Circling San Fernando Century

Sunday, November 11, 2018

This is our century of the month for November. As the name implies, we will be riding pretty much around the perimeter of the San Fernando Valley today. However, we will be starting in West LA, so no need to drive out to the valley for this one. We start with a climb up Sepulveda (the biggest climb of the day) and then along Mulholland Dr. to the east (which really is about as close to the southern perimeter of the valley as you can get. We then go to the northeast corner of the valley (this is a long gradual uphill which actually takes you to the same elevation as the top of Sepulveda) then it is west across the valley and around the Chatsworth lake area before heading south. Finally, instead of going back east to complete our circle, we head out Mulholland Hwy from Calabasas and cut to the coast on Malibu Canyon and circle back to the start on the coast. Besides the initial climb there are several other smaller climbs sprinkled throughout the route that might get your attention, but nothing you can’t handle. We will offer a metric century as well. It will start with the full century but make a smaller circle of the valley and return back over Sepulveda. It stays with the full century for about the first 43 miles to the early lunch location on the full century and then splits off for the shorter return. START: WESTWOOD PARK Sepulveda and Ohio.  From San Diego Frwy (405), off and east on Santa Monica Blvd, Left on Sepulveda and L on Ohio and R into Park. (century 94 mi and 6100 ft, metric century 68 mi and 4200 ft)
