    You meet at the Manhattan Beach Pier, near the bathrooms 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 regroup at the nearby wooden trellis deck for rest and some social time together.

    On the next segment riders head back to the bridge, regroup, then go up Pershing to Westchester Parkway for a lap around Westchester Parkway, looping back just before the Manchester intersection. We return to Pershing and regroup once again.

    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 post ride refreshments at Bonaparte's Cafe on Pier Ave at the Hermosa Pier or similar cafe.

    Iconic destination!

    39.9 mi, 2789 ft, Pearl Harbor day ride - Ride Leader : Mario

    Battery Osgood-Farley and the Korean Bell


    Battery Osgood-Farley is well preserved example of a United States coastal defense gun emplacement

    Pace : L2

    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 the distance range (41-49 miles). 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 1-2pm, and an after ride coffee or meal stop is customary (unless we do that coffee stop mid ride).

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