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.

We have only ridden this route once – back on March 1st, 2020, At that time it was the pre-ride for the club’s Installation Lunch and supposedly the kick-off for the club’s year-long 75th anniversary celebration. In fact, this route was intended as the short route for what would later in the year be a short, medium and long (quarter century, half century and full century) anniversary ride. But, a few days after that lunch ride, the world slammed to a halt because of Covid and we never held the anniversary ride or any installation lunch until this year. Actually, it’s not an installation lunch this year either. Our bylaws require officers be installed in March and we couldn’t get this venue then. So, the officers have been installed, but we still have a lot of awards to give out such as the Jack Flynn award and the century challenge awards. So, today’s lunch has been rebranded as an “Awards Lunch.” As in the past, we will offer a short ride for those who wish to ride prior to the lunch and the route we used back in 2020 seems right. It is a short 27 mile ride starting and ending at the lunch location. Since we don’t often ride downtown and Sunday is the best day to do this, we thought we would tour this portion of the city for which the club is named.  From Culver City we will head downtown and ride through the USC campus (another place we almost never ride). We continue to downtown past the Crypto.com Arena (Staples back in 2020) and the new buildings which have sprung up around it. On the way back we will tour some other historic neighborhoods in LA. The ride will not be hilly except for an optional climb (very steep) to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook which gives an excellent view of the city (the  27 miles and the 1200 feet of gain listed above include this optional climb). Even if you do not ride, we hope you will come to the lunch. It will start at noon with awards being given out after lunch but before we cut the cake. David Nakai will be acting as our MC for the program and that is always entertaining. 

Sunday, April 9th – 8:30 a.m.

Start Location: THE CORNER, Olympic Blvd, 1 block west of La Cienega in Beverly Hills.  From the Santa Monica Frwy (10), off & north La Cienega 1 miles, L - Olympic 1 block to R- Le Doux.

This is our traditional Easter ride, but I note that we are also in the midst of Passover week and Ramadan. That should cover most of our members. Buddhists and Hindus do have spring holidays but I don’t believe any of them occur this week. For Atheists, I suppose you could say every day is a holiday from religion. In any case, no one should feel left out on this ride because there is really nothing religious about the routes at all. We do pass by the “Witch’s House” in Beverly Hills, which may please any Wiccans among us, but we don’t stop to cast any spells or anything. So, why not just come out today and enjoy a nice spring ride. I’m writing this in March where it has been raining every week, but hopefully we will be out of the rainy season by this time and we can begin to look forward to summer. All routes are short today. They all head down to the Marina for brunch where we can dine al fresco and soak in the rays. The long and medium do a few small hills in Beverly Hills first (nothing real bad) before heading south to the Marina. The short skips the hills. The long takes an extra loop on the return for a couple of more hills and some extra miles. These extra miles take you past some very nice homes in the Holmby Hills area (including the former Playboy mansion), although many of them are behind walls.
