I'm helping organize the Santa Clarita Century for 2010. It would be great to see some of you BFers out for it. I'll be at the start/finish area & expo all day. Let me know you're there if come by. Here's some of the information:
7am -- 100-mile route (7,000' of climbing)
8am -- 58-mile route (3,000' of climbing)
9am -- 25-mile route (500' of climbing)
10:30am -- Family Fun Ride (6-miles)
All routes start/finish at the Valencia Town Center, corner of Magic Mountain Pkwy & Citrus Street.
The Santa Clarita Century
features a long, gradual uphill to the eastern edge of our valley, a hard climb up to Angeles Forest Highway, and then works its way back into the valley, allowing riders to enjoy nice long, sweeping descents before the finish in Valencia. Road traffic is minimized on rural roads, with a few, flavorful sojourns into city & village environs.
All routes feature fully stocked SAG stops and roving mechanical support, directional arrows, and cue sheets. All routes return to the finish line utilizing a few miles of Santa Clarita's excellent trail & paseo system. While other users will be present, the paths are paved, wide and not over-crowded.
Century riders start at 7am, 58-mile riders at 8:00, 25-mile riders at 9:00, and the family fun ride at 10:30. If mass starts aren't your thing, feel free to leisurely roll out following any of the starting groups.
