    This 200km ride follows the Santa Ana River from Huntington Beach to San Bernardino and back. It's a pleasant route along the the river and you are guaranteed to see lots of bird life!
    The majority of the ride is on the Santa Ana River Trail, a paved multi-use path, except for the portion between Green River and Norco where the multi-use path has not yet been completed.
    Unless the Santa Ana winds are blowing, expect consistent headwinds on the way back!
    This is the same route as Terry Hutt's Summer Night Audax ride.

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

    This a very popular, fast 300k brevet. We start by heading through Corona to the Santa Ana River Trail and following it all the way to Huntington Beach and the first control. There we head north either on the beach path or PCH (your choice) and then inland on the San Gabriel trail to Las Lomas. This is a 45 mile stretch so stock up on calories. The climb over the Santa Fe dam is scenic if you look to the mountains. At Las Lomas we will forage at the 7-11 control.

    Now we back-track for a while until we hop over to the Rio Hondo bike path. There’s a quarter mile stretch of dirt that’s normally rideable, but we can walk it without losing much time. Next we’re on the Los Angeles River trail dealing with headwind for ten miles or so. As we enter the Long Beach marina there are many routes through the area – the important thing is the keep the water somewhere on the right. At Belmont pier we will head inland for a block and choose between many controls such as Chronic Tacos, Jack-in-the-box, Arco, Vons, 7-11, and others.

    Then we return to the beach path and follow it a little longer and some quiet(ish) roads until PCH which we follow to Newport Beach. Now we ride more bike paths to one of my favorite controls at Crossroads shopping center in Lake Forest. It’s hard to beat sitting by the illuminated fountain as the light fades while eating Pad Thai. The last section is a mixture of bike paths and quiet roads but contains some climbs – noticeably Pioneer Way and Green River Road.  Food will be provided at the finish.

    Total distance is 188 miles with 4000ft of climbing. Because it is so flat, has few stop lights or stop signs, and only has four intermediate controls, many riders have completed this route in under 12 hours. Most riders set a personal best on this route. It is ideal for randonneurs attempting their first 300k and for experienced riders looking for a personal best 300k time.

    If you are a 5 Rivers 300 veteran, note that we have moved the start/finish motel because the reviews of the Hotel del Sol have declined recently.  The new start motel is the Desert Inn Motel.  

    Full lights and reflective gear are required.  Please see Article 10 of the RUSA Rules for Riders.

    $10.00

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

    This ride goes through some really beautiful areas of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.  Starting in Ventura, you will head east through the Santa Clarita River Valley on South Mountain Rd to Fillmore and the first control at a well known coffee shop.  Leaving Fillmore, you will head back west to Santa Paula where you will begin the gentle climb to Ojai on Highway 150, passing over Dennison grade, the first bump of the double bump.  There is another control in Ojai before you continue along Highway 150 over the second bump, Casitas Pass.  You will then decend to Carpinteria and head west through the foothills of Montecito. The third control, a great place for lunch, is Pierre LaFond bakery.  After eating something yummy, on you go through the foothills of Santa Barbara onto East Mountain Drive, which has fabulous views of the Santa Barbara harbor below.  You will descend into downtown Santa Barbara and then follow the usual coastal route back to Ventura.  

    The route has about 6500ft of climbing, so it is a good ride for improving your climbing fitness.

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

    $120.00
    Registration is not open

    SAG Service Available



    Note- The running of this ride involves lots of logistics, which Willie is working on.  Registration will open after permits have been approved and the return transportation has been arranged.

    The Joshua Tree to Vegas 300k is a full service shuttled Brevet from the Los Angeles / Orange County area to the start, with SAG support in route across the massive Mojave desert, finish at the M Resort Spa Casino (south of the Vegas strip), and a shuttle back to Joshua Tree and then LA / OC on Sunday.  Most riders park their cars near the start in Joshua Tree (on the city streets) and take the provided charter bus shuttle service back to Joshua Tree after the ride. We have plenty of space to accommodate everyone that wants shuttle back from Vegas to Joshua Tree.  There are 2 Motels (Joshua Tree Inn and High Desert) within a few minutes of the start for those wanting to maximize sleep before the ride.   Some riders come to my home in Foothill Ranch, CA for a 3:00AM departure to Joshua Tree and I can accommodate up to 5 riders for this extra shuttle.

    Alternatively, for riders flying into the LA area, John Wayne airport (SNA) is the closest to Willie and thus the easiest logistically for pickup.  Bike boxes will be taken to Vegas for any riders that wants to fly from Vegas directly home.  On the Las Vegas end, some riders may want to fly back home from Vegas. Bikes will be shuttled back to LA / OC even if you fly, just leave bikes and excess gear with Willie.

    The route itself has huge expansive views across the Mojave desert including mountains, sand dunes, Joshua trees, railroad lines, the Ivanpah solar power plant, even the casino lights of Primm, Jean and Vegas. Riders can see for 50+ miles at several vista points. Traffic is generally quite light and often 10 or 15 minutes go by without a car passing. Climbing is reasonable at 8500 feet, but concentrated mostly 2 massive climbs, and 2 smaller climbs. Wind is normally blowing toward Vegas, so it’s possible to have a tailwind the whole way there! Pavement quality is good for the most part as most has been recently repaved, but there are a number of miles that have a few avoidable potholes. 23mm tires will work, but 25 or 28mm would be wiser. Since cell connectivity is limited and spotty, the SAG will sweep the route to make sure no one is left out there.

    Important:

    All riders need to contact Willie Hunt well before the ride so shuttle space can be logistically handled.

    All riders need to make their own room reservations at the M Resort Spa Casino, or other hotel/motel in Vegas.  I encourage riders to room share, as unfortunately the M Resort Spa Casino is running $150 to $200 a night.  Other places just a few miles away are much cheaper.  I’ll be happy to share room space too, floor space with pad and sleeping bag is a cheap option, as the rooms are huge.

    Drop bags will be taken to Vegas and normally are available at each SAG stop in route.  However, I cannot guarantee that your drop bag will be available at every stop, because there will be 2 SAG’s and they will be spread out, one in the lead, and one following up the rear.  You choose at the start which SAG for your drop bag, depending on your riding speed.

    Generally the return shuttle will leave at 8 to 9AM Sunday morning, so you may want to limit the partying in Vegas Saturday night!

    This ride has a bit of suburban riding as well as many miles on river trails.  It begins in Pasadena, travels the San Gabriel River Trail down to Seal Beach, zips down the coast on PCH to Huntington Beach, takes the SART all the way up to San Bernardino, and returns to Pasadena on mostly bike-friendly roads near the foothills.  There will be food and drinks at Kerin's house at the finish.

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

    Verdugo Park and Ride
    1939 Verdugo Blvd
    La Cañada Flintridge, California 91011

    $20.00

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

    This brevet goes up two of the very finest cycling roads in SoCal- Glendora Mountain Road and Glendora Ridge Road.  In the spring these roads are exceptionally beautiful with wildflowers dotting the hillsides, and the views are amazing.  There is a tad over 8000 feet of climbing on this ride, but almost none of it is steep.  A great ride to help build your fitness for longer brevets coming up.

    The brevet starts in La Canada Flintridge, works its way over to GMR using the usual route along the base of the foothills.  You will climb up GMR, which holds a steady 5-6% for the entire 8 mile climb up to the junction with Glendora Ridge Road.  You might very well see more cyclists than cars on this road.  At the fork you will bear right to follow the ups and downs (mostly ups in the east-bound direction) of the Ridge Road to Mt Baldy Village, where you can replenish food and water at a staffed control.  After recovering a bit at the control you will be ready for the white-knuckle descent to Upland on Mt. Baldy Road/ Mountain Ave.  Once back in civilization you will head east to Etiwanda on a residential out-and-back segment.  The remainder of the ride is spent traveling the usual bike routes in the San Gabriel Valley to work your way back to La Canada.  

    This brevet will have a staffed control at Mt Baldy Village (mile 49), but other than that each rider is responsible for finding their own water and food along the route.  There is no place to get water on GMR/GRR until you get to Baldy Village, so if it's a hot day you may want to bring a camelback or an extra water bottle.  There is no SAG vehicle.
