start by heading up to Mulholland on Benedict Canyon. At the top, this long splits off and descends into the Valley on Beverly Glen. It then makes a clockwise circle around the west Valley going as far west as Chatsworth and as far north as Porter Ranch. After completing this circle, it heads back over Sepulveda (with the medium route) and back to the start. As you can see on the profile, the two peaks are the trips over and back. The rise in the center of the route is the ride along Rinaldi in the north Valley.
