    Trying to put together a group to ride from Long beach to COMO and Back 100 miles.

    Hi!

    I'm trying to put together a group of riders that are interested in doing weekly ride of 100 miles from Long Beach Marina (start of Ny ride) to Como street ride (tustin) and back for a total of 100 miles.

    Start time is 6am distance to Como street 27 miles (pch to jamboree), so going at 22mph gives us +- 1:30 min with a 30 min emergency buffer for flats.

    then do a Como ride, have some tea of coffe and then ride back moderate/easy pace.

    Its total of 100 miles with decent amount of hills and speedwork, in addition you can expect your fitness and aerobic capacity to skyrocket in 1-2 weeks after doing this ride.

    If you plan on racing in 2009 this ride will prepare you for anything racing calendar throws at you whether its a stage races, crits or track.

    The only hard part is to wake up at 5am to to be at marina at 6 am.


    This is the route:

    It shows 27 miles so that means if we have at least 2+ people we can pace it at 22-25 MPH and get there at appx 1hour and 20 min.

    ride starts at 8 am, so we have to be at marina at 6 am. (have error margin for red lights and flats)

    We return same exact way back. the ride itself is nothing more then a loop it starts and ends at exact same spot and appx 30 miles.
    its over by 10 am. so depending on how fast you ride back ( i usually take my time when by myself) you can be back in marina around noon.

    this is the route of the Como street ride:

    I'd totally be in if I didn't live so far away. I'd have to get up at like 4am. No fun.
