Meet Time:

Join us on this great hill climbing ride in Palos Verdes, we call it the PRETZEL RIDE.

We will ride to Palos Verdes via the Beach Cities from HELEN’S CYCLES MANHATTAN BEACH. Our first quick pit stop will be at Malaga Cove before we start our 3-mile climb. You’ll have a nice descent down Crenshaw in Palos Verdes followed by the switchbacks of Palos Verdes Dr. East. Your final climb will be up Hawthorne from the ocean side. Before we start our climb, we will have a short pit stop at Starbucks/ Subway overlooking the beautiful coast. After your 3-mile climb up Hawthorne, you’ll be rewarded with a nice downhill on our way back to HELEN’S CYCLES MANHATTAN BEACH.

PLEASE be prepared for your rides! Bring 2 tubes, energy bar, water & electrolyte replacement, make sure your tires are pumped and you are ready to ride.
