SFVBC Route - SANTA PAULA CENTURY

http://www.sfvbc.org/load_pdf.php?ride=908&evt=799

I am thinking of doing this ride tomorrow (slighty modified with a Thousand Oaks start / finish) on my own since we are supposed to have nice weather.

To those that have done this ride, do you have any elevation gain data ?

Thanks !

I don't have data, but the full century only has ~4k feet, I think. There is Santa Susana pass (twice), and Grimes and some rollers on South Mountain and Tierra Rejada on the way back. Not a big climb ride.

Thanks John... Sounds like a relatively easy ~100 for a lazy Sunday.

Easy? Uh-huh. You'd smoke me if I joined although it is sooo tempting. But since I rode 100 today, you wouldn't want my somewhat tired legs slowing you down.

With all the wind today I took the day off. I still want to do this ride and will re-sched it for sometime later this month.

It calm in Burbank...but I went out on an SFVBC ride this morning and it was nasty in Northridge...
The wierdest was going down Winnetka with a tailwind..I was doing about 21mph and the wind was blowing the leaves faster than I was riding!!
Going back to CSUN was really hard...I lead a paceline up White Oak...it was brutal...
