    • Manhattan Beach Pier

    You meet on the Manhattan Beach Pier just adjacent to the bike path for the Thursday Ride.
    Head north on the bike path into Marina del Rey and up Ballona Creek. After a brief regroup at the bridge, this first segment ends at Centinela (some riders will sprint somewhere on the path to Centinela). Riders turn around and stop at the nearby wooden trellis deck for a brief respite/regroup.

    On the next segment riders head back over the bridge and up Pershing to Westchester Parkway. Some riders will log extra mileage by riding a lap around Westchester Parkway, looping back just before the Manchester intersection. Others will simply continue back toward Hermosa Beach.

    This route is ~25 miles out-n-back. Expect a Level 2 or a slightly faster Level 3 pace, multiple regroups and always no-drop.
     

    The ride typically ends with refreshments at Bonaparte's Cafe at the Hermosa Pier.

    Today's route is: Baldwin Hills Overlook via Playa Vista Bluffs - 38 miles, 1600 feet of elevation.

    The Tuesday ride has a variable route by design. If you want novelty, this is your ride. Routes vary between ~35-55 miles, 1000-3000 feet of climbing, typically in the middle third of that range (41-49). Expect a Level 2, or faster L3 pace, no drop. If we go to an eating place, expect a "digestion pace" on the return.

    Often there is a destination (a vista point, climb, point of interest, etc). We try to go to the places that are interesting but would be crowded on a weekend (eg, Hollywood Sign, Inspiration Point, Porto's, etc). We are usually done by 1pm, and an after ride coffee or meal stop is customary.

    Ride start is 9am, at the plaza just south of Captain Kidd's

    • Manhattan Beach Pier

    You meet on the Manhattan Beach Pier just adjacent to the bike path for the Thursday Ride.
    Head north on the bike path into Marina del Rey and up Ballona Creek. After a brief regroup at the bridge, this first segment ends at Centinela (some riders will sprint somewhere on the path to Centinela). Riders turn around and stop at the nearby wooden trellis deck for a brief respite/regroup.

    On the next segment riders head back over the bridge and up Pershing to Westchester Parkway. Some riders will log extra mileage by riding a lap around Westchester Parkway, looping back just before the Manchester intersection. Others will simply continue back toward Hermosa Beach.

    This route is ~25 miles out-n-back. Expect a Level 2 or a slightly faster Level 3 pace, multiple regroups and always no-drop.
     

    The ride typically ends with refreshments at Bonaparte's Cafe at the Hermosa Pier.
