Riders usually goes South to Palos Verdes on the bike path and then do some riding on the Peninsula. There are optional climbs including the 3 “dips” which give the ride its name. The group usually stops for a break at the Golden Cove shopping area. Occasionally the group will decide to vary the route and explore specific sites elsewhere in the city. A typical day is 40 - 50 miles but often individual riders either cut the day short or add extra miles as desired.  Contact Nancy Domjanovich nancydomx@nullicloud.com for details.

This is our 14th year in a row riding this century designed by Dennis Miller as our December Century of the month. I have ridden this one every year and I hope to again this year, but I may not be ready. I’m not sure why I like this one so much. The route itself is nothing extraordinary – a fairly urban route through the San Gabriel Valley. I think it is because we always run this one in mid-December when the holiday season is really getting into swing. The route passes Christmas tree lots in action; many houses have their decorations up; and holiday music can be heard as you pass many stores. I used to play a game to see how many cars I could count with Christmas trees on their roof and I always looked forward to seeing what the latest thing in home decorations would be. Inflatables have been the big thing the last few years, but there are new ones every year. The century is so named because it roughly parallels Foothill Blvd (sometimes actually riding Foothill) from La Crescenta east through the San Gabriel Valley all the way to Claremont and back. Although the route has a lot of short ups and downs, there are no mountain climbs, and that makes for a fairly easy ride. Most of the roads should be familiar to anyone who has ridden with the club a lot or who rides the San Gabriel Valley often. NOTE: The metric century has a separate start location and start time. In order to give metric century riders the best portion of the full century, they are starting from Victory Park in Pasadena and riding the center portion of the full century route out to Claremont and back. So come on out and enjoy looking at the decorated houses and the miles will just fly by.


Sunday, December 17th - 8:30 am.

Start Location: PICO PARK in PICO RIVERA.  From San Gabriel Frwy (605), off & west on Beverly Blvd to Park on left.  (If coming from the North, the Beverly exit puts you on San Gabriel River Rd which you follow for 1.3 mi. to Beverly).

Eight days until Christmas and people are starting to panic. Gifts to be bought, baking to be done, cards to be sent  and you have to clean the house before relatives arrive. It is no time to be out on the streets on a bike with all those half-crazed drivers rushing from store to store. So today we get off those streets as best we can and ride on nice calm bike trails. The routes are all loops on the San Gabriel and Los Angeles Rivers. Last time we ran these, we moved the start north up the San Gabriel River to Pico Park, but the loops remain the same. The long rides 4 different bike trails. We start with the San Gabriel River trail up to the Santa Fe Dam. Then its the Rio Hondo south to the LA River Trail and the Long Beach Bike Path over to Seal Beach for lunch. Then it’s the San Gabriel Trail again back to the start. The medium is much the same, except it does not go all the way to the Santa Fe Dam. The short is similar to the medium except that it doesn’t go all the way south to Long Beach. It is pleasant riding, with almost no hills. It’s easier to talk to your companions on bike trails. So how can you go wrong? And if you are one of those in a panic with only eight days until Christmas, come on out and ride anyway. It will help calm your nerves.
