Hills of the South Bay (Long)

Distance: 52 miles and 4200 feet of elevation gain (barometric)

All the routes are much the same today except the shorter ones cut off early and head back to the start. All are together for the first 18 miles when the short cuts off. This long and the medium continue together to the 31.5 miles mark when the medium cuts off. There is no easy description of the route except to say it winds around a lot for all the hills. If you run your cursor along the profile below, you can follow the route on the map above it. There are a lot of turns. In fact, I couldn’t fit the long route on one sheet. Lunch is fairly late in the route, but there are numerous places to stop all along the way. On the profile below, the highest hills in the center of the route are on the slopes of Palos Verdes, but they are not too steep. Just take it one hill at a time and you can do this ride.
