Don’t eat too much because we will be riding up the 3mile hill on Hawthorne Blvd to a short pit stop the Shell Gas Station(Yes they have a restroom we can use) at the a wonderful 3mile down hill on another spectacular view on top of PV Estates over looking to the North towards PCH. Take it easy on this wonderful windy road down to the back of Malaga Cove to towards the Palos Verdes Golf Course climb some rolling hills and back to Helen’s Cycle Bike Shop. Please RSVP and if you need direction please call me. Please DO NOT Park in front please park in back along the gated wall.

This is the perfect ride for building up your miles and getting in some great training for upcoming centuries (and of course ALC), so join us for a beautiful ride!

All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win!
