NOTE: Based on the Los Angeles County Protocol for Youth and Adult Recreational Sports, we have now determined that the club may resume the regular scheduling of club rides.  Recent CDC pronouncements indicate that cycling is safe without a mask for VACCINATED people. Most club members have already been vaccinated. We urge all potential riders to become vaccinated before riding with us.

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.

If this ride sounds familiar, that’s because it was scheduled just last August. But that was the weekend of the infamous “Hurriquake” and no one rode that day. So, I have rescheduled it again for today. As I noted last August, these routes are converted from one of our former Grand Tour training rides. The long is the complete training ride, the medium is a shortened version we added to the trainers last year, and the short is a new ride we added to complete the set. Starting in West LA, all routes ride down to Palos Verdes and return by the same route. The differences are all on the peninsula. The long, as a former Grand Tour trainer, is a fairly difficult ride. Once in Palos Verdes, it circles the peninsula making no less than 3 trips to the top. The last is up the rather steep Hawthorne Blvd. At the top of the last climb it stops at what I like to call the “Steve Bowen Memorial Habit Burger.” It’s a Habit built on the site of Steve’s former bike shop. In fact, Steve originally put this route together so he could provide lunch at his bike shop. After lunch, the route returns to the start and along the way uses a portion of the bike path along the Expo Line, which I do not believe any of our other routes use. The medium follows the long up the first climb to the top of the peninsula, but then cuts straight over to the Habit for lunch, skipping the trip around the peninsula and two of the climbs. The return is the same as the long. The short gets to the peninsula but stops for lunch at Malaga Cove without doing any climbing in Palos Verdes. It also returns with the long and medium routes. All in all, three good choices for a day of riding on the coast.


Sunday, October 8th – 8:30 a.m.

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).

It’s October so I think we can move back to doing some inland routes. Although these routes start in Pico Rivera, which is pretty far inland, they do head down to the coast and back so we are easing into the non-coastal routes. All the routes are primarily on river bike trails, so the riding is fairly easy too. The long is the only route which does any significant hills, but it does this early while you are still fresh. After some hills in Whittier (where the rich people in Whittier live) and a cruise along West Road, it heads into Orange County to pick up the Santa Ana River trail south to the coast. After lunch in Huntington Beach, it continues north to the San Gabriel River trail and up that river back to the start. The medium travels down to Seal Beach for lunch, going down on the Coyote Creek and San Gabriel River trails and returning back up the San Gabriel. The short never quite makes it to the coast, but travels down and back on the San Gabriel with a loop in Long Beach for lunch. So join us today and ease into fall riding.
