2017 Kick Off Centuries

Monday, January 01, 2018

This is our 16th year riding a January 1st Century. The count in the club’s century challenge gets reset to zero today, so why not start the year off with your first century or metric century and get the ball rolling on a personal best year of riding. When I started this century 16 years ago my idea was that if you rode a century on the first day of the year, it would set the tone for the entire year to come. I can’t say that it has always worked out that way, but I still like the idea. The full century is pretty easy as centuries go  just up the coast to Ventura and return. No hills bigger than those along PCH. The metric century follows the full century up the coast to Camarillo where it stops for brunch or lunch. It then simply turns around and retraces the route back down the coast to the start. There is no support on these centuries, but none is really needed. January 1st is a fairly quiet day on PCH  everyone is watching football or has a hangover. Kick the year off with a century and you won’t regret it. Be sure to report your century or metric century for the club’s Century Challenge in 2018 and get the club kicked off to a good start as well. START: MALIBU CIVIC CENTER. Take the Santa Monica Frwy west to the end and then PCH north to R on Webb Way and R on Civic Center Way.  (full century – 101 mi and 3100 ft, metric century – 66 mi and 2000 ft)
