    Stops on the Ride
    $5.00

    Note: You must register online in advance for this event- there is no late or day-of-event registration.  Registration closes at noon two days before the ride.  You must be a member of RUSA and PCH Randonneurs to register.

    This is a nice 100k that includes one of the best cycling roads in Southern California, Glendora Mountain Road.  There is about 5,000 feet of total ascent, but the gentle, steady gradients and terrific views will take your mind off the hard work.

    The ride begins in Pasadena, follows the usual surface streets to GMR, then climbs up to the high point (3300 ft) at the Caltrans Maintenance Shed.  From there you will descend down the backside of GMR to the East Fork Road and ride along the San Gabriel river.  You pass the Camp Williams Cafe (which may or may not be open), after which you will head over to Highway 39 where you will go 0.5 mile up the hill to the OHV (Off-Highway Vehicle) area.  There is a water spigot on the south side of the little building near the entrance.  Next you will turn around and descend out of the mountains on Hwy 39 and head back to Pasadena.

    There will be no SAG support for this ride.  Riders should carry enough food to get through the ride.  There are places to fill up water on the route.

    The Lazy Acres 100K Populaire is a scenic out and back coastal route from the west end of Ventura to Lazy Acres Market in Santa Barbara. The first 13 and last 13 miles of the route is on Old PCH on the shoreline. In Carpinteria, there is a rolly jaunt along the foothills then on to Summerland, Montecito and up Cabrillo Blvd in Santa Barbara. If you missed anything on the way up, you can resee most of it on the return. 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.

    Stops on the Ride
    $10.00

    Note:  You must register in advance for this ride- registration closes at noon on Friday before the ride.  There is no late registration or day-of-event registration.  You must be a member of both PCH Randonneurs and RUSA in order to register. 

    Description: This course is as flat as it gets for an out and back from Moorpark to Santa Barbara Harbor and back to Moorpark. 

    The initial climb out of Moorpark will help warm the system up for the 8 mile gentle descent down Santa Rosa Road to Camarillo. The route crosses the Oxnard Plain to the coast and at Harbor Blvd. turns north to Ventura. You will then travel Route 1 or Old PCH and the new coastal bike path to Carpinteria. Carpinteria, a busy beach town only 12 miles from SB Harbor, is a great stop for coffee or late breakfast. The route then using surface streets, parallels the 101 Freeway to Summerland and over the Ortega Hill bike path to Montecito. Then navigate the roundabout to Santa Barbara’s majestic and popular Cabrillo Blvd, so keep your eyes alert to the road as it’s easy to be distracted. Sushi Go-Go and On the Alley are good places for bite to eat while looking over the Santa Barbara Harbor with your bike in view as well. The Harbor Market is steps away for those that want to grab and go for a quick turnaround.

    Missed something on the way out? You get a chance to see all of it again on the way home, usually with a good tailwind.

    This is an unsupported ride.  Riders will need to obtain their own food and water out on the course.  There is no SAG.

    This is a super flat ride along the Rio Hondo and San Gabriel River Trails.  The ride begins in Arcadia and uses mostly bath trails to get to Seal Beach, where you can enjoy a nice coffee and pastry break.  The route then retraces the same bike trails back to Arcadia.  At the finish you can enjoy lunch at Goldstein's Bagel Bakery (where they make genuine boiled NY style bagels) or at the nearby In-N-Out.

    Do not park in the Goldstein's lot- it is small and you will be towed.  There is street parking available on La Porte and Flower streets near the start.  The start is also very close to the Arcadia Gold Line station if you would prefer to take Metro.

    This is an unsupported ride.  Riders will need to obtain their own food and water out on the course.  There is no SAG.

    Red Box Picnic Area

    California, CA

    At intersection of Mt Wilson Red Box Rd and Angeles Crest Highway.  About 14 miles up Hwy 2 from La Canada.

    Registration is not open

    Overnight Ride



    Registration is on hold for now because of multiple closures on Highway 2.  If Hwy 2 doesn't open, we won't hold the ride.

    Note:  You must register in advance for this ride- registration closes at noon on Thursday before the ride.  There is no late registration or day-of-event registration. You must be a member of both RUSA and PCH Randonneurs to register.

    Join us for a moonlit summer ride in the San Gabriel Mountains.  This Populaire begins at Red Box (where the Mt Wilson Rd meets the Angeles Crest Highway) and climbs to Dawson Saddle, the highest point on the Angeles Crest Highway at 7900 ft.  The return to Red Box is much easier- mostly descent with only a few climbing sections.  This is a challenging ride because of all the climbing, but the gradients are very reasonable- nothing too steep.  And there are no stop signs or traffic lights to slow you down.  Easiest navigation ever- just one U-turn!

    On this night the moon is close to being a full moon-  It should be high in the sky for most of our ride.  In August the night temperatures, even at elevation, won't be too cold.  I hope traffic will be light because most of the hikers and sports car drivers should have gone home already.

    The ride is free.  But all vehicles will need an Adventure Pass to park at the start location.  If you have a National Parks lifetime senior pass, that works too.

    Full lights and reflective gear are required.  Please see Article 10 of the RUSA Rules for Riders.  There will be an inspection at the start.

    This is an unsupported ride- there is no SAG vehicle.  Water will be stashed somewhere along the Crest so you can fill up on the climb to Dawson.  Riders will need to carry enough food for the entire ride.

    Overnight Ride



    Note: You must register in advance.  Registration closes at 10:00pm two days 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 7th SoCal Winter Solstice Ride.   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, about 67 miles into the ride.  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.

    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 A 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 A 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.  

    This is an unsupported ride.  Riders will need to obtain their own food and water out on the course.  There is no SAG.
