Century ideas from the Valley
I've been working toward preparing to do a 100 mile ride. My longest so far has been 60 miles. I ride alone primarily since my work schedule doesn't seem to be conducive to group events.
As I get closer to the 100mi mark, I'm looking for suggestions on where to go.
I live in the San Fernando Valley, not too far from the Orange Line bikeway, near Woodman. I prefer riding from my own front door. If I'm going to ride 100 miles, I may as well ride from my home rather than driving to the route.
Some possibilities I've considered: Take Sepulvida to Manhattan Beach, continuing south along the PCH to Long Beach and back. That should be about 100 round trip.
Take either Sepulvida or Topanga Canyon to Malibu, and continue north, to the outskirts of Oxnard and back.
Stay in LA, touring the city somehow. There's an LA river loop?
Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I'm going to do this in August, so heat could be an issue inland.
