    This Populaire starts in Ventura at the parking lot near Mission Park.  The ride begins by heading up the coast to Carpinteria, where it veers inland on Highway 150 to climb Casitas Pass from the west to Ojai.  There is a loop around Ojai before a return to Ventura using Santa Ana Rd and the Ventura River trail.  There is a little over 3,000 feet of climbing on this ride, but it's mostly downhill after mile 49.

    The Channel Islands 200K has 2 main portions. The first, control-heavy leg does a circumnavigation of the Oxnard Plain, with controls at Ventura and Channel Islands Harbors, Port Hueneme Beach and a stop at Somis Market, where a seriously good burrito can be had. After Somis, the route returns to Ventura, where you pass your vehicle and you can drop off or pick up clothes.

    The second leg is an out and back along the coast to Santa Barbara Harbor. The only obstacle may be the headwind on the way to Santa Barbara. The same headwind is usually a welcome tailwind on the way back to Ventura. Daylight length is less than 10 hours at this time of the year- unless you are really fast be sure to have lights and reflective gear. Though this can be a very fast course, be prepared for the possibility of being out in the dark if delays happen. The course, barring coastal fog, has views of the Channel Islands off the coast of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. The coast is usually very mild, with lows in the 50’s, and highs in the 70’s.

    This is a minimally unsupported ride- riders are responsible for finding their own water and food out on the course.  There is no SAG vehicle.

    Extended Stay Yorba Linda
    22711 Oakcrest Circle

    $10.00

    Note: You must register in advance for this ride, there is no day-of-event registration.  Registration closes at noon on the Thursday before the ride.

    If you would enjoy a cruise with fellow randonneurs on the San Gabriel, Los Angeles and Santa Ana River Trails, come join us for the Yorba Linda 200k (aka the Orange 200k). It starts at the Extended Stay hotel in Yorba Linda- public parking is available.

    The route makes extensive use of bike paths, making it safe, flat, and fast. With just 1900' of climbing and very few stop lights or signs, you'll be finished before you know it.  But you should still bring lights and reflective gear because we run out of daylight early in November.

    We quickly get on the SART, ride down to Huntington Beach, and up the coast on the beach path or PCH to the San Gabriel bike path. We follow this inland to El Monte and return to Long Beach on the Rio Hondo and Los Angeles River bike paths. A good spot for lunch is Control #4 at the Chronic Tacos at the Belmont Pier.  Head on back along the coast until we reach the SART again and ride home, hopefully with a nice tailwind.

    This is a minimally supported ride.  Riders are responsible for obtaining their own water and food on the course.  There is no SAG vehicle.

    Come burn off a few excess Thanksgiving calories with a 103km Populaire- much more fun than going shopping!  This is a ride from Pasadena that does a scenic tour of San Dimas- including Via Verde, Bonelli Park, and San Dimas Canyon.  The ride has a bit of climbing, but overall it's not too hard.

    This is a minimally supported ride. Riders are responsible for obtaining their own food and water on the course.  There is no SAG vehicle.

    Overnight Ride



    Note: You must register in advance.  Registration closes at 10 PM on Thursday before the ride - there is no day-of-event registration.  You must be a member of RUSA and PCH Randonneurs to register.

    Ride Description- Come join us for the 6th SoCal Winter Solstice Ride, reappearing after getting COVID canceled in 2020.  (It's an Almost Winter Solstice ride- we're not doing the ride on the actual solstice, but having the ride on Saturday makes it easier for people with jobs.)   Get out your thermal tights, decorate your bike with holiday lights, and join a group of other crazies riding through the longest night of the year.    The route is a mostly flat, point-to-point ride from Pasadena to Oceanside.  We start with a little loop of South Pasadena and La Canada, then head over to the San Gabriel River Trail.  The River Trail takes us all the way to Seal Beach, then we'll follow the coastal route to Oceanside.  The start and finish are both at train stations with parking, so it is fairly easy to handle the logistics.

    Although the ride is not technically an audax-style ride, riding with others is strongly encouraged, especially on the SGRT at night.  In keeping with the holiday spirit, you are invited to enjoy a midnight meal together at the Harbor House Cafe in Sunset Beach(COVID conditions permitting), about 67 miles into the ride.  The dinner is included in the ride fee.  One of the best things about this ride is seeing all the Christmas lights as we ride through the towns.  You are encouraged to decorate your bike too- you'll be tickled at the positive reactions this elicits from car drivers and pedestrians.

    This is a minimally supported ride.  There is no SAG vehicle.

    Parking- There is overnight parking available at the Sierra Madre Villa Station and at the Oceanside Station.  If you live in the LA area, you can drive to the SMV Station, or better yet take the Gold Line train there.  After you finish in Oceanside on Sunday morning, you can take the train (either Amtrak or Metrolink) to Union Station, and then the Gold Line back to SMV Station.  If you live in the San Diego area, you can park at the Oceanside Station and take the train to the start.
